Summary

RENOWNED VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK AUTHOR Deborah Madison set out to learn what people chew on when there isn't anyone else around. The responses are surprising-and we aren't just talking take-out or leftovers. This is food-gone-wild in its most elemental form. 
In a conversational tone, What We Eat When We Eat Alone explores the joys and sorrows of eating solo and gives a glimpse into the lives of everyday people and their relationships with food. 
The book is illustrated with the delightful art of Patrick McFarlin, and each chapter ends with recipes for those who dine alone.
Available since: 05/01/2009.
Print length: 256 pages.

    Remember how simple school lunches used to be? You'd have something from every major food group, run around the playground for a while, and you looked and felt fine. But today it's not so simple. Schools are actually feeding the American crisis of childhood obesity and malnutrition. Most cafeterias serve a veritable buffet of processed, fried, and sugary foods, and although many schools have attempted to improve, they are still not measuring up: 78 percent of the school lunch programs in America do not meet the USDA's nutritional guidelines.Chef Ann Cooper has emerged as one of the nation's most influential and most respected advocates for changing how our kids eat. In fact, she is something of a renegade lunch lady, minus the hairnet and scooper of mashed potatoes. Ann has worked to transform cafeterias into culinary classrooms. In Lunch Lessons, she and Lisa Holmes spell out how parents and school employees can help instill healthy habits in children.They explain the basics of good childhood nutrition and suggest dozens of tasty, home-tested recipes for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. The pages are also packed with recommendations on how to eliminate potential hazards from the home, bring gardening and composting into daily life, and how to support businesses that provide local, organic food.Yet learning about nutrition and changing the way you run your home will not cure the plague of obesity and poor health for this generation of children. Only parental activism can spark widespread change. With inspirational examples and analysis, Lunch Lessons is more than just a recipe book&#8212it gives readers the tools to transform the way children everywhere interact with food.

    “This book has outstanding solutions for quick meals, on-the-go meals, and ways to make things ahead of time. . . . Kids will love what you make too!” —San Diego Book Review   Make your own affordable, delicious, and allergy-free staples, snacks, and meals! After the cupboards are cleared of problem foods, most people coping with new food allergies (their own or their kids’) are missing staples they have relied on for years. And even though stores are stocking more allergen-free brands, shoppers with severe or multiple allergies can read every label and still strike out—especially if they’re after a particular craving or on a budget. The good news for the fifteen million Americans with food allergies is that classic treats and pantry staples can be made easily and affordably at home.   From Colette Martin, the author of Learning to Bake Allergen-Free, comes The Allergy-Free Pantry—with over one hundred recipes free of gluten and the top eight allergens (milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish), for:    ·Basic staples (flour blends, non-dairy milks, egg replacers, Sandwich Bread, Biscuits, Strawberry Jam, Sunflower Seed Butter)    ·Condiments and salad dressings (Flaxseed Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Ranch Dressing, Barbeque Sauce)    ·Breakfast (Pancakes, Honey Blueberry Granola, Apple Oatmeal Scones)    ·Crackers and cookies (Flax Crackers, Pita Chips, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Snickerdoodles)    ·Pasta, pizza, and freezer meals (Spinach Pasta, Cheesy Sauce, Shepherd’s Pie, Meatloaf)  ·Desserts (Brownie Bites, Chocolate Pudding, Raspberry Fruit Roll Ups, Caramel Sauce)   Full-color photographs and simple instructions make this a must-have guide to allergy-free home cooking.    “A solid resource for anyone who cooks for people with food allergies.” —Library Journal
