HELP...Just came back from my yearly checkup and need to drop 50 lbs. Since I am in SS2 I have been practicing on wonderful PC recipes (many loaded with calories). I have an idea of a theme show of Lite Cooking Recipes. Does anyone have any suggestions of appetizers, main dishes and desserts for this? Doctor wants to see me in 30 days so this is serious.

For my light shows I like to do the Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza (It's Good for You Cookbook) and the Heavenly Lemon Angel Cake (All the Best Cookbook). They are both very yummy!

You could also try these from the All The Best Cookbook ~
Spring Pasta Stir Fry
Summer Tortellini Salad
Oriental Vegetable Pizza
Lemon Pepper Crab Canapes
Apple Berry Salsa
All of the above have a low-fat version.
The Summer Tortellini salad is a favorite of mine. :)
I hope this helps !!

I double the vote on the Salmon Cakes with Cool Lime Sauce... that sauce is outstanding!!!

I also LOVE , in the "IT's Good for You" cookbook... the Skinny Chicken Stroganoff, and the Quick Chicken Curry!!! YUMMMY!
BUT with the Chicken Curry, I use regular Coconut milk, not lowfat... sorry, I've tried it both ways, and it is 10 times better with regular coconut milk.

Someone out there may have the old discontinued "lite'' cookbook... they discontinued it about four years ago, and I never got it. I can't remember what it was called , but it was a smaller cookbook, not spiral bound... something like "lite and lively"...? I don't remember.

I was thinking it would be fun to do a "Recipes to Die(t) For" show and choose ones from the It's Good For You cookbook. Maybe the california wraps and lively lemon bars. Or something summery and cool.
