Good Housekeeping: The Supermarket Diet Cookbook

by Janis Jibrin Susan Westmoreland

Let Good Housekeeping hold your hand, guiding you as you prepare tasty diet-friendly meals! Remember: people who eat at home tend to be thinner than those who eat out often. Even those who don't feel comfortable in the kitchen can easily make these recipes, which have all been triple-tested in the magazine's acclaimed kitchens. Most of the recipes take no more than 20 minutes from stove to table--less time than picking up calorie-laden take-out. And they're also nutritious, so they not only help you drop pounds, but also could lower the risks for heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other ailments. But of course, vitamins and minerals don't lure dieters to the table: taste does, and these dishes are absolutely delicious. Meals such as Asparagus, Red Potato, and Romano Frittata; Salmon with Tomato-Oliver Relish; Steak and Pepper Tortillas, and Tortellini with Zucchini and Radicchio are as palate-pleasing as they are weight-reducing. And leave room for desserts like Apricot Soufflé and Seattle Cappuccino Angel Food Cake. Both veterans of the plan and newcomers will find this cookbook--which summarizes all the Supermarket Diet basics--invaluable!

The Pescetarian Plan

by Janis Jibrin Sidra Forman

With more than 100 mouthwatering recipes, switching to a vegetable- and seafood-based diet has never been easier, healthier--or more delicious! You can go vegetarian to slim down, help reduce your risk for cancer and cardiovascular disease, feel great, and probably live longer. Or you can eat fish to help protect your heart, quell appetite, stay sharp, be happier, and even have better skin. (You read that right!) Better yet, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with The Pescetarian Plan--a delicious, easy-to-follow, one-of-a-kind program for weight loss and optimal physical and mental well-being. Inspired by the traditional Mediterranean way of eating ("pesce" is the Italian word for "fish," and "pesca" is Spanish for "fishing," thus the alternate spelling "pescatarian"), veteran nutritionist Janis Jibrin, M.S., R.D., offers step-by-step portion- and meal-planning instructions, including a wide variety of quick and easy breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes to help you meet your weight-loss and health goals. She shares her deep knowledge of the science behind the healthiest diet on the planet, deftly explaining the amazing potential benefits of eating the pescetarian way--including whittling your waist, reducing chronic inflammation, preventing arterial plaque, and possibly warding off Alzheimer's. She also breaks down the latest information about mercury, overfishing, and the environmental impact of your ingredient choices. With Chef Sidra Forman's expert guidance, you'll become confident in the kitchen--fish and other types of seafood are much easier to prepare (and much harder to mess up!) than you may think. And the mouthwatering recipes and photos--including Broiled Trout with Preserved Lemon and Thyme, Grilled Shrimp with Peach BBQ Sauce, Roasted Chick Pea Snacks, Blueberries Baked with Sweet Cream, and Chocolate Cupcakes with Mint Icing--give you options the whole family will love. Quite Possibly the Healthiest Eating Style on the Planet! On the Pescetarian Diet you will: * See inches around the waist disappear * Feel more active and productive * Fill your plate with the best, most nutritious food * Stop counting calories--it's all in the portions * Go at your own pace: start slowly or dive right in * Really enjoy your food and its many benefitsPraise for The Pescetarian Plan "Informative and inspiring . . .
