    Wow, this is a neat opportunity. I too saw the Iron Chef battle recently.

    I'd love some tips for cooking with health problems. I have chronic fatigue syndrome, and consequently get tired easily, have back pain and weakness, and cannot stand for more than about 10 minutes at a stretch. As a new cook, what can I do to max out my ability in the kitchen?

    Thanks!

    Sorry to hear about your health problems. I appreciate it that you want to invest your energy in cooking healthy for yourself. I would recommend choosing recipes that do not overwhelm and are simplified in ingredients and prep work. I did really think about busy people/families when I wrote Mexican Everyday but honestly it fits here because of the simple straightforward recipes, one pot meal plan and all ingredients can be found in one store. There are some recipes that can be done in a slow-cooker..that may be ideal for you. Take a look and give it a try.
