Delicious and Delighfully Easy Recipes!

I am not a big fan of cooking. Opening a jar of spaghetti sauce to top some pasta seems like enough effort. I am also as happy with a simple piece of grilled chicken as I am with one smothered in rich sauces, so cooking books are not a high priority for me. I glanced through this book at the book store only because I felt the authors other book "Low Fat Living" was excellent. To my surprise I was immediately attracted to the simplicity of the recipes, variety and their appeal. The book presents foods that I enjoy eating, that are easy to prepare and it cuts the fat and calories. So enjoyable fare like chicken fingers, Mexican dishes, pasta creations and deserts etc. are a snap to make and healthy to eat. The author Leslie Cooper includes a lot of helpful information such as the hands on time, calories, servings, fiber,fat etc. So the foods prepared can be used if you are on a diet program like Weight Watchers (you can figure out the points)or need to watch your choleserol etc. Cooper includes items such as Mixed Greens with Pecan Vinaigrette, Miso Soup, Swiss Broccoli Soup, Pan Seared Crab Cakes, Sesame Chicken Satays etc. She also includes substitutions for some items. I found the ingredients easy to obtain. Most already in my cupboard or fridge. The beginning of the book devotes about 100 pages to ways to cook for health, fat trimming swaps, reading labels, calorie burning, stress blockers etc. Lots of useful information here. The book is wonderful on its own or as a companion to the "Low Fat Living" book, Leslie cowrote with her husband. It's important to note that this book and the other one is not about eating no fat or little fat. Its about eating healthy fats in moderation. Though the book is not spiral bound it does lie flat for ease of use. The only drawback with the book is the lack of pictures. Overall though its a super nice book and one I will refer to often for quick, healthy recipes!

WOW! One word that describes it all!

This book is the best cookbook I have ever used! My physician told me I needed to cut down on fat and calories, and suggested this cookbook. I just knew I wouldn't like any of it, because almost all the low-fat cookbooks I have ever seen list not-so-common ingredients, and the food tastes bad, and so on. Boy, was I wrong!This cookbook starts off by giving diet tips and information, not too much, just a few pages. These were some of the tips I just heard on CBS Early Show Health Series. I discussed them with my weight-loss counselor, too, and all were ones they do recommend.The receipes are simple, easy to prepare, and took only minutes. I was astounded that this cookbook didn't list a lot of salads, like most low-fat ones do. These are everyday foods, and you don't even know they are low-fat. In fact, like a few other reviewers, my husband still doesn't know he's eating "diet" food. In fact, the other day, he said he knew I had been going to a cooking school because the food I prepared now was sooo much better. In reality, I have been going to a weight-loss clinic, and never told him because of the fear of failure. I now have quit those clinics, and totally rely on this cookbook. I weighed 224, and now have lost 80 pounds. I haven't been hungry and with these recipes, you can eat all you want. That's what is recommended. I also never etr tired of them because there are sooo many and each one can be prepared soo many different ways, it doesn't taste like the same receipe.Get this cookbook today. I know the money you spend on it WILL come back to you...almost immediately!

Fabulous easy low-fat cooking that TASTES good!

I love this cookbook. I don't know what that one bad review person was talking about, but they obviously don't eat a very large variety of food. Leslie Cooper had low-fat variations of so many of my favorite foods in here! And this is not your usual tasteless food eat-lots-of-salad cookbook. We're talking extremely tasty pasta dishes, Italian, Mexican, a few oriental dishes, and all time favorite American dishes. Poultry and soups and stews, seafood and cheese and eggs, pancakes and cookies and sweets..... All extremely easy to follow recipes, and for a lot of them, you probably already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen. For the first 100 pages of the book, Leslie takes you step-by-step on how to turn your life around to 24-hour low-fat eating that will burn calories around the clock. "Build meals that will burn fat all day long." And all without the usual cravings you have on a diet. She makes it so easy to "make the move to a low-fat lifestyle." She teaches you how to shop smart, to save time, money, and energy. She shows you what foods to eat at what times of day, and in what combinations. She shows you how to "spice up your life" with foods and seasonings that taste good and are still good for you. She gives you easy steps to revamp your favorite recipes to make them low-fat, she's got meals-in-a-minute for convenience without compromise. Leslie Cooper makes low-fat cooking easy and fun. She makes eating enjoyable, no more guilt. My husband doesn't even know we're on a low-fat diet, because the foods I serve him are so tasty and filling.Some of my favorites from this book: Cajun Red Beans And Rice, Smothered Burritos, Pasta and Seafood Marinara, and Baked Ziti. My husband's favorites are Chicken Parmesan Strips, Super-Bowl Chili, and Mexican Chicken in Tortillas.This book has something for everyone. You'll love it.

The Best and Easiest Lowfat Cookbook

I borrowed this book from my sister and just ordered a copy for myself. It is definitely the best lowfat cookbook out there. Unlike most lowfat cookbooks, the ingredients used are easy to find and for the most part inexpensive. The recipes are also not your typical lowfat recipes. It is more like a cookbook with regular recipes that also just happen to be lowfat. I enjoy preparing these dishes for my family knowing that they are both healthy and delicious!

Best low-fat book on the market

I was astounded by the ease of preparation of the receipes in this book. I was amazed at the simplicity of fixing them as well as the blend of common every day on-hand items. The taste is wonderful. His doctor told him he was putting him on a low-dat diet, but my husband would never adhere to it. I bought this book, and I started fixing them. He occassionally would tell me he loved whatever I was fixing. He started losing the pounds, his blood pressure dropped, and his he was taken off his cholestrol medication. He told me he didn't need to be on any low-dat diet. In the doctor's office, I brought out the book and showed the doctor and told them I had started fixing only things in this book for the last 6 months. My husband had no idea, and the doctor told me he would knock off $50 for the visit if he could have the book to show his patients. So, not only have me and my family been eating healthy, I made $25 off the book! This is one book you must have.
