Host of the Food Network’s hit show “Healthy Appetite,” now on the Cooking Channel, Ellie’s warmth and charisma have made her the leading go-to nutritionist, with a lifestyle emphasis, in the media today.
Krieger’s success can be attributed to her unique way of offering real life advice without any of the gimmicks and crash diets that permeate the media today. She reaches people with her message that it is possible for anyone, given the tools and knowledge, to live life to the maximum by keeping a healthy balance and nurturing a richly satisfying and sumptuous, attainable lifestyle.
Ellie’s 2005 book 'Small Changes Big Results' was a how-to on easy-to-live-with habit changes that yield optimal results. Ellie’s second book, 'The Food You Crave: Luscious Recipes for a Healthy Life', was an immediate New York Times bestseller, peaking at #2 on that list. In addition to being named to Amazon’s Customer Bestseller List for 2008, 'The Food You Crave' won the 2009 IACP Cookbook award and the esteemed 2009 James Beard Foundation Award for “Best Cookbook with a Healthy Focus.” Her last book, 'So Easy: Luscious Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Week', also became an instant New York Times bestseller.
