Melissa d'Arabian's new cookbook is out!  Supermarket Healthy is described as "recipes and know-how for eating well without spending a lot."  You may recognize her as the host of Food Network's Ten Dollar Dinners and the Cooking Channel's Drop 5 Lbs with Good Housekeeping.  Read below to find out about this great new cookbook you'll want to add to your library!

Back of the Book Description:
Food Network star and New York bestselling author Melissa d'Arabian proves that healthy eating at home is easy, achievable, and affordable.
Everyone want to fell good about what they are eating, serving guests, and feeding their families, but most of us don't do our weekly shopping at pricey specialty stores--we do it at the local supermarket and we don't want to break the bank.  In her second book, Melissa demystifies the task of preparing nutritious and delicious food by showing exactly how you can make your grocery store work for you.  She offers helpful strategies for shopping, cooking, and entertaining, as well as meal blueprints and nutritional information throughout.  This book will make you confident about the food you're buying, preparing, and eating.  Delicious recipes like Almond Waffles with Raspberry-Basil Sauce, Kale and White Bean Caesar Salad in a Jar, Slow-Roasted Tomato Spaghettini, Flatiron Steaks with Quick Cookies have something for every type of eater at every meal of the day.  No matter your favorite flavors or dietary needs, cooking on a budget is empowering--and now you can learn how to make every bite count.  If cooking at home is the key to healthy living, Supermarket Healthy is the only tool you'll need.

My Review: 
This book looks fantastic!  The recipes look tasty and the pictures are beautiful.  I love cookbooks with pictures!  This cookbook has 11 chapters covering Breakfast; Snacks; Soups and Stews; Salads, Wraps, and Sandwiches; Veggie Mains; Pasta; Fish and Seafood; Chicken and Turkey; Beef, Pork, and Lamb; Sides; Dessert.  Melissa has also included 3 other sections called: Making Supermarket Healthy Work for You, Hot-Button Issues, and The Supermarket Healthy Pantry Must-Haves.  My favorite part of this cookbook is the blueprint sections scattered throughout the book.  Melissa breaks down a meal and gives you multiple options to guide you through cooking something your family would like.  For example, on page 144-145 she guides you through making meatballs.  Step 1: choose your base--chicken, pork, turkey, beef or lamb.  Next she gives you the recipe to add to the meat to make the meatball.  Step 2: You can choose your meatball style--Traditional or Exotic.  Step 3: The directions for rolling and cooking your meatballs.  I love that I can make it my own with all of her suggestions!
So take a look at this new book and you may just find another go to cookbook to aid your preparing food for you family!
