Cooking Healthy With a Man In Mind
JoAnna M. Lund with Barbara Alpert
Hardback 1997 G. P. Putnam's Sons Publisher
In this 338 page book you get to hear from JoAnna's husband Cliff since
he writes the introduction. The recipes included in this book not only
were approved by Cliff but many were tested by hundreds of visitors at
a taste-testing buffet. She has also included many of her sons
favorites as well.
If you want to cook healthy for the man or men in your life then the
recipes in this book are sure to please. My men are often reluctant to
try recipes if they think I'm trying to feed them healthy but they'll try
a JoAnna recipe anytime. When I first started cooking from her books my
son, Dexter would often say are you sure you can eat this on weight
watchers, it's too good to be good for you. A few years when I went out to
Calif to spend some time with hubby, Harold, who was working there, I copied some recipes from
this one to cook for him and he enjoyed them too.
The Blazing Glory Chili was a big hit at our house the first time we
tried it and we've made it many times since. We also enjoyed the Golden
Onion Pie and the Bar-B-Que Beef Strips are to die for. If you or
someone you know enjoys sloppy Joes then you should try Healthy Jo's as they
are very good.
There are many more tasty, man pleasing, healthy recipes included in
this book and all of them are approved by JoAnna's truck driving husband
Cliff. As with her other books nutritional values are included for all
I used these recipes on my husband and father (who has a heart condition) without telling them they were "healthy" meals. Both loved them all and since they are both big guys I had enough food to go around.
