For author Ellie Krieger -- and also host of the Food Network's Healthy Appetite -- good health isn't about deprivation, it's about good choices.

From appetizers to desserts, Ellie has a recipe to satisfy your every craving, whether it's for creamy mashed potatoes or luscious chocolate pudding. She offers up tasty ideas for healthy grab-and-go breakfasts and mid-afternoon snacks. You'll find useful tips on ingredients, going organic, and easy ways to change your eating habits. Plus each recipe comes with a complete nutritional analysis.

But this book is much more than a collection of recipes. It's a new way of looking at food -- a fresh approach to eating that gives you the flavor and satisfaction you crave in a healthier way.

Here's a little taste of the philosophy behind every delicious recipe in The Food You Crave.

    • Moderation -- Not only in portion size, but you'll find healthy suggestions about which ingredients should be used "Usually," "Sometimes," and "Rarely"
    • Keeping it Fresh -- Most of the recommended foods and ingredients are fresh -- as close to their original state as possible -- which makes them tastier and healthier

Keeping it Real

  • -- Recipes steer clear of foods with artificial additives or a list of ingredients that read like a chemistry experiment -- to protect your health

In The Food You Crave, you'll find dozens of healthy recipes that are bursting with flavor -- for everyday meals that will make you feel great.
