I think one of the big fears that keeps us from eating better and losing weight is the belief that we have to give up our favorite foods. Trade in the foods we love for bland, boring, tasteless “diet” dishes. Subsist on a steady diet of grilled chicken and steamed broccoli.
The Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook is designed to dispel that myth.

And it’s more than just a cookbook. You also get a six-week 1400 calorie/day meal plan. Lists of “free” foods, snacks under 50 calories and snacks with 51 – 100 calories. Lots of tips and helpful information regarding exercise, portion control and eating out. And motivational stories from people who successfully lost weight using the Comfort Food Diet Cookbook eating plan.
The Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook is organized into the following color-coded chapters:
Snacks with 100 calories or less
Breakfasts with 100 or fewer calories and 101 to 250 calories

There’s complete nutritional information for all recipes. So if you are following Weight Watchers you can easily calculate PointsPlus values. And most of the recipes include a photo.
The Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook is designed for busy home cooks who want to eat better without giving up the foods they crave. As you would expect, these are not fancy recipes. They are simple tasty recipes for everyday comfort foods made lighter using common grocery store ingredients.
I love cookbooks. I’ve got a bit of a cookbook addiction and am always on the lookout for the next great cookbook. Do you have a favorite cookbook, Weight Watchers friendly or not? I’d love to hear about it!
