Though I usually advocate baby steps as a means to adopt a healthier lifestyle, sometimes more drastic measures are required. When serious medical issues afflict us or our children, skipping the chips may not do the trick. I recently interviewed Samantha, mother of two, whose 8-year old child was diagnosed with ADHD.

In my upcoming book, Eat In, Not Out, due for release next Monday, I devote a chapter to re-creating restaurant dishes at home.
