    You must own this cookbook.
    I got my mom a big, beautiful hardcover cookbook for her birthday and she graciously accepted it, but a few days later kindly told me that she'd rather exchange it for a book she'd been wanting to read. She told me that by now, she'd collected all the cookbooks she needed.
    I got this cookbook a few months ago and have been raving to everyone. The recipes are tasty, the portions are hefty, the preparation is easy, and every recipe is under 500 calories!
I literally carry the cookbook in my purse so that no matter where I am, I know I can make a yummy, healthy dinner without planning ahead. Last weekend I was having dinner with friends, and somehow we started talking about the contents of my purse. I pulled out my cookbook and two people decided to buy a copy!
    I'm sure you're wondering why I told you about my mom. After trying out a few of the recipes, she just had me send her the cookbook last week.   She loves it!

Description


Cook what you want to eat, without all the fat
 
The editors of Everyday Food magazine know that it’s not enough to get dinner on the table in a snap—it also has to be good for the whole family. Everyday Food: Light features delicious, healthful recipes, all under 500 calories. Organized seasonally so you can take advantage of the freshest ingredients, this book shows you how to quickly make your favorite dishes in a way that’s light but nonetheless tempting.

Making simple adjustments to your weeknight arsenal is easy with the step-by-step instructions on cooking techniques (like stir-frying and roasting), kitchen tools to help cut down on calories (such as a steamer basket and a citrus zester), and great low- or no-fat flavor boosters (marinades, herbs, and spices). And each recipe is accompanied by a beautiful color photograph and nutritional information to keep you motivated all week long. Here are some of the recipes you’ll find inside:


   • Oven-Fried Chicken
   • Saucy Shrimp and Grits
   • Lighter Eggplant Parmesan
   • Grilled Marinated Flank Steak
   • Olive-Oil Mashed Potatoes
   • Lighter Creamed Spinach
   • Tomato Salad with Olives and Lemon Zest
   • Light Chocolate-Chunk Brownies
   • Pear and Berry Crisp
   • Mini Mocha Cheesecakes
 
Tips throughout explain what makes these recipes light, whether by using simple substitutions (such as whole-wheat tortillas instead of pizza crust), smart ways to cut back on fat (topping fish with bread crumbs rather than coating it in batter), or healthy cooking methods (baking onion rings instead of frying them). You’ll also find prep and cook times for each recipe, and plenty of one-pot meals that make great weeknight dinners for the whole family.

Staying on track for a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to mean relying on gimmicky diets or eating flavorless meals. With Everyday Food: Light, cooking fulfilling and tasty dinners has never been easier or more inspiring.
