Product Description

“This book tantalizes my taste buds and is everything I love—real comfort food that is as nutritious as it is delicious!” —Holly Clegg, author of the trim&TERRIFIC® cookbook series

Feel good about satisfying your craving for comfort food! You can now savor the taste—and healthiness—of warm, delicious, and comforting classics including mac ’n cheese, lasagna, chicken nuggets, pancakes, potato skins, and shepherd’s pie, thanks to acclaimed nutritionist Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., and whole foods chef Jeannette Bessinger, C.H.H.C.

The two transform 150 comfort food favorites into good-for-you dishes without sacrificing an ounce of taste by:

- cutting back on sugar to lower blood sugar impact

- increasing fiber and protein

- boosting nutrients with added fruits and vegetables

- focusing on higher-quality fats such as olive oil

- reducing calories by reducing overall fat

The result? Delicious new classics such as: Fresh Phyllo Chicken Pot Pie; Higher-Protein, Lower-Cal Creamy Fettuccini Alfredo; Whole-Grain Home-Grilled Pizza; Satisfying Real-Food Pumpkin Pancakes; Lower-Cal Loaded Potato Skins; and Grass-Fed Italian Feta Meatballs in Tomato Sauce. Your taste buds—and your health—will thank you!

4.0 out of 5 stars comfort foods without the pounds 16 Nov 2011
By K. Platt TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Satisfy your cravings in a healthy way. Includes mains, side dishes, desserts, snacks and breakfasts to indulge without affecting your health adversely. Sound common sense from the man who wants to keep us all healthy. The recipes will help you cut back on sugar, increase fibre in the diet, boost nutrient intake, help with choosing the right fats and generally reduce calorie intake. We all know we need to do it, but often it looks so unappetising. Jonny has worked with nutritionist Jeanette Bessinger to produce delicious meals. One downside - recipes with photos please, there are too few photos here. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

I am a huge fan of these cookbooks. I own several versions and have yet to try anything that hasn't been good. Johnny makes it very easy to make good food and common recipes healthier without making them taste bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Cook Book 10 Nov 2012
By gmk1016 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased 150 Healthiest Comfort Foods without being familiar with the author. This cookbook quickly became my favorite- the recipes are relatively easy and healthy. For each recipe the author briefly explains how the recipe was made healthy and adds interesting side notes. I also like that the author includes substitutions for some of the ingredients you may not have on hand. I have made several of the recipes and my family has loved them all. My picky kids even request the chicken tenders and meatloaf on a regular basis. Very, very pleased.
5.0 out of 5 stars Healthier eating with good taste 17 Jan 2014

Tasty recipes, sound health information, good photographs. I am a diabetic. Not all of the recipes work for me, but most do and the complete nutrition data (every cookbook should provide this!) is very helpful.
5.0 out of 5 stars Comfort Food & Healthy Too! 30 Jan 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a growing collection of Jonny Bowden books and this one is my current fave. The recipes are simple to make and so flavorful. I made the meatloaf recipe using ground turkey instead of beef and it was so moist and delicious. The mashed potatoes, something I thought I could no longer indulge in, are fantastic, and I never missed the heaps of butter and whole milk. Can't wait to try the mac & cheese and some of the desserts. Reccommended for healthier eating without missing out on old favorites.
