Mix & Match Low-Calorie Cookbook by Cooking Light


I love new cookbooks. I am like a kid in a candy shop...oops, bad analogy...how about...it is a joy equal to getting a new piece of jewelry? Anyway, I love checking out new books, particularly those focusing on creative, tasty recipes that are calorie conscious. Cooking Light has come out with a new book that I found very appealing. It is called mix & match low-calorie cookbook. Like some of the other recent cookbooks I have acquired, it focuses on mixing and matching recipes for the various meals and snacks of the day so they total around 1500 calories. There are several things I like about this cookbook.

Number 1, it uses delicious recipes that are doable and not too time consuming.
Number 2, it works with the concept of "making a meal" so each recipe also incorporates additional foods or side-dishes to complete your meal.
Number 3, it also shows you how to add an additional portion or food to add a few more calories to complete a meal for the more athletic or male members of your family.
Number 4, it includes snacks in its 1500 calories a day concept. I have found I need snacks to get through the day and to the next meal. I really like their snack dishes offered and can't wait to try them out.
Number 5, it offers good advice at the beginning of the book as well as throughout its pages on how to live a healthier lifestyle as well as why certain foods are important to eat.

All-in-all I am pleased with my new cookbook, eager to try the recipes and overall concept out. And I look forward to commenting on the recipes in the weeks to come.
