Every recipe in this book meets at least one of the fat or cholesterol nutrition criteria described below, and most meet both fat and cholesterol criteria. Most recipes meet the loc-calorie criteria, as well. The nutrition information that accompanies each recipe, along with the special nutrition criteria flags and Diet Exchanges, will help you make healthy food choices. It is unrealistic to expect each dish or even each meal to meet all nutrition guidelines. What’s important is to look at total fat, cholesterol and calorie intake over an entire day. This chapter and the recipes that follow give you the information you need and the food you love to put together a healthy eating plan for yourself and your family.
Main-dish recipes have 10 or fewer grams of fat per serving. Low-fat side dishes and desserts have 3 or fewer grams of fat per serving.
Recipes have 90 or fewer milligrams of cholesterol per serving.
Recipes have 350 or fewer calories per serving with the exception of desserts. Low-calorie desserts have 250 or fewer calories per serving.
