Che 30-Minute
Solution

In a new
cookbook, Ellie
Krieger offers
fast, easy and
healthy recipes
for quick meals.

Suzanne Chessler
Contributing Writer

E

llie Krieger recalls a recent
aha moment in planning
dinner for her family of

three.
It happened shortly after turning
in the manuscript for her latest cook-
book, Weeknight Wonders: Delicious
Healthy Dinners in 30 Minutes or Less
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; $29.99).
In the midst of a busy day that
would include getting her daughter to
an early evening meet-up, she had to
decide on a meal that would be quick
to prepare.
"I said to myself, 'Wait a second; I
have 150 recipes I know for sure will
not take me more than a half-hour and
will be delicious and healthy:" Krieger
explains in a phone conversation from
her New York home. "The book is full
of solutions for me personally and can
make life easier [for others]:'
When recommending fast fixes for
dinner (including side dishes and des-
serts) — with recipes ranging from
"Steak Fajitas" and "Provencal Chicken
and White Bean Stew" to "Ravioli with
Savory Pumpkin Sauce" and "Amaretti-
Peach Parfait" — Krieger has factored
in prep time, from cutting to preheat-
ing ingredients, so that each final dish
meets the established time constraint.
"In general, I'm a nutritionist and
a chef, and I feel people perceive deli-
cious and healthy as two separate
worlds:' Krieger says. "I want to find
the sweet spot where delicious and
healthy meet.
"Throughout my books, I'm saying
taste comes first — the sensual, won-
derful factor of food that gets us on
that gut level — but tasty food also can
be healthy. Each book gets there in a
different way, and this one is all about
the time:'
Earlier books include Comfort Food
Fix: Feel Good Favorites Made Healthy;
So Easy: Luscious Healthy Recipes for
Every Meal of the Week; The Food You

Healthy Balanced Life Full of Flavor.
In Krieger's own life, taste consider-
ations came way before fitness plan-
ning.
"I was an overweight child:' says
Krieger, 48, wife of environmental
educator Thom Schuchaskie and
mother of Isabella, 11. "I wound up
shedding weight in my teens by eating
better and focusing on nutrition.
"That inspired me to study nutrition
as an undergraduate student at Cornell
University, and I went on to get my
master's in nutrition education with
a minor in journalism at Columbia
University.
"I realized I wanted to write and
communicate this all through the
media, and that's what I'm doing with
my TV show, books and magazine
articles:'
Krieger, who put herself through
school doing modeling and TV com-
mercials, completed internships at
CNN and CBS, pitched herself to
producers as a guest and was invited
to launch the syndicated show Living
Better with Ellie Krieger.
Her Food Network show, Healthy
Appetite, came next, and that has
moved to the Cooking Channel.
The books developed as she was
gaining attention on television.
With time as the overall theme for
Weeknight Wonders, Krieger explains
how she changed the standard recipe
format for her latest text.
Instead of saying "one onion,
chopped" as part of an ingredients list,
for example, a recipe list might simply
