Healthy 1-2-3: The Ultimate Three-Ingredient Cookbook, Fat-Free, Low Fat, Low Calorie
Synopses & Reviews
In the kitchen, award-winning chef Rozanne Gold proves (again) that three is a magic number. On a mission to provide health-conscious home cooks with a remarkable assortment of bold, delicious dishes, Gold maximizes the flavor in her recipes by removing superflous ingredients and reducing calories and fat. The secret lies in simplicity: Each recipe in Healthy 1-2-3 uses only three ingredients.
Eschewing today's one-dimensional pro-protein, anti-carbohydrate trends, Healthy 1-2-3 demonstrates that proper nutrition is all in the balance. There are no forbidden foods. Everything from red meat to red wine has its place.
The vivid, unadulterated taste of the best ingredients reawakens the senses and reminds us just how satisfying real food can be. Let Gold, the "diva of culinary minimalism," count the ways: Poached Salmon with Cilantro-Yogurt; Polenta Tart with "Melted" Tomatoes; Cumin-Crusted Lamb with Apricots; Steamed Mustard Greens with Roasted Garlic Butter; Warm Rhubarb Compote; and Chocolate Mousse Cake.
Because all of the dishes are low in fat and/or calories, Healthy 1-2-3 can help promote weight loss or maintenance. If weight isn't an issue, then simply take advantage of all the latest research on the inherent and healthful benefits of fresh, natural ingredients. With enticing, daringly easy recipes, Healthy 1-2-3 offers a sustainable, way-of-life diet. It's a deliciously new way to eat everything.
