What's For Dinner?
"What's for dinner?" is a universal question asked daily by kids, spouses, and even by busy singles. With exhausting schedules and varying likes and dislikes, it is often easier to order a pizza or let everyone fend for themselves from heat-and-eat choices in the freezer or cupboard. But taste and nutritional value are usually given up in exchange.

Now busy people who say they don't have time to cook healthy meals have help. Two award-winning cookbooks by registered dietitian Brenda J.Ponichtera - Quick & Healthy Recipes and Ideas and Quick & Healthy Volume II offer hundreds of great-tasting good-for-you
recipes to choose from. Italian Baked Ziti, Eggplant Parmesan, Apple Crisp Parfait, Puffy Chile Relleno Casserole with Spanish Yogurt Sauce, Citrus Salad, and Chicken Breasts Supreme are just a few of the dishes that can be prepared in 15 minutes or less.

Ponichtera's approach is simple: Shop carefully, plan ahead, make meals the whole family will enjoy, and make health-wise ingredient and condiment substitutions wherever possible. The recipes offered in these best-selling books (more than half-a-million copies sold) combine smart ideas, imagination, and ingredients that are easy to find and keep on hand. They provide a wealth of great tasting dishes that are quick and easy to prepare yet keep fat, cholesterol, sodium, and calories in check (nutritional analysis and diabetes exchanges are provided for each recipe).

The recipes in Quick & Healthy Recipes and Ideas and Quick & Healthy Volume II are not limited to dinner ideas. There are great suggestions for interesting sandwiches, pizzas, and stuffed potatoes perfect for lunch or a light supper. Dessert treats include a chocolate cake no one will ever suspect is low-fat, and a non-fat (yes, non-fat) cheesecake. The Apple Cider Pancakes or Blueberry Coffee Cake will be a hit for Sunday breakfast, and there are also recipes for appetizers, no-cook snacks, vegetarian options, and much more.
In addition to the recipes, Ponichtera also includes a wealth of helpful information in each book. She introduces easy-to-follow planning tips that help save time before the cooking starts. Grocery lists are provided, with a master list that can be copied and taken along to the store.

So now, just because you've had a busy day and it looks like your evening calendar is also jam-packed, when the "What's for dinner?" question is asked, you'll have some quick and healthy responses.
