A Healthier You Cookbook
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."

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.
