Quick & Light: Healthy Recipes You’ll Fall In Love With, A Book full of Quick Light Meals

Posted Aug 01 2013 3:52pm

I haven’t found many high-quality, low-cost eCookbooks with recipes for quick light meals. Have you?

And it’s rare to find one with nutritional or Weight Watchers PointsPlus information.

So, I was happy to find  Quick and Light: Healthy Recipes You’ll Fall in Love With  by Janie Samuels on Amazon for just $2.99.

Quick & Light Cookbook

Quick & Light eCookbook for Quick Light Meals

In her Welcome, Samuels says that she lost forty pounds and kept it off.

Her secret?

She learned how to cook healthier, tastier versions of all her favorite foods.

This book is filled with recipes for the quick light meals she likes. And a few desserts too.

I enjoyed reading these recipes. I was salivating. Janie cooks with the ingredients and flavors I like. All the recipes include nutritional information and Weight Watchers PointsPlus values too.

Recipes I can’t wait to try: Rosemary Turkey Cutlets. Smothered Burgers and Gravy. Sweet and Sour Shrimp. Fresh Tomato and Basil Pasta. Cheesy Zucchini Rotini. And Warm Cinnamon Apples.

Here are her recipes for quick light meals:

What are the negatives? This e-cookbook has no Photographs. A few recipes include expensive ingredients: filet mignon and lamb chops. And there may be some typos. For example, the Cheesy Zucchini Rotini calls for 1 tablespoon italian seasoning. This seems like a lot for a dish with only two servings.

Who would enjoy this book? Busy home cooks who want to eat tasty quick light meals. Weight Watchers who want recipes with nutritional information and Weight Watchers PointsPlus values.

Find this book, Quick and Light: Healthy Recipes You’ll Fall in Love With by Janie Samuels, at Amazon.
