Background Information

Registered dietitian Brenda J. Ponichtera, is the author of two award-winning cookbooks. The books, Quick & Healthy Recipes and Ideas and Quick & Healthy Volume II, are proof of her philosophy that "healthful eating doesn't have to take a lot of time in the kitchen."

The books – which have now sold more than 700,000 copies – clearly fill a need for today's health-conscious, busy cook.

A registered dietitian, Ponichtera has extensive experience in nutrition and diabetes counseling. She is an active member of the American Dietetic Association and the American Diabetes Association. Brenda is the past Resource and Recognition Director for the Nutrition Entrepreneurs Dietetic Practice Group. A graduate of Framingham State College, in Massachusetts, she majored in Foods and Nutrition, and received a Bachelor of Science in Education. She completed a dietetic internship in Seattle, Washington at Harborview Medical Center, Swedish Hospital, and Children's Orthopedic Hospital. As a medical professional and teacher, Brenda has specialized in helping people develop healthful, lifelong eating habits.

Ponichtera and her husband, Ken, live in The Dalles, Oregon. Their two sons, Kevin and Kyle, reside in Maui where they are pursuing a career in windsurfing.

Additional Information

Quick & Healthy Recipes and Ideas was written at the request of her clients who wanted healthy recipes that would be quick to prepare and enjoyed by the whole family. Quick & Healthy Volume II was written because she received so many requests for more low-fat recipes that taste good. Both books include the diabetes exchange for each recipe along with grams of fat, carbohydrates, calories and other nutrition information. Additionally there are suggested menus with corresponding grocery lists, and practical nutrition tips. "Delicious, fun recipes." "Smart ideas." "Something for everyone." "Lives up to its name." "A life-saver for real-world cooks." "Highly recommended." "A must." These are just a few of the reasons reviewers, health professionals, and busy cooks everywhere use these books and recommend them to friends and colleagues.
