This cookbook includes simple, down-to-Earth hearty recipes. It doesn't require a lot of fancy items or ingredients that one would be forced to shop for in a specialty grocery store in order to prepare. It does what it exactly what it says in that it offers readers recipes for meals which are both satisfying and filling but still safely remain within the 400-calorie intake range. This book does NOT include color photos and/or sketches of the actual meals or dishes. Some readers may be disappointed by that, but for us it wasn't a drawback.
Each recipe includes the total number of calories, protein, fat, carbs, fiber, sugar as well as the vitamin intake, which was a surprising addition and a welcomed convenience.
The exact content of the book is as follows:
Introduction: Why 400-Calorie Recipes?Read more ›
The book is unfortunately, kinda ugly though. The paper is rough and cheap looking, but fairly thick. The spine does not allow the book to stay open easily. With time though, the spine will probably crease or loosen and this won't be much of a factor. There are NO pictures at all. Some people may like this, keeps it simple, but I really like to see what the recipe looks like made up. This gets me more excited about making the meal and it lets me know at a glance if I have the materials or even if it looks appetizing. I like that there is a short intro to all of the chapters giving a bit more info on that particular grouping. The font is a decent size and even the nutritional information is easily readable even without my reading glasses. There are a few lame tips scattered throughout such as: You can substitute other vegetables like onions and zucchini OR Serve over noodles or rice. Sorta silly stuff. The recipes do not give a prep time or total time to make which is always helpful, but not mandatory. And most of these recipes are indeed short and do not look like gourmet, lengthy ordeals. :-)
A very nice addition to helping Americans lose some weight!
