More About This Title Chef Express: Healthy Family Recipes

English

Gone are the days when healthy eating meant boring food. Today there is an awareness of the need to develop eating habits that include foods which are lower in fat, sugar and salt and higher in dietary fiber. But no one wants to eat food that is tasteless. This book makes the most of fresh ingredients to create delicious dishes that will be enjoyed by the whole family... and by all who care to try them. Even if you are a weight watcher or a vegetarian, there will be many recipes of interest to you. With the multitude of food “scares” that regularly appear in the media, feeding the family has become a source of concern for many people. If you are one of them, stop worrying. Here is the proof that healthy eating and good food can go hand in hand. We have endeavored to present you with attractive recipes consisting of everyday wholesome and natural ingredients, prepared and cooked in the most simple manner. Vegetables, fruit, low fat dairy products, cereal and grain foods such as pasta, rice, bread, polenta, couscous and flour are all high in fiber and low in fat. For healthy cooking, use them as the main ingredients, include reasonable quantities of fish, lean meat or chicken without the skin and add very little oil, butter or margarine. However, it should be remembered that not everything you eat will be low in fat and high in fiber –the secret to a healthy eating plan is to balance what you eat.
