Overview
"Lowfat Cooking For Dummies" features over 150 tasty, easy-to-prepare recipes for brown-bag lunches, Sunday brunches, dinner parties, and more. 50+ illustrations.

Publishers Description
If a skimpy salad doused with a tasteless dressing is your idea of lowfat dining, hold on to your calorie counter. Lowfat cooking has come a long way. In fact, many of your high-calorie food favorites have an enticing, "healthier" equivalent in a lowfat version. Think chili. Potato pancakes. Or even cheesecake. It's true. If done right, bite for bite, lowfat cooking can be as generous in flavor as its high-fat counterpart. And once you (and your body) have begun to sample the benefits of a lowfat menu, chances are you'll turn lowfat cooking into a permanent lifestyle change.

With the help of Lynn Fischer, celebrated host of two TV cooking shows, "Lowfat Cooking For Dummies" helps you prepare meals worthy of a high-class health spa. In practically no time, you'll see how simple and fun it is to slenderize your kitchen pantry and get your cooking regimen in gear. From finding hidden fats to reading labels, the book gives you the skinny on: Cholesterol, saturated fats, trans fatty acids--what they are and where they come fromWhat "lowfat," "fat-free," and "reduced fat" really meanTips on stocking a lowfat pantry--including what canned and packaged foods to keep (including pretzels, popcorn, chips, and cookies )What oils, condiments, and flavorings to use--including a table of oils indicating saturated fat content and a comprehensive list of herbs and their usesMeat, poultry, fish, and eggs--tips on finding sources of lowfat red meat, what lean really means, and telling "good" eggs from "bad"

Plus "Lowfat Cooking For Dummies" brings you quickly up to speed on the joys of lowfat cooking--making your transition into a lowfat menu as delicious as it is painless. You'll reexperience old favorites like French Toast or a BLT or Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and discover how cutting calories in no way impairs taste. And you'll get a fresh reinvigorating take on traditionally healthy salads, as well as a host of entrees: One-pot Soups and Casseroles--including Chicken Soup with Vegetables, Lentil Soup, Chili, and Pork and Garbanzo Bean StewFish and shellfish--including Cod with Ginger-Orange Sauce, Herbed Mahi Mahi, and Shrimp and Crab GumboMeat and poultry--including Meat Loaf, Sweet and Sour Pork, and Roast ChickenSandwiches--including Chicken Salad, Deviled Ham, Egg Salad, Feta Cheese Hamburgers, and Grilled Cheese

The book is chockfull of hints on how to turn usually high-fat fare like Hollandaise Sauce and White Sauce into something light and tasty. Desserts such as Strawberry Cheesecake and Peach and Blackberry Tart can, at last, be enjoyed as a guilt-free pleasure. Brimming with suggestions for healthy, lowfat eating on every page.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lowfat Cooking for Dummies?

Great recipes!  Jan 3, 2007
I've actually had this book for many years and still use the recipes even if I am not trying to cook low fat. I used to love watching Lynn Fischer on TV. Yes, that's right...she had a television cooking show WAYYYYY before Food Network appeared. She always gave great advice and tips for cooking in a low fat manner and her dishes were always appetizing. So, when I decided to try cooking lowfat, I chose her book as one that I liked. Although there aren't that many recipes, she gives great advice on how to trim your own recipes and is very positive throughout the book. Mine and my family's favorite recipe is her sweet and sour pork. It is delicious!
 
Good lowfat recipes!  Oct 20, 2001
This book contains recipes that are low in fat and low in calories, because its not just the fat you need to watch, its the calories too that sneak up on you when you least expect them!

Salad dressings, bakery items, chicken meals, side dishes, you name it, its here and they're all surprisingly good! Most times as everyone knows, lowfat sometimes means its lost alot of the taste, but in this case the chef shows you how to add certain ingredients in order to make up for the fat loss and add lots of taste! There is information on losing weight and a calorie chart with fat index. Also information on portion control. Chalked full of great recipes and tasty treats, this is a great and easy to follow resource, as is all of the 'dummie' books.

 
Very good resource  Mar 30, 2000
This is a very good source of information on low fat cooking. My family responded pleasently to many of the recipies although some were a little bland. The important thing is that this book teaches you how to make your own low fat dishes by substituting the stuff with high fat content in your favorite recipies with low fat ingredients. I especially liked the section devoted to learning and using herbs-- an important mainstay in any lowfat diet.
