Cooking Healthy - Reviews and Opinions

Journal of the American Dietetic Association (October 1993)

“This is not your grandmother’s cookbook,” says author Phyllis A. Milkon of her book, Cooking Healthy with BCV’s Shortcuts. The 250 page cookbook, published by Burgess Creative Ventures, offers 171 recipes designed specifically for busy cooks who want time-saving shortcuts. Recipes,which provide reduced amounts of fat, cholesterol, and sodium  and use no refined sugar, are organized into 10 tabbed sections: beverages, soups / mini meals, salads / dressings, vegetables, poultry, fish, other main dishes, sauces, desserts, and BCV’s shortcuts. Step-by-step instructions and nutrient information are provided for each recipe. A chapter entitled Nutrition Awareness offers basic information on nutrition guidelines.
