New York Times food columnist and bestselling cookbook author Marian Burros knows that the pleasures of food and healthful eating habits are not mutually exclusive. Millions of readers trust her to keep them informed of the most recent trends and developments on food and nutrition. They also know her delicious but no-nonsense recipes and strategic approach to cooking result in meals that please the palate yet still reflect the recommendations of the new Food Guide Pyramid. In Eating Well Is the Best Revenge, Burros has collected over 100 of the menus from her weekly column, "Plain and Simple", and created a cookbook that meets all the demands of today's busy, concerned, and sophisticated home cook. Here are recipes that reflect the wide range of flavors and cooking styles that Americans relish, that are as good to eat as they are good for you, that meet the latest and most sound nutritional requirements, and that can be easily and speedily prepared from fresh ingredients. All the work of figuring out nutritional values and making sure meals meet today's requirements has been done for you, so each menu follows the new government guidelines for a low-fat, high-carbohydrate, moderate-protein diet. Additional features include a game plan for preparing each menu, a user's guide to quick-cook ingredients, a pantry list that lets you shop in the express lane, and mail-order sources. There are tips on how to reduce fat in your cooking, and a simple guide to the new Food Guide Pyramid. Burros has also sorted through all the studies, reports, tests, expert opinions, and government agency press releases for you, and in a special section provides the most up-to-date information on food safety andthe new labeling laws.
