Full nutritional analysis accompanies each recipe makeover, along with tips on how it was made healthier. For instance, EatingWell's chicken-fried steak with gravy has almost half the fat and a third of the calories of the classic version yet still tastes as rich and satisfying as the original; a few healthy modifications to pepperoni pizza will cut calories, sodium, and fat by a third or more.

EatingWell Comfort Foods Made Healthy also solves problems for real families, including a Chinese dinner a diabetic can appreciate and healthier crispy tacos for a family from Texas.

More than just providing recipes, this book teaches you the secrets of healthy, balanced cooking, including
  • Healthier techniques for frying and baking
  • How to get more vegetables into your meals
  • A "pantry-raid" a list of healthy staples you should swap into your pantry
  • A list of essential tools that every healthy kitchen should stock
  • Tips on picking the healthiest fats and oils
