A few years ago, I purchased the cookbook 500 Best Healthy Recipes by Lynn Roblin. I was looking for a cookbook that had easy and healthy recipes. Let me tell you, this is the best cookbook I own! Every single recipe I have made out of this book has been delicious and easy. I love that the nutrition information is listed on each recipe, so you know just how many calories, fat, sodium etc are in each dish. Most recipes are very low in calorie, but the quality of taste does not suffer! I also love that real, fresh and whole ingredients make up most of the dishes in this book. I have been trying to get away from processed and packaged foods in my cooking. If you are also wanting to start eating real food, this is a great resource!
Some of our favorites from this book are:
Tortilla bean salad with creamy salsa dressing
Chinese lemon chicken w/red peppers and snow peas
Spaghetti squash with vegetables and tomato sauce
Spicy rice, bean and lentil casserole
