I'm culinarily challenged and had been eating the same dishes over and over. Since I took up triathlon I was looking for a way to eat yummy healthy food and being a fan of the show I decided to try this book. I've only made a few of the recipes in here and they've all been fantastic and easy to make. One complaint is that most of the meals are grilled and I don't own a grill. It would be nice to be offered an alternative cooking method. I like that it's categorized by type of dish (main course, side, salad, etc) but type of meat would be good for the main courses. Overall this is the best cookbook I own and I use it several times a week. Highly recommended!

I was looking for a compilation of healthy recipes I could use for everyday meals. This is it! If your looking to revamp some of your famnily meals, I would recommend this book. I do agree with another reviewer that the mac & cheese was not that great but I don't care for squash that much. We did add chipotle hot sauce and it made it very mexican tasting and I ate it then but the taste as is...is a bit strange. Everything else I've tried my husband and I have loved. Especially the roated red pepper pasta. I used goat cheese instead of feta (what I had on hand in a snow storm) and wow! It was delicious. It made enough sauce to freeze some and reheat at a later point. I can't wait to make more of Ellie's recipes. I love her!

I love this cookbook. It is filled with so many yummy and healthy recipes that even my husband who is suspicious of "diet" recipes loves the dinners from it. It does not taste like "diet" food. I definitely recommend this to anyone.

I found the book extremely helpful and informative. I have recommended it to my friends and family. It contains great tasting recipes that will not derail you from a healthy eating life style. The most important factor is that all the recipes use healthy products - no artificial ingredients go into any of their foods!

This cookbook has very easy to follow lowfat recipes from some of the contestants on previous shows. It's not a very extensive book but a good one to have around for cooking and eating healthy!

This book is exactly what I was looking for since finding that my son has diabetes. It will take all of the work out of counting carbs, etc. I think it would be a good book for everyone to help lead a healthy lifestyle.

This is such a great go to cookbook. Lots of great weight loss tips too! I have other cookbooks from Marlene Koch and this is my favorite. We're all trying to eat healthy meals and lower the sugar and salt , this is perfect blend of both- without sacrificing taste!

I will give this as a gift on every possible occasion. This is the 'end-all' book on healthy eating. Lose the many pounds on the bookshelf and put this one book in their place. Common sense eating with the proper preparation techniques explained, accompanied by ancient wisdom and the facts to back it up. I even give it 5 stars for entertainment value as it is an enjoyable read that will leave you laughing (and crying) at the politics that govern our food choices.

If you or someone you cook for has Hemochromatosis, this cookbook is a must have. Not only does the cookbook have safe, easy to follow recipes that taste great, it has lots of information about iron absorption and information about how to pair foods to eat healthy with low iron intake. I really like the colorful pictures, too. I was thrilled to find this cookbook and even more thrilled when I purchased it and saw the quality.

I LOVE this cookbook and have recommended it to all my friends. The recipes are easy, fast, and healthy...no more having to rework recipes to make them fit a healthy lifestyle. I have tried many of the recipes in the book and have liked almost all, and LOVED several. The ones that are average I wrote notes and can easily add more seasoning to suit my family's taste. The ingredients are, for the most part, things you would normally have in the house or can be purchased at any regular grocery store. I love that the calories and nutrition facts are already calculated as well. I have checked the facts, and they are quite close. I think the differences is often dependent upon what brands of ingredients you use. I am online now to buy more as wedding presents! My son is getting married and I want my future daughter-in-law to have this book because while she likes to cook, they are busy working students and have very little time. The chapters in this book include recipes that serve just two, crockpot, casseroles, grilling and more. She will be able to make healthy meals and stick to a student's budget. It's awesome! I have a large collection of recie books and this is by far my favorite and most used. I plan my entire month's meals around it. I paid more than the listed price here, and it was worth every penny.

Based on the NBC hit show "The Biggest Loser," this colorful cookbook is a plus to anybody's library that is trying to lose weight or even just eat healthy. The promise of the book is that eating healthy can be quick and delicious AND it doesn't have to mean bland, tasteless food- and the book delivers. Readers will find a short review of the Biggest Loser's way to lose weight- which is sensible- you eat right and exercise. Then comes the heart of the book- over 100 recipes for the various meals like breakfast, snacks, etc. And unlike a lot of cookbooks, each recipe shows you exactly how many calories, fat grams, protein grams, carb grams, fiber grams, sodium, and cholesterol it contains- which is nice for a wide variety of other populations such as those with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease. A sensible and practical cookbook, a lot of people will probably get their money's worth. Also recommend "The Sixty-Second Motivator" for people who need motivation to diet and exercise.

