This all-purpose cookbook delivers more than 800 foolproof recipes for healthier everyday cooking—including breakfast dishes, kid-friendly favorites, meat and pasta entrées, vegetarian dishes, healthy makeovers of family classics, desserts, and more. Each recipe also includes Calories, Fat, Saturated Fat, Cholesterol, Carbohydrates, Protein, Fiber, and Sodium counts.
The book's ring bound format and intuitive grouping of recipes makes searching for a specific recipe or type of dish a breeze. Step-by step photos, make-ahead information, test kitchen tips, and ingredient and cooking "101"s make the recipes easy to follow and 100% foolproof.
The America's Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook takes a good, hard look at eating healthfully - incorporating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into recipes on a daily basis, and reducing calories from fat whenever possible while still maximizing taste.
But unlike other "healthy recipe" cookbooks that simply substitute brown rice for white, or fat-free mayonnaise for regular, every one of our recipes have been foolproofed and specifically developed for the ingredients used.
For flavorful fat-free dressing, try a Juice Reduction Vinaigrette, which has the same texture/consistency as oil when used in a vinaigrette, but has zero fat; our Mediterranean Tuna Salad uses healthy olive oil instead of mayo, and tastes even better; for a Healthier Beef Stew, replace some of the meat with portobello mushrooms and other hearty vegetables - it tastes even better than a regular beef stew because it has a more complex flavor and more interesting textures.
Our new method for Easy Stuffed Pork Loin is not only super easy (no fancy knife skills required), but the stuffing (made of fruit) actually helps prevent the lean pork from tasting dry; for satisfying Lemon Yogurt Mousse with an incredibly rich and creamy texture, we used Greek yogurt, egg whites, and just a splash of real cream.
The America's Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook will help you make simple changes in how you shop, eat, and cook—changes that will deliver a big payoff for your family's health.
