Healthy Slow Cooker Meals, 2nd Edition

The Healthy Slow Cooker, 2nd Edition by Judith Finlayson

About The Book:
The first edition was incredibly successful having sold close to 95,000 copies! Definitions of healthy eating have changed quite dramatically since The Healthy Slow Cooker was first published in 2006. In those days, it was one size fits all - low fat, low calorie, and no saturated fat. Since then, there’s been a shift in thinking. Many leading experts now feel that many of our modern diseases are directly associated with the consumption of wheat and advocate reducing carbohydrates. Another significant development is that the evidence against saturated fat has been gradually diminishing. All the recipes are delicious, nutrient-dense, and have a balanced approach that will suit a wide variety of people. Incredibly healthy meals prepared in a slow cooker is an unbeatable combination!

My Thoughts:
I love using the slow cooker to make dinners. It is just so fast and easy. And this cookbook is great, for some new healthy recipes that I have not tried before. I especially liked the Butternut Chilli! And so did Callan! Big surprise there! We are on our way to healthier eating, the easy way!

About The Author:
After a long career as an author and journalist, Judith Finlayson decided to transform her passionate love of cooking and interest in the culture of food into a second career. Her slow cooker books, including The Healthy Slow Cooker, 175 Essential Slow Cooker Classics, Slow Cooker Comfort Food, and The Vegetarian Slow Cooker, have sold more than 750,000 copies. Using her recipes, thousands of people have discovered not only how delicious and convenient food prepared in the slow cooker can be, but also how this handy appliance can be used to create an extraordinary range of dishes not typically associated with a slow cooker. Judith, who is also the author of 125 Best Rotisserie Oven Recipes, The Convenience Cook, and The Complete Whole Grains Cookbook, has a long history of community involvement and has served on numerous committees and boards, focusing on the arts and social issues. In 1994, she received the YWCA Women of Distinction Award for her work in communications. Judith, her husband, and daughter live in Toronto, Ontario.
