At the outset, Koch looks at some of the key nutritional concepts--calories, fat, salt, carbohydrates, and proteins. In each instance, she lays out the nuances (e.g., good versus not-so-good fats). She writes of diet and diabetes and then enters the realm of "meal planning," including food exchanges, carbohydrate counting, and nutritional analysis. Then, a brief discussion of essential ingredients, ones that (Page 24) ". . .are simply low in sugar, fats, and calories" and assist, easily, developing tasty meals. Among these? Splenda, cottage cheese, cooking/baking sprays, oats, flavorings, and so on.
For any cookbook, though, it's the recipes that are at the heart of matters. This book is divided into numerous categories, starting with hot and cold beverages and ending with creamy desserts. In between? Smoothies and shakes, breakfast entrees, appetizers, salads, pasta, poultry, seafood, and the like.
Just a few examples to illustrate. I use a chicken piccata recipe that works very well. This book features such a recipe as well. Many similarities with what I make, but some interesting differences. Ingredients: boneless chicken breasts, flour, olive oil, white wine, lemon juice, chicken broth (reduced sodium), capers (optional--but I can't stand the thought of optional capers! They add such a nice taste), butter/margarine, and parsley. The steps to make the final dish are straightforward.Read more ›
Thankfully I've always loved Splenda in my iced tea and thanks to Eat What You Love: More than 300 Incredible Recipes Low in Sugar, Fat and Calories I am able to use Splenda to create luscious desserts. Tonight we enjoyed a delicious chocolate cake for dessert. The recipe used dark brown sugar, Splenda, cocoa, corn oil, buttermilk, egg and vanilla to stir up a rich tasting cake without as many calories or sugar content. As I don't normally keep cake flour in the cupboard I used my usual substitution which is to add 1 tablespoon cornstarch to a scant cup of all-purpose flour. Worked fine in this recipe as the cake turned out tender and moist.
I've also made her recipe for soft-batch chocolate chip cookies which everyone really, really liked. I took some of these cookies to share at my doctor's office and the medical staff raved about how delicious the cookies were. They couldn't believe the cookies were made from a reduced sugar and fat recipe.
I highly recommend this book as it provides a wide selection of reduced sugar and fat recipes. Another bonus is the how the recipes are relatively low in calories.
