Ham and Apple on Grilled Country Bread

Serves 1

Olive oil spray, for the grill pan

2 slices crusty whole- wheat bread, such as boule or country loaf—200 calories

1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard—0 calories

1/4 teaspoon honey—5 calories

1 1/2 ounces thinly sliced organic Black Forest or other smoked ham—90 calories

1/2 ounce reduced- fat Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced—25 calories

1/4 Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced—20 calories

Freshly ground black pepper to taste—0 calories

Spray a grill pan with olive oil and heat over medium- high heat until hot but not smoking. Place the bread slices on the grill and grill until grill marks appear on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, place the mustard and honey. Stir with a small spoon until well combined. Place the grilled bread on a work surface and spread the mustard and honey mixture on both slices. On one slice of bread, place the ham, gently folding each slice in thirds to give the sandwich some height. Arrange the cheese slices on top and then the apple slices. Grind some black pepper on the apple. Place the other slice of grilled bread on top. Slice the sandwich in half. Serve.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Best known from TV's The Biggest Loser, weight-loss guru Michaels presents a well-meaning collection of 125 recipes designed to meet specific health and fitness goals. Though she has no formal training in nutrition, Michaels asserts that most health problems are caused by metabolic hormonal imbalances; charging forward without any cited sources, Michaels includes a list of 'amazing health benefits' with each recipe (Roast Herbed Turkey Breast with Orange-Cranberry Sauce, for example, is meant to boost metabolism and immunity, improve mood and digestion, fight cancer, and aid the heart). Dogma and posturing aside, these tasty, healthy recipes are likely to please. Michaels does her best to avoid esoteric ingredients, and dishes like Coconut-Curry Steamed Mussels and Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce would be right at home in a traditional cookbook. Others, like Watermelon Soup with Blackberries and Jicama, or Ginger Shrimp Rolls with Green Papaya Slaw, won't make dieters feel like they're settling. Less concerned with calories or fat, Michaels emphasizes the benefits of foods like beans (fiber), cranberries (anti-bacterial, gum disease-fighting properties), and cinnamon (helps normalize blood sugar levels); while some claims seem glib ('If you suffer from asthma, eat lots of apples!'), Michaels's suggestions are, at worst, harmless and delicious." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , Filled with 125 recipes and snacks, as well as cooking advice and tips for people with specific hormonal conditions, "The Master Your Metabolism Cookbook" is an invaluable resource for readers who want to make the most of their Master diet plan.
