Review

Healthy eating has long been synonymous with a stern “eat it, it’s
good for you” approach, which has made eating a chore rather than an
enjoyment. This cookbook, put out by the Canadian Dietetic Association,
features contributions from people across the country, and proves that
healthy food need not be boring. The book contains a large number of
recipes—including, it should be stated boldly, desserts—for food
that is interesting, delicious, and nutritious. The ingredients are
generally readily available, and the preparation is usually
straightforward. In addition, this cookbook features an introduction
about the principles of healthy eating, as well as nutritional
information (such as caloric, protein, fat, and fibre content) for each
recipe. The recipes also include preparation time and have accompanying
menu suggestions. This is a welcome book in an era when healthy and
informed eating has become a goal for many people.
