Our New Healthy Eating Cookbook featured on 'Good Morning America"

Exciting news! Our New Healthy Eating Cookbook, Fourth Edition was featured on "Good Morning America" (GMA) on Oct. 19, and on the Jumbotron in Times Square.

The book and its author, Jeanne Besser​, were featured in a cooking segment on the popular morning ABC show. You can watch it here!

Two recipes were featured -- a burrito bowl and a dessert made of frozen bananas and chocolate -- both tasty and flavorful without a lot of calories. 

With Besser, talking about the concept of eating healthy without sacrificing taste, was her husband, ABC News’ Chief Health and Medical Reporter Rich Besser. GMA hired a cook to pre-prep Jeanne Besser's Flank Steak Burrito Bowls with Corn Salsa and Jeanne Besser's Frozen Bananas 3 Ways​
