Americans are eating out less and, more and more oft en, theirfood decisions are being driven by two main things: budgetand health. EatingWell
marries these two trends in the newcookbook EatingWell on a Budget
. It shows you how to makenutritious dinners that everyone in the family will love and getthem on the table quickly without spending more-in mostinstances-than $3 a person. We cost out the ingredients, tellreaders how to get the most nutrition bang for their buck, andeven show them where to splurge and where to save.
