Healthy Cooking for IBS : 100 Delicious Recipes to Keep You Symptom Free

1584794941


·
 
Book Description
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a somewhat vague and all-encompassing term, but to the 35 million Americans who suffer from it, it means specific and sometimes debilitating symptoms. So varied are these symptoms, though, that in 2004 alone, 281 different treatments were administered to remedy them. But one constant in all of these treatments was a change in diet, and here, finally, is the first cookbook ever to address the dietary demands of this common and chronic ailment.Created by a chef/dietician team, Healthy Cooking for IBS offers more than 100 scientifically developed and tested recipes that help alleviate the symptoms of IBS but are tasty enough for everyone in the family to enjoy. With delicious recipes for breakfasts and breads, snacks and appetizers, soups and salads, main courses, and desserts; practical...


Rachael Ray's 30-Minute Get Real Meals: Eat Healthy without Going to Extremes
Rachael Ray
1400082536
March 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Part of Ray's appeal to legions of Food TV fans is her loose, nonnitpicky approach to cooking at home. Every meal she presents can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, and she consistently emphasizes simplicity and nonfussiness. So it's no surprise that Ray's contribution to the supposedly waning low-carb cookbook genre does not strictly adhere to the diet. Ray adores carbohydrates—"I cannot and will not eat without them"—and she believes consuming them "in moderation" is a healthy option. This selection of recipes, then, does include pasta dishes, but Ray wisely makes them heavy on the meat and vegetables and low on pasta (a half pound for every four entrées). Her devoted viewers will delight at the prospect of Bucatini with Sausage, Peppers, and Onions; Creamy Polenta and Bolognese Sauce; and Eggplant and Wild...

Fast Food Fix: 75 Amazing Recipe Makeovers of Your Fast Food Restaurant Favorites
Devin Alexander
1594863105
April 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Is it possible to make fries that taste just like McDonald's with no trans-fatty-acids? Yes, but it's not easy. Blessed with an obsessive, analytical mind and cursed with a craving for Burger King, Alexander offers healthier (but not necessarily healthy) substitutes for brand name burgers, milkshakes, fries and pizza. In true fast food fashion, recipes are single servings, but some are generous enough to serve two. Though substitutions are included (use a whole wheat for a white bun or turkey for pork), Alexander reminds readers the goal is to "cut fat and calories...without affecting taste." This takes precision: though the Popeye's Cajun Battered Fries are still spicy and delicious and relatively straight-forward to make, the recipe for Hardee's 1/3-lb Western Bacon Thickburger has steps for breading onion...

Did you truly enjoy the food you ate today? Do you really like the way you look and feel? Are you consistently enjoying great health and high energy?

Canyon Ranch Cooks
Barry Correia

September 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Part nutrition guide, part kitchen primer, part healthy cookbook, this volume brings a taste of the tony Canyon Ranch spas to home cooks. The myth that healthy foods all taste like tree bark was exploded long ago, but the entries in this collection take healthy haute cuisine to new creative heights. And they should-guests of Canyon Ranch shell out big bucks, and executive chefs Correia and Uehlein need to dazzle accordingly. Few recipes are intimidating or exceedingly complicated; inventive combinations of fresh ingredients-Grapefruit and Sage Dressing, Raspberry Mustard-Crusted Chicken, Spiced Pear and Fig in Phyllo-are what make them stand out. Ninety artful, full-color photographs demonstrate how exquisite healthy foods can look. Many dishes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less (and these are helpfully...


Eating Stella Style : Low-Carb Recipes for Healthy Living
George Stella, Christian Stella
0743285212
January 3, 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The host of the Food Network's Low Carb and Lovin' It turns his popular show into text, punctuated by many exclamation points. He has a lot to be excited about: in the introduction, Stella offers his own case history as encouragement, explaining how he lost 260 pounds and helped his wife and children trim down, too, by avoiding sugar, flour and other insulin elevators. The first chapters share tips on building a strong support system and eating until you're satisfied, reading labels and shopping the outer aisles of the supermarket. Most of these will be self-evident to anyone who's tried to diet before; what Stella brings to the equation is a folksy optimism and a Dad-like sense of humor. Building on the Atkins diet, Stella's plan emphasizes fresh whole foods, and most of the recipes are starchless versions of...


Cooking Thin with Chef Kathleen
Kathleen Daelemans
0618624295
Jan 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Another "cooking light for weight loss" cookbook? Upon first glance such a reaction is understandable, especially if you're not familiar with chef Kathleen Daelemans, who has been in the trenches of the weight-loss war and not only quickly commands attention with her writing but excites a mind and lifestyle change. Cooking Thin with Chef Kathleen freely shares the author's own experiences and struggles with weight as a child and an adult, and explains how this trained chef went from a size 22 to a 6. Daelemans has what it takes to be an empathetic role model for those who need to make changes to their diets for physical or mental health reasons. Her advice and recipes are aimed at real people.

Her self-effacing stories are at times painful (such as babysitting the night she should have been going to the prom), but the...

Cooking the Whole Foods Way: Your Complete Everyday Guide to Healthy Delicious Eating with 500 Recipes, Menus, Meal Planning Techniques
Christina Pirello
1557882622
January 1997
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Christina Pirello turned to a whole-foods diet after being diagnosed with terminal leukemia at age 26. To the shock of her doctors, and without any medical treatment, she went into complete remission. She was surprised herself, as she'd been a vegetarian for more than 10 years and wasn't convinced that cutting prepackaged foods, sugar, and dairy from her diet would make that much of a difference to her health.

