THE HEALTHY KITCHEN: Recipes for a Better Body, Life and Spirit

Andrew Weil, Author, Rosie Daley, Author, Rosie Daley, Joint Author . Knopf $24.95 (368p) ISBN 978-0-375-41306-3

What might at first seem a jumble of nutrition facts and recipes turns out to be a stimulating invitation to healthy, pleasurable eating. Well-known for his holistic approaches to physical and mental health, physician Weil (Eating Well for Optimum Health) loves good food. Not one to settle for bland albeit health-promoting fare, Weil insists that not only are low-fuss, delicious meals and good health more easily attainable than most Americans imagine, they actually go hand in hand. Coauthor and former Oprah Winfrey chef Daley (In the Kitchen with Rosie), provides recipes that, for the most part, reflect Weil's conception of the optimum diet. (Where they differ, Weil offers options.) Weil's introduction is a concise version of his dietary philosophy, with more advice scattered throughout the book. All of the 135 recipes include nutrition counts (calories, fat, cholesterol, etc.). According to Weil, eating has become yet another stressful activity that must be fit into jam-packed days. To remedy this, Weil and Daley not only offer satisfying recipes that make use of nourishing, readily available ingredients, they give tips on stocking the pantry, preparation, reading food labels and daily menu planning. Recipes include tempting twists on classics (eggs, grilled fish, pasta), to more adventurous items (broccoli pancakes). While miso, tofu and yogurt may not be appetizing to the meat-and-potatoes crowd, others willing to spread their culinary wings will find in these recipes—and the authors' enthusiasm for good food—a serious incentive to get their daily requirements of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. (Apr.)

Forecast:With both Weil and Daley combining efforts, expect nothing but great sales. The book is a selection of BOMC, QPB, Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club, One Spirit Book Club and The Good Cook.
