Hooray!  It’s cookbook giveaway day!  As I mentioned yesterday, I jumped at the opportunity to review a The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook.  Probably the best way to test a cookbook is to try out some of the recipes.  So, first I tried the fruit, yogurt and granola parfaits, and then these stovetop chicken fajitas.  I’m a fajita kind of girl.  I almost always order them at Mexican restaurants, and I make them quite frequently at home as well.  When I saw this recipe, I instantly knew it would be one of the first I tried.  I was very interested to see how a health-ified version would measure up to the others.  Of course, as always, I should know, the extensive testing behind all of the ATK recipes means that they will turn out well – even when they are made healthier.  I made these fajitas exactly as the recipe stated (except I used regular tortillas because we already had them on hand).  Honestly, these were just as good as any other fajitas I’ve eaten.  I really appreciated the ease and convenience of making these on the stovetop, especially since it is winter and the grill is out of commission for now.


Now, let’s discuss this cookbook.  As you may know from reading the blog, healthy recipes are not my primary focus.  Sure, I love them when I come across them and I do work to keep our diets well balanced, but I’m definitely one who subscribes to the “everything in moderation” philosophy.  So, even though this is an ATK cookbook, I wasn’t sure whether this book would really be my kind of thing.  Turns out, it is.  It’s an extremely well put together cookbook full of recipes designed with a focus on nutrition.  The book is divided into several categories:
Healthy Start (Breakfast)
Appetizers & Healthy Snacks
Salads
Soups, Stews & Chilis
Vegetables
Rice, Grains & Beans
Pasta
Fish & Shellfish
Poultry
Meat
Vegetarian Entrees
Stir-Fries and Curries
Grilling
Pizza & Tarts
Whole Grain Rolls & Loaves
Quick Breads
Cookies & Bars
Cakes
Fruit Desserts & More
Kid Friendly

I could go on for pages discussing the things I love about this book, but I’ll do my best to keep it brief in bullet form:

  • Nutrition facts for every recipe, obviously an important thing to consider in a cookbook with a focus on health.
  • Lots of lovely color photos.  This differs from the other ATK cookbooks I have, which contain very few pictures, and not many in color.
  • Numerous flavor variations for many of the recipes (for example, you see the variations of the omega-3 granola and the fruit yogurt parfaits).  I mean, four different versions of shrimp cocktail sauce?  Awesome!
  • In particular, the section on veggies has so many recipes and variations, it could make your head spin.  I can never again feel like I don’t know how to prepare an interesting veggie side dish.  There are just so many options!
  • Special features labeled “Makeover Spotlight”, which compare the classic version of a recipe to the health-ified version, highlighting the differences in the ingredients and the nutrition facts. (Example: Green Goddess Dip went from 210 calories and 22 g fat to 50 calories and 3 g fat per serving).
  • Various kitchen tips and important information peppered throughout the book – classic ATK style.
  • A symbol designating “fast” recipes (30 minutes or less).  I didn’t count, but I would estimate that somewhere around half of the recipes fall into this category.
  • Section divider tabs that make it easy to flip to whatever category you are interested in.
  • A ring binder interior, allowing the book to lay flat on the counter – no need for a cookbook holder (or weighing it down with some random kitchen item, like I usually do).

The nerd in me couldn’t resist working out the percentages, so I actually counted up the number of recipes in the book I would be very likely to make myself or would want to try if someone else served them to me.  The calculation worked out to just under 75% of the recipes.  Of the recipes I wasn’t interested in, the reason was nearly always an ingredient that I just don’t care for.  For a cookbook with around 500 recipes, wanting to try 3 out of 4 of them is pretty impressive in my opinion.

So, does this book sound like something you would like to own?  How about a copy autographed by Christopher Kimball, the publisher and editor of Cook’s Illustrated, etc.  To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite healthy dish to make. The Rules: One entry per person, U.S. residents only.  Commenting will close on Sunday, January 23 at 10:00 am, EST.  Entries that do not follow the entry requirements will not be considered.  One winner will be chosen at random and announced next week.  Good luck!


Full disclosure:
I received a free copy of The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook in exchange for hosting this review and giveaway.  Though this review was sponsored, all of the opinions expressed above are mine alone.

  • Yield 4 servings

Ingredients

2 teaspoons canola oil
2 red bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, and sliced thin
1 red onion, halved and sliced thin
Salt and pepper
4 (6‑ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed, pounded if necessary
½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
¾ cup minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons minced canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 tomato, cored, seeded, and chopped medium
3 scallions, sliced thin
8 whole-wheat flour tortillas, warmed
Cilantro, lowfat sour cream, and lime wedges, for serving

Directions

  • 01

    Heat the oil in a 12‑inch skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Add the bell peppers and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and well-browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste, and cover to keep warm.

  • 02

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Combine the orange juice, ½ cup of the cilantro, Worcestershire, garlic, and chipotles in the skillet. Add the chicken and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, about 5 minutes. When the liquid is simmering, flip the chicken over, cover, and continue to cook until the chicken registers 160 to 165 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, 10 to 12 minutes longer.

  • 03

    Transfer the chicken to a plate and shred it into bite-sized pieces when cool enough to handle. Meanwhile, continue to simmer the sauce over medium heat until slightly thickened and reduced to ¼ cup, about 5 minutes.

  • 04

    Off the heat, stir in the mustard, tomato, scallions, remaining ¼ cup cilantro, and shredded chicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve with the pepper-onion mixture and warm tortillas.

  8. Katie says:

    I was just heard about this cookbook on the radio and was going to look at it at the bookstore this weekend!

    I like to make grilled rosemary and thyme chicken with roasted side veggies. Its healthy and delicious, even if it does use a lot of pots/pans.

  9. Annie says:

    Fajitas tend to be my Mexican restaurant choice, too. I’ll definitely have to try these!

    One of my favorite healthy recipes is just sauteed spinach with cannellini beans, a little garlic and lemon juice. It takes almost no time to come together, and is full of lots of green goodness.

  10. Jessica says:

    Oooh those fajitas look delicious! I love cooking healthy and reading your blog. I have made some of your recipes before and they always turn out fabulous. My favorite healthy dish to cook are different thai and indian curries. I think that if you are cooking healthy, you always need to have a good flavor and curries are loaded with flavor. My favorites are bharta (an eggplant, indian curry) and gang pah (a broth based, spicy red curry.)

    I am always looking for new ideas and would love to have the book!

  11. My favorite healthy dish to make is a healthier lasagna with lean meat and low fat cheese plus lots of veggies

  12. Teresa says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make? I would have to say Roasted Tomato Basil Soup…of course, it’s not so healthy when I cave and add a ton of cream at the end when blending :)

  13. Elizabeth says:

    Vegetarian Black-Bean Chili is our favorite healthy dish in my family. Packed with beans and vegetables, it tastes awesome!

  14. Debbie says:

    I would love that cookbook! My healthy dish would have to be my lowfat broccoli soup made with skim milk. It has lots of flavor and I love it!!!

  15. erin says:

    our favorite dish is chicken and red pepper stir fry over romaine instead of rice. yum.

  16. Eliza says:

    I love making roasted vegetables, especially if they’re “fries.” Yum.

  17. Kris says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is a simple tossed salad that I can top with grilled chicken or whatever I have around. Perfect for grab and go lunches.

  18. Amy says:

    Looks like a great book! My favorite healthy dish is your Chicken Gyros, everybody here loves them!

  19. sara says:

    I love making baked chicken parm! It is so easy and tastes just as good as the fried version. We also use low fat cheese when making this dish to make it even healthier. Yum! This cookbook sounds right up my alley, as I always try to put a healthy twist on my favorite foods.

  20. Kristen says:

    I like “everything in moderation” too! One of my favorite healthy dishes would have to be grilled pork tenderloin with a fruit salsa. Yummy!

  21. Hilary says:

    I absolutely love wheatberries and I have a delicious recipe that I adapted for a wheatberry salad. It is wheatberries, sliced strawberries, fresh mint, and a little goat cheese crumbles in while the wheatberries are still warm so it becomes creamy. Then put a little homemade cistrus vinegarette over it and it is amazing!!!! I would love to win because my husband and I are trying all kinds of new healthy recipes!! Thanks:)

  22. Nupur says:

    My favorite healthy dish: bean burritos. I saute lots and lots of colorful vegetables, then add kidney beans or black beans and some seasoning, roll it into a tortilla with just a sprinkling of sharp cheddar (a little goes a long way).

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Megan says:

    clear broth based soups are my favorite

  24. amy o. says:

  26. Reagan says:

    Annie- thanks for all the posting you do I love all of your recipes as does my family. We eat low fat low calories in general but our favorite is green chili enchiladas made the light way of course!! New recipes and ideas on keeping it healthy is always appreciated!

  27. Teacher Amber says:

    Mmm, my favorite healthy recipe is your black bean soup. I don’t even feel like I’m eating healthy because it is so delicious!

  29. Drew says:

    I love making a quick and easy grilled chicken cesar salad. I lightly spray a heart of romain with some olive oil and either through it on the grill or into a grill pan. The char adds some flavor and sweetness. A grilled chicken breast over top with some freshly grated parmasean is all I need – I even skip the dressing.

  30. Susan P says:

    grilled or roasted veggies

  31. Danielle says:

    My recent favorite has been a Mexican-style quinoa with simple grilled chicken on the side.

  33. Bekah G says:

    Grilled Fish Tacos!

  34. I absolutely adore Greek salad – it’s so simple and delicious. Just chop up tomatoes and cucumbers, toss them with oil and vinegar, and sprinkle with feta cheese. Doesn’t get better than that.

  35. CaSaundra says:

    Ooo sounds like a cookbook I definitely need! My favortie healthy dish as of late is to make any sort of stuffed squashes.

  36. Melissa says:

    I love to make roasted cauliflower! It’s simple and tastes amazing!

  39. Gina says:

    My favorite healthy recipe is a recipe for turkey meatballs with whole wheat pasta!

  40. Liz says:

    My fave is mustard roasted salmon over wilted greens and bulgar. I could eat it everyday.

  41. sarah b. says:

    i love the eating well version of hamburger helper called “hamburger buddy.” this cookbook looks great!

  42. Kelly says:

    Healthy dishes I make include burritos, stir-fries and soups. Most of our main dishes would be considered healthy. I would love this cookbook! Thanks!

  43. My favorite healthy dish to make is my mom’s vegetable soup. It’s loaded with every imaginable vegetable. It takes the better part of a day to make with all the chopping then the long simmering. But, it’s so worth it to have containers of it in the freezer so I can just pop it in the microwave for lunch. Then, I’ve got a bowlful of goodness! Mom’s not up to making this any more so I surprised her on Christmas Eve with a pot of her vegetable soup. She was thrilled :-) I’m with you on loving Cooks Illustrated. They tell us WHY something works or doesn’t. I learn more from that magazine than any other cooking magazine.

  44. Andrea says:

    Chicken veggie lasagna is a favorite. I’m so excited about having another excuse to buy a cookbook!

  45. Betsie says:

    I love to make homemade soups and creamed spinach. The cookbook sounds fantastic, Annie! Thanks for reviewing it for us!

  46. andrea says:

    My favorite healthy dish…hmmm. One is the cinnamon rolls in the “cooks illustrated best light recipe” cookbook. They don’t use yeast and they are incredibly delicious. But for a main meal, black bean chili!

  47. Bonnie says:

    My favorite healthy meal is an eggplant sandwich.

  48. Sarah says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is my sweet potato casserole. It feels so indulgent but is so healthy because I use apples & a tiny drizzle of honey on the top to sweeten it rather than sugar and bake it for a long time in the oven. YUM!

  49. Cathleen says:

    Oh, I LOVE ATK and making recipes healthier is a great bonus. My favorite healthy dish to make is grilled chicken served with homemade mango salsa and brown rice.

  50. bekah says:

    Lentils and brown rice with carmelized onions on top. My kids gobble it up!

  51. Crystal says:

    I favorite healthy dinner is baked chicken nuggets. Cut up chicken breast
    Breaded with Panko and ground flax seed, an egg wash,
    On a stone( which helps make it crispy) drizzle of olive oil and bake

  52. M @ Betty Crapper says:

    My morning oatmeal.

  53. Tracie says:

    We love to do tacos with ground turkey and lots of veggies on top.

  54. Lindsey says:

    That sounds like a great cookbook! My favorite healthy dish to make is definitely curried chickpeas and broccoli over quinoa :)

  55. Shawna says:

    A bowl of skinny beans, rice and a smidge of salsa. Delish! And full of protein and fiber.

  56. Katie says:

    Anything with quinoa! I was more than a little bit skeptical when my mom first started serving it to us as a family, but now that I live on my own, I make it a lot! My favorite dish would have to be this stir fry variation with peppers and steak strips served on top of the quinoa. So good!

  57. Nikki says:

    I’m not sure if I qualify because I have an APO address, but I’ll give it a shot anyway.

    My favorite healthy recipe is a bulgur wheat salad with tomatoes and parsley.

  58. Amanda Gerber says:

    My favorite healthy dish most recently has been polenta lasagna. Yes it is incredibly odd sounding, and I am not a fan of corn meal mush. However, if you slice the polenta thin enough it somewhat resembles a lasagna noodle. I don’t make my own polenta, although I could, I purchase the kind in a tube found near the eggs at the grocery. I believe it has 60 calories per serving and there are 5 servings in the roll. It makes an 8×8 dish, which easily feeds 4-5 adults. SOmetimes I make my own tomato sauce and jazz it up with mushrooms and green peppers….then we sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and sometimes fresh basil. My husband, who is a somewhat picky eater, actually enjoys this dish too!

  59. Twin Mom says:

    I’m in Florida, so my favorite healthy recipe of course involves fish. In fact, it can be any type of white fish, though we prefer red snapper. I rub filets with a jerk seasoning, grill, and stuff them into some flour tacos. I top with a salsa/sour cream (light of course) mixture and my own vinegar based slaw. The slaw varies but typically it’s cabbage or broccoli with rice wine vinegar, a dash of olive oil, chopped scallions, and some salt & pepper. They are heavenly! Even my non-fishy husband will gobble them up. Which is ironic since he’s a fisherman. Go figure :-)

  60. Jeanne ODonnell says:

    My fav healthy dish is salmon baked in the oven with any kind of fruit salsa.

  61. Beth says:

    Annie I love your website!!! I check it daily. One of my favorite healthy recipes to make is roasted asparagus. I could it every day.

