Betty Crocker 300 Calorie Comfort Food: 300 Favorite Recipes for Eating Healthy Every Day

We rated this book:


For those on a diet, Betty Crocker’s 300 Calorie Comfort Food is a good choice. Since this cookbook is part of a well-known set of cookbooks, good recipes, good recipe layout, and easy-to-follow instructions are virtually guaranteed. This book presents three hundred low-calorie recipes in the usual cookbook format, moving from breakfast through desserts and snacks in ten chapters. The recipes are drawn from an international repertoire, each clearly labeled on top in a red circle with the calorie count per serving. The serving sizes are adequate for the average eater, and many recipes are single-dish items. Under the title, the text gives prep and start to finish times and number of servings, while below you’ll find good “kitchen tips,” “healthy smart ideas,” “quick meal ideas” and variations under “try this.” Under each recipe, there is complete per-serving nutritional information. The recipe layout is excellent. Some recipes are almost scratch cooking, but in many, the ingredients are store-bought, such as frozen chopped vegetables, frozen stir-fry veggies, or gravy mix. These will speed up kitchen work but add to the cost. The only illustrations included are two bound eight-page sets of photos. The index is thorough and well cross-referenced.
