The Essential EatingWell Cookbook

by Patsy Jamieson

This long-awaited collection of more than 350 recipes represents favorites from EatingWell, The Magazine of Food & Health, that have migrated to the top of an elite heap of new and classic dishes now numbering well into the thousands.

These are the exciting new recipes our own staff members take home at night alongside the time-tested winners that dedicated readers call and write to request over and over again. All are freshly updated, with improved nutritional analyses and an eye to today's fast-evolving nutritional guidelines.

Within these pages you'll find clear, simple and often very quick recipes. You'll also find a unique Healthy Weight-Loss Index that identifies which recipes fit into particular diet guidelines, rating them on overall health (calories, carbohydrates and fats), fiber content, and which recipes best address the needs of those on low-carbohydrate weight-loss plans. Losing weight no longer has to mean sacrificing fine dining.

Recipes include: Grilled Vegetable Salad, Sunday Sausage Strata, Vegetarian Hot Pot, Salmon with North African Flavors, Pineapple Upside-Down Muffins, and Mango Brûlée.

"Bravo for The Essential EatingWell Cookbook—it's not about dietary hysterics, but common sense and good eating."
—Steven Raichlen, author, The Barbecue Bible
