Blackwell North Amer
Ms. Fonda begins by discussing the essential principles of wellness, nutrition basics, meal planning, food shopping, eating to lose weight and exercise - presented in an informal, accessible style illuminated with fascinating anecdotes from her own life.
Following the informative introduction are three chapters devoted to recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner that emphasize seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh herbs and whole grains. Each chapter is organized into 21 menus that help you plan your meals. A broad selection of recipes in the final chapter rounds out the menus. Every recipe - 120 in all - and every menu includes a nutritional analysis to guide you toward your personal healthy-eating goals.
To assist you further, all of the recipes include preparation and cooking times and tips on substitutions, special techniques and storage. Each recipe is illustrated by a full-page color photograph. All have been specially created and kitchen-tested to be delicious enough for the most discriminating gourmet, yet easy enough for even a beginning cook to make perfectly the very first time.
