Will eating meals using recipes from the show Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger ONLY keep me healthy?

Question by newmommie: Will eating meals using recipes from the show Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger ONLY keep me healthy?
I’ve been trying some of Ellie Krieger’s recipes and they all taste really good, but are all the recipes from her show really healthy for you? I’m not concerend about losing weight at all. I got sick a few years ago to the point I had to have surgery and have had digestive issues since, so I’m really concerned about what I eat now. I’m trying to make a lifetime meal plan (meaning breakfast, lunch, dinner & a snack) based on pure healthy recipes & since Ellie Krieger is a nutritionist, I would think her recipes would be some of the healthiest out there, so I’m planning on making my meals using ONLY her recipes. I’ve never been overweight so that’s not my concern at all in choosing recipes, I just want recipes that are supposed to be really healthy for me & that will keep me from getting sick or getting any diseases such as heart disease, diabetes or cancer later on. I’m especially looking for recipes that will help with my digestive issues. Am I on the right track using her recipes?
I know exercise will help too, but the reason I wrote ‘ONLY’ in my question above, is that I meant that the only foods / meals I plan on eating for a while are meals prepared using Ellie Krieger’s recipes. I don’t mean that all I plan to do is eat healthy food to stay healthy, I also plan on still exercising and of course avoiding things that I know are bad for you like cigarettes, alcohol etc. Also, trying to keep my stress levels down becuz I’ve heard stress can cause you to become sick and stay sick. But like I mentioned before, I plan on eating only foods / meals that are made using Ellie’s recipes as one of the steps to keep myself healthy. I’m trying to make sure I ONLY eat foods / meals that are good for me and will help me stay healthy.

Article Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/ – Reviews of Gordon Ramsays Healthy Appetite Cookbook





Here is what reviewers from both the US and UK Amazon sites had to say about Gordon Ramsay\’s Healthy Appetite. This 2008 book has received overwhlemingly positive reviews, with most scoring it a four of five out of a possible five in both the United States and the United Kingdom.

If you love a full English breakfast, this is still the book for you……but if a Herb Omelette with Cherry Tomatoes is more you…….the good news is…..that is here, too. Based on that, I think, it would be fair to say that \’Healthy Appetite – Recipes from the f Word\’ is unlikely to disappoint many!

\’After all, a big part of living a good life is the enjoyment of food\’ …. and you can\’t say fairer than that! Gordon isn\’t the first and he won\’t be the last to quote:- \’What you are is what you eat\’ or words to that effect…

From the introduction:- `Healthy eating is a topic close to my heart. I\’ve been passionate about leaving a healthy lifestyle for many years now…

Now let me clarify: this is not a diet book. Those who know me know that I don\’t believe in faddy diets. I do, however, believe that I can prepare and serve healthy food without jeopardising taste and flavour, or drastically changing my style of cooking. Whether it\’s an elegant dinner party or a simple mid-week supper, a few simple adjustments are all that\’s needed to make our favourite meals that bit more balanced…lower in fat and calories yet rich in energy-giving nutrients.

Choosing the right ingredients is the core of healthy eating. It\’s not just a matter of selecting the leanest cuts of meat and reducing the amount of fat we consume, it helps to know which ingredients are at their peak at any given time, both in terms of flavour and nutrition.

When it comes to putting a healthy dish together, balance and moderation are key. It\’s not simply a matter of putting the right types of food on a plate. How the food is cooked and seasoned and how the whole menu comes together are just as important. And I don\’t advocate cutting out butter and cream completely, just using a little here and there where it will really enhance the flavour of a dish….\’

An eye-catching book in its own right, with bright lime green covers and white titling…..(see above image – if you would rather not have GR peeking out over the top of his leafy greens on the dust-jacket)…..opens to 256 high quality matt pages split over 9 chapters:-

Healthy breakfast

Healthy brunch/lunch

Healthy working lunch

Healthy Sunday lunch

Healthy barbecues

Healthy suppers

Healthy kids

Healthy entertaining

Healthy desserts

Plus an introduction, which includes a `Healthy Cooking Techniques\’ section, a `Healthy Basics\’ section, finishing with a concise index and a page of acknowledgments.

Over 125 recipes laid out in the familiar GR format as seen in his other best sellers, `Fast Food\’ and `Sunday Lunch\’, where this book follows on from. The useful `5 ways with\’ sections are here, e.g. :- \’Oats\’, \’Tomatoes\’ along with useful information sections, e.g.:- \’Omega-3 boost\’, \’Avoid the bad fats\’ and \’Getting the right balance\’.

Each recipe is clearly laid out with the title, the number of servings, a list of ingredients and the clearly presented method. The majority have a photograph(s) and more often than not a useful note or two, e.g.:- \’Melon and Berry Salad\’, \’Rich in Vitamin C to boost your immunity\’.

There are a number of `on location\’ shots, also.

