The information section of this cookbook contains includes is basic cooking information. Information on altering recipes for elevation is also included. This section also contains tips to help users plan meals on a budget and alter recipes for health according to nutrient needs and the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate. However, it should be noted that some information provided in the cookbook is inconsistent with current guidelines. For example, the cooking temperature for pork is listed as 155°F (see p.101), while the most up-to-date guidelines from USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service recommend cooking pork to 145°F (except for ground pork, which should be cooked to 160°F as indicated in the cookbook). Additionally, the calcium intake/milk equivalent recommendations found on page 67 are inconsistent with those found on the MyPlate Web site.
The remaining sections of the cookbook contain over 150 recipes. Each separate recipe section includes additional information at the beginning that gives more cooking and budgeting tips specific to food type. Many recipes include variations to give users different options based on one recipe. Many of the recipes found in Cooking for You or Two, Cent$ible Nutrition’s other cookbook, are scaled down versions of recipes in this cookbook.
