“Quick Start Recipes For Healthy Meals is written by Gretchen Scalpi. This is an insightful book, which introduces a consumer to a healthier and less expensive way of preparing and eating foods. People in general are often drawn to a meal that is quick and easy, thus leading them to consume take out or restaurant prepared foods. The author, being a Registered Dietitian & Certified Diabetes Educator, teaches the reader the importance of healthy eating.

Eating right and consuming fewer fats and calories can establish a healthy weight loss routine or a weight stabilization plan. Take out foods or restaurant prepared foods are often very high in fat content which provides more calories than needed for a person to consume. Within the pages of the book, the author gives tips and full descriptive recipes for healthy, low calorie and tasty foods.

Quick Start Recipes for Healthy Meals provides the consumer with an interesting selection of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even dessert-snack recipes. These recipes include most of the food pyramid: dairy, vegetables, fruits, poultry, red meat, fish, and even some low fat content sweets. Two of the most intriguing aspects of the book is that the author provides a complete nutrition facts chart with each recipe along with the ingredients needed to exchange with others to make the meal diabetic friendly.”