A taste of the other recipes within:-

Berry and yoghurt smoothie

Seeded honey loaf

Cod and tomato chowder

Smoked trout, orange and wild rocket salad

Spinach and goat\’s cheese soufflé

Spaghetti vongole

Borscht

Mango, avocado and smoked chicken salad

Roast chicken with baby vegetables

Sticky baked chicken drumsticks

Spicy beef curry

Venison pie with sweet potato topping

Glazed gammon with pineapple salsa

Lamb kebabs with peppers and tomatoes

Four cabbage coleslaw

Glazed ling with sweet `n\’ sour shallots

Steamed prawns with black bean sauce

Vietnamese beef and noodle soup

Braised pork with leeks and pak choi

Calves liver with caramelised onions

Penne primavera

Lunchbox dips and dunkers

Stir-fried duck in lettuce cups

Mixed fish sashimi

Pot-roast sirloin of beef with root vegetables

Vanilla pannacotta with blueberry sauce

Spiced apple cake

Pavlova with roasted rhubarb fool

Poached pears in mulled wine

Lime mousse

Chocolate mousse – `a lighter version of my cook-along recipe\’

My only criticism is that I do miss the quick reference recipe list at the front, but this is just habit from my very regular use of Gordon Ramsay\’s Fast Food: Recipes from “The F Word”!

Another reviewer wrote Healthy doesn\’t always mean diet!,

Gordon Ramsy\’s healthy Appetite is a must have for those who want great tasting food without all the calories and fat. It seems some have been put off by the fact that this is not a diet book. No one ever said it was. Rather, it is a healthy approach to eating without blowing your entire way of living out of the water. What Ramsay wants to make clear (I believe) is that there are several factors involved in healthy eating: proportion, moderation, seasoning, and the right combination of foods, just to name a few.

Highlights for me include the “Four Cabbage Coleslaw,” the “Penne Primavera,” and the “Pot roast sirloin of beef.” Other may warm to the “Glazed Gammon with pineapple Salsa,” which I haven\’t tried yet but will soon.

While the recipes are the main thing, there\’s also chapters on the “bad” fats and getting the right balance of things on the plate. Overall a great cookbook, on the same par for me as Delia\’s How to Cheat and The Kitchen Diaries. Anyway you slice it, Ramsay has it going on, hands down!

Another Customer told that this was his favoyr GR cookbook, I have quite a few Gordon Ramsey books and I consider myself to be a more than competent cook at home. Modest I know. I like to cook for people and I have a strong interest (some would say obsesession bordering on fetish) in food, where foods comes from, breeds, varieties, seasons etc. However, I do find that a lot of cook books out on the market, particularly from chefs yet alone Michellin starred chefs go too far. They seek to give tangible copies of the fantasy of their restaurants in your home, initially in hard back.

This is the first of his books that I have found myself using almost daily. I have a girlfriend who is on WeightWatchers at the moment and if any of you are going through that experience of looking at ingredients, trying to manage your points, you don\’t believe that X ingredient can be tasty etc then this book is really an asset in order to see what combination work well and do not compromise taste. What I like about this book is that I think it really reflects that kind of things that I eat for myself anyway and it either provides a different way of making/presenting things or it just simply gives me new ideas.

Ramsey is very clear that this is not a diet book as discussed by another reviewer. It is not a diet book. Not at all. But it is a book to keep close to you when you have seen things in supermarkets and you\’re either not sure what they are or you would like to know what to do with them. I am not a baker but I have made so many of his muffin recommendations since I have bought the book much to the delight of my housemate and, again, said girlfriend.

I would highly recommend this book over many of his others if not for the fact that it is far more practical and

Anyone suffer with a low appetite most of their pregnancy, and have a perfectly healthy baby?

Question by Sandra-Daniella is 11months 🙂: Anyone suffer with a low appetite most of their pregnancy, and have a perfectly healthy baby?
I’m 32 weeks and have had a low appetite pretty much my whole pregnancy. I know I should not believe everything I read, but I just read an article that not eating enough during pregnancy is linked to retardation, especially during the last 3 months. This has really really scared me, did you have a low appetite and deliver a healthy baby? Thanks!!!

Gordon Ramsay\’s 12th cookbook is entitiled Healthy Appetite. It was release in 2008 and is published Key Porter Books in the USA and Quadrille Publishing Ltd in the UK. This 256 page book has a different cover in both regions, so don\’t be like me and order the book because it looks different!

This, as the title suggests is a great book and step back from standard European cooking where flavour is king and calories are forgotten! Healthy Appetite reflects Gordon Ramsay\’s lifestyle of ffuelling his marathon, double marathon and soon to be triathlon pursuits.

There is nine chapters focusing on Healthy Breakfasts, Healthy Brunches/Lunches (and seperate chapters on Healthy Working Lunches and Healthy Sunday Lunches), Healthy BBQs, Healthy Suppers, Meals for Healthy Kids as well as Healthy Entertaining and Healthy Desserts.

The official description is as follows; You are what you eat – and everyone wants to be healthy and look his or her best. A fit chef, marathon runner, and high-energy television presenter, Gordon Ramsay is a walking advertisement for eating well and staying in the peak of good health. In this new book, which includes recipes from The F Word, he has put together over 100 dishes that reflect the way we want to eat today. Geared around our daily lives, the book offers sensible, fun ideas and recipes for healthy breakfasts, lunches, barbecues, suppers, desserts, food for kids, and entertaining, and demonstrates how to cook for both health and flavor. Recipes include Mango and Smoked Chicken Salad, Griddle Squid with Roasted Peppers and Cannellini Beans, Wild Mushroom Risotto with Baked Courgettes, and Roasted Peaches with Vanilla and Spices. Featuring colorful photographs and clean modern design, this is a worthy follower to the successful Gordon Ramsay\’s Fast Food.

For those of you have have been living in a remote village with no television or media access, here is the official bio on the book\’s author!

GORDON RAMSAY is Britain’s most successful and most talked-about chef. His superb cooking has earned him two Michelin stars at his celebrated eponymous London restaurant in Chelsea.
