Highly recommend this book!
It's basically the same recipes, same ingredients, re-hashed over and over again with little to slight variation to make up a bulk of the book.
She likes to use substitutions, but she uses them for the bulk of the book such as, spaghetti squash for spaghetti, cauliflower for potatoes, pita and tortillas instead of pizza dough. This is fine, but if you don't care for these substitutions or if you just don't want them all the time, you're out of luck as they are used a majority of the time.
She calls for the same brand-name ingredients excessively. Making really for little variation in her recipes. And really, to the extent that she calls for these brands and praises them, it LOOKS like a book of exuberant endorsement deals.
Hungry Girl's official position is that they do not accept compensation for editorial "placement." Make of that what you will, but I haven't been the only one with suspicions (any layman would be) because of the amount to which she calls for the same brands.
Either way, if you use the book often you're going to be VERY sick of Fiber One cereal and Laughing Cow cheese, for example.
If you are looking for some great WW friendly recipes I've become a big fan of the Skinnytaste blog.
Bottom line, I WANTED to like this book but with the bulk of it being repetitious, filler recipes, it just isn't worth it. I'm returning my copy.
A lot of the recipes are for one serving which is good news for singles who enjoy cooking, and any recipe can be doubled, tripled, etc., to meet the needs of a family or larger gathering. It is unexpectedly versatile because everyone can use it from single college students to newlyweds cooking for two to larger families.
If food doesn't taste good, we won't bother and that's the point of this cookbook. It offers tasty and satisfying low-calorie recipes that fill us up without the guilt. Many of them rely on artificial sweeteners, fat-free foods, and processed foods such as liquid egg substitute like Egg Beaters, Splenda, fat-free sour cream and salad dressings, bottled sauces, canned fruit and vegetables, etc. but they can be easily modified using the whole or fresh food versions for people who aren't counting calories or don't like the low-calorie or processed ingredients. Overall I found the recipes to be healthy alternatives to most restaurant or fast-food choices and portion sizes are large enough to be satisfying while not encouraging overeating. Mostly I like that the recipes use ingredients easily found in any grocery store and can be easily modified to personal taste.
Each recipe includes icons to indicate serving size, amount of preparation time, meatless dishes, and those that use five ingredients or less.Read more ›

Tons of recipes. Definitely a lot to choose from. A few misses but most of them are good. However the desserts are not low calorie which sucks. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kristen
