Trisha Yearwood has announced plans to release her third cookbook, and it seems the collection will be reflective of her new, svelte figure. 'Trisha's Table: My Feel-Good Favorites for a Balanced Life,' which will be released on March 31, includes recipes that fit with the country singer's own approach to healthy living.

“Growing up enjoying my parents’ and grandparents’ comfort food taught me early on about taste," Yearwood explains in the book's introduction. "It was always hard for me to go on a traditional diet because I had been led to believe I had to sacrifice flavor to shed a few pounds, so that effort never lasted very long. This girl likes food!

"I am not one of those people who gets so busy with my day that I suddenly think to myself, 'Wow, I forgot to eat lunch!'" she continues. "That never happens to me. Never. I think about food all the time, so making peace with eating is a daily battle for me. I won’t say I’ve completely figured it out, but I will say that right now, I win that battle more days than I lose it, and I believe that’s the key.”

The cookbook, once again written with her sister, Beth Yearwood Bernard, is the first since Yearwood's Emmy-winning show, 'Trisha's Southern Kitchen,' debuted on the Food Network in 2012. It will also be her first cookbook that is not co-written by her mother Gwen, who passed away in 2011 from breast cancer.

Both of Yearwood's previous cookbooks, 2008's 'Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen' and 2010's 'Home Cooking With Trisha Yearwood' became best-sellers.

Yearwood's husband, Garth Brooks, wrote the forward for 'Trisha's Table: My Feel-Good Favorites for a Balanced Life.' Pre-order a copy here.
