Comfort Food Fix
Feel Good Favorites Made Healthy
(Wiley, November 2010)
Here you get all your favorite comfort foods in a healthier way, with hearty dishes like meatloaf, lasagna, chicken pot pie, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and pizza plus treats like chips, puddings, pies and more – made over to be healthier but with all the decadent taste you expect. I also include sumptuous comfort foods you might not ordinarily think of but will surely love, like French onion soup, Autumn Vegetable Curry and Buckwheat with Bowties. Each recipe contains a side-by-side nutrition comparison of my “fixed” version of the recipe versus a typical version. You’ll be amazed at how simple substitutions can dramatically reduce calories, saturated fat, sodium, and cholesterol while increasing fiber, nutrients and antioxidants – all without sacrificing flavor.
