Good Housekeeping the Supermarket Diet Cookbook

Let Good Housekeeping hold your hand, guiding you as you prepare tasty diet-friendly meals! Remember: people who eat at home tend to be thinner than those who eat out often. Even those who don’t feel comfortable in the kitchen can easily make these recipes, which have all been triple-tested in the magazine’s acclaimed kitchens. Most of the recipes take no more than 20 minutes from stove to table—less time than picking up calorie-laden take-out. And they’re also nutritious, so they not only help you drop pounds, but also could lower the risks for heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other ailments.

But of course, vitamins and minerals don’t lure dieters to the table: taste does, and these dishes are absolutely delicious. Meals such as Asparagus, Red Potato, and Romano Frittata; Salmon with Tomato-Olive Relish; Steak and Pepper Tortillas, and Tortellini with Zucchini and Radicchio are as palate-pleasing as they are weight-reducing. And leave room for desserts like Apricot Soufflé and Seattle Cappuccino Angel Food Cake.

Both veterans of the plan and newcomers will find this cookbook—which summarizes all the Supermarket Diet basics—invaluable!
