How would you like to eat rich, flavorful, healthy food at home and not worry about calories?
Today show nutritionist Joy Bauer has helped millions of people improve their health, and now she wants to improve their home-cooked meals as well. Tired of the misconception that you have to dine out to eat delicious food, Joy proves in Slim and Scrumptious that not only can you eat fresh, rich, and filling food, but that it is quick, affordable, and easy, too!
Slim and Scrumptious features more than seventy-five recipes for every meal and every taste. Whether you want Double Chocolate Pancakes or Eggs Benedict for breakfast, Sesame Chicken Tenders or Spicy Pork Tacos with Sassy Slaw for lunch, or Spice-Rubbed Flank Steak with Chimichurri and Creamy Spinach for dinner, Joy shows you that classic, rich food can still be made to taste great with just a fraction of the fat and calories. She also includes fun snacks, desserts, and appetizers that will keep you satisfied all day long, such as Cinnamon Cheesecake Fondue, Frozen Hot Chocolate, and Banana Pecan Bread.
With every recipe, Joy helps you stretch your food and cooking dollars for everything from a fast and easy family meal to a relaxing and romantic dinner for two. These meals are so amazingly delicious, no one (but the chef!) will ever know that they're healthy, too.

I have only had this book for a week and I can't wait to try all the recipes. The 3 I have cooked so far (Beef and Bell Pepper, Turkey Meatballs and AJ's Mac n Cheesy) have been a huge hit, not only with me, but my family. They have been pouring over the pages and fighting over what they want me to make next. Finally, meals I can cook that are not only healthy but tasty enough that everyone in my family will eat them. No more cooking something for me and then something else for them. This is HUGE!! Joy, thanks for making it enjoyable, easy and most importantly healthy.
Since making my purchase I've cooked:
**The Chicken Fettuccine Alfradeo with Sun-dried Tomatoes (pg 88)
**The Italian Chicken and Sausage Stew (pg 68). Yummmm! Both are easy to assemble and taste delicious. I had tons leftover (there are just two of us) and both recipes freeze just fine.
**The Creamed Spinached recipe (pg 185) is the only way I can get spinach into my husbands diet. It's now a side dish at least a once a week.
**I was intrigued by the Crispy Kale recipe (pg 177). I admit I used foil on the cookie-sheet, (A NO-NO) this resulted in the kale starting to BURN at 8 minutes. I was amazed with the lite-airy texture of the kale. Each piece melted in my mouth. I do think kale is an acquired taste. I'll try the recipe again without the foil.
"Slim and Scrumptious" will be my primary "girlfriend" Christmas gift this season. Many thanks Joy, for creating this wonderful, healthy, easy cookbook.
