Eating Light: 400 Calories or Less

Eating Light: 400 Calories or Less is a bookazine filled with 118 recipes by the editors of Good Housekeeping, Redbook, and Country Living.

Eating Light 400 Calories or Less provides 52 tips - one for every week of the year - that will help you make healthy choices in the months to come. With advice on ordering skinny meals at restaurants, choosing beverages wisely, and blasting belly fat (try green tea, healthy fats, and purple foods!), Eating Light has you covered. Plus, a slim-down plan indicates how many calories you should consume at each meal, so you'll drop extra pounds safely and confidently.

Winter recipes like Low-Fat Lasagna (pg. 33) and Chicken Pot Pie (pg. 42) satisfy cravings for comfort food, while spring ideas like Basil Orange Chicken (48) and Grilled Swordfish Kabobs with Parsley-Olive Salsa (pg. 57) make use of seasonal herbs. Summer is grilling season, so you'll want to whip up Bacon-Wrapped Scallops (pg. 69) and Grilled Flank Steak with Corn Relish (pg. 80). Finally, transition to autumn with Fusilli with Veal, Squash & Sage (pg. 106) and Cranberry Turkey Cutlets (pg. 99).

As you can tell from the above description, this bookazine is not so good for vegetarians, and the presence of veal is just inhumane. Recipes can be adapted to be meat-free.

I can't wait to try the Tomato Tarte Tatin once we have fresh plum tomatoes again in the garden. The Cheesy Stuffed Eggplant also looks really good. We are always looking for ways to use up eggplant at harvest time.

Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
