Overview

The emphasis is on quick and easy in this updated edition of Sue Spitler's encyclopedia of healthy cooking. Cutting fat without sacrificing great taste means adding lots of interesting herbs and spices. But this doesn't mean that dishes have to take hours to prepare. Most of the recipes in this book can be made in 30 minutes or less and feature easy-to-find fresh ingredients. To make meal planning even more convenient, Spitler provides tips on what to prepare in advance and freeze, what to make early in the day and refrigerate, and what to do to complete the meal.

The cover has been redesigned and the contents have been updated to include 25 complete menus for weekend brunches, weekday lunches, family dinners, holiday spreads, special occasions, and dining for two. Readers will find old favorites like clam chowder, beef Stroganoff, eggplant Parmesan, and potato salad, along with dozens of new gourmet creations, stir-fries, and microwave quickies. And for everyone who believes low-fat means no dessert, there are three chapters of cakes, pies, puddings, cookies, mousses, cheesecakes, and toppings that will delight the taste buds without expanding the waistline.

User-friendly icons indicate what cooking style is called for and let cooks identify make-ahead dishes at a glance. Each recipe included detailed nutritional information, including the amount of calories, fat, cholesterol, and sodium per serving. The introduciton gives nationally accepted guidelines for reduced fat eating and lays out a healthy eating plan.
