Healthy Cooking

Calling something a "healthy" recipe used to be a veiled insult, but these days the term is no longer synonymous with bland tofu and sprouted grains. Today's home cooks have found new ways make heart-healthy meals that cut back on fat, boost fiber and increase vegetables in their diet - and (gasp!) the dishes still taste good. The key to making healthy meals and healthy snacks is to increase flavor while reducing all the bad stuff - in shorthand, that means using lots of herbs, fresh spices and smart cooking techniques to bring out the best in what you're cooking up. No, chicken coated with fresh herbs and panko bread crumbs is never going to taste like it comes out of the Fry Daddy - but that's a good thing, for both taste buds and your waistline.
