Brilliant, Absolutely Brilliant!

This is the second book of this series that I?ve purchased. Unbelievably, it?s better than the other one I reviewed! Why? It offers cooking alternatives to the high fat, high calorie, high sodium, low nutrient offerings of many restaurants. So far, I?ve found the recipes to be easy ? plus the authors explain what makes the recipe a better choice. Also, innovation was not left at the cover; some of these recipes are better looking and better tasting (as well as better-for-you) concoctions. Here?s just one example: ?The Marinade Matrix:? ?Soak for your health: the polyphenols in marinade, drawn from a pool of herbs and spices, cut carcinogen deposits found in grilled foods by up to 88 percent, ?.? They also say that spice rubs and marinades add flavor without the heavy sauces (extra calories). The recipes also show how you are saving money. The authors mention Cheesecake Factory Wasabi Crusted Ahi Tuna (price: $21.95). The home-cooked recipe for this dish saves 1450 calories (you read right!) and costs $3.32 per serving. Throughout the book there are ?Matrix? pages; they break down prepared dishes (smoothies, skewered meats, snacks, etc.), and teach the reader how to make low fat, low calorie, nutrient-rich choices so you can create your own dishes. This little book was such a blockbuster that several more of these books have emerged, including a book specifically for kids, best and worst foods, supermarket survival and others.
