Here's a few of the types of recipes included in The New American Plate Cookbook:

yellow bullet 30 Vegetable Recipes - Whether oven-roasted, steamed, stir-fried or pureed, these novel pairings of textures and tastes will help you add more veggies and excitement to your plate. Sample Recipe: Tricolored Peppers with Fresh Herbs

17 Grain Recipes - These recipes emphasize the delicious flavor of whole grains with their range of health benefits. Cooked with sliced vegetables, bits of fresh and dried fruit, or chopped nuts, brown rice, kasha, or bulgur never tasted so rich.

yellow bullet 15 Fish, Poultry and Meat Recipes - There's room left on the New American Plate for meats. These recipes keep the taste, reduce the fat and introduce marinades, salsas, fruit sauces and purees to add levels of flavor and some health benefits. Sample Recipes: Greek Style Scallops and Chili Burgers

yellow bullet 40 One-Pot Meals - These casseroles, stir-fires, stews and dinner salad contain within themselves the healthy 2/3 to 1/3 proportions. They subtly increase the amount of plant foods you're eating while maintaining that hearty meat flavor. Sample Recipes: Sweet Potato and Pear Stir-fry with Chicken and Chile Sauce and Layered Black Bean and Spinach Salad

yellow bullet 16 Dessert Recipes - Most of these recipes capitalize on the natural sweetness of fruits. These cobblers, crisps, tarts, pies and cakes seem so indulgent, but deliver a load of vitamins and phytochemicals. Sample Recipe: Plum Tart
