This compilation of the best of the Light and Easy Collection plus over 100 new recipes brings you creative combinations of ordinary food. Now you’ll have an enthusiastic answer to the question “What’s for dinner?” And you can be confident that every recipe uses healthy, easy-to-find, basic ingredients for great-tasting food in record time. On these pages you’ll find:
Super-Quick recipes – as in 25 minutes or less from pantry to table. Need an appetizer now? Pull a few ingredients off your shelf and try Quick Chicken Quesadillas (page 17) or any one of the other 103 superquick recipes throughout the book.
Preparation and cooking times listed with every recipe. You can be assured that Greek Salad (page 15) will get you out of the kitchen in a record 15 minutes.
Nutrient Analyses and Diabetic Exchanges provided with every recipe. Orange-Coconut Angel Food Cake (page 58) and Frosted Peppermint Brownies (page 65) are just two of the showstopper desserts that will satisfy your sweet tooth and save your waistline. So you can indulge without the guilt.
Meal plans included with all 14 menus. If planning healthy meals is more challenging than actually preparing the recipes, the Quick Menus such as Grill Out Tonight (page 208) were created just for you.
