The Everyday Gourmet: Making Healthy Food Taste Great.
When you hear the words “healthy food,” it’s all too easy to think of bland, uninspired, or unfamiliar food that takes all the pleasure out of cooking and eating. What often prevents us from practicing healthy eating habits: the wealth of misinformation out there about what foods are healthy and the idea that we have to sacrifice the flavor that makes food culinasuch an enjoyable part of life.
But there’s an easy way to conquer both of those obstacles. All it takes is a little nutrition science and a few culinary
tricks—both of which you’ll get in The Everyday Gourmet: Making Healthy Food Taste Great.
It turns out that healthy food is easy to understand and, when prepared well, is a treat to your palate. Healthy food doesn’t have to compromise on taste; rather, imaginative preparation can enhance the natural flavors of food while providing you with enormous health benefits. What you eat, and how you prepare it, has a profound impact not only on the way you look but on the way you feel. And in recent years, multiple scientific studies have confirmed the benefits of a healthy diet for reducing the risk factors for obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even certain cancers.