  62. Gena says:

    I like to make a meatless layered taco dip. I start with lowfat cream cheese; add a layer of black beans seasoned with cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper; then cheddar cheese; salsa; and lettuce, tomatoes, or guac as we have it on hand. My favorite is to dip with the lime flavored Tostitos, but multi-grain or baked chips might increase the health factor. YUM!

  63. Diane says:

    roasted asparagus

  64. Oh gosh, I love Cook’s Illustrated! My favorite healthy meal is homemade vegetable soup.

  65. sheryl says:

    I love making hummus served with toasted whole wheat pita wedges and veggies. Recently made a peanut butter version (replaces the tahini). Delicious!

  66. Jayne says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite healthy dish is Greek Salad. No lettuce is needed… just tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, olives, capers and feta cheese. Thinking about it makes me wish it was summer.

  67. emily jean says:

    i love making a spinach salad with sliced strawberries and almonds! it’s one of the only veggies my husband will eat so i make it quite often!

  68. I love to make soups, espcecially rich hearty soups during the winter months.

    A stirfry with LOTS of veggies, chicken and brown rice. Very little fat, but lots of flavor

    Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity! My favorite healthy dish is roasted cauliflower with extra garlic. And to think I grew up thinking I didn’t even like cauliflower – I didn’t know what I was missing….

  71. Katie says:

    I have so been wanting this cookbook! My favorite healthy thing to cook is an omelet with 1 egg, plus 2 egg whites, low-fat cheese and tons of veggies. Really filling!

  72. Dalia says:

    Roasted Broccoli in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil and a little salt and pepper served with salmon and brown rice.

  73. anita says:

    I love making the Healthy Pad thai!!! It is a big hit with my family, even my 3 year old loves it. We substitute whole wheat pasta for the white noodles and make the sauce from scratch.

  74. Jenny Smith says:

    Stop-the-clock curry over brown rice. Spinach, garbanzo beans, and onions, with tomato paste, curry powder and chicken broth. Fast, easy, and healthy.

  75. Michele says:

    My *newest* favorite healthy food to make is the white fish taco recipe you posted. Thanks so much!

  76. Christen T says:

    I love making lean protein with a lot of roasted veggies like broccoli and potatoes, carrots and brussell sprouts. So simple, and so tasty.

  77. Jami says:

  78. Gwen Bland says:

    Diabetes fun rampantly in my family so while it would be nice to have a perfectly healthy diet, right now we just focus on the reduction of sugar and carbs. My favorite meal under this criteria, is a steak or chicken fajita salad -all the innards of a fajita over lettuce hold the rice, beans and tortilla)

  79. Andrea Watts says:

    My favorite is stir fry with vegetables.

  80. Nikki says:

    I love making my own lowfat, protein packed, low-er carb muffins. I have lots of variations that I rotate through the freezer for a quick grab-and-go breakfast

    My favorite healthy dish to make is Annie’s fish tacos!! Often I make just the fish alone, it’s one of my very favorite recipes!

  87. Kristin says:

    This is tough, but right now I’m thinking it would be roasted cauliflower & garlic w/ lemon & a little bit of Parm. It’s especially yummy with some hummus…takes it from a side to a main.

  88. Jackie says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make a spinach and romaine salad topped with walnuts, strawberries, feta cheese and low fat raspberry vingarette dressing.

  89. Liz says:

    Brussels sprouts! Tossed with some grainy mustard, a little olive oil and either sautéed or roasted until crispy and delicious.

  91. Angela says:

    I love to have a mixed green salad with grilled chicken breast using fresh vegetables from the garden.

  92. Jean says:

    My favorite healthy recipe is pizza. Pizza’s not healthy, you say? My thin crust at home with less cheese is healthier than restaurant I’m sure. :) I’m a pizza fanatic!

  93. Eileen says:

    My favorite healthy meal is baked tilapia with salsa! I’d love this new cookbook!! Thanks for this contest!

  94. Mary Beth says:

    Our current fave is your Chicken Fajitas (5/2010)- so much color and flavor! We enjoy it on whole wheat tortillas or on top of a salad, with just a little light sour cream and cheese. We served it for Sunday Lunch last weekend and our guests loved it!

  95. Lee Anne says:

    Right now my favorite healthy thing is super simple – roasted butternut squash. Even my three year old loves it!

  96. Kathleen P says:

    A big green salad with lots of colorful and crunchy veggies is always good!

  97. Tammy says:

  98. Janet says:

    My favorite healthy meal is quick and easy. Saute onions, bell peppers, and garlic in a little olive oil. Add cooked diced or shredded chicken (rotisserie, leftovers, or broiled for 5 mins a side). Pour in a little chicken broth and a can diced tomatoes, and then add 1 cup of couscous. Cook for 5 minutes. Makes great leftovers.

  99. Nicole says:

    Lately, everything I make is healthy… I’ve recently lost 20lbs, but have another 30 or so to go. So this cookbook would be perfect… no need to calculate the calories in recipes!
    One of my favorite healthy recipes (which is on the menu for this weekend) is lean turkey chili w/ lots of beans and veggies. Super hearty and filling, without the guilt!

  100. Annie says:

    My favorite healthy recipe is a roasted butternut squash salad with chickpeas and tahini dressing. I think of making it often because it’s tasty, not because it’s healthy, but I’m glad that it’s both!

  101. Christine says:

    Favorite healty dish is a greek salad!

  102. DeDe in Guthrie says:

    Spinach and strawberry salad with low fat broccoli soup.

    This cookbook sounds great! I love roasted seasonal vegetables.

  104. Katie says:

  105. Allie says:

    My favorite healthy dish is Chinese Chicken Salad.

  106. Rachel says:

    I’m feeling weighed down with warm you up, stick to your bones winter recipes right now so this cookbook would be awesome. And those fajitas look delish! I love taking fajita leftovers and making tortilla soup—that’s healthy, right?

  107. LM says:

    Right now I’m on a steel cut oats kick!

  108. Emily says:

    We LOVE fajitas! My two favorite healthy things to cook are broccoli soup (no milk or cream, potatoes to make it creamy) and turkey meatloaf (loaded with veggies and Granny Smith apples to keep it moist). Yummy!

  109. Those fajitas look wonderful!! What a fantastic giveaway prize..thanks for hosting!
    My favorite healthy dish to make? As easy as it it, I love just a simple grilled chicken..rubbed with some olive oil, seasoned with salt, pepper, and a little cayenne. A nice big side salad to go along with it! YUM!

  112. Annie B. says:

    We are big on stirfry around here and to top off a meal I have a tiramisu light recipe that is a hit. Very small portions of the dessert keep us happy.

  113. Bridget says:

    Healthy? LOL!!! I guess it is my whole wheat pancakes! I use fresh whole wheat flour from my mill, and I also mill dried northern beans into a white bean flour and thrown that in, too. That way the wheat and the beans combine to make a complete protein. The kids love these pancakes, and they don’t even know the bean flour is in there ;) They are also low in sugar ;) I normally just eat these with sliced strawberries and bananas!!

  114. Sarah R says:

    Oatmeal! I have it for breakfast just about every morning.

  115. Michelle says:

    My favorite healthy dish is probably a good piece of wild salmon and some sauteed brussels sprouts (or green beans). That cookbook sounds awesome and i’m going to be making these fajitas tonight, I needed a recipe and this sounds perfect!

  116. Anessa scott says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is marinated grilled chicken. My family likes to eat this many different ways. With fresh veggies and brown rice. I love to cook but honestly I need help with good healthy dishes .

  117. Megan says:

    Great post! My favorite are Thai Chicken Wraps!!

  118. JoAnne says:

    I love to roast asparagus in the oven with just a little garlic pepper sprinkled on top.

  119. melissa says:

    Falafels! Served with some couscous, hummus and pita- and we’re set for dinner! We love meat, but this is one vegetarian dish that doesn’t have us desiring something more.

  120. Chris M. says:

    My favorite is salsa chicken with a side of vegetables, usually broccoli. Thanks!

  121. Rachel R says:

    I love to make Oven Roasted Green Beans with Lemon and Toasted Almonds. It is so good and a very quick dish to make on a weeknight!

  135. Mandy says:

    I LOVE your recipes! Your blog is my favorite source for new recipes, and great how-to tips. My favorite healthy recipe is a smoothie that is made with 3/4 cup soy milk, 1/2 of a banana, frozen strawberries, strawberry yogurt, flax seed, and as much baby spinach as I can cram into the blender. It sounds and looks a little odd, but you can’t taste the spinach at all and it’s a great way to incorporate more greenery into my diet.

    My favorite healthy meal is grilled chicken & vegetables. I think veggies taste their best when they’re hot off of the grill.

  153. My favorite healthy meal to make is turkey tacos with black beans. It’s definitely a staple in our house! What makes it different than others I’ve had is the mild curry powder. So, I guess you have to be a fan of curry to enjoy these tacos!

  154. Jen says:

    One of my favorite healthy meals to make for my family is my pasta bake. I use whole wheat pasta, fresh vegtables, ground turkey, low fat cheese. It’s wonderful, hearty and healthy!

  156. Jen says:

    I love making soups with tons of fresh veggies. yum!

  200. Amber says:

    a home made salad dressing that my mil shared with me that is served over fresh spinach salad with dried cherries/cranberries, cashews and cheese. It is the only salad that makes my mouth water. It is also is a great marinade for grilled chicken breasts.

  201. JulieA says:

    My favorite healthy meal right now is a roasted chicken in the crockpot. No oils added. Just some herbs and spices, some time and a great meal is waiting when you get home. Add some veggies or quinoa or something for a side, and you are good to go.

  202. My favorite healthy meal is tilapia with chili cream sauce. I found it out of a dieter’s cookbook and like it so much I make even when I’m not trying to be good. You’d never know it was healthy!

  203. Jackie says:

    I try to cook most everything from scratch because I focus on healthy all the time, even desserts. I like anything with spinach, fresh or frozen. Your blog inspires me, though because it’s so colorful and fresh looking.

    My favorite healthy dish to cook for my family is Salsa chicken- easy, fast and each person can fix it up their own way!

  208. Rebecca says:

    I’d love a chance at this book.

  209. Jean says:

    Among my favorite healthy recipes is an older Cooking Light, easy-to-put-together, dish: Shrimp and Feta (with angel hair pasta).

    Chicken stir-fry! It is loaded with all kinds of veggies. Yum!

  217. hillary says:

    I love that this has a vegetarian section and tons of great vegetable sides! I’m a vegetarian but my boyfriend is not so it would be so convenient to cook from the same cookbook for us both! For me, my favorite healthy food to make is chickpea cutlets. They are so delicious with mushroom gravy! They also make a great replacement for a chicken parm and are even great to top salads with. I’ve recreated a ton of your recipes and made them veg-friendly and they always come out great!

  219. jodi says:

    edamame,wheat berry and black bean salad!

  227. Kelly Edm says:

    I think my favorite healthy dish to make is stir-fry. I love that you can mix and match so many vegetables with so many different spices and sauce flavors. It really isn’t as daunting to create as I once thought, and now I look forward to coming up with the veggie/spice mix. I also love a red lentil dish I recently tried, and it is so good leftover using blue chips to dip into it.

  228. Melissa says:

    My favorite healthy meal to make is acutally a chicken fajita salad. Topped with some yummy homemade salsa!

  229. Laura says:

    Cooking Light has this amazing goat cheese and caramelized onion stuffed chicken that is absolutely to die for with some roasted veggies. You would never know it was light!

  230. Chris says:

    Favorite healthy dish?! How can I pick just one?! Right now, my daughter and I are on an Egg White “Samwich” kick. Cook 1/3 cup egg whites (Egg Beaters), then put them on a toasted Sandwich Thin that has been slathered with a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese. Add fresh spinach to the sammie, if you have it. Less than 300 calories and it keeps me satisfied until lunch.

  231. Andrea says:

    I love this Farro and Mushroom dish, I’m not sure it’s a true recipe (as it’s sooo easy) but it’s high in protein and veggies and my family loves it so that’s good enough for me!

    My favorite healthy dish to make is a panzanella salad filled with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers.

  238. Tracy says:

    I’m usually not much for healthy cooking, what being from the south and all. However, crockpot chicken is super easy and very healthy. Put a whole chicken in the crockpot, with nothing else. Let it go all day and it is amazingly yummy.

  239. Sarah says:

    This cookbook sounds great! I really enjoy sauteed shrimp with onions, mushrooms, etc. over a cold salad. It is a great twist to the traditional salad with chicken or shrimp.

  240. Michelle says:

    I love a good grilled chicken salad with honey mustard dressing…mmm!

  241. Lauren says:

    I guess my go-to healthy, quick meal is wheat pancakes with blackberry “syrup.” My kid love it, but they do make a big mess!~

  247. Stacy says:

    A black bean quinoa salad.

  248. Alice says:

    Hummus, hands down! We make a fairly healthy version (no tahini) and whole wheat pita at least once a week – even our dog enjoys it :)

  249. Jennifer says:

    I LOVE ATK cookbooks! Right now my favorite healthy meal is a green bean salad we make for lunch.

    I love to make rice and beans. Tasty and low calorie.

  252. Miranda says:

    I just love your blog Annie! I’ve made so many of your posted recipes now I’ve lost track. Like you, I also tend to overlook the health factor of recipes. The “healthy recipe” cookbooks I’ve tried before always seem to have me longing for something more in the flavor department, but my go to healthy dish is always Homemade Egg Drop Soup. Its so versatile as it can be made with an assortment of veggies. It’s always nice to come home and have homemade soup within the half hour.

  253. HiredRose says:

    A nice big egg scramble made with one whole egg and two egg whites and a lot of veggies. I made one the other day with leeks, mushrooms, and spinach. Hit it with a modest shaving of parmesan on top – Yum!

  258. Sara S. says:

    I’ve got a recipe for an avocado and mango chicken salad with a mango chutney dressing. I love making it in the summer for dinner. So good without being so heavy!

  259. Sounds like a cookbook I’d love! A family favorite in our house that is healthy is Stewed Chicken. My great-grandmother was Austrian and it was her recipe. She made it with tons of paprika.

    Thanks!
    lise

  290. Meredith says:

    A nice salad with a lot of veggies!

  291. Tiffani says:

    My husband and I make a stir fry that has chicken, bell peppers, squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and onion. It’s delicious, and I like to think it’s pretty healthy with all the vegetables.

  292. Nathalie says:

    My favorite healthy dish is anything with grains, especially ones that I haven’t tried yet. My favorite lately is quinoa!

