When you hear the words "healthy food," it's all too easy to think of bland, uninspired, or unfamiliar food that takes all the pleasure out of cooking and eating. What often prevents us from practicing healthy eating habits: the wealth of misinformation out there about what foods are healthy and the idea that we have to sacrifice the flavor that makes food such an enjoyable part of life. With a little nutrition science and a few culinary tricks-both available in this DVD and book set, it turns out that healthy food is easy to understand and, when prepared well, is a treat to your palate. Healthy food doesn't have to compromise on taste; rather, imaginative preparation can enhance the natural flavors of food while providing you with enormous health benefits. What you eat, and how you prepare it, has a profound impact not only on the way you look but on the way you feel. Multiple scientific studies have confirmed the benefits of a healthy diet for reducing the risk factors for obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even certain cancers. Filmed on location at the CIA's Greystone campus in the heart of Napa Valley, these lessons are packed with scientific insights and tasty dishes -whether you're a novice cook or a seasoned home chef. In these six lessons delivered by Dr. Connie Guttersen and Chef Bill Briwa, two master instructors from The Culinary Institute of America, you'll discover Specific nutritional benefits of foods commonly found in grocery stores, What's true and what's false about nutrition and diet, How specific culinary techniques and ingredients can transform healthy foods into taste sensations, Why international cuisines are a key component of a healthy diet, and, most important, How easy and fun it is to cook with health and nutrition in mind.
