Cookbooks – things I would like to see more of

I’ve been looking at a lot of recipes on the web lately and a lot of cookbooks.

There are a couple of things I would like to see more of with both:

  1. Nutrition information
  2. Serving suggestions

It seems like there is an eternal struggle between tasty cuisine and optimum nutrition.

Sometimes I like to compromise on one or the other. Either way, I like to know what I am eating.

As a cookbook consumer I don’t think I am alone in that regard. It is a nuisance to have to figure out my own nutrition information and serving sizes.

There are a number of cheap and even free nutrition software packages out there that are very easy to use. There isn’t any reason for a professional, like a cookbook author not to use them.

  1. So does “serving suggestions” mean just “serving sizes,” or “things to serve this stuff with to make a complete meal” or what? Because almost all (if not all) the cookbooks I use have the former, and most have the latter, so I’m not sure I understand what you think is lacking.

  2. i’ve used way too many cookbooks in which the nutrition info was wrong.

    i find it easier, if i really want to figure it out, to add up totals in my mind while i’m measuring things out & remember some calorie/ fat averages for diff. fruits and veggies.
