ellies real good food

Hosted by chef, nutritionist, and New York Times best-selling author Ellie Krieger, "Ellie's Real Good Food" is designed to help real people get the most out of life by cooking in the "sweet spot," the convergence where delicious and healthy meet. The 13-part cooking series offers solutions for every meal of the week, with healthy, time-saving strategies for menu planning, food shopping and cooking. Viewers see these strategies in action as Ellie and her team visit individuals and families to solve specific food challenges - whether at home or in the workplace - and offering delicious recipes and practical tips along the way. Ellie also discusses the concept of volumetrics, the method of incorporating low calorie, high volume ingredients into recipes to make them more filling. Ellie is a James Beard cookbook award winner and a contributing editor and columnist with both Fine Cooking and the Food Network magazines. She has appeared as a guest expert on dozens of national television programs, including "The Today Show," "Good Morning America," "The CBS Early Show," CNN, "ABC News Now "and "Dr. Oz," as well as hosted The Food Network's hit series "Healthy Appetite."
