Description: Rock star. Activist. Mother. With Sheryl Crow's busy schedule, the Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter-producer never has had much time to cook. Always eating on the run, she often grabbed meals from the green-room catering tables or in small-town restaurants wherever she happened to be playing that night. That all changed when she was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago. Taking her illness as a wake-up call, Sheryl was determined to find a way to eat more healthily both on the road and at home. In walks Nashville chef Chuck White. When Sheryl tasted Chuck's cooking, she was instantly hooked, particularly by his ability to replace unhealthy ingredients with surprising and healthy alternatives. Since then, Chuck has taught Sheryl all about nutritious foods to keep her on top of her game and always ready to perform. This wholesome approach to every dish has been successfully integrated into all aspects of Sheryl's busy life -- from living in hotels and on tour buses to being on her farm near Nashville with her two sons, Wyatt and Levi. Now Sheryl and Chuck want to bring their healthy, delicious creations from their kitchen into yours.
If It Makes You Healthy offers a delicious menu of more than 100 recipes for appetizers and snacks, soups, salads, main dishes, and desserts, all grouped seasonally, which reflects Sheryl's busy schedule: spring and summer, when she is usually on the road performing, and fall and winter, which may find her back home in her studio. From the entertaining meals prepared for her crew while touring (like the Mojo Criollo Braised Pork) to small home-cooked meals for Sheryl and her two children (Basil and Apple-Marinated Organic Chicken is Wyatt's favorite), this book is filled with so-flavorful-you-forget-they-are-nutritious recipes anyone can make.
Throughout, there are beautiful photographs of Sheryl's family and friends at her farm, advice by nutritionist Rachel Beller, and Sheryl's musings on her career, her health, and motherhood. If It Makes You Healthy is about more than just good, nourishing food -- it's about wholesome, healthy living.
