"Krieger, a registered dietician, and host of the Food Network’s Healthy Appetite, maintains that “there is no need to deprive yourself or go to extremes to be healthy… balance is the key.” She suggests time-saving shortcuts, like using prewashed greens or canned or frozen foods, but avoids highly processed ingredients and artificial additives, and focuses on common and easy-to-find ingredients…Krieger delivers on her promise—the recipes are fast and fresh."
