Great Recipes; Simplified Meal Planning

Everything the first cookbook, The 1200-Calorie-a-Day Menu Cookbook : Quick and Easy Recipes for Delicious Low-fat Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners, and Desserts wanted to be and wasn't. Don't get me wrong; it was fine for its time. This book is just plain better.
Updated recipes with 9 or fewer ingredients and less reliability on fat-free, chemical-laden frankenfoods. (Although there are some!)
The entire meal takes less than 30 minutes--the whole menu complete on one page. Calorie count and other nutritional information provided for each recipe/menu including identifying menus higher in fiber, vitamins A & C, and calcium.
I made the Creamy Pumpkin Pie dip for our dance troupe hafla and it was a big hit! Nothing to take home.

Tasty, Healty meals plan out your day with nothing to think about
By Chandler - December 30, 2009
This takes the guess work out of losing weight as the author puts meal suggestions for you for a 1,500 calorie day...and you can pick and choose which ones you want each day to make it work.
At almost 200 pages, you have lots of choices.
I am actually a weight loss coach so I'm pretty regimented about what goes in my body and what I put a 5 star review on. For me personally, every recipe that I've plugged in to both my calorie counting software (free all over the internet or on iphone aps) has been accurate...but I haven't tried them all yet...I can only speak for the ones I have eaten and double checked. So far, it's on the money for me.
These are the kind of recipes you can share with your family and they will wonder why they are losing weight because they don't taste "diet"...that's my favorite kind. I love to cook, but I love good food more, and I love being skinny even more than that. :-)

Great for ideas!!

I LOVE the premise behind this book!!!!!
--delicious meals in just 30 minutes or less --nutritious and delicious 350-calorie meals --150 calorie snacks --150 calorie desserts
The author is DEFINITELY on to something here!
However, there are a few disappointments here and there that I hope the author will take to heart and revise in a future issue:
1. WAY WAY TOO MANY PORK RECIPES! In the 6 recipe Poultry- and meat-based breakfasts section, 4 of them have some form of PORK, one is beef, and ONE is for poultry as a turkey sausage dish! The next 7 recipe egg-based breakfasts section have 3 recipes calling for PORK again. Another 3 barely miss this because she specifies using turkey ham in two recipes and turkey pepperoni in one. The 10 recipe Breads, Pancakes ad Grain-based breakfasts section has another FOUR recipes or menus with PORK. She even suggests canadian bacon as part of the menu for one of her fruit- and... read more
