The Best and Lightest
150 Healthy Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
by the editors of Food Network Magazine
I have watched The Food Network for many years and some of my favorite shows are the ones that showcase healthy and light recipes that I can try out on my family. I was offered to review a copy of their cookbook, The Best and Lightest, as long as I would give my honest opinion about the book. I was thrilled to be able to review this book as I was sure that there would be some outstanding recipes for me to try!
Included in the book is recipes for any meal of the day and best part of that is that they are all under 500 calories. Another thing I really love about this book is that each recipe includes the nutritional information. Not only that but each and every recipe has a full color picture to go along with it. I find myself only wanting to try out new recipes if I can visually see what they look like before I even take a bite.
The book has a very nice index listing of over 150 different recipes. It includes sandwiches, meat, poultry, soups, breakfast, side dishes, sweets, and pasta, so it's easy to find something to enjoy for everyone. Another plus to this cookbook is the recipes you readily available ingredients that you could find at your corner grocery store. You don't have to go to multiple stores to find the ingredients to make a dish. For me that is a huge plus!
The Best and Lightest will be a favorite in my kitchen. We have decided to start eating healthier and with the variety of recipes to choose from I can see myself coming back to this cookbook again and again.
I received this complimentary book from Blogging for Books for this review. All opinions are my own.
