I have been scouring the bookshelves for a cookbook that is healthy but with recipes that don't taste like cardboard! After a few fails and some frustration I think I have finally find a keeper!!!

Cook This, Not That is ingenius!!! It goes through tons of popular foods from quesadillas, burgers, wings (all the favs) and tells you how many calories it would be at a particular chain such as Ihop or Fridays and gives you a tasty recipe that is half the calories! Can't beat that right?

The book also has my other favorite thing... pictures of every recipe! Plus all kinds of tips on eating and cooking smarter. So far I have only tried two recipes out of the book but they have been really good! I am looking forward to trying more of the recipes and will post again as I do!

Tip: The book is listed at $20 but I got it at Sams Club for $10!


  1. Um...I NEED this! Fred LOVES food, and I like to make him food...all the better if it's healthy! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Have you ever tried the Taste of Home light recipes? They have some amazing ones. I'm always doing the low-fat thing (Weight Watchers), but never can stand cardboard-tasting food. ;)

  3. I actually did get that cookbook but the few recipes I tried weren't very good. I will have to get it out and give it another try! Thanks!!!
