5 Stars Love this book!
I love this book! Many many wonderful recipes – and the nutritional information given can be used to calculate Weight Watchers points! I highly recommend this book.
5 Stars Great Recipes
I love that this book has a lot of pictures with the recipes with the nutrition information. I like to see what it’s going to look like before I make a recipe.
I only used this book for the recipes but there’s also a section with meal plans and diet guide too.
4 Stars Tasty recipes, but same as another book
The recipes I have tried are tasty, though I am surprised how many call for butter, salt and other ingredients that are usually no-nos. The recipes in the book seem to be exactly the same as the ones in Taste of Home: Everyday Light Meals, so don’t be tempted to get them both (as I had). This book has an intro and appendix with worksheets and tips for weight loss, whereas the other book focuses on lightening up favorite recipes – but the recipes are exactly the same in both books. The recipes are organized differently: this book has them sorted by calorie count; whereas the Taste of Home: Everyday Light Meals book has them sorted by the categories you usually seen in a cookbook (appetizers, desserts, pasta dishes, etc).
5 Stars Healthy Cooking That Fits The Bill On All Counts
So I needed a new cookbook to help me start preparing healthier meals for my family of five, but with a few conditions: 1) The food had to actually taste good (not like cardboard!) and include a solid variety of recipes. After all, who besides Hollywood celebrities actually wants to eat that stereotypical diet dinner of boring, bland grilled chicken or fish and veggies and rice every day of life? 2) The recipe ingredients had to be affordable for the average family budget, not comprised of dozens of expensive, “exotic” fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices I’ve never heard of. 3) It wouldn’t hurt if the recipes were actually easy to follow, either. The Taste Of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook fits the bill on all counts. Examples of recipes the whole family has especially enjoyed (and really there are no complete “flops” in this cookbook at all) include Tasty Italian Chicken, Chili Sauce Meat Loaf, Creamy Swiss Steak, Slow-Cooked Sweet ‘N’ Sour Pork, Beef And Spinach Lasagna (yes, lasagna!) and Dijon-Crusted Fish. There are also recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dessert, and to top it all off, the extra recipes you’ll get with the included, free 1-year subcription to Healthy Cooking magazine make this cookbook an excellent value for the already-low price.
4 Stars Helpful for Diabetics
I recently attended a diabetic class and need to adjust to a healthier diet. This book was very helpful with menu suggestions and all the “numbers” I needed to help me make good choices. The recipes are pretty easy with ingredients that you would normally have on hand. It made the task simple and my family has enjoyed every new meal. I cook for all of us and still cover my needs. It has taken a lot of the planning out of the meals and cooking has become fun again. I highly recommend it for someone who needs to plan their meals carefully – which is EVERYONE!
