beHealthy Cookbook contains seafood and chicken dishes and is great for anyone looking for creative ways to work more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes into their diet. Annie utilizes spices, herbs, and cooking techniques to enhance flavor. The focus is on creating appetizing dishes that are prepared with the minimum of fuss by using few ingredients that can be easily found in grocery stores that specialize in nutrient rich ingredients, for example, soy beans and quinoa. Despite the relative simplicity of these healthy dishes, they are still elegant enough to be served at dinner parties, especially the Crab Croquettes with Spicy Salsa, Grilled Chicken & Veggie Kebabs and Wasabi Crusted Salmon. Watts’ vegetable dishes are appealing and varied, including Salad with Raspberry Dressing, Cucumber and Dill Salad and Vegetable Rolls & Peanut Sauce. Watts’ desserts are equally appetizing, with Pumpkin Creme Brulees, Wild Berry Double Cream Crepes and Apricot Oat Cookies.
