My Thoughts-

My family is always looking for recipes to help us stay fit and healthy. The layout of the book was great. Each recipe is easy to follow and includes tips,nutritional breakdown, portion size and of course the calories saved when substituting healthier ingredients. We made the fudgy chocolate brownies and they were quite tasty. There are some recipes that she uses a sugar substitute but does not recommend a brand to use. My family uses apple sauce and Stevia as a substitute for sugar when needed. This is a great book for everyone who wants to live a little healthier.
