The Recipe Doctor
Elaine Magee, MPH, RD, is positively passionate about changing the way America eats—one recipe at a time! Through her national column, THE RECIPE DOCTOR (appearing in newspapers and magazines), Elaine has been performing recipe "makeovers" for a decade now. In her recipe makeovers, she is able to bring down the calories, fat, saturated fat, and sometimes sugar and sodium, while simultaneously increasing fiber, phytochemicals, omega-3s, and monounsaturated fat.
Elaine is the author of more than 25 books on nutrition and healthy cooking. Her two most recent books are FOOD SYNERGY (Rodale, March 2008) and COMFORT FOOD MAKEOVERS. Elaine's medical nutrition series, including TELL ME WHAT TO EAT IF I HAVE DIABETES, TELL ME WHAT TO EAT IF I HAVE IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME, TELL ME WHAT TO EAT IF I HAVE ACID REFLUX, and TELL ME WHAT TO EAT IF I HAVE HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES (and others), has sold hundreds of thousands of copies and is now being distributed all over the world, including China, Russia, Spain, Indonesia, and Arabian countries.
Elaine is a nutrition expert/writer for SilverPlanet.com, WebMD.com, and magazines across the country, and she appears frequently on radio, educational videos, and television shows.
