500 Light Meals is full of delicious recipes that are designed to be healthy and low in calories. This isn’t specifically a diet book, but instead is designed to support and inspire those who want to watch their food intake without having to count each calorie. For this reason the meals are not calorie counted, but as a rough guide, per portion, main courses are well under 500 calories, lighter dishes under 350, and desserts and baked goods no more than 300 calories.
The objective is to cook some familiar and some new and creative meals using less fat and sugar than usual, but without compromising on flavour and texture. The recipes generally use minimal amounts of cooking oil, non-fat or low-fat dairy products and lean meats, as well as clever tricks and substitutions to omit or reduce high-fat and high cholesterol ingredients. - See more at: http://www.randomstruik.co.za/books/500-light-meals/5260#sthash.Eodh6YWM.dpuf
