Putting the foods you love back on the table We've revamped over 175 feel-good favorites (like creamy Macaroni and Cheese, Meat and Cheese Lasagna, and Fudgy Brownies) including 50 comfort-food restaurant favorites from the likes of The Cheesecake Factory (New York-Style Cheesecake), Olive Garden (Fettuccini Alfredo), Chili's (Nachos), and Au Bon Pain (Cinnamon Rolls) slashing thousands of calories and hundreds of grams of fat along the way. How did we do it? We put flavor first and used our test kitchen experience, smart ingredient substitutions (no fake fats or artificial sweeteners allowed), and innovative cooking techniques to make comfort food that you'll actually be comfortable eating. Comfort Food Makeovers isn't simply a collection of these tested and perfected recipes; it's an arsenal of fat and calorie-cutting strategies you can put to use. Use them to transform your own recipes into better tasting food that's better for you. We include a list of our key go-to ingredients that helped lighten or add flavor to the recipes in the book, as well as the essential equipment we found ourselves using again and again as we developed the recipes over time. Dramatic before and after counts for calories, grams of fat, and grams of saturated fat appear with each recipe, and full nutritional information for the recipes is provided at the back of the book.

Imagine what it would be like if you could eat all the foods you love—from General Tso’s Chicken and Buffalo Wings to Strawberry Cheesecake and Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. But instead of feeling bloated, heavy, and lethargic, you felt light, alive, and healthy. It sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?

This dream is, in fact, reality, and New York Times best-selling author Joy Bauer is here to prove it. In From Junk Food to Joy Food, Bauer lays out the secrets to transforming everyone’s favorite comfort foods into healthier versions of themselves—just like she does in her popular segment on the TODAY show. With a few simple tweaks, readers can create sumptuous dishes with the flavors and textures they crave but without the negative side effects. Instead of making them feel tired and weighed down, these foods will help readers lose weight, alleviate arthritis pain, boost energy, enhance heart health, normalize blood pressure, minimize wrinkles, and so much more. Packed with more than 100 recipes and stunning four-color before-and-after food photography, this book presents some of the most delicious (and typically fattening!) meals, snacks, desserts and drinks—but with a healthy twist.

So get set to gobble down Chicken Parmesan for dinner and top it off with Boston Cream Pie, and still drop two dress sizes in a few weeks. It’s all possible when you turn your favorite junk food into Joy food.
