I was recently introduced to The Food You Crave, a cookbook by Ellie Krieger. Maybe you are familiar with her--Ellie has a show on the Food Network, and a website called Healthy Living with Ellie.
Now, I am not a cooking afficianado. Most of Martha Stewart's recipes are too fancy for me. But every now and then I'll stumble upon a book that I like, and I like Krieger's. First, her recipes seem simple enough. Second, they are tasty. And third, she is a dietician, so she talks a lot about healthy eating, and her recipes are well balanced.
Since this is a blog about being domesticated, I thought I would pass along her name in case you might be looking for some new ideas. I'm personally in a bit of a cooking rut (it happens to me quite frequently...), and could definitely use the inspiration.
In addition to her cookbook, she does offer a membership program for a minimal monthly fee. To be a member, you get pre-planned menus (which can be a godsend if you don't like to plan yourself), calorie counting tools, recipes, shopping lists, motivational encouragement, and the like. I don't think I'll join, but it's worth checking into if you like a little more accountability in your quest for health.
