From Mama's Table To Mine - Everybody's Favorite Comfort Foods at 350 Calories or Less Everybody's Favorite Comfort Foods at 350 Calories or Less (Paperback)
|Author: Bobby/ Clark Deen|
From the Publisher:
From beloved food personality Bobby Deen, son of Paula Deen, comes an irresistible new cookbook featuring 120 recipes of Southern comfort-food classics?all under 350 calories and jam-packed with flavor.
Raised on his mother's fried chicken and hoecakes, Bobby Deen ultimately found himself, as a young man, twenty-five pounds overweight. Unwilling to sacrifice any of his favorite foods, Bobby started tweaking the recipes he grew up on, replacing sour cream with nonfat yogurt, using lower-calorie versions of mayonnaise, cream cheese, and other high-calorie items. Even Paula herself sometimes couldn't tell the difference between the lo-cal versions and her originals?since the flavor remained top-notch.
Here you'll find a soup-to-nuts collection of many of the great dishes and flavors you've come to enjoy and expect from the Deens, but with a lot fewer calories. Every recipe has been reviewed and approved by a certified nutritionist. Yes, you can have your Gooey Less Butter Cake and eat it too . . . along with such selections as
It's a Party Guacamole ? Easy Ginger-Glazed Spare Ribs ? Yes You Can Mac and Cheese ? Cheeseburger Casserole ? Old-Fashioned Meatloaf ? Crispy Oven-Fried Chicken ? Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples ? Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes ? Bittersweet Chocolate Cheesecake ? Strawberry Streusel Cake
In addition to all these mouthwatering recipes and 65 full-color photos, you will find before/after fat and calorie counts (so you know just how many calories you're saving)?plus a week's worth of 1,500 calorie/day menus, celebration menus, healthy prep tips, weight-loss shortcuts, ideas for stocking a healthy pantry/fridge, and a section on easy high-fat/low-fat ingredient swaps.
