About Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook NEW Family Classics Collection

Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook NEW Family Classics Collection is a great value and a terrific resource for anyone who wants to learn more about how to prepare diet-friendly, healthful meals at home.

The book includes over 400 tasty and healthful comfort food recipes paired with more than 350 professional photos that are lovely to look at and that provide visual guidance for what the finished dishes should look like. When you purchase the book – which costs less than $20, you’ll also get a free subscription to Taste of Home’s Healthy Cooking magazine.

Not Like Other Diet Books

This isn’t a diet cook book that will provide you with a lot of recipes for dishes that no one in your household wants to eat. We all know, instinctively, that if we eat nothing but tiny portions grilled fish and raw vegetables we’ll likely lose weight. The problem is that most people don’t want to do that – and even if you manage to do it for a while, the weight will creep back on when you go back to your old habits.

What you’ll learn from Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook NEW Family Classics Collection, instead, is how to prepare your favorite foods in a healthful way. You’ll learn how to create the comforting casseroles, rich desserts, warming soup, juicy meatloaf and other comfort food selections that you and the other members of your family actually want to eat in a manner that’s consistent with the principles of healthy eating.

Prepare and Enjoy Tasty Recipes

The recipes provided are designed with the needs of busy home cooks in mind. They are easy to follow and are made using ingredients that are not unusually expensive of difficult to find. The instructions are clearly written so the dishes are simple to prepare. Each recipe includes complete serving size and calorie count information, which makes it easy to make wise choices come mealtime.

A few examples of recipes you’ll learn how to prepare when you read this book are:

  • Butterscotch Bliss Layered Dessert
  • Country Style Pork Loin
  • Crab Cakes with Fresh Lemon
  • Herbed Turkey Tetrazzini
  • Onion Au Gratin
  • Rocky Road Treat
  • Many other delicious – and comforting! – dishes

Diet Friendly Meal Plans

The book also provides meal plans and tips and suggestions for exercise to make it even easier to stick with your weight loss goals. If you follow the eating plans presented in the book, you’ll be able to enjoy three meals and two snacks daily for a total of 1400 calories – and you’ll enjoy every bite. What could be better than that?