  293. Stephanie says:

    Annie, i love your blog! We made your cilantro lime rice and queso blanco at our supper club last night! They were both delicious! :) The cookbook sounds great!! I love making a low fat pizza with lots of veggies on a whole wheat thin crust!

  294. Kasie says:

    What a great giveaway! I enjoy making lots of different healthy soups. Mostly veggie and seafood soups. I also love anything with egg whites!

  295. Heidi says:

    Wow. That looks like a great cookbook. I do try to eat healthy MOST of the time. My favorite healthy dish is grilled pork tenderloin kebabs with pineapple and onions. I make these with your sautéed zucchini!

  296. Melissa says:

    This book looks amazing! My favorite healthy dish has to be our classic dinner of marianted grilled chicken, fresh tossed salad and grilled vegetables from the garden. Just thinking about it, is making me excited for spring. :)

  297. RA says:

    My favorite healthy meal is a sort of makeover of fettucine alfredo from Cooking Light. The low-fat cream cheese is a great cheat for a cream sauce.

  298. melanie says:

    Baked lemon chicken!

  299. Annette says:

    I love to make Mandarin Chicken Broccoli Slaw. It is so good – and a nice, light meal.

  300. Corvus says:

    I make a pretty tasty Chicken Tortilla Soup that, served with whole wheat tortillas, is pretty healthy. I’d love to expand my healthy repertoire more, though.

  301. Cess says:

    hmm my favorite healthy dish would have to be salmon and kale yum!

  302. Liesel says:

    I LOVE Cooks Illustrated!! Favorite healthy dish? I’m not sure I have anything that qualifies. Like you, I’m more of a moderation girl. Although, we do eat a sausage tortellini soup that I sometimes cook with turkey sausage so I suppose that version would qualify.

  303. Rachel says:

    My favorite healthy meal is lentil soft tacos. They’re easy and delicious.

  304. Kelly says:

    My favorite dish to make is usually some kind of dessert. Sounds odd but I love key lime chiffon pie! Healthier, yet just as satisfying. =)

  305. my favorite healthy dish to make is a potato, chick pea, and pea curry over rice.
    it’s quick and easy to make and super filling.

  306. Maryam says:

    My favorite healthy dish is stuffed grape leaves. I reduce the rice and add extra ground meat. No fats, very little carbs, lots of healthy herbs and veg, plus it tastes fabulous!

  307. I love any kind of seafood. If I’m really on a diet I’ll usually eat tilapia with a green veggie and a little bit of cous cous or quinoa. I do love to adapt recipes though by substituting skim milk, low fat sour cream, etc, etc :)

  308. Rebecca B says:

    Since I love all things fried and dipped in ranch, I also subscribe to the “everything in moderation” thing too or I would go crazy! Anyway, my favorite healthy thing to make is probably baked ranch potatoes. We take new potatoes, cut them into chuncks, lightly drizzle with olive oil and dry ranch dressing mix, then bake! Probably not on ‘The Biggest Loser’ diet, but satisfies my craving and isn’t deep fried! Works for us!

  309. Erica says:

    Hi Annie,
    My favorite healthy dish to make is Baked Salmon with Wilted Spinach & Dijon Mustard Sauce.

  310. Jennifer Lusher says:

    Love your blog Annie! Especially all the cupcake recipes. It’s made everyone in my life very, very happy. :-) As far as a healthy recipe goes, we love maple slow cooker oatmeal. It’s made with steel cut oats, maple syrup, cinnamon and dried cranberries, pop it in the crock pot overnight and its ready in the morning, after you top with toasted almonds of course!

  311. Jenn B says:

    I really love this chicken, pear, spinach and blue cheese recipe that i found from whole foods…pretty simple but oh so delicious

  312. Sarah says:

    Can’t wait to try this cookbook! I have been trying to make healthy meals for awhile now, but my favorite healthy meal is actually a side-dish. I like to make oven fried zucchini sticks and dip them in marinara sauce.

  313. Erin says:

    My favorite heathy recipe right now is Minestrone Soup especially with how cold it is in the midwest!

  314. Kristen says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make at home is Chicken Lo Mein. It’s so much better for my boyfriend and I than the one from our local Chinese restaurant!

  315. Robin says:

    My favorite healthy dish right now is quinoa! I can’t believe I waited so long to try it!

  316. Adriana says:

    My favorite healthy meal includes brown rice with grilled chicken that has been marinated in garlic, pineapple juice, a little soy sauce, and red pepper flakes. Then I top that with mango-pineapple salsa! So delicious and good for you!

  317. Denise says:

    My husband and I are exercise fanatics, and we follow the Zone diet, so our meals are mostly all healthy and are balanced with protein, carbs, and fats. I love salmon with wilted spinach, tomatoes, garlic, and black beans.

    Your site is perfect inspiration for special events and cheat meals!

  318. Vicki says:

    I’m obsessed with roasted beets, for which I make a garlic balsamic vinaigrette. Occasionally I’ll top slices of beets with goat cheese, which is phenomenal!

  319. Niki says:

    Roasted chicken and grilled veggies! Yum!

  320. Thanks for the chance to win this yummy sounding book. My favorite healthy meal would be a spinich and chicken salad with a delicious vinegrette dressing.

  321. Blair says:

    Mmmm………..chicken and white bean soup. Healthy and hearty. Thank you for the great giveaway!
    PS The butterscotch pudding recipe IS fabulous.

  322. Megan says:

    My favorite healthy dish is one I just recently made for the first time. It is a chickpea curry with peas, carrots, cauliflower, onions and garlic. Super flavorful and high in fiber, low in calories. I served it over couscous. It was delicious and I really liked it! It was one of those recipes that just kept getting pushed back and kept appearing on my menu. I just never was in the mood to make it. I’m glad I finally bit the bullet and gave it a chance!

  323. Sarah says:

    My favorite healthy recipe to make is asian lettuce wraps…yum!

  324. Kabara says:

    I have a light french onion soup I LURVE this time of year – warms you up, tastes delicious, and no guilt!

  325. Cynthia says:

    My favorite healthy meal to make are your chicken gyros! YUM!!

  326. Denise says:

    Shrimp and seafood salad.

  327. Michele says:

    Quinoa bowls are my favorite (also an easy stovetop deal). You can definitely play with the vegetables and spices, but I usually saute sweet potatoes, onions, broccoli, and some type of green leafy vegetable with either a curry blend or chili powder blend, and then throw it over quinoa. I add black beans if I need extra protein/fiber.

  328. Mandy A. says:

    My favorite healthy meal is something I can always get my partner to eat: tofu stir-fry! As long as I coat the tofu with cornstarch (General Tso style), she’ll eat as many veggies as I put on her plate. Ah, picky eaters!

  329. JenK says:

    Thanks so much for doing this giveaway! My favorite healthy meal is a beef veggie soup that I make… my husband and I could eat it every week!

  330. Carla says:

    I can always stand to eat more healthy – so thank you for doing this giveaway! I really enjoy making salads at home. I kind of feel the possibilities are endless. Stir-Frys are delicious and fun to make as well.

    If you’re looking for a specific recipe. I make Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies and they turn out amazingly every time. My kids inhale them.

  331. Larkin says:

    My favorite healthy meal is broccoli peanut butter tofu stirfry. You can also do it with chicken, and the sauce is basically a homemmade version of Thai peanut sauce. Super yummy. This cookbook looks great!

  332. Carolyn says:

    My favorite healthy dish is sweet potato soup! You can never have too many sweet potatoes.

    Great to see you liked the cookbook! That was one of the books that caught my eye at B&N when I was browsing the other day.

  333. Jan V says:

    My favorite ‘healthy’ food is to just roast vegetables/potatoes. In the summer, just grill them.

  334. Heather says:

    My recent healthy addiction is Chicken Taco Salad. Yum!

  335. My favorite healthy dish: Mexican lasagna. Lots of veggies and low fat cheese, so delicious!

  336. Katie R. says:

    turkey chili with black beans and veggies! so good and healthy!

  337. Jenny says:

    Homemade chicken fingers for the boys.

  338. My favorite healthy dish to make is this Weight Watchers recipe I found for smothered chicken. It’s SO yummy and always a go-to for our dinners.

  339. Jamie says:

    That would be hands down classic homemade chicken noodle soup and a healthy sandwich to go along side with it. It is perfect for a quick meal and always makes you feel better when you are under the weather :)

  340. Elizabeth says:

    Currently it is a warm barley salad with vegetables.

  341. Kate says:

    My favorite healthy meal is probably spinach & black bean enchiladas. Mmmm!

  342. Karen says:

    My favorite healthy meal is pork tenderloin with roasted sweet potatoes and vegetables. Thanks Annie for the cookbook giveaway! I am a big fan of Cooks Illustrated too!

  343. Leslie says:

    one of my favorite healthy dishes would be a broth based soup with lots of veggies! perfect on a cold winters day.

  344. Marie says:

    I try to lighten up a lot of my dinners as I’m on weight watchers, but my absolute favorite is feta turkey burgers!

  345. Whitney says:

    My favorite healthy dish is parmesan tilapia!

  346. Cindy says:

    One of my family’s favorite is a makeover of fettuccine alfredo that I got out of Kraft Food and Family magazine that uses chicken broth and 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I serve it with steamed broccoli, and occasionally I’ll do grilled chicken with it.

    I always enjoy your blog, and I’m with you on the moderation aspect – if only I could get my husband to follow suit! ;)

  347. Vee says:

    My favorite healthy meal is quesadillas. Even though they don’t sound all that healthy, I never put meat in them (hello, Meatless Monday!), and it’s a great way to feed my husband a variety of veggies. I even slip some black beans in there sometimes!

  348. Kim says:

    I love making grilled fajita chicken – sometimes for in a tortilla and sometimes on a salad!

  349. Andrea C. says:

    Two Bean Minestrone soup!

  350. Carol says:

    I have a delicious vegetarian chili I love to make that’s filled with veggies, beans and whole grain goodness!

  351. Jocelyn says:

    Love your blog! Our favorite healthy recipe to make is spaghetti squash with marinara. YUM!

  352. Melissa says:

    Favorite healthy meal: A copycat version of the salad from Olive Garden with grilled chicken added on top. It’s wonderful!

  353. Brianne says:

    I love taco salad, it is easy to make and you can add all sorts of veggies in with it.

  354. Christi says:

    I love to make taco salad…a nice bed of lettuce with seasoned chicken, julienned peppers, black olives, and some light sour cream for dressing.

  355. Emily says:

    My favorite healthy recipe is a grilled chicken Waldorf salad with a mustard balsamic vinagrette. It’s fun to cut everything up and delicious! I would love more healthy recipes to try out though!!

  356. Jolie says:

    My favorite healthy meal to cook would have to be our black bean tacos with spinach tortillas! I’m a firm believer in the everything in moderation rule!

  357. Traci says:

    Baked chicken parmesan

  358. Rhondi says:

    Chicken fajitas are my favorite when we eat out! And I make them at home all the time, so I can’t wait to try your healthy stove top version. I like how you figured out the percentage of recipes you would make or eat. 75% is great for a cookbook! My favorite healthy dish I always make is grilled chicken tortilla soup. Tex-Mex is my favorite!

  359. Susan H. says:

    For my favorite, quick, healthy meal I throw a jar of heart-healthy tomato sauce, green pepper strips and some turkey sausage into a crock pot for a few hours then make some whole wheat pasta and mix it all together. Easy and yummy!

  360. Josephine says:

    Our family loves my whole wheat/oatmeal/banana muffins.

  361. Danielle says:

    What’s better than a book full of recipes that have been tested in a test kitchen?! I try to make 90% of our meals healthy but one of my favorites is a vegetable plate that I try to make as colorful as possible! I love oven-roasted veggies!

  362. Cathy says:

    I love vegetables! My favorite might seem plain, but I love steamed broccoli.

  363. Laura says:

    Fish Tacos! They are so filling, but so healthy. Yum!

  364. I love making healthier alfredo using pureed white beans! Delicious.

  365. Laura says:

    Cooking Light has a shrimp and grits casserole recipe that I have made for company 4 or 5 times. It tastes rich and indulgent, but it deceptively light.

  366. Kate says:

    In the winter my favorite healthy meal is turkey chili. In the summer, I like roasted shrimp and veggies.

  367. Melissa says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is a vegetable stir fry. And for something sweeter, making my own granola bars!

  368. Vegetable frittata, very easy to put together, tasty and super nutritious :-)

  369. Dana S. says:

    My favorite healthy thing to make would have to be super simple baked asparagus with just oliver oil, salt, and pepper. Easy and delicious!

  370. Jessica says:

    This cookbook looks awesome. I really enjoyed your review of it as well. If I don’t win, I might just have to go out and buy it for myself. I am really trying to be more healthy this year and making healthier choices. My favorite healthy meal to cook is either taco soup or grilled tequila lime tilapia with whole wheat rice pilaf and roasted veggies.

  371. Amy K. says:

    Can cookies count as a healthy dish? Bon Appetit’s Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies are made sans butter or flour and use only egg whites. Crunchy on the outside, brownie-like on the inside they just might be the best chocolate fix you could ask for. Plus, dark chocolate has lots of those yummy antioxidants we all need this time of year, right?

  372. thebookofarmaments says:

    I’m with you – I really love fajitas!

  373. Lori says:

    Chicken noodle soup or red beans with turkey sausage and brown rice.

  374. Joni says:

    My favorite healthy meal is sweet potato with black bean salsa. I mix some canned and drained black beans with tomato (or not, for my husband), and add cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper and warm it up. Then I put it on top of a cooked sweet potato, dot on a little sour cream and some cilantro, and dinner is ready. Fast, easy, and healthy.

  375. JessD says:

    Veggie stir fry over brown rice or the fantastic quinoa black bean salad my husband makes

  376. Deborah says:

    My favorite healthy meal is Marinated Grilled Chicken and Veggies.

  377. karen d says:

    I would really love to win this book! I’ve recently lost over 100 lbs. and am always looking for new inspiration in new recipes. One of my favorite “lighter” meals is a cross between an Alfredo and a carbonara. I use low fat cream cheese, skim milk, a little garlic, salt, white pepper, and Italian blend cheese (just a little goes a long way), frozen peas, and crumbled turkey bacon. Add it to whole wheat pasta and sprinkle with chopped tomato and chopped scallions. Very easy, good, filling, and not too many calories.

  378. Bekah says:

    We love to make chicken and veggie stir fry – yum!

  379. Marisa says:

    My favorite healthy meal is bruschetta chicken…a nice chicken cutlet with fresh tomato, onion, garlic, and balsamic vinegar over the top. YUM!

