“Year after year,” she writes, “guests who patronized Miss Daisy’s requested low-fat, low-cholesterol, and low-calorie recipes and menus. During those years I continued to develop, collect, and file recipes for a cookbook containing healthier versions of traditional Southern recipes.” Miss Daisy's Healthy Southern Cooking is filled with those recipes, and it provides ways to fine-tune a healthy lifestyle though carefully developed and tested recipes for lighter, healthier foods that really taste good.
More than just a cookbook, Miss Daisy's Healthy Southern Cooking is a guide to a healthy lifestyle. Miss Daisy offers helpful hints on how to shop for groceries, plan menus, dine at restaurants, order fast food, and understand the nutrition labels mandated by the federal government. She discusses health concerns and the effects of diet on health, thus making it a revelation for everyone who wants to eat Southern and eat healthy.
Daisy King, known across the South as “Miss Daisy,” is a well-established author whose cookbooks have a combined sales of more than 1.5 million copies. An author, restaurateur, food consultant, and home economist, she lives in Franklin, Tennessee.
