Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Szechuan-style tofu with peanuts

    • Londonyankee on January 23, 2019

      Very quick and tasty. Not very spicy, so add sauce at the table. I like the crunch of the peanuts. Cook the tofu earlier in the day to make it faster. Maybe double the sauce? Check the calories in MFP. Serve with side of stir fried veggies.

  • Buttermilk pancakes

      Family favorite that it is my Cooking That Counts cook book by the editors of Cooking Light

Cooking that Counts delivers sustainable 1,200-1,500 calorie-controlled meal plans packed with tasty food in an easy-to-use format.

With more than 150 recipes, readers will enjoy menu variety (hopefully picking up some new favorite recipes along the way!) as well as some flexibility to enjoy desserts and alcohol while still losing weight. More than just a cookbook, the Cooking Light editors offer suggestions throughout to create full meals that meet daily calorie goals, as well as providing simple serving suggestions for sides to help readers stay on track without feeling deprived. Readers will find information about fresh, convenient options for when time is tight, including suggestions for healthy readymade foods, shopping guidance, and make-ahead tips.