  380. Alycia says:

    Hope I win this! My favorite is a healthy turkey chili.

  381. Nicole W. says:

    Annie! You make this cookbook sound really amazing! My favorite healthy dish to cook is probably a veggie chili – especially in the winter

  382. Daniela says:

    My favorite healthy side dish is quinoa with red, yellow, green bell peppers, lemon juice, and goat cheese.

  383. Jennie says:

    My favorite “healthy” version of a comfort food is the stovetop mac-n-cheese recipe from Cooking Light. I love it…it’s creamy and tasty and has tomatoes added to it, so you feel like you’re getting some vegetables in the mix, too. Otherwise, I have several soups or salad recipes that are “healthy” that I love.

  384. Kalliope says:

    I love roasting vegetables. No matter the season, there’s always something yummy to roast… asparagus, squashes, cauliflower. MMmmm!

  385. Shannon Locklear says:

    Grilled chicken with with some roasted asparagus or zucchini!

  386. Team M&M says:

    Favorite healthy dish = this salad: cook up some onions, diced chicken, and corn. Season with cumin and lime juice. Put on top of baby spinach leaves. Add diced Roma tomatoes, diced avocado, and crumbled tortilla chips on top! Enjoy!

  387. Maria says:

    mine would be some homemade hummus

  388. Lisa in Fort Worth says:

    Mini Meatball Soup with ground turkey meatballs baked, then added to the broth and veggies with tons of fresh spinach!

  389. Lindsay says:

    We love to have a healthy mexican night of meat free taco salad. Yum! Thanks for the giveaway.

  390. amy says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is turkey spaghetti with whole wheat pasta!!!! Yummy

  391. Dani says:

    Those fajitas look and sound delicious! My favorite healthy recipes are simple sauteed spinach, oven-roasted green beans and roasted salmon. My husband and I often joke that we could just eat the 2# bag of green beans for dinner because they’re so tasty when roasted.

  392. Shauna says:

    I realized as I went to answer this questions that healthy dishes are apparently few and far between for me. Yikes! I’ll say that I really like to healthy-up our Mexican food by using a black bean and corn mixture instead of ground beef.

  393. I’ve been eyeing this book, and unfortunately didn’t get it for Christmas like I was hoping! Hmm… favorite healthy meal to cook? Lately I’ve been having a lot of fun with different flavor variations of Steel Cut Oats. Kinda boring, I know but I’ve been loving it.

  394. Abbey says:

    I love to make healthy thin crust pizzas with a whole wheat crust!

  395. Jacqueline says:

    Fish rubbed with Oregano and Brown Sugar, then grilled!

  396. Katie says:

    It’s almost too easy to count as a recipe, but I love roasted veggies like zucchini, summer squash, onions, mushrooms, peppers, etc. Just cut ’em up, spray on some Pam, and season with salt/pepper/garlic powder/whatever. Yum!

    Thanks for doing the giveaway, Annie!

  397. Hilary says:

    oops, I posted on the wrong blog entry. I love to make fajitas or shrimp tacos. They’re some of my faves too.

  398. brenda says:

    my favorite healthy dish to make is vegetable soup with any and every kind of fresh vegetable i choose at the time. but, always garlic, red and yellow peppers, haricot vert, onion with 1 lg can of kitchen ready tomatoes as the base…i also ike to add a tablespoon of cinnamon and a cup of quinoa…low cal, fat free and lots of nutrients..

  399. Donna Tanner says:

    I have recently discovered Quinoa. A healthy source of protein and low in fat.

  400. Laura Harbeson says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is savory garlic chicken. (I love your blog!)

  401. Breanne says:

    My favorite healthy meal to make is a grilled chicken breast, over lots of fresh veggies and spinach, topped with a homemade roasted tomato, garlic, balsamic vinaigrette. Yum!

  402. Scott says:

    My favorite healthy food I like to make is buffalo chili with black beans, onion, garlic, cumin, corriander, cocoa, cayenne and red pepper flakes, diced tomatoes.

  403. Julia says:

    My favorite recipe is one for Grilled Salmon!

  404. Kerwin Kolheffer says:

    I think my favorite healthy meal might be pan-seared tufo and vegetarbles with peanut-ginger sauce. the searing of the tofu gives it some textures and substance and veggies add a fresh, “healthy” feeling to the dish. Adding a creamy, ginger-y sauce brings the whole thing together in a way that makes it seem like a treat, rather than something one is supposed to eat to be well. (FYI, my sauce uses hot water, (non-sweetened -if you have it) peanut butter, fresh ginger, soy sauce, white pepper and maybe hoi-sin or fish sauce and sometimes celery seeds and green onion. I adjust it to fit what I have on hand.) I serve it either over egg-noodles (rice noodles would be better, but I rarely remember to buy those) or jasmine rice.

    I am excited about this cookbook and am enjoying these healthy recipes. I need some more of these after last weekend when I made BOTH the ricotta-lemon pancakes with blackberry sauce AND the dark chocolate, chocolate chip cookies (Read: I felt like violet in Willy Wonka)

    Thanks, Annie

  405. Erica says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is Taco Chilli! It is soo good, that it is hard to believe it is healthy! :)

  406. Mary Beth says:

    Homemade vegetable soup – very tomatoey (sp.?) with lots of green beans, potatoes and carrots.

  407. Sarah says:

    I love ATK! They have never let me down. My favorite healthy dish to make is a lighter mac and cheese with cauliflower and onion from Real Simple. The portions are huge and so filling.

  408. Megan says:

    I love to make grilled salmon, couscous, and veggies for a healthy and easy dinner for my family.

  409. Mrs. Smith says:

    Strangely enough, I think spinach salad might be my current favorite (it’s strange because I’m not really a big fan of salads). I add lots of veggies, fruit and nuts.

  410. LeighAnne says:

    I LOVE making broiled salmon with a greek yogurt sauce and grilled asparagus on the side. Yum, yum, yum!

  411. Rebekah says:

    Although it changes quite often, currently, my favorite healthy dish to make is your white fish tacos :)

  412. Julie says:

    I love Mexican Casserole and found a lighter recipe that my family really enjoys.

  413. Kristy D. says:

    The healthy dish I make on a regular basis is a “lightened” green chicken enchiladas. Make with just a few simple ingredients, they are fresh tasting and healthy!

  414. Sarah L.J. says:

    My new favorite healthy recipe is pretty simple. Take a boxed mix of brownies and add a can of black beans. They are rich, delish, and easy! The boxed mix is not the healthiest, but you can also sub a homemade brownie mix and use black beans as the liquid.

  415. Tish says:

    I love to make green smoothies, so refreshing!

  416. Susan Smith says:

    I would have to say one of the following: chicken gyros, salad, fruit salad, or chicken parmigiana (weight watchers’ version).

  417. Kate says:

    I always like to make a stir fry with lots of vegetables when I’m in need of a health boost. I love America’s Test Kitchen…and would love to get my hands on this cookbook!

  418. Jessica H says:

    My favorite healthy dish is the lower-fat blueberry muffins from the low fat ATK book. yummy.

  419. Emily O. says:

    We’ve been experimenting with rubbing chicken breasts with different Penzey’s spices and then broiling them – quick, tasty, and uses little to no oil. Thanks for the giveaway! The regular ATK cookbook is one of our favorites and this new one looks wonderful!

  420. Kristin says:

    I love making sauteed salmon served on a salad of spinach and romaine and whatever dressing I have on hand with roasted garlic & rosemary potatoes on the side.

  421. Tina says:

    I never used this cook book but wanted it because i absolutely love America’s test kitchen. Right now my fav. healthy recipe is Oven “fried” chicken from the Eat This not That cookbook. It’s delicious!

  422. Shawna Steffen says:

    See – I don’t know that I have a truly healthy dish, which is probably why I need a cookbook exactly like this!

  423. Brittany says:

    Spaghetti squash casserole!

  424. JessT says:

    Grilled buffalo chicken! Yum!

  425. Wendy Omiotek says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is a roasted nori wrapped meat dish. Marinate any type of meat, I usually use flank steak sliced extra thin and marinate with soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and garlic. Cook some rice, jasmine works great. First you brush nori sheets with roasted sesame oil, sprinkle with salt, then roast over a burner or grill very quickly just to toast it without burning it on both sides, set aside. Then I cook the meat either on a grill or saute in pan, then grill some red peppers.
    When everything is ready place some rice in the center of the nori topped with meat and roasted red peppers, roll up and eat. DELICIOUS, and healthy! I have used salmon, chicken, even tofu is good. I dip in ponzu sauce for an extra kick, my husband likes srirachi!

  426. Jennifer says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is lemon chicken with brown rice. Yum! My husband doesn’t care for it, but that means more for me ;) Thanks for the chance to win!

  427. Kim says:

    My favorite healthy meal is homemade chicken or turkey noodle soup. It is perfect for cold winter days as well as for a quick meal after a busy day.

  428. Sean says:

    This looks like a great cookbook. I have a recipe for low-fat corn chowder that is really great.

  429. Sue says:

    I would have to say that home-made soup (when I make my own broth) along with buttermilk wheat bread ( made from freshly ground wheat) is about as healthy cooking as I get! (I love the ATK cookbooks!)

  430. Emily says:

    I love making Asian Honey-Broiled Salmon. It is easy and healthy!

  431. Emily says:

    My favorite healthy meal to make is Roasted Caulifower and Tomato Tortellini. It is so delicious.

  432. Gwyn says:

    I enjoy making anything with fish, lately salmon!!

  433. Sasha says:

    Hubby and I love Mexican food, so our favorite healthy dish is Pillsbury’s pineapple and black bean enchiladas. It sounds like a weird combo, but even carnivore hubby likes it!

  434. Megan says:

    YUM!! I also love fajitas! My favorite healthy dish is black bean enchiladas with a side of avacado and radishes topped with a little olive oil. It’s such an interesting texture and flavor combination.

  435. Linda S. says:

    I love that the cookbook has nutritional information; I need low-carb alternatives. My favorite healthy alternative is roasted vegetables (onion, peppers, eggplant, carrots, mushrooms, etc.) with olive oil, rosemary, a little sea salt, and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

  436. Eva says:

    We make a fresh chicken quesadilla with spinach, red bell peppers, mushrooms and grilled chicken on a 100% wheat tortilla.

  437. Tricia says:

    Roasted Vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, and tomatoes) over whole wheat pasta. So hearty and healthy. I love it!

  438. Sarah says:

    I love a good veggie chicken stirfry!

  439. Anne W. says:

    My absolute favorite healthy thing to make is soup…all kinds the last one i made was spicy carrot soup. I added a little too much sambal but it was worth it, it’s so hot but i don’t care. :)

  440. Meredith W says:

    I love making chicken stir fry – It’s a recipe from the South Beach Diet but it is so good! I’d love to try this new cookbook, too!

  441. Kathryn says:

    I got this cookbook for my birthday and it is great! I loved it so much that I bought for a good friend and she also loves it. The chocolate chip cookies in this cookbook are so good that my kids actually asked me to make the healthy ones because they are so delicious. I have made the turkey tacos several times and they are great. Good for leftovers on a salad or in a whole wheat burrito the next day. The chicken parmesan is so good you will not even think you are eating a healthy recipe. The chicken enchiladas are equally as yummy. Using this book is a great way to lose some weight without depriving yourself of the foods that you love. As a self-professed foodie, this is the only way I could ever do it! So glad you featured this fabulous cookbook!

  442. Krista says:

    The cookbook sounds awesome! My favorite healthy recipe is one I just tried this week — whole wheat penne with white beans, spinach and sundried tomatoes.

  443. Emily says:

    My favorite healthy recipe is an island spiced pork tenderloin. I believe that you have a version of this dish on your site!

  444. Rebeca says:

    I love making my healthy version of arroz con pollow. Yum! These look great!

  445. Kathy says:

    I love making your Fish Tacos recipe.

  446. I love whipping up a pear chicken salad for a quick healthy meal. Thanks for the giveaway Annie!

  447. Jill says:

    My favorite healthy thing to make is white chicken chili.

  448. Suzanne says:

    I have been eyeing this cookbook for quite some time. The fajitas look delicious! Black bean burgers are my favorite quick and healthy meal.

  449. Courtney says:

    I’ve got a fantastic light recipe for gnocchi with spinach and pine nuts. One of my favorite meals of all time!

  450. Jess says:

    My family’s go to healthy dish is blackened venison caesar salads with homemade croutons and caesar dressing. I love ATK. The radio show is great too :)

  451. Jennifer says:

    I would have to say homemade chicken tortilla soup with extra black beans.

  452. Megan says:

    Ahh this cookbook looks great! I love new sources for things to make! (One of ) my favorite healthy recipe is spinach salad with mandarin oranges and simple chicken. Little bit of balsamic, little bit of feta. delish!

  453. Staci T says:

    Mine would be whole wheat penne with roasted tomatoes and shallots with cannelini beans in a lemon garlic sauce.

  454. Sara says:

    I love your blog and your recipes! Thank you.

    My favorite healthy dish is probably spaghetti with turkey meatballs. The meatballs also have pureed sweet potatoes in it so it’s healthy AND has a hidden veggie. I serve it on whole wheat pasta with a salad.

  455. Stephanie says:

    My favorite healthy thing to make always involves the grill! Definitely grilled chicken or fish with some citrus involved. Maybe I’m just thinking that right now because I’m longing for grilling season after a freezing Chicago winter!

  456. Beth G says:

    I love making a low fat vegetarian lasagna. It lasts for multiple meals, makes great leftovers and fills you up!

  457. Michelle says:

    Broiled Salmon w/red pepper powder and cilantro with Garlic Saute Chard and a small sweet potato

  458. Julie M. says:

    I love, love, love your grilled chicken fajitas!

  459. Katie T. says:

    My husband and I have come to love black bean burgers! The onion, cilantro, and jalapeno give them so much flavor without the fat of red meat. Baked sweet potato fries are the perfect complement!

  460. Sarah says:

    ATK is the absolute best! My favorite healthy dish is a quinoa salad with chickpeas and veggies in a lemon vinaigrette – yum!

  461. I love doing grilled teriyaki chicken over coconut rice! Or ground turkey breast tacos!

  462. April says:

    My favorite healthy meal is chicken lasagna.

  463. Megan says:

    This looks like a great cookbook to help with my new years resolution! My favorite recipe is grandma’s chicken noodle soup. Thanks!

  464. Jaimee says:

    I’m not so good at healthy either, but your turkey “Asian Lettuce Wraps” are up there. I just made them last week!

