After reading our post “Cooking with butter. Lots of it” a concerned reader wrote us the following e-mail:
“Be sure to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and not too much
deep fried stuff, butter or cheese. Every mouthful counts. Be sure
you exercise every day if possible.”
First of all, I would like to reassure my mom, er, this reader, that we here at Cooking the Books eat only small samples of the buttery recipes prepared, exercise at least five times a week and have recently added flax seed to our diet. Yet this reader’s response raises a good point: how can we do a better job incorporating fruits and vegetables into our diet, while eliminating evil saturated fats?
In the next edition of Cooking the Books, we will review a hot new cookbook that offers innovative ways to eat vegetables. Tomorrow, a panel of experts will sample recipes at the Thanksgiving table. Surprise is a key element to these tastings, so I won’t reveal the cookbook right now, in case any members of the panel are reading this blog. (And considering how 90% of this blog’s comments come from reader CK, that seems quite likely.) Stay tuned!
