Two months have gone by, have you kept true to your New Year's resolutions? I am always looking for ways to make better choices while trying to loose the baby weight. Recipes for healthy cooking can sometimes be challenging. Eating Light 400 Calories or Less is a bookazine that can help you achieve your goal or get back on track with light and healthy recipes that are easy to prepare.
Eating Light is loaded with research-backed dieting tips, slender choices for dining out, and satisfying recipes designed to help you stay on track, all developed and tested by the editors ofGood Housekeeping, Redbook, and Country Living.

Recipes are broken down by season to draw upon fresh ingredients, so you can eat what you crave while being kind to your waistline. Here is a sampling of light choices through the seasons:
Winter recipes like Low-Fat Lasagna (pg. 33) and Chicken Pot Pie (pg. 42) satisfy cravings for comfort food, while spring ideas like Basil Orange Chicken (48) and Grilled Swordfish Kabobs with Parsley-Olive Salsa (pg. 57) make use of seasonal herbs.
