Editorial Reviews

Review

“The deputy editors at the EatingWell Media Group, publishers of the 2008 James Beard Award-winning The EatingWell Diet, are back to help dieters prepare healthy dinners with yummy recipes designed to fill up the tummy while keeping the calories low.” (Library Journal)

“I’ve been cooking East-West food my entire life, and one of the things I love about it is that the ingredients and techniques used most often are all inherently healthy. You can feel good about eating it and it tastes good too. The recipes in 500-Calorie Dinners deliver that same great promise―healthy food that’s actually tasty. And simple too―one of my favorite things!” (Ming Tsai, chef/owner of Blue Ginger)

EatingWell has done it again! This book is packed with mouthwatering, inspiring and accessible recipes that make you want to get cooking right away. They do the calorie counting for you so you can relax and enjoy every bite.” (Ellie Krieger, RD, author of So Easy: Luscious, Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Week)

“I?always say, ‘Life is hard…food should be easy.’ EatingWell 500-Calorie Dinners makes deciding what to have for dinner easy and delicious!?With nearly 100 dinner menus that are satisfying and nutritionally balanced, this book is a great tool for anyone who’s trying to get―or stay―slim.” (Joy Bauer, MS, RD, CDN, bestselling author of Your Inner Skinny)

I know I shouldn't write a review before finishing the book, let alone give it five stars, but I couldn't resist alerting you to an inovative and user-friendly cookbook. It not only has these attributes going for it, but more importantly, the simple recipes are for "foodies" and novices both. I am a 70 year old grandmom who has a passion for cooking and healthy diets. If you want to start the New Year with a wise companion in the kitchen, this is it. Each recipe is accompanied with a full meal menu - all equaling 500 calories. It's all there in front of you. So, forget the latest craze diet - please! This cookbook will assist you in creating your own healthy diet - with whole foods and original, simple and sophisticated recipes. Cook On!

This is the 6th EatingWell cookbook I own. As with the other cookbooks, this one does an excellent job of using fresh ingredients balanced with simple execution for a well balanced and tasty meal. Besides being low calorie, I've found there are also many options in here for those following a Low GI Diet.

This book reuses some of the recipes from their other cookbooks (so far I've noticed a few from The Essential EatingWell Cookbook.) but what makes this stand out is that it tells you what else to put on the menu that will balance well with your main course but still stay under 500. I'm not a chef, I'm an eater... so that aspect of cooking has always been a challenge for me and having it spelled out (eat this with that) makes quick cooking much less stressful. All the recipes for the side items on the menus are included in the book as well, making it a great one stop cookbook.

I've been trying to watch my calories and bought this book to help me with ideas on lower calorie, healthy dinners. This book was more than I expected! I absolutely love it! I tried a few recipes and can't wait to try more! It actually motivates me to cook. :) I love that the book also pairs up meals to make it a full dinner and make sure that it's all around 500 calories. For example, it'll have a main dish recipe and along the side of the page it lists what you can pair it up with - an appetizer of some sort, with soup or a glass of wine (all to add up to around 500). The book not only has recipes for main dishes, but also for soups and appetizers and side dishes, even some dessert items! Totally recommend this book!

I ahve been a subscriber of the Eating Well Magazine for the past two years, so when I saw this cookbook I had to buy it right away. I love to cook (and eat) the recipes in the magazine, so I had high hopes that these would be the same quality recipes to which I was accustomed only lighter. Unfortunately, I have to say that I was disappointed in the recipes when I got the book. Yes it is extremely helpful and convenient to have an entire menu suggested for each recipe, but the recipes themselves are nothing to get excited about. I didnt need a cookbook to know how to marinate shrimp in garlic and lemon juice and then grill... The flavor combinations and ingredients are nothing new or quite frankly interesting for me. I have been cooking healthfully using similar recipes I made up on my own for years. I thought about returning the book, but I have finally decided to keep it to help me plan out menus and possibly make slightly different variations of the recipes I already make. With all of that being said, this would probably make a great cookbook for a novice cook who is just learning how to cook low fat.

My family has thoroughly enjoyed the recipes and the variety that comes from this book. Some particular favorites are: Indian Seared Chicken & Vegetables, Braised Paprika Chicken, & Chicken Curry with Rice. If you have family members that don't like Seafood, then another book might be better. The Seafood section seems to have more than any other section. Also, for a budgeting family, some of the ingredients are too expensive. But all in all, we really enjoy the book.

This book for meal planning is awesome. It is well worth the money. Lots of
great ideas for meals. The meals are easy to make. The spices are on your shelves in your kitchen that you would use everyday but in different combos. The use of other spices to celebrate food in a different ways is fun and you can lose weight ! you would never think that the meals are less then 500 calories.

Martha Stewart's take on meals under 500 Calories is much much better. This has very few usable recipes and the majority are only counting the calories in the main entree, not the sides as Martha's book does. I would pass on this one, most of these recipes are on the website as well.

Not as specifically helpful as the one for Diabetes but still great recipes. appealing from both taste and appearance perspectives and makes calorie control fun again, instead of a hunk of meat and steamed vegetables.
