The Food You Crave

(post, Culinate staff)

Do you think that healthy food couldn’t possibly taste good? Does the idea of “eating healthy” conjure up images of roughage and steamed vegetables? Author Ellie Krieger, host of Food Network’s “Healthy Appetite,” will change all that.

A registered dietitian, Krieger is also a lover and proponent of good, fresh food, simply but deliciously prepared. And she’s not about denial. There are no nonfat foods here, because when you take the fat out of natural foods, in go the chemicals.

The Food You Crave is all you’ll need to change the way you eat and change the way you feel. It contains 200 recipes that cover every meal of the day and every craving you might have. Every recipe contains a complete nutritional breakdown, as well as tips on ingredients and techniques that will keep you eating smart and eating well.
