(The) Essential Low-Fat Cookbook:
Good Healthy Eating for Every Day
by Antony Worrall Thompson
It's a well-known fact that fat, be it butter, cream, oil, or even crispy bacon, is a key ingredient when it comes to adding flavor. Another well-known fact is that saturated fat is a major contributor to heart disease, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and gallstones, not to mention an ever-widening waist. Having to watch his own diet and wanting to dispel the myth that low-fat food means boring food, acclaimed chef Antony Worrall Thompson set himself the challenge to give healthy food a much needed makeover. What results is a culinary world tour of his favorite dishes all tried, tested and tweaked to make them both low-fat and delicious.
Whether you want to cut down on fat for a specific health problem or simply want to improve your diet, Anthony's latest release ‘The Essential Low Fat Cookbook’ is for you. Packed with over 180 tempting recipes you'll actually want to cook and eat, each one has been analyzed by top dietician Juliette Kellow and offers at-a- glance nutritional information and healthy meal plans to get you started. What's more, no recipe contains more than 3% fat, with many as little as 1.5%.
Easy and inspirational, there are chapters on breakfasts, light lunches and dinners, and main courses, plus snacks to curb those cravings. You don't have to give up all the things you love, after all not all fat is bad fat; with tips and tricks even comfort classics like pizza, burgers, chili, and tacos can become healthier options, without you even noticing the difference.
