Comfort food is one of the hottest trends in cooking these days and healthy cooking duo Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., and Jeannette Bessinger will show readers how to make the foods they love more nutritious and delicious than ever. Readers won’t feel deprived with healthier versions of mac ‘n cheese, chicken nuggets, pot roast, French fries, and chocolate cake, among others. The two transform traditional comfort food into healthy meals by swapping in healthier, more nutritious ingredients, such as whole grains, adding fresh produce to normally “all-white” meals, and using healthy fats, such as olive oil and avocados. The whole family can enjoy these tasty recipes and feel good about what they’re eating.
