Summer is almost at an end and the High Holidays are quickly approaching. As usual, the big question on everyone’s mind is what to serve. I love the holidays but the usual fare is packed with calories and fat. Not this year. I’ll be preparing recipes from my new cookbook NORENE’S HEALTHY KITCHEN (Whitecap Books $34.95 Cdn, $29.95 U.S.) to serve at my holiday table.
Here are some delicious dishes that are heart-healthy, can be prepared in advance and are adaptable to serve both large or small families. You’ve been waiting a long time for my new book to arrive, and I apologize for the delay. I hope your family enjoys these dishes and they will become new traditions to serve at your holiday table.
I’ve also included many of my favourite cooking secrets and there are many helpful nutrition notes and lots of information about the glycemic index. The recipes are great for heart-smart cooking, for anyone watching their weight, and also for those who are on a diabetic diet. With 600 brand-new recipes to choose from, there’s something for everyone! You don’t need to sacrifice flavour for nutrition and there’s no need to convert the recipes to make them adaptable for the Kosher kitchen. It’s all been done for you.
Wishing all my readers a happy and very healthy New Year. From my healthy kitchen to yours, eat YOUR way to good health!
