The definitive cookbook to support a woman' s best health through all stages of life

Women today are interested in eating well and maintaining a healthy lifestyle throughout their lives. Now Betty Crocker Cookbook for Women gives them the practical advice on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle they need to help achieve well-being and stay healthy from their energetic twenties to a fruitful and active retirement. With a supportive, positive approach that inspires and entertains rather than overwhelms, the book combines credible medical, nutrition, and wellness information from cardiologist Dr. Rita Redberg with recipes from the Betty Crocker Kitchens that are both healthful and delicious.

The book addresses the most common health issues encountered by women- including weight loss and maintenance, stress, exercise, hormonal changes, mental acuity, and bone, skin and hair health. Girlfriend-to-girlfriend quotes share real-life experiences with food, weight loss, exercise, and coping with everyday issues. The recipes, which use whole grains and other health-enhancing ingredients, are reduced in fat, calories, cholesterol and sodium and are higher in fiber, calcium, iron and essential vitamins. Key nutrients like folic acid and Omega-3 are color-coded for easy reference. Best of all, the recipes are family-friendly, so there is no need to cook two household meals. Notes from Dr. R. and special features throughout the book include important tips and medical information on everything from heart health and staying motivated to lose weight to cutting portion sizes and ideas for ingredient substitutions. Packed with down-to-earth advice, expert guidance, color photosand more, Betty Crocker Cookbook for Women will give women the information and inspiration to eat right and live well at every age and stage of their lives.

Dr. Rita Redberg (San Fransisco, CA) is a cardiologist at the University of California at San Francisco.
