Right up front, Marlene Koch lays out the purpose of this book (Page 9): "My fabulous news is that eating for pleasure and eating for good health can be one and the same. I am thrilled to tell you that with this book you never again have to be deprived or sacrifice the foods you love for the sake of your health--yes, you really can have it all."At the outset, Koch looks at some of the key nutritional concepts--calories, fat, salt, carbohydrates, and proteins. In each instance, she lays out the nuances (e.g., good versus not-so-good fats). She writes of diet and diabetes and then enters the realm of "meal planning," including food exchanges, carbohydrate counting, and nutritional analysis. Then, a brief discussion of essential ingredients, ones that (Page 24) ". . .are simply low in sugar, fats, and calories" and assist, easily, developing tasty meals. Among these? Splenda, cottage cheese, cooking/baking sprays, oats, flavorings, and so on.For any cookbook, though, it's the recipes that are at the heart of matters. This book is divided into numerous categories, starting with hot and cold beverages and ending with creamy desserts. In between? Smoothies and shakes, breakfast entrees, appetizers, salads, pasta, poultry, seafood, and the like.Just a few examples to illustrate. I use a chicken piccata recipe that works very well. This book features such a recipe as well. Many similarities with what I make, but some interesting differences. Ingredients: boneless chicken breasts, flour, olive oil, white wine, lemon juice, chicken broth (reduced sodium), capers (optional--but I can't stand the thought of optional capers! They add such a nice taste), butter/margarine, and parsley. The steps to make the final dish are straightforward.
