Reviewers Comments: The recipes prepared are all easy, healthy, and low cost. The ingredients and instructions are shown quickly at the beginning of the recipe preparation, and the nutritional information is shown at the end. On the menu screen, there is an option where you can go back and view the recipes and nutritional information only (without preparation) for longer, or you can view the recipes and print them from the Web site online. The demonstrator explains and defines important cooking concepts and terms. The nutritionist explains the nutritional importance of the ingredients being used.
