Review: The Food You Crave

Want to get a jump start on your new year’s resolution to lose weight?  Give yourself every opportunity to succeed by checking out Ellie Krieger’s bestselling cookbook, The Food You Crave.

 

As a registered dietitian and host of Healthy Living on the Food Network, Ellie has put together a great cookbook for those of us looking to lose a few pounds, stay healthy, and feel great.  The recipes cover breakfast, snacks, soups and sandwiches, salads, pastas, pizza and grains, main dishes, side dishes, and dessert.  All recipes have their full nutritional information included.

There is also a section on cooking healthy and Ellie’s philosophy when it comes to food.  From her perspective, no food is off limits.  There are just foods you should consume regularly, occasionally, and only rarely.  This is great because too many people beat themselves up after having  unhealthy food, and think all is lost when it comes to their weight goals.  Under Ellie’s system you can have your treats… as long as you balance it with eating healthy foods the majority of the time!

 

Also, the recipes reflect this balance as well.  If a higher-fat or higher-calorie ingredient is included in a recipe, it is usually less than in traditional recipes, and is balanced with lots of fresh, healthy ingredients.  A lot of the time a recipe doesn’t really need all the calories or fat that it usually has to taste great.  Its just that everyone is used to making it that way, so they continue to do so.

 

Frankly, I really appreciate getting reliable information like this from a pro.  That way I don’t feel the need to sort through… too-good-to-be-true worthless nonsense… that is out there concerning diets and weight loss.

 

The Food You Crave: Luscious Recipes for a Healthy Life by Ellie Krieger deserves some serious consideration if you are interested in finding quality information and recipes to help keep you and your family healthy, in the new year and beyond!
