We just don’t give you get a bunch of recipes. Recipes tell what to do, they don’t tell you how to do it. And they only tell you how to make a single dish.

You will learn the bedrock healthy cooking skills you can apply to any recipe you cook, for the rest of your life. And do it from the comfort of home.

    • Keep the juice inside the meat where you want it – not running out on the plate.
    • Combine flavors like a pro to make a dish taste heavenly
    • Find out what flavor a meal is missing — sweet? salty? sour?
    • Sear meat like a professional chef – in your own kitchen, with everyday pans and utensils
    • Choose the best meats for moist cooking – Hint: this will also save you money at the grocery store
    • Prevent food poisoning by using the safest method to thaw and cook any food
    • Cut down prep time (without cutting your fingers) with easy to learn knife skills

The Healthy Cooking Essentials program includes the following topics:

Lesson 1

Healthy pantry See how helpful and economical it can be to dress your kitchen for success.


Learn to play with your KCards This novel approach to flavor combinations comes in the form of playing cards. What you learn will transform your easy recipes into flavorful delights.


The art of seasoning and science of taste Playing with flavor inspires a new level of freedom in the kitchen. From quick and easy recipes to a lamb cassoulet, taste, smell, touch and even sight affect the way we determine flavor!

lesson 2-crop
Food safety ensures more food fun Clean, separate, cook and chill, healthy eating begins when we ensure food safety in the kitchen. Protecting food quality is all about good science and good sense.


lesson 7 sear
The truth about pan searing: Let go of the fear of cooking with very hot pans. This high heat cooking method produces a delectable crust that adds tons of flavor and color and a wealth of new meal ideas.


Braise and stew like a pro:  These slow, simmering cooking methods develop mouth-watering results with fish, tough cuts of meat and more. It’s all about cooking time, great taste and easy food preparation.


Sauté with confidence:  A high heat method of cooking, sauté lets you prepare light, savory meals with ease. A steel pan captures the flavor bits, and inexpensive oil does the trick. And you keep all the nutrients. /


Steam with style: Steaming two ways, stove top and oven, turns healthy food choices, from broccoli to free range chicken, into a delectable, wholesome meal. It’s also a quick and easy technique to learn.


Sweating without the gym: A cousin of sautéing, the technique of sweating softens veggies without browning them. One more flavor- brightening tool to add to your “Inspired Cook “apron pocket.


Blanch and Shock: It’s a bit like a sauna for veggies. Submerge into hot, plunge into ice water and shock the socks off it or, in reality, stop the cooking process. Blanching also softens and adds vibrant color.


Poaching with panache: Healthy recipes sparkle when poached. Best foods to poach include fish, boneless chicken, eggs and fruits. Four simple steps and voila! You’ve mastered another great technique.


Caramelize with flair: You could call it a magical technique that turns savory to sweet. It happens to sugars when they’re slowly heated up, and it can turn a sharp edged onion into a mild and sweet sensation.


Lesson 13:  Knife skills for one and all: Your gripping techniques make you a more efficient cook while ensuring that you keep all your fingers in the process.


Knife skills for the onion lover: Cut an onion cry little. That’s because this technique will get you safely and quickly through the process before you can run for the tissue box.


Knife skills for the chicken devotee: We do love our chicken, so why not practice a safe, efficient knife technique that will save us a few bucks at the market.


Lesson 16: Time for practice : The eBook gives you access to 25 chef-crafted and cook-tested recipes to let you practice the skills you are mastering. You can download just one or all three formats to maximize your browsing flexibility on any tablet, eReader or computer screen.
