Welcome to The Svelte Gourmet!  My mission is to provide you with services, products, recipes, tips and tricks to help you create and enjoy healthy food.  I know you've heard it a million times -- consistent exercise and healthy eating has to be a lifestyle change in order to work.  Well guess what?  It's true.  But it's really not as bad as it sounds.

Most trainers and nutritionists will tell you what to eat and why.  What they often don't tell you is how to make healthy food taste great, how to create new and exciting meals every day of the week, and how to prepare nutritious food even your kids will love!  That's where I come in.

The Svelte Gourmet -- through our cookbooks, services and blog -- will help you get healthier, maintain your physique and still be able to eat delicious food everyday.  I'll show you how to turn those lean proteins, whole grains and leafy greens into culinary masterpieces! I must be onto something -- Fox News named The Svelte Gourmet one of the Best Health Blogs of 2010! 

Consider The Svelte Gourmet your "personal trainer in the kitchen."  I offer cookbooks, a variety of lessons, products and information that will give you the confidence and know-how to make healthy food interesting.  I believe that everyday should be a culinary adventure.  While not everyone likes to cook (yet!), we all have to eat.  And trust me, cooking tasty health food isn't as daunting as it may seem!  I'll teach you how to prepare healthy but flavorful meals that will impress your friends and nourish your family.  I'll show you how to add a ton of flavor without adding unnecessary fat and calories. 

Don't believe me?  Let me show you how!  Your kitchen or mine?
