Review: The Ultimate Low-Calorie Meals Book from BH&G

As the Autumn cookbook season continues it’s time to take a look at another recent release from the good folks at Better Homes & Garden, The Ultimate Low-Calorie Meals Book.  And this one is tailor-made for helping folks drop those Christmas pounds.

The Ultimate Low-Calorie Meals BookNew in the Ultimate series, The Ultimate Low-Calorie Meals Book offers hundreds of recipes and ideas that make eating healthy and watching your weight easy and delicious. These recipes are ideal for light and nutritious everyday meals that form the basis of a healthy lifestyle. Filled with dishes the entire family will love, recipes are clearly marked with icons that let you quickly identify recipes that are ready in 30 minutes or less, high in fiber, and low in sodium.

Packed with more than 400 delicious and nutritious low-calorie meals and hundreds of beautiful photos, The Ultimate Low-Calorie Meals Book is a great resource at a great price.

  • Features more than 400 flavorful calorie- and fat-conscious recipes, including main dishes, snacks, sandwiches, pizza, desserts, restaurant favorites, and make-ahead meals
  • Includes more than 300 gorgeous full-color photographs that make every page inspiring and easy to follow
  • Special Healthy Eating Basics chapter
  • Special features include substitution charts that help make every meal more calorie-conscious, up-to-date diet and nutrition advice, and much more

A book like The Ultimate Low-Calorie Meals Book is perfect for those who want to start the New Year by eating a little leaner.  With hundreds of easy to prepare recipes taking up nearly 500 pages you could conceivably eat something from this book every single day and not repeat a recipe for over a year.  That should keep that New Year’s Resolution from burning out in week two.

The book is well organized and chock full of colorful food porn.  But hey, why take my word for it?
