My Review

This is an awesome cookbook. My husband tends to like his fried, greasy, fatty foods that have 1000 calories. I’m not really into diet food but I would like to eat a bit healthier now and then. This cookbook has an amazing selection of breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and vegetarian recipes that are under 400 calories. I’ve bookmarked about 20 so far that we want to try. The recipes are so simple that anyone, even someone with limited cooking skills, can follow along and make a delicious meal!
