Imagine what it would be like if you could eat all the comfort foods you love—from General Tso’s Chicken and Buffalo Wings to Strawberry Cheesecake and Chocolate Chip Ice Cream—but without the calories. But instead of feeling bloated, heavy, and lethargic, you felt light, alive, and healthy. It sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?

This dream is, in fact, reality, and New York Times best-selling author Joy Bauer is here to prove it. In From Junk Food to Joy Food, Bauer lays out the secrets to transforming everyone’s favorite comfort foods into healthier versions of themselves—just like she does in her popular segment on the TODAY show.

With a few simple tweaks, readers can create sumptuous, healthy comfort food dishes with the flavors and textures they crave but without the negative side effects. Instead of making them feel tired and weighed down, these foods will help readers lose weight, alleviate arthritis pain, boost energy, enhance heart health, normalize blood pressure, minimize wrinkles, and so much more. Packed with more than 100 recipes and stunning four-color before-and-after food photography, this recipe book presents some of the most delicious (and typically fattening!) meals, snacks, desserts and drinks—but with a healthy twist.

So get set to gobble down Chicken Parmesan for dinner and top it off with Boston Cream Pie, and still drop two dress sizes in a few weeks. It’s all possible when you turn your favorite junk food into Joy food.
