Concerned about the continuing deterioration of Americans' health, cookbook author Mollie Katzen has teamed up with the cofounder of RealAge and coauthor of the popular YOU series, Dr. Michael Roizen, to change the way America eats.

Their Smart Menu program, underwritten by the California Walnut Board, is designed to help people adopt a smart eating style that is long on taste and convenience and short on scolding. "My goal is to find the most appealing and delicious ways to prepare and present fruits, vegetables, whole grains, good oils, legumes, nuts and meat and dairy – and to get people eating smart and feeling and looking wonderful," says Katzen.
