Light Cooking


Review by Debbie Mazo


Eating light doesn't have to be painful. Find out about good eating without the guilt at Light Cooking, a site full of ideas for preparing delicious meals that are low in fat and cholesterol but high in flavor.

Light eaters will love the recipes that are available at this easy-to-use web site. Featuring a Recipe of the Week (you can receive an e-mail reminder when the recipe is updated) as well as a complete recipe archive, you'll find all kinds of variations on perennial favorites. If you've got to have your guacamole, try the low-fat alternative found in the Appetizers archive. Without the bells and whistles, this simple recipe serves up a flavor using fresh ingredients rather than heavy or spicy ingredients that cover up taste.

Light Cooking A little bit of knowledge goes a long way in guaranteeing success in the kitchen. For some tips on zapping the fat from your menu, graze over to the Tip of the Day where you'll find helpful hints like how to choose a light margarine for cooking. If you want more, check out the saged advice with everything from Microwave Tips to Holiday Tips in the Tips archive.

Children can also reap the benefits of healthy dining. In the Kids page, you can introduce your children to healthy dining with kid-friendly recipes, cooking secrets, jokes, and links to other favorite kid sites.

For answers to your burning low-fat, low-cholesterol questions, submit your query to Momstone who promises to respond or find an expert who can. You can also take advantage of the active message board, where readers submit questions and offer suggestions for the best in light alternatives. A must-visit for seekers of the good life, Light Cooking leads the way when it comes to healthy living, which is all about moderation and not sacrifice.
