Whipping Up Those Tasty Low Calorie Recipes

By Gene Fink

There are so many websites and cookbooks focused on offering low calorie recipes, there is anything but a shortage of meals to try. However, just because low calorie recipes are healthy, does not mean they are tasty! Many of those recipes featured in various places taste like cardboard! Worse yet, they call for a bunch of ingredients that you and your grocer have never heard of! Is it really possible to whip up tasty low calorie recipes that are written in the English language?

The qualities that define a delectable dish are all relative - it depends on what you have been eating for most of your life.

Let us assume that your staple diet has consisted of hamburgers and french fries since you were old enough to walk - it is going to be very challenging to accept low calorie recipes or switch to a healthy, balanced diet. Your best chance, really, would be to find recipes that require a smattering of biscuit ingredients, but that would not be too realistic in the low calorie world. Really, the best way to go about it would not be to go cold turkey and start eating cold turkey, which is a form of lean meat when used in this context - the best thing to do is add low calorie recipes and eliminate the cholesterol slowly, but surely. You will most likely be back to eating burgers and fries if you try to lose your old habits a little too quickly. But if you really think that taking a 360-degree turn on a dime is something you must do, you can cook the foods you like eating in a healthier way. You can broil meat instead of frying it, use fat free salad dressing, and other low calorie alternatives.

Having made the transition into a healthy diet would give you carte blanche to cook all the low calorie recipes you want. We did mention the numerous recipes you can find on websites and cookbooks, now it's up to you to choose your favorites. Starting online would probably be the best thing to do, as you look for potentially good ingredients to use. Good ingredients enjoy an affinity with good recipes, as a whole. For those who are beginners to this experience, then buying a plenitude of cookbooks is not something you would want to do. You should get an idea of what you like before spending money on something that may very well end up collecting dust. Furthermore, the "lean and mean" technique of selecting individual recipes is less cumbersome than doing some weightlifting exercise with those massive cookbooks. Come lunch time, you may still be scanning through your cookbook, trying to figure out what you want to cook for breakfast.

Choosing individual recipes is the way to go, really - unless you consider lifting and reading huge cookbooks to be your idea of exercise. Hours can pass by quickly as you desperately look for a good recipe to cook, and before you know it, you've skipped a meal. You can scan online and find something a lot faster.
