about this item

Editors of Everyday Food magazine know it's not enough to get dinner on the table fast-it has to be good too. Everyday Food: Light features delicious, healthful recipes, under 500 calories. Organized seasonally to take advantage of fresh ingredients, this book shows how to make your favorite dishes in a way that's light but nonetheless tempting.

Making simple adjustments to your weeknight arsenal is easy with the step-by-step instructions on cooking techniques (like stir-frying and roasting), kitchen tools to help cut down on calories (such as a steamer basket and a citrus zester), and great low- or no-fat flavor boosters (marinades, herbs, and spices). And each recipe is accompanied by a beautiful color photograph and nutritional information to keep you motivated all week long. Here are some of the recipes you'll find inside:
Oven-Fried Chicken
Saucy Shrimp and Grits
Lighter Eggplant Parmesan
Grilled Marinated Flank Steak
Olive-Oil Mashed Potatoes
Lighter Creamed Spinach
Tomato Salad with Olives and Lemon Zest
Light Chocolate-Chunk Brownies

Tips throughout explain what makes the recipes light, whether by using simple substitutions, smart ways to cut back on fat, or healthy cooking methods. You'll also find prep and cook times for each recipe, and plenty of one-pot meals that make great weeknight dinners for the whole family.