  465. Hanaa says:

    Lentil w/veggies soup and homemade whole wheat bread are one of my fav healthy dishes. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  466. Gary Soucie says:

    FRESH bluefish (in other words, very recently caught, and probably by yourself), filleted, the dark, bloody stripe removed, skinned, cut into finger-size pieces and eaten raw (sashimi)with a dipping sauce of soy sauce, lemon juice, and perhaps a little wasabi. Even if you think you don’t like bluefish, you will like this. As long as you like sashimi or sushi.

  467. Nicole G says:

    This sounds like a great cookbook! My favorite healthy meal right now would be Burrito Bowls! I love how I can get my family to eat brown rice (when usually they all hate it!) and we can pile on the veggies and beans and it is delicious!

  468. *S* says:

    My favorite healthy meal is a green salad with grilled chicken.

  469. Julie F says:

    I really like to make spaghetti with grilled chicken and zucchini and a little bit of parmesean!

  470. Amber says:

    Soups! All kinds, chicken con queso, white chicken chili, tomato. Guacamole is another favorite at our house, healthy and goes on everything!

  471. Barbara Youngren says:

    I roast all of my veggies and my husband (heart attack survivor) loves them! He says that’s the only way to eat them. I too believe in moderation but skip the fats whenever I can. I would love this book. ATK is the best!

  472. Jennifer says:

    Whole wheat pasta with grilled chicken and broccoli with lemon olive oil.

  473. Diane from Kansas says:

    My new favorite recipe is the “Black bean and salsa soup.” I tried it recently on a snow day. My family loved it and it was truly the easiest recipe I have ever made. Healthy and delicious– a win-win recipe!

  474. Marissa Taylor says:

    Favorite heathly meal is a Rachel Ray Thai Chicken noodle soup, it has peppers, onions, cilantro, chicken and noodles. Yummy!

  475. Lynn says:

    My best according to my kids is either a stir fry or fajitas! Really, they are almost the same recipe, just a few different spices and then served with rice or shells.
    Thanks!

  476. Allison says:

    I love to make baked fish coated in egg whites, dijon mustard and panko bread crumbs! Living in Florida with a fisherman, I have a lot of fish to cook, and this is fabulous!

  477. Tan says:

    Turkey spinach meatloaf…it doesn’t sound *that* great – but it’s amazing!!

  478. Kenadi says:

    Thanks Annie! My favorite healthy dish to make (or at least the one I make most often) is oatmeal pancakes. (Is it still healthy if my husband makes me add chocolate chips? – ha ha!)

  479. Erica says:

    My favorite healthy recipe is Ina Garten’s Guacamole Salad. It’s a great salad that is perfect for summer BBQs and is super easy to make.

  480. Anne says:

    I recently made a delish pumpkin turkey chili with black beans.

  481. Allison says:

    I’m a vegetarian so I eat fairly healthy dinners (if you substract the desserts!). Recently I discovered farro and quinoa and I love trying new recipes with them. Deborah Madison’s curried quinoa with peas and cashews is awesome. Instead of stock it uses carrot juice!

  482. Shannon says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is vegetable pita pockets. You smear some low fat garden vegetable cream cheese on the inside of a whole wheat pita pocket, then fill it with chopped up veggies of your choice. I use carrots, cucumbers, red and green peppers, and broccoli, but you can use any raw veggies that you like.

  483. Christine says:

    I love America’s Test Kitchen! Our favorite healthy meal is terryaki chicken stir fry with brown rice. It’s filling and flavorful and my 2 year old loves it!

  484. Wendy says:

    I love parfaits! Lots of fruit, greek yogurt, granola and a drizzle of honey. YUM!

  485. Natalie B says:

    I don’t know if it’s my favorite to make, but it’s my families favorite to eat. We all love lemon pepper tilapia and steamed broccoli. Simple, healthy and yummy!

  486. Teslaca says:

    I love to make big salads with a large variety of raw vegetables. I may put some grilled fish or chicken on top or just beans and then use an avocado dressing. I’d love to win this cookbook!

  487. Laura says:

    Asian chicken salad with cubed baked chicken, fresh greens and sesame ginger sauce.

  488. April says:

    My favorite healthy dish is turkey meatloaf! Loads of veggies hidden in this bad boy. I hope I win. I want this cookbook!

  489. I’m like you – I just about always order fajitas when I go to a Mexican restaurant! I can’t wait to try these!

  490. Carly L says:

    Mixed veggies with salt, pepper, garlic, and a drizzle of olive oil, wrapped up in foil, and cooked on the grill. It tastes better when you use butter instead of olive oil, but you said healthy, so that’s what I do when I’m trying to eat well :)

  491. Lauren says:

    I love the South Beach crab cakes with zesty red pepper aioli. It’s SOOO yummy!

  492. Jenn says:

    I love to make Grilled chicken salads that are loaded with fresh veggies and a light balsamic dressing. I also make a veggie pizza and try to use only a small amount of cheese to keep it light!!

  493. Kate says:

    Black bean and goat cheese tostadas!

  494. Sarah W says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is bulgur burgers with tahini mayonnaise.

  495. Ashley C says:

    I would love to win this book, as I always love a good Cooks Illustrated recipe! My favorite healthy but delicious recipe is definately Asian Lettuce wraps, yum.

  496. Maria says:

    Annie, I have to agree… Moderation wasn’t in my vocabulary for a long time. But of course, new year, new me, right? Recently I have loved making hummus to eat with carrot and celery sticks. I also made some black bean burgers that were absolutely delicious on some whole-wheat buns, topped with more fresh veggies. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  497. Amanda says:

    I think my favorite healthy recipe is one I learned from Hungry Girl. Its a Pizza made with an english muffin, sauce, and laughing cow cheese. Its delicious!
    But my fiance and I also created a healthy dish we eat often. Its just a concoction of rice, corn, black beans, chicken, and avacodo.

  498. Samantha says:

    My recent absolute favorite healthy go-to dinner is Rick Bayless’ chicken tacos with roasted tomatillo salsa…so good! I thought that I hated tomatillos until I made this, and now we’re having it once a week at my house :)

  499. Katie says:

    I love to make grilled chicken salad with a homemade jalapeno/cranberry vinaigrette. Yum!

  500. Anna M says:

    I’ve been groovin’ on split pea soup lately because it’s so chilly in MN!

  501. Sarah says:

    I love the sound of this cookbook! As for my healthy recipe, I make a vegie lentil soup with moroccan spices. It’s easy and yummy.

  502. Chewie says:

    I just made mine last night…snow is falling and the temps are close to zero here, so I made a huge vegetarian pot of soup. There are so many veggies in there I defy a cold to make us sick! *grin* It is made with vegetarian broth and everything from carrots to cabbage to green beans and beyond. Delicious and very good for you.

    Chewie

  503. Mellisa W. says:

    Mango smoothies with greek yogurt. Thanks!

  504. Holly says:

    Homemade spaghetti sauce FULL of spinach, carrots, fresh tomatoes and herbs. Kids and husband eat up every single time:) Make a double batch for freezing while I’m at to keep on hand for a quick dinner.

  505. Annie says:

    My recent favorite dish is your turkey meatballs with cranberry sauce!

  506. Jamie says:

    My favorite healthy dish is buffalo chili with tons of veggies. Best on a snowy day.

  507. Ellie says:

    My family loves my dynamite Veggie Fajitas. The filling includes brown rice, along with onion, red and green peppers, zucchini and carrot sauteed in a homemade salsa then topped with a low-fat cheese. Yummy goodness.

  508. Stacey says:

    oh I would love to win this book! I love stir fries! Big salads and veggies with light dip.

  509. Christy says:

    My favorite is baked salmon with lemon!

  510. Megan says:

    This cookbook sounds great!! My favorite healthy dish…..probably my vegetable beef soup. It’s my mom’s recipe and I looooooooove it.

  511. Valerie says:

    My favorite healthy dish is a low-fat broccoli salad made with Splenda and low-fat mayo. It’s so good!

  512. Sabina says:

    My favorite healthy meal to make in the summer is Marinated Grilled Flanksteak over a super healthy salad. Salad dressing is olive oil, limejuice, garlic and pepper. thats it. Salad includes cucumbers, tomoatoes, avocados and romaine hearts. Avocades give the dressing a bit of a creamy texture. Yum – just thinking of it now makes me hungry!!!

  513. stephanie says:

    My favorite healthy dish is a variation on your chicken bowls with brown rice. SO many people have asked me for the recipe when we try it and my husband has a Chipotle obsession so he loves it too. :)

  514. Patty says:

    I love healthy cooking and have lots of faves, but last night I made roasted chicken breasts with chickpeas and tomatoes that was super easy and super YUM! It uses a spiced oil rub – olive oil, smoked paprika, cumin and garlic. You rub it all over the chicken, toss it with chickpeas and cheery tomatoes and add a little to Greek yogurt to serve on the side.

  515. My favorite healthy thing to make is grilled shrimp and veggie skewers. Shrimp is excellent grilled and adding a full array of colorful veggies (I like zucchini, tomatoes, onions, and mushrooms) makes a great and super healthy meal!

  516. Matt says:

    My favorite healthy dish is a cassoulet loaded with vegetables.

  517. Beth P says:

  522. Jean says:

    Such a cool giveaway! My husband and I are healthy eaters (except when we indulge in sweets!) and usually stick with recipes out of Cooking Light or Eating Well magazines. I would love this cookbook! One of my favorite healthy recipes is a Chinese dish, ma po tofu (made with a spicy chili garlic sauce) with a side of brown rice.

  523. Megan says:

    I love the whole wheat pasta recipes from Cooks Illustrated. Our favorite is the Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Italian Sausage and Fennel. It is an interesting change up to have no tomato sauce on pasta, but it works soo well with the sausage and fennel. My hubby loves the sausage part and I love that it’s so good for you!

  524. kerry says:

    My favorite healthy meal is chili roasted broccoli

  525. Janine White says:

    I love the multi-grain pancakes recipe from this book. I love others too but we make the pancakes the most. they taste great reheated and provide breakfast options during the week when we are in a scramble. I admit I already have the book, but I’d love an autographed copy. :)

  526. Aubrie says:

    I can’t wait to try these fajitas, they look delicious!

    My favorite healthy meal to make is stir-fry, using whatever veggies we happen to have on hand at the time!

  527. Leigh Hensley says:

    Sweet potatoe hummus is the best healthy dish!!! So delish and you can eat it anytime of day.

  528. Lindsay @ Brownies For Brunch says:

    Currently I’m enjoying a recipe my mom showed me. It’s a Italian Shells dinner with a low fat ricotta, spinach, and whole wheat noodles. It’s fast, simple, and oh so delicious!

  529. Ashley says:

    Our favorite healthy meal is when we are able to make our first summer salad from the garden. We top it will grilled chicken and a little olive oil and red wine vinegar. It is the most amazing meal ever!

  530. Jaime says:

    I have a few healthy dishes I like to make for the family, but the one I have been enjoying for myself are poblano and mushroom tacos on corn tortillas for lunch. A little salsa, cheese, and lettuce on top, and you’ve got yourself and delicious and healthy meal.

  531. Kelli says:

    I love making homemade pizza with whole wheat crust and lots of veggies on top!

  532. Angela says:

    Healthy stuff? I really do like fajitas. I love quinoa with grilled chicken and roasted vegetables. I would love this cookbook, thank you for the chance!

  533. Rebekah Fitts says:

    I love to make healthy muffins with oats and wheat flour and either pumpkin or butternut squash.

  534. Sandi says:

    My favourite healthy dish would have to be gyros. I use whole grain pitas, low-fat or non-fat yogurt, extra lean ground beef, and tons of garlic and veggies! So much flavour, so little calories! YUM!

  535. Stephanie B. says:

    I would love to win this cookbook!! My favorite healthy dish is to saute’ sweet potatoes with a little sprinkle of cinnamon!

  536. Lori says:

    Homemade chicken noodle soup!

  537. Eryka says:

    We have been eating healthy in 2011. Favorite healthy dish..Mexican Chicken Soup!

  538. Whitney says:

    I love to make baked fish with stir-fry veggies! It’s quick, it’s tasty, and it helps with my hubby’s genetic cholesterol issues. Love it!

  539. Susan Crane says:

    Favorite healthy meal is egg white omelite with lots of veggies and low fat cheese.

  540. Chrissy says:

    I love making stir fry for my family! Funny story… I used to babysit Christopher Kimball’s children when they would come in town to visit his parent’s in San Francisco. I had no idea how cool he was!!!

  541. Heidi says:

    a salad of roasted corn, shelled edamame, a little red onion, salt, pepper, lime juice and cilantro – very refreshing and would be a good side with the fajitas!

  542. Joy says:

    To satisfy our sweet tooth and still be healthy we make vegan pineapple right side up cupcakes. Delicious pineapple glaze on top instead of frosting!

  543. Nancy says:

    My ALL TIME favorite healthy recipe is sloppy joes! Pile it on a whole wheat or multigrain english muffin and you won’t even realize it’s healthy! This recipe is always a winner and makes great leftovers. It’s also a great way to add in a bunch of extra veggies for those (me) who don’t love them!

  544. Sara says:

    As a registered dietitian eating healthy is very important to me. As a current medical student, my primary goal is to just make sure I have food to eat and it that it doesn’t take a long time to make. My favorite healthy meal is a Chicken Divan recipe from Clean Eating. The process is a little labor intensive, but it is so worth it, because this meal tastes amazing and is very healthy. Every time I make it, I cook up a huge batch and freeze it in individual portions.

  545. Franci says:

    I’ve been obsessing over Joy the Baker’s Kale and Sweet Potato Soup!! Super yummy AND pretty darn healthy!

  546. Jennifer says:

    Just wanted to say that I love your blog! Thank you!

    Our favorite healthy dish to make is a veggie and cheese quiche with a brown rice crust. It is a great way to use leftover rice. We always use sauteed veggies (usually spinach and mushrooms), 2% cheese, and skim milk. It is a go-to meal for my family probably once a week. We change up the veggies and may try meat with the veggies one of these days. Lean protein – whole grains – veggies – it doesn’t get better (or easier) than that!

  547. jamie says:

    yay for giveaways!! i would comment for the chance to win an autographed piece of cardboard by Mr. Kimball. anyway, :) my favorite healthful meal is one i make for just myself, as i’m home alone for lunch. skillet, black beans, coordinating veggies & spices, all piled into a tortilla. it’s almost embarrassingly simple, but so good and easy. i looove black beans!

