about this book

Everyone is looking for ways to fit wholesome, good-for-you meals into their busy lives. Healthy in a Hurry shows you how, by making the most of over 30 superfoods—from avocados to berries to whole grains—in delicious dishes made with fresh ingredients. Organized by course—including breakfast, starters and snacks, lunch, dinner, sides, and dessert—the recipes are packed with nutrients and most are simple enough to prepare in under 30 minutes. Loaded with useful tips and strategies for healthy eating and friendly advice on shopping, prepping in advance, and cooking smarter, this book provides real solutions for creating balanced meals on a busy schedule.

"I've discovered that there are just two important tricks to getting delicious, healthy meals on the table. The first is choosing lots of fresh, unprocessed foods, and the second is having a foolproof plan to get you in and out of the kitchen quickly. This book delivers on both."—Karen Ansel
