Healthful eating doesn't have to take a lot of time in the kitchen. With that in mind, I wrote my first book Quick & Healthy cookbook. Since then, I have received many requests for more recipes and menus which is why I decided to write Quick & Healthy Volume II. This book contains more simple recipes, more nutrition information and more healthful tips. I think you will agree that Volume II will be a good addition to anyone's kitchen library.
What is quick? When testing recipes, we decided that quick meant spending less time in the kitchen. Putting together the ingredients for a meal in less than 15 minutes met that criteria. However, the cooking time can take longer since this does not usually require constant attention.
Nonfat or low-fat? When testing recipes we compared the flavor using both non-fat and low-fat products. In most cases, but not all, we preferred the low-fat. Taste is very important if your family is to continue to use a low-fat product. Keep this in mind when looking at new products and find the lower fat version, whether it be low-fat or nonfat, that your family will enjoy.
If saving time is as important to you as it is to so many, be sure to use the menus and grocery lists. Make copies of the grocery lists and keep them in a handy place in the kitchen. Encourage family members to add to the list. Keep in mind that shopping once a week, instead of several times during the week, is a real time and money saver. You'll also be pleased to know that all of the ingredients used are readily available in most grocery stores.
All of the recipes are low-fat and, when combined with other foods for the day, fall within the recommendation of no more than 20% to 30% of the total calories from fat.
Besides using the recipes in this book, be sure to look at the other helpful sections. If your goal is to eat healthfully and save time, all of the information and recipes in Volume II can help you reach your goal. And remember, if you have children, your example speaks louder than words.
Enjoy in good health.