These little cookbooks are so good that I purchased one for all my "grown" children as Christmas gifts...to inspire/encourage them to buy/cook/eat healthier in 2008! With demanding jobs, parenting our grandchildren, and multiple extra-curricular activities...there's little time for each of the three families to place much focus on meal planning/prep time...so in creeps more unhealthy & quick "boxed, pre-packaged, synthetic & artificially sweetened/flavored mixes, etc" These little cookbooks are "jewels" when it comes to simplicity and time-saving...and the recipes are nutritions and delicious for all ages! They know I'm a "stickler" for healthy eating.....this book just gives them all the "advantages". I love the fact that substitutions are given...so you don't have to make a special trip to the grocery just to make a particular recipe...plus ingredients are given for 2 people or a crowd...and even suggestions of what to serve to make the recipe part of a complete meal! This is NOT your typlcal cookbook...this one is fun, easy, and produces quick mouth-watering (healthy) results with every recipe......A great value for healthy meal prep presented in horizonal, easel-back format. Although there are no pictures (a disappointment to one recepient!) it's still a "steal" with 375 pages of recipes, grocery buying hints, nutrition tips, meal suggestions, etc! It's the companion book to the delightful novel...WATER WITH LEMON....! If you've interested at all in adding a few more healthy years to your life... with the least amount of time/effort involved...invest in these two books!

A healthy diet and lifestyle includes more than diet and exercise. Adding dietary supplements to your regimen can help promote a healthy body from the inside out, but how do you know which dietary supplements you need and which supplements are safe and effective? Understanding the benefits and uses of vitamins and supplements can help you decide which supplements are for you. The following information can help you find answers to many of the most frequently asked questions about dietary supplements.

Even if you maintain a healthy diet and weight and exercise regularly, you still might not feel as though you are getting the nutrients you need to enjoy and keep up with your lifestyle. Women have specific needs when it comes to vitamins, and those needs can change and increase during adolescence, pregnancy and menopause. Let us help you choose the best vitamins and supplements for your lifestyle. B vitamins. B vitamins are water-soluble, which means they are flushed out daily, so they need to be replenished frequently. B vitamins are abundant in a variety of foods, including meat, potatoes and bananas, but many women, particularly vegetarians, may not find themselves consuming a variety of B vitamin-rich foods. Water-soluble vitamins are also compromised when foods are over-processed or stale. B vitamins affect your immune system, metabolism and cell growth, and they have a big impact on your energy levels. Pregnant women should consume extra B vitamins, particularly vitamin B9, which is also known as folic acid. Find your B vitamins together in a B-complex supplement or in a quality multivitamin. Vitamin C. Vitamin C is also water-soluble, so it is important to get plenty each day. Vitamin C is famous for promoting a healthy immune system. In addition, vitamin C is necessary for absorbing iron into the blood. Because women are more likely to develop iron-deficiency anemia, vitamin C is especially important. Vitamin C supplements are available in a range of formulations, and you can also get plenty from food sources. In addition to oranges, vitamin C is abundant in oysters, broccoli and a wide variety of fruits. Vitamin D. Vitamin D contributes to the overall health of your body's organs, but its main job is to make sure that the calcium you work so hard to consume gets absorbed properly. Women are more likely to develop bone density complications, so calcium and vitamin D are extremely important for women of all ages. You can get your vitamin D easily from the sun, but if your lifestyle doesn't allow for much sun exposure, you may want to consider adding a vitamin D supplement to your routine. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means it is stored in the body's fat and organs. There is some potential for toxicity when fat-soluble vitamins are over-supplemented. A daily intake of 200 to 400 IU per day is recommended for children and adults, and most vitamin D supplements will provide 400 IU per dose. More than 400 IU per day is not recommended.

You may have heard that living a healthy lifestyle includes taking dietary supplements to boost your body's well-being. Before you stock your medicine cabinet with an arsenal of pills and powders, it's important to know exactly what a dietary supplement is and what it is made of. In 1994, Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, defining dietary supplements as products taken by mouth, containing ingredients intended to supplement the diet. What are those ingredients and how do they work? The following list of terms can help you understand what makes up the building blocks of the vitamins and supplements you take.
Getting healthy hair doesn't depend entirely on genes, hair products and styling routines. You can improve the quality of your hair by taking vitamins. With the right hair vitamin routine that includes supplements that are essential to hair nutrition, you can enhance hair growth. You may also experience an improvement in the look and texture of your hair. Thick, shiny locks can be easily within your reach with the perfect hair vitamins for healthy tresses. B vitamins. Most B vitamins are important for hair growth, including B3, B5, B6 and B12. Niacin, also known as B3, is essential for a healthy scalp with good circulation. Some foods rich in vitamin B3 include fish, chicken and turkey. B5, also known as pantothenic acid, may prevent grey hair and is found in egg yolks and whole grains. B6 and B12 are also found in grains and eggs and can prevent hair loss. B-complex vitamins can give you a quick dose of these hair-healthy vitamins, and vitamin-rich sport beverages are also commonly filled with B vitamins. Vitamin A. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that is widely known to improve hair texture and sheen. Vitamin A assists in producing sebum in the scalp, which leads to healthy oils throughout the hair. A vitamins are available in supplement form, and many foods are also rich in A vitamins, including spinach, broccoli, cheese, cabbage, peaches and apricots. Vitamin A also helps improve skin quality and texture, so use vitamin A as an all-over beauty regimen. Vitamin E. Vitamin E is essential to the overall appearance of hair. Vitamin E works wonders for the scalp, leading to more hair growth and oil production, which helps hair appear silky and soft. Vitamin E supplements are widely available, and many foods are also rich in vitamin E, such as soybeans, nuts, beans and dark-green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and collard greens.
