About the Cookbook
    The Fast and Healthy Cookbook is a great cookbook that will inspire you to forego the take out and fast food in favor of healthy meals at home. It offers a wide range of recipes that can be taken to the table in minutes. From a spicy Creole Chicken Gumbo Soup to a deceptively rich-tasting Pecan-Crusted Catfish, this cookbook has what it takes to allow you to enjoy a healthy diet without the feeling of "dieting".

    Presented as a lovely bound hardcover book, the Fast and Healthy Cookbook offers a simple format that gives you the information you need to be healthy without losing flavor. After a beginning chapter devoted to the principles of healthy eating and cooking, the book presents the recipes. They are divided into ten chapters, ranging from appetizers to desserts.

    The first page of each chapter includes the title of that chapter and a beautiful full-color photograph of one of the recipes in the chapter. The recipes are then presented, complete with nutritional information, many of them with full color photographs. There are also periodically helpful tips and ingredient information given that make this a cookbook that's informative as well. To give you an idea about the recipes presented in the book, here's a selection of recipes from the cookbook:

    • Appetizers(Creamy Shrimp Dip & Fiesta Quesadillas)
    • Salads (Hot Barley and Chicken Salad & Cobb Salad Shells)
    • Soups, Stews and Chilies (Curried Sweet Potato Soup & Beef Stew)
    • Poultry (Creamy Basil Chicken-Pasta & Teriyaki Chicken Burgers)
    • Beef, Pork and Lamb (Beef Stroganoff & Milanese Beef Grill)
    • Fish and Seafood (Lemony Salmon Fettuccine & Cantonese Fish)
    • Meatless Entrees (Ravioli with Zucchini & Spinach Rice Pie)
    • Side Dishes (Wild Rice with Apples & Swiss Chard Italiano)
    • Breads (Spiced Apple Bread & Carrot Zucchini Muffins)
    • Desserts (Cherry and Peach Cream Cakes & Ginger Orange Bars)

    These are just a few of the 350 recipes that await the readers of the Fast and Healthy Cookbook. It's a great addition to your kitchen collection -- one that will tickle your taste buds and whittle your waistline!
