Yes, it can be done. In fact, it’s really not that hard. The Culinary Institute of America offers  a video series called The Everyday Gourmet: Making Healthy Food Taste Great. I have to admit, I find this particular video lecture series less engaging than the others in the series. However, I do like that Chef Briwa presents good, better and best ways to prepare healthy foods, which is a lot more realistic than always expecting me to take the high road or spend a lot of time prepping and cooking a meal! In this six, thirty minute video series, Chef Bill Briwa and Professor Connie Guttersen, R.D., Ph.D . introduce us to:

Good, better, best

Nutritious and satisfying whole grains

Adding flavor with healthy oils

Protein—understanding your choices

Powerful micronutrients—cooking with color

Making healthy cooking a lifestyle

Again, this series can be purchased through Amazon or The Great Courses, or rented from various libraries. By the way, Dr. Guttersen earned her Ph.D. in Nutritional Physiology from Texas Woman’s University.