Pirello says, "Macrobiotics is an understanding that that food is energy, that everything we eat becomes part of us and helps create who we become." With this philosophy in mind, she advises how to plan menus, shop for quality ingredients, and combine foods for optimum energy. She then jumps right into her collection of more than 500 recipes, among them Fresh Corn Chowder, Béchamel Sauce, and Chocolate Hazelnut...

Book Description

Healthy Calendar Diabetic Cooking
Lara Rondinelli

Dec 2004
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
Dietician Rondinelli and chef Bucko make cooking five healthy dinners a week—for an entire year—look like a no-brainer in this simple cookbook. They divide their book by month, and within each month, they give four weeks’ worth of main courses (presumably for dinner, though they could certainly make nice lunches). A grocery list begins each week, followed by the recipes, which generally fall under the "continental" umbrella, with Mediterranean, Latin, Asian and other influences. Although no dish requires more than four steps, and prep times range from 5 to 20 minutes per recipe, there are plenty of intriguing dinner options, such as Three-Pepper Pasta Salad with Goat Cheese, or Chicken with Portabello Tofu Sauce. Rondinelli and Bucko also feature one dessert for each month, which are the...


The Healthy Kitchen: Recipes for a Better Body, Life and Spirit
Andrew Weil
0375413065
April 2002
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
In Eating Well for Optimum Health, one of Amazon's bestselling health books of 2000, alternative-medicine maverick Andrew Weil revealed his version of the ideal diet (and backed it up with scientific proof): a variety of unprocessed, or "whole" foods; just-picked, organic vegetables; whole grains; "good" fats, such as the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and nuts; fresh herbs and spices instead of heavy sauces; and a minimum of meat and dairy products. Eating this responsibly is certainly an admirable pursuit, but home cooking of this caliber can be intimidating, requiring much more energy than it would to pull up to the drive-through and order a burger and fries. In The Healthy Kitchen, Weil successfully teams up with Rosie Daley, formerly chef at the ritzy Cal-a-Vie Spa, to show how to cook with confidence within these...

Book Review's Best of 2001

Schneider's approach is global: not only does she provide 600 recipes for a wide range of truly satisfying, good-for-you dishes, she offers a blueprint for better eating and cooking, no matter the recipe.

Applying moderation, portion streamlining, and a number of unusual techniques--for example, you get all the flavor and satisfying mouthfeel of fat without excessive calories if you emulsify it first with water or other liquids--she offers her better way. Those of us caught between the need to eat sensibly and the...


Cooking the RealAge Way: Turn Back Your Biological Clock with More than 80 Delicious and Easy Recipes [BARGAIN PRICE]
Michael F. Roizen, John La Puma
B0002RQ1T0
June 1, 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Roizen and La Puma, who previously joined forces on The RealAge Diet, feature more than 80 recipes full of fresh produce and whole grains. As Roizen originally posited in 1999's RealAge, biological age can differ from chronological age; here the authors argue that eating certain types of foods, particularly healthy fats, whole grains and vegetables and fruits, will slow, halt or even reverse the aging process. (Eating an ounce of nuts per day, for example, "keeps the average 55-year-old man 3.3 years younger.") The authors encourage readers to increase their "Kitchen IQ"-purchasing and using a steamer, "retraining" themselves to like healthy fats and preparing more than one meal at time are a few of the strategies. Divided by season, and prefaced by a comprehensive explanation of the healthiest foods available at...

Grub : Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen
Anna Lappe, Bryant Terry
1585424595
April 6, 2006
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This smart, engaging work deftly blends polemic, lifestyle guidance and cooking expertise. The daughter of writer Francis Moore Lappé (Diet for a Small Planet) and medical ethicist Marc Lappé, coauthor Lappé wears her pedigree well, arguing passionately and articulately for the organic lifestyle (Terry is a chef and food justice activist). Early chapters explore how the advent of commercial agriculture and mass-manufactured food has led American eaters down a path to obesity and disease while undermining the local economies of farming communities and, in many cases, encouraging the exploitation of both labor and natural resources. The answer: to adopt a "grub" lifestyle that is both healthy and ethical. The "Seven Steps to a Grub Kitchen" chapter suggests readers commit more time to cooking...

Vegetarian cooking instructor Robertson (Vegan Planet) turns her attention to the growing number of slow cooker owners. Starting with Slow Cooker Basics, she takes the user through the ins and outs of the appliance from the size of machine suitable for good results to cooking times and 10 quick tips for cooking success. She also devotes a small section to those vegetarian ingredients, such as seitan, that nonvegetarians may not be familiar with. Branching out from the traditional casseroles and stews so popular in the early days of the slow cooker, she tackles appetizers, soups and desserts as well, using the appliance with great effect to produce vegetable stocks as well as flavorful offerings like the Indian-inspired Curried Cauliflower Soup with Chutney and Cashews as well as Asian-influenced Hot and Sour...

March 15, 1996
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
We know that there is life beyond broccoli and iceberg lettuce, but what is one to do with the odd-looking green things with exotic names that increasingly line the produce shelves? Albi (who recently died) and Walthers (formerly food editor for Natural Health) take a careful look at greens from arugula and dandelion to kale and mesclun and other salad greens. The authors explain their subjects' virtues and shortcomings (steamed broccoli rabe served solo can be unpleasant); how to choose them; how?and how long?to keep them; how to clean them; and, in more than 140 recipes, how to cook them. Greens need a little help, they say, and many of the recipes lean on a smattering of olive oil, garlic or raisins to bring out the flavor: Kale with Raisins and Toasted Pine Nuts; Chinese Bok Choy, Shitake and Tofu; Garlic...
