Fresh Choices uses USDA and EPE statistics to identify the conventionally grown fruits and vegetables that have the least and greatest pesticide residues; explains how to buy the purest and safest meats, chicken, and seafood; and provides knowledgeable guidelines for choosing dairy products, flour and pasts, and rice, grains, and beans. More than 100 recipes offer proof that you don't have to sacrifice variety or flavor--or abandon a health-conscious eating plan--to enjoy great meals every day.
Among the many fresh choices here are such palate-pleasers as Grilled Salmon with Pineapple Salsa, Thai Chicken Over Penne, Blueberry Stuffed French Toast, and Mocha Pudding Cake, along with contributions from well-known chefs such as Alice Waters and Rick Bayless. Each recipe features a complete nutritional analysis, and throughout the book there are hints on everything from boosting the flavor and nutritional impact of a dish to simplifying preparation and cooking. Millions of Americans want to do the right thing for themselves and the environment and don't know where to start. Fresh Choices will point them down the right path.
