We’ve got exciting new recipes to brighten your 2012 mealtime line-up in our latest eCookbook, Lighten Up! 20 Tasty & Healthy Recipes for the New Year from Mr. Food. As many of us resolve to eat healthier in the new year, the Mr. Food Test Kitchen is here to help you lighten up with quick and easy recipes that will tantalize your taste buds without tipping the scale. You’ll soon learn that eating lighter doesn’t have to mean giving up on all of our favorite foods!
With these everyday recipes made lighter, you can enjoy all your favorite dishes without de-railing your healthy resolutions. From healthy appetizers & bites and soups & salads to easy main dish recipes and light easy desserts, these great-tasting recipes are also simple to make, so it's even easier to eat smart this year. Our lighter versions taste decadent but will keep you on track, whether you're looking to lose weight or simply eat healthier. We've also got the tools you need to make healthy choices: not only do we include an informative guide on sizing up a serving and a portion, but each recipe in our Lighten Up! free eCookbook features complete nutritional information. Enjoy your favorite recipes without sacrificing flavor — these 20 tasty & healthy recipes will start your new year out on the right foot!
Healthy snack recipes may be diet-friendly, but they're also known for being boring and flavorless. Not so fast! Smart snacking doesn't need to be bland if you choose the right snacks. The Mr. Food Test Kitchen prefers to put a healthy spin on our favorite appetizers for llight bites that taste like the real thing! You’ll become a believer once you nibble on one of our tasty appetizers, like Parmesan Spinach Dip (page 1). When you taste the traditional Buffalo wing flavor in our Buffalo Chicken Strips (page 2), you'll swear you're eating the bad-for-you version we love to indulge in. For a change-of-pace nibbler, don't miss our Texas Caviar (page 3) that's more fun than fancy, but certainly tasty! Try one of these deceptively healthy recipes for delicious appetizers and bites that will surely be gobbled up by friends and family alike!
Satisfy your comfort-food cravings with these hearty, healthy soups and delicious, light salads. Soup and salad may be standard "diet fare" for many trying to watch their weight, but that doesn't mean they can't be packed with flavor and super satisfying. Our latest eCookbook features warming ways to start your meal like Mexican Tortilla Soup (page 5) and main-dish healthy salads like Fruit-full Tossed Chicken Salad (page 8) that’ll satisfy your hunger and your cravings, even if you’re watching your waistline. Soups and salads are often served before a main course, but you'll find our healthy recipes can be served as a meal all by itself. No more boring healthy recipes you'll tire of in no time - we’re betting you’ll love our change-of-pace soups and salads!
With the New Year is upon us, many of us are making resolutions to eat lighter. The easy recipes and tips in our new Lighten Up! free eCookbook will help start your year on a great-tasting and healthy note. Sure, you may have indulged over the holidays — if you’re anything like us, you’ve been enjoying all of your favorite holiday dishes for weeks now! But a new year means a new leaf, and many of us are looking to jumpstart our healthy eating. These satisfying recipes from the Mr. Food Test Kitchen will make it easy to stick to those resolutions. Plus, with nutritional information for each recipe and a guide on serving & portion control, you'll have everything you need to make smart decisions about your meals.

When you've gotta get dinner on the table, it can be hard to fight the urge to serve up usual weeknight fare like heavy pastas and cheesey casseroles. But sometimes the difference between a quick dinner and a quick and healthy dinner is a few simple shortcuts. Our Guilt-Free Beef Stroganoff (page 14) uses reduced fat ingredients and no-yolk noodles so we can enjoy a rich and creamy Beef Stroganoff dish without cheating on our diet. The key to Barbecue Turkey Loaves (page 11) is ground turkey breast and old-fashioned rolled oats, which makes a heart-healthier version of meat loaf. And for a kid-friendly healthy dinner, our baked version Not Fried "Fried" Chicken (page 15) tastes just like it was fried in a pan, minus all the guilt.
Who can resist dessert? Especially during the holidays, a month-long tribute to everything sugary and sweet. But resolving to eat healthier during the New Year doesn't mean you can’t enjoy sweets! We’ve got everything from a sinful Peanut Butter Cup Pie (page 17) to Lighter Chocolate Chip Cookies (page 20). These light desserts recipes are all your favorite treats made healthier, so you can indulge your craving without remorse. The best part? You'll even have some calories left to spare after devouring these delicious dessert sensations. When your sweet tooth is screaming for something rich and flavorful, don't reach for the store-bought snacks — whip up one of these homemade quick light recipes!

If you want a lemony-herb fish dish, that's packed with flavor and easy to make, then you've got to try our All-American Fish-in-Foil. We used catfish, because it's firm enough to stay together and delicate enough to wrap it in foil. It's a perfectly seasoned, easy-as-can be dinner that you're going to love to share with family and friends.
