5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking: 500 Recipes for Lifelong Wellness
by Camilla V. Saulsbury
Delicious recipes that use ingredients with a proven track record in enhancing health and offering protection from diseases.
With our daily exposure to a constant stream of conflicting information about nutrition and health, it can be a challenge to discern which foods really do form a healthy diet, let alone how to turn them into delicious dishes that can be prepared without too much time, fuss and expense.
5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking offers a solution. Vastly different from a diet book, this simplified, five-step approach to health is holistic and flexible. It begins and ends with easy and enticing recipes.
The five steps are:
• Choose fresh, whole foods
• Eat mostly vegetable- and fruit-based foods
• Opt for healthy fats and proteins
• Select superfoods (nutrient-dense foods)
• Eat more whole grains
The choices we make at the market, in our kitchens, and around the dining table, can affect our health (for better or for worse). No one food can make you healthy on its own — aim instead for a varied and balanced diet.
