A Healthier You Cookbook

Updated on October 18, 2017

Dietitians of Canada Cook Great Food Cookbook

On the front cover of this cookbook it says there are 450 delicious recipes. I haven't quite made my way through the entire cookbook but the recipes that I have tried are indeed delicious.

When I first saw this book I thought hmm written by dietitians, the recipes must be pretty boring. My reason for thinking this is hospital food and menus are set up by dietitians and most hospital food is awful! The cover picture is what caught my eye initially, and I had to flip through the book to see what else was in there..

Packed Full of Healthy Information

Each and every recipe includes a nutritional analysis. This is very helpful for anyone on diet that is counting calories, looking to decrease carbohydrates, or for someone looking for ways to get more fiber in their diet.

You will find dietitian's messages on each recipe page such as:

"Basil contributes to healthy eating because it is a flavor enhancer which reduces the need for fat and salt."

Tips come with every recipes such as; what to use if to don't have fresh basil, how to ripen tomatoes, what spices to add if you want a recipe spicier, what recipes freeze well, and so on. There are 450 very useful tips in total.

You will find a food guide to healthy eating as well as an activity guide.

Types of Recipes

There are so many recipes that include appetizers and dips, soups, salads, pasta, rice and legumes, main meals vegetables and desserts.

Don't let Canada being in the title deter you from purchasing this cookbook as it is available to buy on all Amazon sites. If you're interested in purchasing this cookbook simply go to the top of the page and click on the Buy Now button.

Organizing My Cookbook

I like to be organized and I have many uses for Post-It Flags. The ones I have on my cookbooks have been there for years, which really impresses me about this product in the fact that they have not come unstuck over the years.

      @susanholland10: I really like this cookbook. I bought it when Al was having problems trying to get his cholesterol and blood sugar levels down.

      This looks like a great cookbook. My daughter wants to get a degree in Nutrition, but she hates the idea of being known as a dietitian just for the reasons you mentioned about about the dull hospital meals. There is so much more to it than creating hospital menus. This cookbook looks like it shows us what it really means. As my husband and I grow older (did I really say that?), we are noticing the different foods we can and can't eat now... This book would give am explanation. Thanks for sharing!! :-)
