My husband is starting on a weight loss program, trying to lose the excess weight so he can reduce his risk of diabetes and heart disease. Reducing his diabetes risk will also reduce his chances of getting Alzheimer's disease, in two ways -- having diabetes increases your Alzheimer's risk, and exercising and eating healthy foods decreases your chance of contracting Alzheimer's disease or delays it. Steve's Dad had diabetes and heart disease, and his mother has Alzheimer's disease.
I also have a daughter who has been working over the past 7 months to get in shape. I should probably join them both on this journey. All of our family would benefit from healthier eating habits and more exercise. But that's where I find my struggle ... cooking healthy for a family of ten, including several picky children.
My dream cookbook would have healthy recipes that don't take hours to prepare, have normal easily found ingredients, are affordable, and will tempt my picky eaters. Does that exist? Is there a large-family, kid-friendly, healthy cookbook out there? Or a website that meets those parameters?
Do you have a favorite cookbook or website that even meets some of those conditions? Please share!
