Sheryl Crow to Release Healthy Cookbook in 2011

Sheryl Crow’s Cookbook If It Makes You Healthy released March 29, 2011.

From Real Housewives to comediennes to daytime talk show hosts, it seems like everyone who has had fifteen minutes in the limelight had written a cookbook. As someone with several shelves full of guides to bread baking, cheese making and more, I’m pleased that the next book to join the ranks is from rocker Sheryl Crow.

“It’s called, If It Makes You Healthy, which is sort of a take on [my song] ‘If It Makes You Happy,’” Crow explained Rachael Ray in December 2010. The book, which is a compilation of Crow’s favorite nutritious recipes, will hit stores in March 2011.

Why is a hit singer/songwriter stepping off the stage and into the kitchen? Since her breast cancer diagnosis five years ago, Crow has become interested in cooking. Specifically, she enjoys cooking healthy recipes that help boost immunity.

Rachael Ray and the Flat Belly Diet

Flat Belly DietThe Flat Belly Diet is centered around fat, but not just the kind around your waistline. It’s a book and eating philosophy put together by Liz Vaccariello and nutritionist Cynthia Sass of Prevention magazine. The plan centers around MUFAs (Monounsaturated Fatty Acids). Monounsaturated fat is liquid at room temperature, but may solidify in your refrigerator. They help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood and lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.

There is no shortage of eating with the Flat Belly Diet, as you are recommended to have four 400 calorie meals, all with a MUFA source. So what foods are rich in monounsaturated fatty acid? Foods high in MUFA include nuts, avocados, dark chocolate, sunflower oil, canola oil and Rachael Ray’s favorite- olive oil.