  548. Krystal R says:

    This sounds like my kind of cookbook, and my fave healthy dish to make right now is chipotle chicken tacos. Spicy, tasty and oh-so delicious!

  549. Rebecca N says:

    My favorite healthy dish is the salmon we made last night, its grilled and covered with brown sugar and dijon mustard.

  550. Kathy H. says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is an apple, pear, and walnut salad that I keep in my fridge ALL the time. It’s got a little red wine vinegar and fresh orange juice, golden raisins, chopped apples and pears, walnuts, and olive oil. It’s yummy!!!!

  551. Lisa Frank says:

    I love Barefoot Contessa’s roasted red pepper & eggplant dip! So much flavor and so good for you, it’s a great party alternative to rich and heavy dips like spinach-artichoke. Don’t get me wrong…I love rich and heavy…but I’ll save those calories for dessert! :-) This cookbook sounds awesome!

  552. Cheryl says:

    My favorite healthy dish is grilled fish with roasted veggies.

  553. Katy M says:

    We healthified our favorite split pea soup, even adding a dollop of plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream garnish = great!

  554. Mel F says:

    When I feel like cooking something more healthy but quickly, I love to simply grill a boneless, skinless chicken breast and pair it with some fresh veggies cooked slightly on the grill, such as zucchini, yellow squash, onions, red and green peppers. Just a little olive oil and some seasoning and you’re done! Just wish it wasn’t winter in Vermont right now, I’d love to have that for dinner tonight!

  555. Anna B says:

    I make a Pasta Veggie Vinegarette that is absolutely delicious as well as healthy!!

  556. Annette F M says:

  558. Christina says:

    My favorite healthy dish is a simple salad! I love salads and enjoy topping them with cranberries, feta cheese, pecans, various fruits…the combinations are endless.

  559. Michelle Johnson says:

    I just recently found a new favorite, healthy dish to make. It’s Gnocchi with Zucchini Ribbons and parsley brown butter. Don’t let the butter fool you into thinking it’s not healthy, there isn’t a lot in the dish. It is so delicious that after I made it the first time I could not stop thinking about it for days! Even my husband, who is not a zucchini lover cleaned his plate and wanted more.

  560. Valerie Norris says:

    I’ve made a Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup that uses fat-free half and half, and actually liked it. I’m looking forward to buying (or winning) the Test Kitchen’s cookbook because so many healthy recipes either cut the taste or the portion size, or both. I can trust the Test Kitchen to come up with healthy substitutions that don’t ruin the dish!

  561. Serena says:

    My favorite healthy dish is spaghetti & meatballs made with whole wheat spaghetti and turkey meatballs.

  562. Kevin Gallaghwr says:

    I would definitely choose to make the stove top fajitas!

  563. Marsha says:

    I am new to your blog and love it. My favorite healthy dish to make is also fajitas. I julienne red pepper, green pepper and red onion, toss with olive oil and salt/pepper and roast and brown lean ground turkey. On a big platter, I layer the peppers and onion, the cooked ground turkey and sprinkle lowfat cheese on top. I serve with lowfat sour cream, salsa and diced avocado! Delicious and I don’t even feel like I am missing anything.

  564. Stacy Baker says:

    In general (aside from my unbridled passion and addiction to baking!), I try to cook somewhat healthy. One of my quick, go-to meals that all three kids will eat is Salsa Chicken. You take boneless, skinless chicken breasts and dredge them in a packet of taco seasoning mix. Lay the chicken breasts in a baking dish and top with your favorite salsa. Bake for approx. 30 minutes, topping with a little reduced-fat cheese during the last 10 minutes. So easy and made with ingredients I always have on hand. Serve with brown rice, vegetables and a crispy, green salad.

  565. Samantha says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is grilled chicken with fresh steamed veggies quick and easy!!

  566. Shirley says:

    My new favorite healthy dish is veggie lasagne with spinach and portabello mushrooms. I use part skim mozzarella, low fat ricotta and fat free sauce.

  572. Kirsten T says:

    The first meal that came to mind is my steel cut oatmeal that I make in a huge batch ahead of time. I take it as a mid-morning snack at work with nuts (pecans are my favorite) and fresh or frozen fruit it’s yummy! Or our black bean vegetarian chili, so easy!

    Also, why can’t more cookbooks come with tabs and in a 3 ring binder?! I love it!

  573. Erin K says:

    This recipe looks great! My favorite healthy dish to make is fresh pico de gallo served with shredded marinated Mexican chicken on tortillas. There is nothing better than fresh pico, and I serve it year-round!

  574. Jenny says:

    I have just recently started cooking things that are on the healthier side. One of my favorite things to make as a light snack is zucchini with parmesan sprinkled on top popped under the broiler for a couple of minutes.

  575. My favorite healthy recipe changes from month to month as I’m OBSESSED with finding and making new recipes! :)
    But this week, it has been all about black bean burgers. In fact, I just finished my last one. I’ve been eating them every day.

  576. BeccaSP says:

    Minestrone!

  577. Laura says:

    In the winter, there’s no more satisfying way to eat light than roasting veggies. As a side, an additon to a pasta dish, or a filling for a burrito, seasoned roasted vegetables are hearty, filling and delightful. (Just be sure not to be too heavy-handed with the olive oil! : )

  578. Mary says:

    Favorite healthy dish: grilled chicken with fresh veggies as a side. Oh, so yummy and healthy!

  589. Stacy P says:

    I would love this cookbook! May favorite healthy meal is mustard lentils and salmon. Yum!

  591. Anne says:

    Butternut squash turkey chili. My absolute hands-down favorite. :)

  592. Beth says:

    Sounds like a great cookbook!! I make a healthified chicken pot pies. I can make 8 at a time and freeze them, pull them out when I don’t have time to fix something.

    Really would love to add this cookbook to my collection. My favorite healthy thing to cook would be roasted homegrown root vegetables w/smoked sea salt. I also love a steamed chard with a bit of home-cured bacon and carmelized shallots.

  602. I guess I don’t think in terms of “healthy” vs. “not healthy” when it comes to my cooking, but I suppose my turkey meatloaf would be considered a lighter version of a classic.

  603. christyd says:

    My favorite healthy meal is by Giada; it’s turkey stuffed zucchini with an Italian flair. Everything you need in one meal; meat and veggies in one dish! It’s absolutely delicious!

  604. Stacie Ryans says:

    My favorite healthy recipe to make is seven layer salad.

  605. Ali says:

    I am drooling over those fajitas now…

    My fav healthy dish is a side dish. Cranberry Relish.

    Chill overnight & its like bliss to me.

  606. Susanna says:

    Corn and Bean Salad- in the summer i was making this all the time- fresh, raw corn kernels, kidney or black (or whatever) beans, bell pepper, onion, cumin, lime juice- so refreshing!

  607. Caroline says:

  611. Karen says:

  612. Janis T says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  613. Nicole C says:

    My favorite dish is so easy, it’s almost embarrassing to post – my family loves asparagus light sprayed with olive oil cooking spray and spinkled with cajun seasoning, bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or grill. Even my three year loves this!

    Shrimp Stir Fry is what I always make for dinner when we’re trying to eat healthy. PS. Love the new site.

    This sounds like an AMAZING cookbook! I love to try healthy recipes. I really like a WW meatloaf – it has a great kick but my favorite is a noodle casserole with chicken, rotel tomatoes, veggies and cheese. It probably isn’t SUPER light (and could be made lighter with a few variations) but it’s easy to make and definitely falls under the category of “comfort food” for me – YUM!

  641. Kristi M. says:

    I would have to say Asian Lettuce Wraps. Time intensive but oh so worth it and good!

  642. Lisa says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is white bean soup. Sides would be baked sweet potatoes with thyme and nutmeg and wilted spinach with roasted tomatoes. Yum – this is a feast!

  643. Penandra says:

    I am a huge fan of America’s Test Kitchen and own several of their cookbooks. My favorite healthy food is homemade granola — what’s not to love, I know the ingredients that have gone into it, it’s healthy and it tastes good! (I’m eating some with yogurt while I input this comment! ;-) I’ve adapted David Lebovitz’s recipe which I really love (and enjoy sharing with friends and co-workers . . . almost all of whom ask for the recipe!)

    My favorite is your black bean and salsa soup recipe!

  655. Dana says:

    My favorite healthy meal to make is – fortunately – my boyfriend’s favorite dinner to eat! It’s called Mexican Casserole, and it has tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, ground lean turkey, black beans, white corn, and seasonings, and then I cover the top with a simple corn bread mix and bake. It’s super easy and super healthy!

  656. Anna Was says:

    I love to cook and we have a variety of dishes throughout the week but one that I always come back to because everyone can make their own is Chicken Tacos. Some like beans, more vegetables, lots of sour cream..to each there own. It is perfect for my family! Thanks for the great opportunity!

    My favorite healthy thing to make is baked sweet potatoes. I love to eat them plain with no butter, no sugar, just the potato :)

  668. Jenelle says:

    My favorite healthy go to meal is salmon poached in white wine, with garlic and herbs, sauteed green beans in olive oil with mushrooms, served over risotto. Mmm!

    I am just starting to cook healthy and so far my favorite is Italian baked chicken and rice.

  670. Caitlin says:

  673. Jen says:

    My favorite healthy recipe…? Wow. I have about 8 million. But I love that banana brulee oatmeal recipe you posted. It’s delicious!

  674. Michelle says:

    My new favorite recipe right now is Margarita Chicken. It’s a simple and easy slow cooker recipe that is EXTREMELY healthy! Boneless skinless chicken, Margarita mix (non-alcoholic), garlic, dijon mustard, and honey. It’s sooo full of flavor and not bad for you at all. Even my 16 month old son eats it with a smile!

  675. Fallon says:

    I love making spaghetti squash topped with a fresh tomato sauce from diced tomatoes, garlic and fresh basil. Some ricotta and parmesan to top it off and you have a delicious and healthy meal!

  676. Lauren says:

    I love to make my own hummus, it’s so easy and I can change up the flavors.

  677. Amanda says:

    Salad! I love playing with “add on’s” and dressings.

  678. Denise says:

  681. anne says:

    I just made black bean soup for the first time and i think htat was pretty healthy! anne

    I also love the ATK hummus – it’s my go-to recipe!

  683. Would LOVE this cook book. I am a HUGE ATK fan! :) I love to make home made granola with fruit salad :)

    Hmmm, hard to choose. Today it is Vegetarian Split Pea Soup.
    :-)

    Susan B

  698. Beth says:

    This book sounds great! My favorite is grilled stuffed zucchini with grilled chicken and brown rice.

  699. Tessa says:

    I love your site, Annie! I have made several of your recipes and have loved every one of them, so thank you for sharing. My favorite healthy recipe would have to be the Cooking Light version of Shrimp Po’Boys because they are so flavorful, which I think is important for healthy recipes, and my husband actually requests this meal!!

  700. Deborah says:

    I love ATK! The Healthy Family Cookbook would be a great addition to my cookbook library! My favorite healthy dish is vegetable beef soup with mushrooms, cabbage, turnips, carrots, onions, and whatever other vegetables I have on hand.

  701. Mariel says:

    My favorite healthy dish is a tofu curry with brown rice. It’s so easy to make and has just enough flavor and spice!

  702. JaneC says:

    Sure would love to win this cookbook. My favorite healthy meal is grilled chicken with a side of roasted tomatoes and a salad.

  703. Jeannine Q says:

    I love making soup. Any type of soup will do too.

  704. Leanne says:

    We always cook healthy meals by including things such as whole wheat pastas and breads, substituting quinoa for rice, and trying to go double-veggie or lean meat on meals that allow for it. We still indulge in our favorites, but it’s all about balance.

  705. Deborah says:

    I love asparagus but have never baked it. This sounds good…I’m going to have to try it…Thanks!

  706. Andreia says:

    I love making a low fat spinach artichoke dip! It’s especially awesome when I bring it to parties, people rave about it and I can proudly tell them that its low fat! As a side note, I will definitely be trying the fajitas because fajitas are my all time favorite!!! Thanks for the recipe!

  707. Jodie says:

    I love to make homemade granola bars full of healthy nuts and dried fruit.

  715. Tricia G says:

    My fave healthy dish to make is Grilled Fish Tacos!

  716. I love brown rice and refried beans. Healthy and comforting! :)

  717. Katie Flanagan says:

    Super giveaway! After a weekend of indulgence when I want something super healthy I always reach for salmon (wild caught only!). I like to bake it with just a drizzle of olive oil, s & p. I will also roast potato wedges and have some sort of steamed vegetable on the side. It is delish and uber healthy.

  718. Marissa B. says:

    I am SO excited about this cookbook – I live for America’s Test Kitchen and Cooking Illustrated. Chris Kimball is awesome and I love his bowtie – I’ve been trying to convince my husband to wear them but no dice!

    Alright, my favorite healthy recipe is double dark chocolate chip cookies…if only they were healthy…I would actually have to say wild salmon. Ina Garten has a recipe for Asian Glazed Salmon (I use low-sodium soy sauce) and I usually pair it with some steamed broccoli or asparagus. Simple as that and SO DELICIOUS

    Seriously I would LOVE this cookbook

  719. Kirsten says:

    My step dad taught me a chicken recipe that is my go-to and is pretty healthy! It’s chicken browned in olive oil, then seasonings are added (garlic, Chef Prouhomme’s (spelling?) Poultry Seasoning, pepper, whatever). Then add soy sauce (reduced sodium) and white wine or lemon juice (or both) and let the chicken simmer. Remove chicken, deglaze soy sauce/wine mixture and pour as a sauce over the chicken. Yum!

    I love ATK and Cooks Illustrated so I think I would love this cookbook too. Might have to go out and buy it if I don’t win it after your review!

    Thanks, as always Annie, for such a great website and amazing recipes!

    Kirsten

  720. Lisa says:

    I love to prepare grilled Ginger Lime Shrimp. Nothing like fresh ginger & lime!

  721. I like to make homemade hummus to snack on with veggies!

  722. Beth S says:

    I love making taco salads for a quick healthy meal. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  723. Amberli says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is a kinda burrito. I cook black beans, some corn, and a black bean salsa. Then we serve it on a whole wheat tortilla with some brown rice and sour cream. It is yummy. Maybe I got the recipe from here!

  724. Joanne says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is…hands down, this version of zucchini crudo that I make with tons of lemon juice and capers. Addictingly good.

  725. Tamy says:

    Love Americas Test Kitchen!! My favorite healthy dish to make is Grilled Chicken salad! Especially in the summer when its too hot to cook inside! And all 3 of my kids love it.

