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

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.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Excellent cookbook for those wanting to eat healthy and also to watch calorie counts. I tried a lot of recipes from it and they were delicious. I even repeated a few of them to serve at dinner parties, one example the mini-mocha cheesecakes was a big hit and low in calories too. I am going to buy a copy for my cookbook collection.
