Classic Southern Recipes Made Healthy and Wholesome

This book speaks to my southern roots. I’m thrilled that voice is in a lighter tone, since these days that’s the way I need to eat. I loved Virginia Willis’ first two cookbooks, and this one is fast becoming a favorite as well. It’s a bonus that the recipes are not only lightened up but delicious. I agree with Virginia when she says “the keys to healthier eating are balance and moderation, not denial”
I love that basic nutritional information is included. The only part I miss though is the sodium count. Recipes included in the book are from starters to main dishes and everything in between. Since most southerners have a bit of a sweet tooth – sweet indulgences are also included.
I made the Pulled Pork Tenderloin with Red Pepper Vinegar Sauce and the Sassy Slaw for supper tonight. They were both delicious. I tried serving it on wheat bread for myself and buns for my husband and son but I put a little too much sauce on it and ended up eating mine in a bowl with the slaw and found it was delicious like that.
I have many more recipes marked to try and tomorrow night is chicken on a stick.