  726. TheresaSea says:

    *WANT* this book so badly! My husband and I completed the South Beach diet last winter, and my fave recipe from their book was for buttermilk oat muffins. They were incredibly moist, very healthy, and kept well! :) Yum!

  727. Missy says:

    My favorite healthy dish is stir-fry with tons of veggies.

  728. Bridgette Rogers says:

    I just recently came across a new favorite this week! Mediterranean Soup. I love it because it is very easy to add your own spin to it.

  729. Kara says:

    I love to make a good grilled chicken salad, or salmon.

  730. Sarah L says:

    My favorite pasta salad with whole wheat pasta, capers, zucchini, sundried tomatoes, lemon zest, walnuts and olive oil. YUMM!!

  731. Justin H says:

    I’d have to say my homemade veggie pizza using homemade tomato sauce and part-skim cheese. As long as you’re light on the toppings and the crust is thin, it’s a surprisingly healthy dish.

  732. Mary says:

    I make a dish with black bean, tomatoes, carrots & chicken & serve it over jasmine rice!

  733. Dear Annie, My favorite healthy dish to make is turkey meatloaf with diced carrots, onions, and celery…. I even use whole wheat bread crumbs:) To my surprise with a little barbeque sauce my kids eat it up:) I steamed some broccoli for the side and they were happy!

  734. Jeanne says:

    My favorite healthy dish right now is a zucchini and tomato soup.

  735. twyla says:

    I like to make crockpot oatmeal w/ steel cut oats, barley, and wheatberries. Yum!

  736. Felicity says:

    I really make an effort to make everything I cook healthy. If it’s high in fat, calories or salt then it’s probably not getting served around here. Unless it happens to have chocolate in it, and then all bets are off!

  737. RubyKat says:

    I absolutely love ATK!! Love making salads and low-cal chicken salad on a bed of romaine lettuce or mixed greens.

  738. Adam says:

    Hey Annie,

    Black Bean and Corn Soup with Lime is my favorite healthy meal. It is great with a bit of avocado across the top. I make it for work lunchs. If you do not add tomatoes, it is great filling for burritos. This is a great give away.

    Thanks,

    Adam

  739. Christy says:

    I make a really good baked lemon pepper turkey breast that everyone just raves about.

  740. Right now my favorite is either a fresh salad with lots of great toppings or a really good soup. Both with lots of vegetables!

  741. Carmen Y says:

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter drawing! Would love a copy of ATK’s newest edition. One of my favorite healthy recipes is Black Bean Pumpkin Chili – lots of fiber and protein, low fat, high in taste! Always a winner at my house! You can make it with fresh or leftover squash (not caramelized, please!) or canned pumpkin. Served with some homemade whole wheat focaccia and a nice salad.

  742. Allison A says:

    Grilled Chicken Salad

  743. Jennifer K says:

    In the summer when fresh vegetables are at the market, I love making a super easy ratatouille that doesn’t require hours and hours to make. But lately I’ve been making a roasted turkey and baked sweet potato wrap in a whole grain tortilla shell. I drizzle the “guts” with a little maple syrup, fold up the wrap and stick it in the toaster oven.

  744. Tasha says:

    Any kind of warm grain based salad, especially if it has chickpeas and lots of veggies.

  745. Rachel says:

    Can’t wait to try this recipe!
    My favorite healthy thing to make is baked salmon with roasted asparagus. Simple, bit my hubby loves it!

  746. Bree Locke says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is probably taco soup. Similar to the black bean soup I just read on here!

  747. Kendra says:

    My favorite healthy recipe?? OH MAN! I would have to say my favorite snack EVER…cucumber salad. Consists of cucumber, tomato, a little olive oil, a little lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste and some green onion! SOOO GOOD and light. MMMMM ;)

  748. Libby says:

    Those fajitas look pretty good – and for a somewhat inexperienced cooker, I think I could tackle them! My fave healthy dish – broiled salmon and roasted asparagus.

  749. melissa says:

    grilled salmon!

  750. JennyG says:

    I make a healthy white bean and swiss chard soup that is delicious. The cookbook sounds great.

  751. Maria says:

    It’s a toss up between a Weight Watchers Gumbo recipe and a Cooking Light Chicken Pot Pie…they are both sooooooo good!

  752. Paul Cotter says:

    I love to make my own hummus. I’m a food nerd. So I start with dried chick peas instead of canned. But I think it makes all the difference. A great filling, healthy snack…nothing like store bought.

  753. Angie says:

    Oooh! Me! Pick me! :-)

    My favorite healthy dish to make is roasted or baked salmon, usually topped with a fruit salsa. It’s a great meal, especially during the summer.

  754. Janelle says:

    I love my homemade Chicken and Brown Rice soup – especially during this time of year :)

  755. Christina C says:

    Balsamic Chicken with Green Beans. It’s yummy, doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, and very low in fat! :)

  756. Edie says:

    Looks great, I am going to try this. My favorite healthy meal is chicken chili. So good on a cold night.

  757. cindy says:

    I make this pasta dish with whole grain pasta turkey sausage feta and red pepper. Absoulutely wonderful.YUm!

  758. Jessica S says:

    Broiled Garlic Pepper Salmon with Roasted Parmesan Broccoli. YUM

  760. Sarah says:

    Spinach and Garbanzo Beans. :)

  761. Andrea M says:

    Ooooo… A family favorite is a greek quinoa salad with lots of veggies and an olive oil and lemon dressing. The perfect dish to stick in the fridge and munch all week! Super hit at pot-lucks, as well…

  762. maria says:

    Would your French Onion Soup qualify as healthful? I think so, and my husband made that last night. It was wonderful! Thank you, Annie!

  763. Lisa Y. says:

    I love Mexican food too! My favorite healthy meal would have to be my black bean soup. I cheat a little with a spoonful of sourcream…but it’s so yummy!

  764. Jessica says:

    I try to eat only healthy meals during the week so there are quite a few I love. Probably the tastiest is kale and white bean soup with tomatoes and Italian turkey sausage. I always forget how delicious (and easy) it is.

  765. Sylvia says:

    Strawberry Yogurt Smoothies — using non fat yogurt, of course. My daughter, who won’t eat strawberries is happy to drink them!

  766. Liz N says:

    I love making Asian lettuce wraps. Those are my go to recipe.

  769. Camille says:

    I love to keep a bunch of fresh spinach in the fridge and throw it in to things — soups, salads, smoothies, chili, whatever. For whatever reason, my kids seem to never notice it!

  770. Kristyn R says:

    I just learned how to roast beets, so for now, my favorite thing to make is a roasted beet salad with homemade blood orange vinaigrette and goat cheese!

  771. This cookbook sounds great. I may have to pick one up even if I don’t win. Cooking healthy is something I do frequently. I normally splurge once a week or so with a not so good for you meal, but my favorite thing to make is a one-pot dish that I sort of made up with brown rice, some type of protein (usually chicken or shrimp), a little bit of olive oil, a little bit of lime juice, garlic, some black beans (for more protein), and sometimes i’ll throw in some edamame (for a splash of color). Of course the addition of something green on the side doesn’t hurt either. :)

  772. Emily A says:

    Definitely salmon and asparagus rice pilaf from a Cooking Light magazine. It’s a delicious one pot meal!

  773. Greg says:

    Nothing beats some fresh salmon for me. Done up pretty much anyway, baked/sauteed/poached. You hear alot about fish tacos…never heard of anything about fish fajitas. Would be good I bet with the right kind of fish and some fresh veg and salsa. Might have to experiment with that this weekend myself.

  774. Sabine says:

    my favorite healthy dish right now is Spinach tortellini soup.

  775. Rhi says:

  777. Lacey says:

    My favorite health dish to make is shrimp stir-fry!

  778. Cammy says:

    I love breaded zucchini — I bake it vs frying and it is so good. It only requires a little bit of milk and breadcrumbs to coat. Thanks for the chance to win!

  779. ShelbyP says:

    I like to make grilled chicken salads. So easy and so fast and pretty darn healthy!

  780. Dana Marie says:

    *** Stir Fry *** I tend to use any fresh veggies from the farmers market even if they are not your typical asian veggie and I use fresh ginger, soy sauce or even a thai peanut sauce.

  781. Becky S says:

    Spinach salad with mandarin oranges, fresh strawberries, roasted walnuts, and dried cherries or cranberries… SOOO yummy!! :)

  782. ahh I would LOVE to own this! My favorite healthy dish? Roasted vegetables…esp roasted sweet potato slices! My favorite snack :)

  783. Jimena says:

    Hi Annie,

    I would say one of my favorite healthy dishes to make is a quinoa salad. I cook up the quinoa and add whatever veggies and/or beans I have on hand. This week I made a version inspired by a rice pilaf Whole Foods sells. I added cranberries, onions, parsley and a little bit of light sweet vidalia onion dressing. Yummy!

  784. Tess says:

    My favorite is roasted butternut squash soup – I got the recipe from a cooking class I took and I could eat this all year long.

  791. Inna says:

    Grilled Basil Chicken with Whole Wheat Couscous. Delicious!

  792. Lauren says:

    I make a delicious salmon salad with boiled red potatoes, tons of veggies, and honey dijon vinaigrette.

  793. Dani says:

    My husband makes this amazing honey glazed salmon…oooooooooh my gosh. In an effort to make it healthier (which, in his mind, means less messy for him to clean up) he’s been playing with blackberry glaze and next week it might be blueberry. Gotta love me some fish and fruit!

  794. Brittany says:

    This book sounds awesome! Especially the veggie section, I feel like I never know what to make for sides.

    My favorite healthy dinner is actually chicken alfredo! I just modify the classic recipe by using baked or grilled chicken, whole wheat pasta, light/low-fat sauce (and only using 1/2 the recommended amount). Add a bit of garlic and maybe some olives or mushrooms & voila!

  795. Carlie says:

    My most recent healthy fav. is BBQ ranch salad. Keep the dressing light and cram in the veggies. YUM!

    My fave lately is the Cooking Light recipe -Baked Goat Cheese and Roasted Squash over Garlicky Fettuccine

  799. Leanna says:

    I love vegetarian Indian dishes. Vegetable korma, chana masala, curried lentils and sweet potatoes, etc.

  800. Carolyn McCambridge says:

    Our favorite meal is turkey pumpkin chili. It is full of yummy veggies like bell pepper, tomato and jalapeño, has the lean protein and gives you an extra vitamin A kick with the pumpkin. A few dashes of cinnamon make it a hearty and filling dish perfect for chilly evenings!

  801. Jenny says:

    Cajun Chicken Salad….Yum!

  802. Joan C. says:

    Baked honey mesquite salmon with steamed broccoli – 210 calories

  809. Jacqueline says:

    My favorite healthy thing to make is… Wow this is a lot harder than I thought it’d be. It seems like all my favorite things to make involve baking! But I guess if I had to pick one it’d be Halibut provencal! Very summery with fennel and lots of veggies!

  813. Jeanne says:

    I make a marinara sauce based on a Giada de Laurentis recipe that my husband loves. The sauce has celery, carrots, garlic, crushed tomatoes and onion in it all things my husband wouldn’t eat if they were served alone. Served over a 100% whole wheat spagetti, the sauce makes a meal he thoroughly enjoys and is really good for him which makes me happy.

  814. Deborah Gardner says:

    I’m not a lover of healthy foods normally, but I do love turkey chili with kidney and black beans and garden fresh peppers and tomatoes-no canned tomatoes for this.

    I would have to say black bean dip with fresh-baked tortilla chips.

  822. Mailyn says:

  823. Céline says:

    I enjoy lentil garlic soup. Healthy and so so delicious

  836. Brenda says:

    Balsalmic Chicken and Asparagus salad. (A Washington Post recipe)

  838. Laura R. says:

    My fave is definitley salmon with garlic and lime plus veggies and quinoa.
    Had it for dinner last night – awesome!

  839. My favorite healthy dish is probably oatmeal. I love cooking old fashioned oats on the stove for breakfast, and then adding in healthy additions such mashed banana + blueberry, pumpkin + a few chocolate chips, peanut butter + banana, etc, etc! The best part is I can do it one morning, but make a double or triple batch, and eat it for breakfast a couple days in a row. This is good because I’m often in a hurry to get out the door.

  840. kvossler says:

    Navajo Stew from Simple Suppers by the Moosewood folks. I just made it again last night, but I’ve been making it ever since I got married four years ago. The recipe takes the following ingredients that are growing here in Austin right now: sweet potatoes, onions, potatoes, and also black dish, peppers in adobo sauce and diced tomatoes. It’s a comforting food for cool (or cold if you don’t live in TX) winter nights and has a bit of a kick to it. Serve with plain yogurt or sour cream to soften the punch. Serve also with whole wheat pita, tortillas or naan to scoop up its goodness. Mmm-mmm…too bad we had company so we didn’t have leftovers this time!

  841. Sharla says:

    One of our favorite healthy meals is vegetable stir fry with lots of colorful peppers & broccoli.

  842. Becca J says:

    My favorite healthy snack is plain old hummus with lots of lemon and garlic. We all love it, especially my 1-year old. Fun giveaway!

  843. Monica says:

    My favorite “healthy” dish isn’t really all that healthy but I like to tell myself it is. It’s your pasta with roasted garlic, white Cheddar & gine sauce. TO DIE FOR!

  844. cara says:

    Hi Annie,

    I love your blog! My favorite healthy dish to make is baked oatmeal.

    Thanks,
    Cara

  845. Sara says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is bison meatloaf. I use bison since it’s low in cholesterol and fat and high in protein. And I puree anywhere from 5-10 different kinds of vegetables and mix them with the meat. It’s an entire meal (with sides) in one dish!

  846. Melissa says:

    I love to make recipes with oatmeal. Be it a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, or some oatmeal muffins it is always a winning ingredient!!

  847. Lisa says:

    The fact that this book includes nutritional info makes me want it! It is so frustrating when cookbooks don’t include that info!

  848. Katie says:

    My new favorite is a spinach salad with pears, craisins, walnuts & a vinegarette! This cookbook looks amazing & would love to have it. I am always looking for good food to make my husband eat healthy.

  849. Melissa says:

    Oatmeal. Any recipe with oats is a winner!

  850. Brittany P. says:

  851. Laura T says:

    My favorite healthy thing to make is a Skinny Chili recipe I got from a fundraiser cookbook put together by my daughter’s school when she was in middle school. She’s now 36. :) Great tasting chili with very little calories.

