We all know that healthy eating needs to be more than just a fad or a quick-fix diet for two weeks before our summer holiday - it's essential for our continued mental and physical well-being. In this innovative, easy-to-follow cookbook, popular TV cook Lesley Waters shows you how to make healthy eating a positive pleasure. Healthy Food begins with an introduction to the basic principles or 'building blocks' essential to a good diet - balanced nutrition, key cooking methods such as griddling or steam-frying, useful equipment and healthy-eating habits. The subsequent recipe chapters cover all types of food - Soups, Chicken, Pasta and Rice - and provide scrumptious healthy recipes for all occasions from breakfasts and quick suppers, hearty family fare and puddings. Tempting recipes such as Chunky Pear and Vanilla Flapjacks, Smoked Haddock Tortilla and Lamb and Parsnip Ragout show that healthy eating is about a balanced approach to food, rather than depriving yourself of the foods you enjoy.
Lesley Waters is an established food writer and TV personality, appearing regularly on Ready Steady Cook and Can't Cook Won't Cook. She studied French cuisine for three years at Ealing College and gained several awards during her training, including a scholarship to the Hotel Dusseldorf in Germany. In 1978 she joined Prue Leith's restaurant and was soon promoted to Senior Chef. She later became head teacher at Leith's School of Food and Wine. Lesley has written more than a dozen cookbooks, including Ready Steady Cook Book 3, Juice Up Your Energy Levels, Broader than Beans, Cooler than Chillies, and New to Cooking.
