Overview

Do you love food but hate “diets”? Do you want to be healthy and fit but find yourself too busy or simply at a loss about what to make for dinner? Then this book is for you.EatingWell 500-Calorie Dinners takes the guesswork out of healthy cooking by providing delicious, easy recipes and menus for dinners that come in at about 500 calories, an amount experts say will help most people lose weight without feeling deprived. Once you try the meals in this book you’ll be amazed at how well you can eat for 500 calories. One night you’ll have a steak sandwich with grilled peppers and a garlicky aioli served along with roasted red potatoes and a green salad with a tangy vinaigrette, the next night braised chicken in a paprika-spiked sauce over egg noodles with snap peas tossed with a creamy tarragon dressing. Want a glass of wine with dinner or a dessert to end the evening? We’ve included those in our menus too. Try pork chops with an orange and fennel salad along with a side of quinoa and a dish of strawberry frozen yogurt.
And this book will help you to do more than just trim your waistline—it will help you to improve your heart health and reduce your risk for diabetes too. It provides solid advice from EatingWell Magazine’s nutrition experts on what foods should be included in any healthful diet, how to figure out how many calories you need, how to determine appropriate serving sizes and estimate calories (without carting around a kitchen scale everywhere you go) and how to lose weight while still feeling satisfied.
In this book, you’ll also find:

Editorial Reviews

Joy Bauer
“I always say, ‘Life is hard…food should be easy.’ EatingWell 500-Calorie Dinners makes deciding what to have for dinner easy and delicious! With nearly 100 dinner menus that are satisfying and nutritionally balanced, this book is a great tool for anyone who’s trying to get—or stay—slim.”
Ming Tsai
“I’ve been cooking East-West food my entire life, and one of the things I love about it is that the ingredients and techniques used most often are all inherently healthy. You can feel good about eating it and it tastes good too. The recipes in 500-Calorie Dinners deliver that same great promise—healthy food that’s actually tasty. And simple too—one of my favorite things!”
Ellie Krieger
“EatingWell has done it again! This book is packed with mouthwatering, inspiring and accessible recipes that make you want to get cooking right away. They do the calorie counting for you so you can relax and enjoy every bite.”
Library Journal
The deputy editors at the Eating Well Media Group, publishers of the 2008 James Beard Award-winning The EatingWell Diet, are back to help dieters prepare healthy dinners with yummy recipes designed to fill up the tummy while keeping the calories low. For example, try Mozzarella-Stuffed Turkey Burgers instead of pizza (300 calories); here are the flavors dieters crave, and your dinner still has 200 calories to spare! Each recipe includes calories, cooking time, complementary recipes, and diet tips (such as removing skin from the chicken). For public libraries and dieters.

Great photos and I like that it gives you suggestions on sides to have with your main course. The nutrional information is helpful along with the prep and cooking time provided. Most of the meals have been fantastic tasting and turn out looking like the photo in the cook book. Our hunger is satisfied and we are losing weight.
