Description: Eating right has never been so tasty or satisfying! While we all know that we should be eating for balanced nutrition, exercising more and following the food pyramid guidelines, it sometimes seems hard to do. We're pleased to announce that Betty Crocker has done all the work for you in Betty Crocker's Best of Healthy and Hearty Cooking. It's full of delicious recipes and great information for a healthier lifestyle.

Eating better is not just about watching our calories and fat intake, it is also about following the food pyramid guidelines and making nutritious food choices. Since our nutritional needs change as we go through life, we've provided clear and easy-to-follow information about how to meet your, and your family's, requirements, from infancy through adulthood. Throughout, you'll find helpful tips about choosing foods wisely, which foods pack a nutritional punch, which lower-fat options are best and how to get the most out of what you eat.

Sometimes we resist changing our diets because we think we won't be able to eat what we like. We think that if we want to eat better, we will be left with boring dishes that leave us feeling unsatisfied. Not here! With over 400 flavorful recipes, you'll be sure to find recipes that satisfy time and time again. Discover what you're craving in our chapters on meat, poultry, seafood, meatless and even grilling! You'll never grow tired of the abundance of appetizers, breads, sides and desserts we have to offer. Dig in, because they are all good for you!

Each delicious main-dish recipe is under 400 calories with 12 or fewer grams of fat, so it's easy to prepare great recipes and provide a balanced menu that fits the needs of each member of your family, no matter what age. And there's no problem finding lots of dishes to complement any meal, because each tempting side-dish, dessert, appetizer and bread recipe has 200 or fewer calories and no more than 6 grams of fat.

The way you cook can be as important as what you are cooking, so read up on smart ways to cook using significantly less fat and still get great results. You'll also find some great advice on eating out, eating in, foods to keep on hand and incorporating snacks into a balanced diet. Learn about nutrition labels, knowing what to look for (or look out for) can be your best friend in combating hidden traps and empty calories. If that's not enough, find makeover guidelines to use on all your favorite recipes whose calorie or fat content is too high, so you can start enjoying them again in good health.

A healthy lifestyle is not just about eating the right foods. The foundation for a fit body is formed by your attitude about eating and exercise, too, and you'll find lots of good advice on choosing the right exercise plan for you. Then try out our 14-day menu plan, complete with the calories, fat and fiber already calculated. There's no guesswork, and you can get started right away towards better eating.