  852. Natalie D. says:

    My favorite go-to recipe for healthy and tasty eating is chili. I can use up all kinds of veggies and use lean gr. beef or turkey. I usually make cornbread with it and shred carrots and/or zucchini into it. Tasty and healthy too! This cookbook looks awesome!

  853. Mary says:

    Since it is cold outside right now (current temp…5 degrees) my favorite meal is turkey chili. Healthy and yummy on a cold winter day-so I’m making it for dinner tonight :)

  854. Rosie says:

    sweet potato and black bean burritos!

  855. Nicole Zace says:

    Hi Annie! Wow…this cookbook sounds amazing! My favorite healthy food to make is a crock pot taco soup (I think it started as a weight watchers recipe). It is so delicious and most people don’t even know it is a healthy food!

  856. Anabele8 says:

    I would love a copy of that cookbook! I desperately need to expand my cooking skills! :) my favorite healthy meal is middle-eastern inspired: tabbouleh, falafel, and tsatsiki in a pita! Yum

  857. Marcia says:

    I love to make Puerto Rican rice and beans. Love it, plus it’s healthy!

  858. Sherrie says:

    My favorite healthy winter dish would have to be your white chicken chili (reduced amount of sour cream). Everyone loves it and is the perfect winter meal!

  859. Michelle T. says:

    Racking my brain to come up with something, I just realized…I don’t HAVE any healthy dishes that I make! Not a single one!! (Not that what I make is particularly UN-healthy…just none of them are overly healthy!)

    I do make a pretty darn good salad though, usually with some kind of fruit, like apples or pears, red onion, avocado, feta cheese…

    I really DO need this cookbook so I can start giving my regular cooking a healthier makeover!!

  860. AnneS says:

    Thanks for the review of the cookbook. I would love to win it. My favorite healthy recipe is an old one from Cooking Light. It is a summer garden frittata. It has zucchini, eggs, seashell pasta and a tomato and balsamic ving./basil topping. Great with fresh tomatoes from the garden!!

  861. Beth says:

    I like to make a healthy version of Taco Rice, using brown rice, ground turkey, organic tomatoes and black bean.

  862. Katie says:

    I have been using spinach in everything lately, and substituting quinoa for any other grain in our recipes to pack more healthy protein into our diets!

    The book looks great – thanks for doing a giveaway!

  863. Maggi says:

    Roasted broccoli with garlic. Easy and delicious way to get in your veggies!

  864. Alyssa says:

    Hi Annie! Love the blog and I love that you’re on facebook :) My favorite that you’ve shared is the Snicker’s cupcakes, but that’s not healthy.

    My favorite healthy meal has to be chicken salad on whole wheat bread with baked Lay’s as a side. I like to mix it up between sweet with grapes and cranberries and savory with onions and celery.

  865. Lydia says:

    My favorite healthy recipe? I love a good stir-fry!

  866. Kim says:

    My husband is a personal trainer and avid fitness buff, so I’ve had to learn to cook accordingly. We love to make breakfast burritos (or is it burritoes?) with egg whites, corn, black beans, salsa, and a little low-fat cheese. Mmmmmm…

  867. Annette says:

    I LOVE roasting vegetables in the oven with a little olive oil and seasoning. It is a way for me to eat vegetables, lots of them, and love it!

  868. Mrs. Smith says:

    I love to try out new healthy recipes so this is tough! I’ll just pick one: I love almond-encrusted tilapia with sauteed spinach and mashed sweet potatoes.

  869. kate C. says:

    Veggie chili – chock-full of healthy veggies and so tasty too!

  870. Anna says:

    My favorite healthful dish to make is Ina Garten’s stewed lentils and tomatoes. We eat it at least once a week for dinner and the leftovers for lunch the next day. It is delicious!

  871. Laura P says:

    I have to say I think crock pot lentil soup might have to be my favorite but a close second is defintely baked oatmeal!

  872. Christin says:

    Tzatziki! It goes with a lot of meals, even on bread or as a dip or my favorite, on a Doener. It’s really healthy, too… Hmmm….

  873. Chris E says:

    I love salmon – grilled or poached or in with pasta!

  874. I love to make grilled veggie sandwiches with roasted red pepper spread.

  875. Brooke says:

    One of mine is defiantly baked cranberry apple oatmeal… mmmmm such a great way to start a day!

  876. Gail says:

    The healthy meals I make generally revolve around beans–black bean soup, spinach & black bean lasagna, bean burritos. I think I need to expand my menus!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  877. Kari says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is Mediterranean Chicken with Rosemary Orzo – a recipe my sister-in-law made for me when I had my baby. Thanks!

  878. Amy says:

    chinese chicken salad. yum.

  879. Probably 17 bean soup. So tasty!

  880. Heather says:

    I like making pretty much all our meals healthy…

    We eat a lot of soup and my chicken veggie soup or one of the many bean soups I make would definitely fall into the healthy, eaten often category at our house! This sounds like a great book. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Heather

  881. MaryBeth says:

    I like making nice, fresh salads loaded with lots of vegetables! Mmm!

  882. Chelsea M says:

  885. Steph says:

    Minestrone. Yum!

  886. AMANDA K says:

    My kids favorite healthy dinner is a recipe my mom created, she calls it Green Bean Soup… it has whatever veggies you have on hand with potatoes and sometimes ham or sausage, with a vegetable broth base. So yummy and the only thing my kids ask for seconds of!!!

  887. Terri from NC says:

    Oven roasted vegetables of any kind!

  888. Jen T says:

    I love stirfries! I also really like grilling- dinner about three times per week consists of some sort of grilled lean protein and veggies.

  889. Esther Soffer Roberts says:

    My favorite healthy meal to make for my family is ATK beef chili, but I sub in ground turkey and add two extra cans of beans. My family LOVES it!

  890. Kimiko says:

    Whenever my boyfriend and I feel the need to eat something healthy for dinner, we usually end up making a quick meal using salmon, whole wheat couscous (I always have a box on hand!), and some type of vegetable dish/salad.

  891. Yula T says:

    My favorite healthy dish would have to be quinoa taco salad-crunchy, flavorful goodness! Love your site, Annie, and congrats on your soon-to-be here baby girl!

  892. Melanie says:

    Definitely a spinach and strawberry salad. Love those flavors together!

  893. Sara says:

    My husband and I love to cook with seasonal ingredients that we harvest ourselves, be it fresh chantrelle mushrooms, venison, turkey, salmon, ling cod, and a multitude of organic fruits and vegetables from our friends’ gardens. We enjoy spending the time together making something we know is good for us that came right from our neck of the woods! So, I can’t pin down any one favorite recipe, but maybe a new cookbook would help!

  894. Lindsey says:

    This cookbook looks like a lot of fun! My favorite healthy recipes usually involve granola–I love a breakfast apple granola crisp with barely-sweetened granola crumble on top, served with yogurt! Yumm!!

  895. Lindsay says:

    Mmm.. now I’m thinking about my favorite healthy meal, and getting oh-so-hungry! I love faro, cooked with chicken stock instead of water for extra flavor. Topped with light crumbly goat cheese, sliced avocado and some oven roasted beets. For an extra kick, a little preserved lemon vinaigrette. So filling and so many nutrients, I never feel deprived!

  896. Bethany says:

    Mine would have to be my vegetable soup! I love soup for the winter, but I have to say that even in the summer I’m craving vegetable soup. I just love how I can get all those yummy vegetables in one bowl. Yummy!

  897. Erica says:

    My favorite healthy go-to meal is grilled chicken or fish and a nice heaping salad. Baby Spinach mix, chopped walnuts or pecans, dried cranberries, a sprinkle of blue cheese and topped with oil and vinegar! So simple and so delicious!!

  898. Leela says:

    I like ATK’s lighter chicken parm recipe. Super crispy, it’s hard to believe it’s not fried.

  899. Maureen says:

    I like gazpacho soup. While not so wonderful in the cold months it is a great soup to enjoy on a hot summer day. It is mainly fresh veggies that are all good for you.

  900. Julia says:

    Super exciting giveaway!!!

    I love to make hummus for an easy and healthy snack!

  901. Callie says:

    I love to make roasted brussel sprouts!

  902. Beka says:

    This cookbook looks fantastic…I recently moved back to the states from some time in Scotland and Turkey. While I was there I learned to eat a lot healthier because the produce was so cheap. I found out that healthy stuff can actually be yummy (Don’t get me wrong, though, it didn’t stop me from consuming a huge cheeseburger my second day back)! Anyway, this cookbook would be a great help for some of my healthy eating adventures.
    My favorite healthy recipe is probably Egyptian Red Lentil Soup with a side of toasty whole grain bread!

  903. Lana says:

    Roasted broccoli with garlic, red pepper and parmesan. It’s so quick, so easy, so ridiculously delicious that the only reason I don’t eat it every single day is… I actually have no idea. Should fix that.

  904. Kim says:

    My favorite healthy meal is a green smoothie with a salt and peppered fried egg! So light and easy.

  905. Paula C. says:

    I have been looking at that cookbook. I’m glad to hear it has your stamp of approval. My favorite healthy recipe Giada De Laurentiis’s Roasted Vegetable Primivera.

  906. Jennifer says:

    I made lentil loaf last night, and it is quite tasty. I love that it is completely meatless and that my whole family loves it… and that takes a near miracle.

  907. Debby says:

    I have found so many wonderful, healthy meals from Cooking Light magazine. My favorite would have to be a gazpacho panzanella salad.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  908. micaela says:

    My favorite healthy meal…a fruit smoothie made with any flavor Greek style yogurt, a little milk, frozen fruit (blueberries,strawberries etc..) and a swirl of honey! Can’t get any healthier than that! Although..I may add some wheat germ to the next fruit smoothie!

  909. Ashlee says:

    I have been drooling over this book at Barnes and Noble. I love roasted root veggies with rosemary and olive oil.

    Switching up from the traditional breakfast every now and then is always fun. My favorite healthy dish to make is a veggie fritata using egg whites. Yum! :-)

  911. Erin says:

    This sounds like an amazing cookbook! My favorite healthy dish is fish tacos — I bake tilapia or red snapper with some cumin, chili powder and cayenne (I like it spicy!), and eat the fish in a small corn tortilla with shredded cabbage and a little bit of crema with green onions, cilantro and lime mixed in. YUM!

  912. astrid says:

    My favorite healthy dish to make is the Test Kitchen’s low-fat chocolate chip cookies. They were in a magazine a while back, and included chopped dates. Sounds weird, but they come out really yummy!

  913. Peggasus says:

  914. Sonya says:

    Those fajitas look yummy! can’t wait to try them

    My favorite healthy dish to make is black bean burgers surved on a bed of leafy greens, yum!

  921. Jenni says:

    Sweet and spicy turkey meatloaf loaded with veggies, YUM!

  923. Lauren O. says:

    Eggplant lasagna with low fat cheese!

  924. Stephanie says:

    I make a honey curry chicken with edamame dish that my husband and I love! It’s simple, easy, and full of flavor.

  925. All my dishes are healthy! ;) But when I really want something light I’ll usually go for a veggie soup or simple stir fry. Can’t beat em!

  926. Amanda N says:

    Definitely just a simple tossed salad is my favorite healthy meal. Especially when I throw some grilled chicken in there too, yummy!

  927. Christine says:

    Thanks to you, Annie, a healthy recipe I make all the time is some variation of your herb-rubbed grilled chicken with creamy orzo. Seasoning a chicken breast with herbes de Provence and pan-frying is now my preferred method of cooking that protein!

  928. Emily Harding says:

    My favorite healthy recipe to make is spaghetti squash with marinara sauce. Sounds boring I know, but I love spaghetti and as a college student it works great!

  929. Michelle says:

    my favorite healthy dish is lentil soup- you can use up all the weeks leftover veggies.

  930. Michele K says:

    I love cooking! Right now, my family is on a smoothie kick. I love a great salad, though.

I also like Pioneer Woman’s super thin pizza with fig, procuitto and arugala, one of my new favorites to cook. Best of all when I make and eat the pizzas, NO GUILT.

    My favorite healthy recipe is black bean nachos. Ingredients: chips, refried black beans, cheese. It’s vegetarian. And it has calcium *and* protein. And I always feel so happy after I eat them so there must be some sort of endorphin-raising ingredient in them. Nachos are better than exercise.

    My favorite healthy dish is a lentil vegetable soup from Ina Garten. I never knew I liked lentils (or was really willing to give them a chance) until I made that soup.

  1126. Jennifer says:

    I love making all kinds of soup. Soup is an easy way to squeeze in a variety of different vegetables, it usually keeps very well in the fridge, and as recipes go it is very forgiving!

    Love your site Annie. It’s always one of the highlights of my day!

  1127. Chelsea says:

    We live in Southern CA and the weather is usually warm enough grill year round. I love grilled veggies (like zucchini and peppers) seasoned with balsamic vinegar served with grilled chicken. Yum!

  1144. Tanya says:

    Initially I was a little stumped thinking about my favorite healthy dish which is probably a sign I need to make more healthy dishes. And then it came to me – my favorite healthy dish is an edamame arugula soup. It’s simple and delicious. And I’m pretty sure it’s healthy. And if not – well then it’s just fun to say edamame.

  1145. Kristie says:

    Bee Bim Bop which is a combo of sauteed veggies, rice and any cooked protein (my fave is a fried egg). The sauce is a mixture of garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. This is a great dish to make using whatever veggies and protein you have on hand!

  1146. Lauren says:

    grilled salmon with a light dusting old bay and 1 tsp of brown sugar. the sugar melts, giving the salmon a delicious sweet and savory crust.

  1147. Kate Gallimore says:

    I have found it difficult to get tons of veggies in while being pregnant. Mostly just craving Cheetos and Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs (since they are out so early now)… but I have managed to make an outstanding – heart healthy – Minestrone soup with big chunky vegetables that makes me feel so good about growing a baby! Would love the opportunity to explore MORE healthy recipes :)

    Favorite healthy recipe is a tomato salad with onions and greens.

  1149. Jennie says:

    I love using the recipes in the book Sneaky Chef-because it’s a great way of getting extra veggies into our diet. I especially love putting sweet potatoes into mac and cheese.

  1150. Rachel says:

    I love to make burgers (chicken, turkey, or beef) from Whole Foods on my countertop grill. They come premade with lots of yummy ingredients in them so they don’t even need a bun or condiments. Just bought a beef one today with swiss and portobello mushroom!!!

  1151. Marilyn says:

    A Portobello Mushroom and Almond Pesto Lasagna sounds really weird, but its one of my favorite recipes.
