Americans are eating out less and, more and more oft en, their food decisions are being driven by two main things: budget and health. EatingWell marries these two trends in the new cookbook EatingWell on a Budget. It shows you how to make nutritious dinners that everyone in the family will love and get them on the table quickly without spending more—in most instances—than $3 a person. We cost out the ingredients, tell readers how to get the most nutrition bang for their buck, and even show them where to splurge and where to save.A trademark of all EatingWell recipes and cookbooks: We don’t believe in sacrificing taste, so the recipes in this book include foods like shrimp and steak but, because we use them judiciously, they are affordable. Introductory sections look at the basics of healthy cooking on a budget and offer lots of tips and advice on menu planning, stocking your pantry, and nutrition basics. There are also great suggestions for how you can save and reuse left overs, preserve foods, and use one ingredient in multiple fresh new recipes.
Who says it has to cost more to eat well?

"Eating Well on a Budget begins with a list of tips that is worth the price of the book all by itself, entitled `40 Ways to Save Money, Your Waistline and Your Health.' It breaks down the process, from getting organized to shopping smart. The book goes on to lay out 140 recipes, most of them quick and easy, all of them mindful of calories, cost, nutrition and flavor. Keep this handy volume at your side, and you'll not only be eating well on a budget, you'll be thinking well and living well."---Sara Moulton, Food Editor, ABC-TV's Good Morning America; author, Sara Moulton's Everyday Family Dinners

To put this book to the rest we devised an experiment: our Test Kitchen team shopped for and cooked a week's worth of regular Eating Well dinners and a week's worth of recipes from this book. We saved $52.35 for one week of dinners. Over a year, that works out to $2.772.20 in savings. And it was easy; all we had to do was follow the simple, delicious recipes we selected for this cookbook, Here are just some of the ways we help you save
