An added bonus: the Moosewood Collective has made sure that the ingredients used in the recipes throughout the book are easily found in most well-stocked supermarkets.

Along with nutritional and glossary guides that provide explanations of nutritional terms, instructions for how to glean the information you need from nutrition labels, a brief overview of vitamins and minerals, and guides to ingredients and cooking techniques, the Collective also offers tips and ideas for sustaining a low-fat lifestyle. They bake rather than fry, replace high-fat ingredients with healthy substitutes (no artificial ingredients allowed ), and use butter and oil very moderately, so that what is lost in fat is gained in bold, intense flavors.

The essential dietary guide and cookbook for people with irritable bowel syndrome and other gastrointestinal disorders--with hundreds of low-fat recipes to ease the effects of IBS, lactose intolerance, Crohn's Disease, ulcerative colitis, and other digestive conditions

Irritable bowel syndrome is one of our nation's most untalked-about ailments, but millions of people - mostly women - suffer from the debilitating condition, one that must be controlled primarily through diet. Contrary to what many sufferers believe, eating for IBS does not mean deprivation, never going to restaurants, boring food, or an unhealthily limited diet. It does mean cutting out such trigger foods as red meat, dairy, most fats, caffeine, alcohol, and insoluble fiber. Heather Van Vorous, who has suffered from IBS since age 9 and gradually learned how to control her IBS symptoms through dietary modifications, collects here 175 recipes she has created over 20 years. Those suffering from IBS, lactose intolerance, Crohn's Disease, ulcerative colitis, and other digestive disorders will be thrilled to discover that they can enjoy traditional homestyle cooking, international foods, rich desserts, snacks, and party foods - and don't have to cook weird or special meals for themselves while their families follow a "normal" diet. Eating for IBS will forever revolutionize the way people with IBS eat--and live.
The Healthy Kitchen: Recipes for a Better Body, Life, and Spirit
The Healthy Kitchen
Recipes for a Better Body, Life, and Spirit
Paperback      ISBN: 0375710310

Two of America's most popular authorities on healthy eating and cooking join forces in this inspiring, easy-to-use cookbook. This is not a diet book. It is a lively guide to healthy cooking, day-by-day, packed with essential information and, above all, filled with enticing food.

Andrew Weil, M.D.--author of the best-selling Eating Well for Optimum Health--brings to this perfect collaboration a comprehensive philosophy of nutrition grounded in science. Rosie Daley--acclaimed for her best-seller, In the Kitchen with Rosie--brings to it her innovative and highly flavorful spa cuisine.

The recipes are eclectic, drawing from the healthy and delicious cooking of the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Asia, among other cuisines. For starters, you might try Grilled Satay or a Miso P t ; for soup, often a meal in itself, a hearty Mixed-Bean Minestrone Stew or a Roasted Winter Squash and Apple Soup with Cilantro Walnut Pesto; a special entr e could be the Savory Roasted Cornish Hens with Roasted Garlic or Baked Spicy Tofu with Bean Thread Noodles, Corn, and Mango; for a simple supper, Turkey Burgers or Portobello Burgers; and for the occasional indulgence, a dessert of Almond Fruit Tart or Peach and Blueberry Cobbler.

Andy and Rosie do not always agree. When Rosie calls for chicken, Andy offers a tofu alternative; she likes the flavor of coconut milk, whereas he prefers ground nut milk; when she makes a pastry with butter, he suggests using Spectrum Spread. There are no hard-and-fast rules.

Lifelong health begins in the kitchen, so this is a lifestyle book as well as a cookbook. In it you will learn from Dr. Weil:

- how to make use of nutritional information in everyday cooking
- what is organic . . . and how to buy organic foods
- the importance of reading labels and what to look for
- sensible advice about eggs, milk, cheese, salt, spicy foods, wine, coffee
- the facts about sugar and artificial sweeteners

. . . and from Rosie:

- how to get kids involved--from skinning almonds to layering lasagna
- ways to have fun in the kitchen--creating scallion firecrackers and radish rosettes
- low-fat and nondairy alternatives for those with special concerns
- smart menu planning--letting the seasons be your guide

. . . and lots more.

This revolutionary book will change forever the way you cook for yourself and your family.
