Are you stressed out over how to feed your family a nutritious meal at the end of a long, busy day without turning to convenience foods or the drive-through? Now, the nation's most trusted authority on heart-healthy living presents a cookbook bursting with nourishing, flavorful recipes to please the palates of family members of all ages. Since the main dish is usually the starting point of meal planning, more than half the recipes in this book are for entrées.

Here's how they're organized:
• Everyday Dinners
• Busy Nights
• Plan-Aheads
• Cook Once, Eat Twice

To help you incorporate additional vegetables, fruits, and grains into your family's diet, we've included Make It a Meal, a special feature that suggests accompaniments--salads and soups, vegetable and grain side dishes, and even desserts--for many of the main dishes.

Most of us know that we should consume more fruits and vegetables each week, include fish and lean meats in our diet and whole grains, while cutting back on sodium and cholesterol. Yet, at the end of each day, practice just doesn’t come into the picture. Well, here are over one hundred tasty and tempting recipes that won’t strain your budget or lead to exhaustion! Many dishes can be made ahead and simply served when the family has assembled for a meal.

It’s Greek to Me Chicken, Citrus Tilapia, Easy Stuffed Chicken and Meat Loaf Mud Pies can all be prepared in under thirty minutes. Blueberry-Apple Slushes, Chill-Out Sundae Pie, Asian Vegetable Soup and Ginger-Beef Stir Fry are a colorful feast for the eyes and Chicken Parmesan and Shrimp Tacos give dinner real pizzazz.

Each recipe is carefully detailed with caloric intake and a breakout of trans fat, sodium, cholesterol, carbs and protein included with each selection. There are also helpful hints on additional items that can be added to make each tasty dish a full meal. Stunning photographs round out this excellent cookbook. I found quite a few ideas in here myself and cannot wait to have my family try some of these recipes.

recipes in this book make heavy use of 'funky foods' such as nonfat whip cream.
definitely not a whole foods approach

One of the best books I have found for healthful low sodium meals that my family will actually eat!
