Paula Dean & Bobby Flay Cookbooks Among the Worst of Decade (For Your Health)

From Health & Fitness Blog, By Amber Smith/The Post-Standard: If you’re trying to eat healthy, which cookbooks should you avoid? The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine says many cookbooks from this decade encourage fattening, meat-heavy meals at a time when America grapples with record obesity rates. “You’d need a magnifying glass to find a vegetable in some of these cookbooks, says the organization’s dietitian, Susan Levin. “The good news is that a growing number of chefs are offering tasty meatless recipes that can help us stay trim and healthy.”
