Description
"The dishes in this book are edible proof that you don't have to choose between your favorite foods and your well-being," says dietician and Food Network host Ellie Krieger. "That's because each recipe here is 'fixed,' or made over, so it hits just the right comfort spot, giving you your 'fix' without the unhealthy downsides." The 150 soul-satisfying recipes here include such hearty favorites as meatloaf, lasagna, chicken potpie, crab cakes, and mashed potatoes, but without all the calories and saturated fat. Providing full nutrition information for every recipe, Ellie serves up healthy delights like delicious Sweet Potato Casserole with just a third of the calories, and amazing Buttermilk Waffles with a fraction of the fat.

"Bringing sensibility to sensory pleasures, this accessible, health-minded cookbook is a welcome resource in a burger and bacon-obsessed moment.... Krieger avoids using artificial sweeteners and egg replacers—instead, she relies on what she terms the 15 Fix Factors to make her recipes healthier. These include substituting low-fat milk, evaporated milk and Greek yogurt for cream; baking breaded dishes instead of frying; adding smaller quantities of real, extra-flavorful cheeses and employing trimmed lean cuts of meat. Mango Stuffed Challah French Toast is lightened up with light ricotta, low-fat milk and nonstick cooking spray for a calorie savings of 150, while Chicken Parmesan loses 210 calories with light bread crumbs, egg whites, nonfat milk and part-skim mozzarella.... Krieger's repertoire runs the international gamut, from Easy Cassoulet to Kasha Varnishkas to Banana Pudding with Vanilla Wafers. Krieger's simple, time-conscious recipes with easy-to-find ingredients will satisfy sophisticated eaters and down-home palates alike."—Publishers Weekly
