In Canada, healthy eating has been an ongoing journey of adventure and discovery for many years. Dietitians are health professionals who help Canadians to enjoy a healthy lifestyle based on nutrition. They play a major role in health care, industry, government and education, influencing the development and promotion of consumer products and managing quality food service operations. They also provide information and advice to help decision makers, including consumers, make informed judgements about food choices and nutrition services.

One of the most successful endeavors undertaken by Dietitians of Canada was the production of three cookbooks that feature healthy eating, by providing an abundance of tasty family-oriented recipes to suit every occasion. The first book of the series, Eat Well, Live Well, was published in 1990, and Healthy Pleasures, a unique collaboration between dietitians and chefs, followed in 1995. The current cycle was completed in 2000 with the publication of Great Food Fast, which focused on meeting the demands of today's time-starved families. Cook Great Food combines the best recipes from all three books in one convenient volume.

In Cook Great Food, you will find more than 450 mouthwatering recipes to suit every aspect of your lifestyle. More than a cornucopia of delicious recipes, Cook Great Food provides a wealth of information on nutrition. Each recipe is accompanied by a nutritional analysis outlining the calories, protein, fat, carbohydrate and dietary fiber in each serving. Useful tips, techniques and menu suggestions prepared by professional dietitians also appear alongside the recipes. On every page of Cook Great Food, a dietitian is with you, helping you to make informed choices about food to support a pattern of healthy living.

Everyone knows that good nutrition is a key component of good health. The problem is that people differ in their definitions of good nutrition. In Cook Great Food, you'll find some of the answers to the many questions about nutrition and health that dietitians are often asked. The introduction, written by practicing dietitians, provides an overview of current nutritional information, based on the latest research. Since the publication of Eat Well, Live Well, by Margaret Howard and Helen Bishop Macdonald, much new research into nutrition has been conducted, but the fundamental message remains the same: consult the advice provided by Canada's Guidelines for Healthy Eating and Canada's Food Guide to Healthy Eating. Also bear in mind these fundamentals: enjoyment, variety, balance and moderation. To learn more about healthy eating, visit the Web sites we've noted.

Cook Great Food is the perfect cookbook for the everyday cook, the once-in-a-while cook and anyone interested in great-tasting food and healthy eating. It will also serve as a, great reference for those interested in learning more about nutrition. Dietitians of Canada hopes that you enjoy this book and that the recipes will help you to "cook great food" every day of the week.
