Companies spend millions of dollars developing products to put on the grocery shelves that are healthy and available to everyone. The products are often very generic because they have to appeal to a wide range of customer tastes. So why not take advantage of all their expertise and use their product as ingredients and just enhance or spruce them up with more flavor and unique tastes. I have developed recipes that use the common spices found in a kitchen as well as products purchased in the grocery store. Using the right combinations you are able to develop delicious and nutritious meals for your family without spending a lot of time in the kitchen and without breaking your pocket book to purchase the ingredients.
I am conscious of health issues and examine what ingredients are added to store bought products. I have some general rules that I tried to adhere to whenever I purchase a product. I always look for products that have less than 18% sodium content, preferable no Trans fats, and low carbohydrates.
This book takes common products found in the grocery store that are low in salt and carbohydrates and enhance them to add new and interesting flavors, yet keep them healthy. These recipes will reduce the amount of time spent in the kitchen so you can spend more time with your family or friends.
I have included a list of all of the cooking tools and seasonings that are used throughout this cookbook. Stock your kitchen using this list and you will never find yourself lacking the necessary tools or ingredients to make a healthy meal to share with others or enjoy yourself. Watch for specials tips and recipes.
