The perfect companion for cooking delicious and varied meals that fit into a healthy eating plan
Better Homes and Gardens Calorie-Smart Meals is a must-have recipe collection of tasty meals that don't break the daily calorie bank. This is an easy-to-use, modern guide to preparing simple, healthful dishes, with chapters organized by calories, covering meals under 300, 400, and 500 calories plus snacks under 200 calories and desserts under 250 calories. With more than 150 recipes and more than 100 gorgeous photos, the book helps cooks make health-conscious meals such as Peruvian-Style Chicken Tacos (under 300 calories), Pumpkin-Parmesan Risotto (300-400), and Wild Mushroom Ravioli Skillet (400-500). Each calorie level includes recipes good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so cooks have flexibility to put together a meal plan that suits their lifestyle, calorie needs, and preferences.
The iconic BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS brand is one of America's most trusted sources for information on cooking, gardening, home improvement, home design, decorating, and crafting. Today, the brand encompasses books, magazines, and digital media.
"Unlike most cookbooks, this one compiles recipes by calorie count and not by whether it's a breakfast, soup, entree or side. "Better Homes and Gardens Calorie Smart Meals," (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $19.99) is a great book to have handy when the smartphone or other gadget notes that there are only 300 calories left to ingest that day or that a splurge with a 500-calorie dish will work." --Knoxville News-Sentinel
