Super-simple, mega-satisfying meals that cover your every craving and desire, from wholesomely hearty breakfasts to decadent dinners that won’t break the (calorie) bank.

For people looking to shed pounds and live more healthfully, eating meals in the 400-calorie range is your secret weapon to weight-loss success. Not only do these meals fuel your energy, rev metabolism, and keep you feeling full longer, but they also help you stick to a daily caloric range of 1200 to 1500 total calories, which is ideal for tipping the scales in your favor. With Quick and Easy 400-Calorie Recipes, you can reap the benefits of these low-calories meals without spending hours in the kitchen.

Perfect for anyone trying to pursue weight loss while living a busy life, this book works by expertly focusing on nutrient-dense, low-calorie ingredients that you can eat in abundance—such as leafy greens, artichokes, and berries—and combining them with smaller portions of equally filling foods like whole grains, beans, eggs, and poultry.

Featuring recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the recipes include:

  • Strawberry Dream Pancakes
  • Cheese and Vegetable Frittata
  • Cool and Curried Rice Salad
  • More than the Usual Shrimp Remoulade
  • Sirloin Steak with Golden Fried Zucchini
  • Honey Fried Chicken Dinner
  • Better for You Beef Stroganoff
  • Apple Cranberry Stuffed Pork Roast with Sweet Potatoes
  • Salmon and Vegetables Teriyaki
  • Savory Lentil Pie
  • Pasta with Mushroom and Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

Quick and Easy 400-Calorie Recipes will help you lose weight without letting cooking and planning weight-loss friendly meals take over your life.
Super-simple, mega-satisfying meals that cover your every craving and desire, from wholesomely hearty breakfasts to decadent dinners that won’t break the (calorie) bank.

Wow, this has everything a person needs who is following a low calorie diet - just like me!! This book covers all aspects from breakfasts to salads to stews and stir-fries. Absolutely brilliant and so helpful to those doing their best to lose weight.

Thanks to Quarto Publishing Group and NetGalley for allowing me an advanced copy to read in exchange for my open and honest review. As always, my reviews will also be posted on Amazon, Goodreads and Waterstones and interaction on Facebook and instagram where possible.

Logue assembles a varied collection of recipes that provides broad appeal and gives hope to those of us trying to make healthy improvements to our diet. I felt like I could stay on a 400 calorie/meal diet for an extended period of time with so many appealing choices. The best part is that the portions are generous. My only concern is that many recipes are medium-to-high in carbs.

I was really interested in reading this cookbook because I’m always lost when it comes to tasty healthy meals. This book had plenty to choose from and I really enjoyed the fact that there was a lot of information included about nutrition and what it is we should be looking for in our food.

Some of my favourite recipes that were included are
Strawberry dream pockets
Honey fried chicken dinner
Easy slow cooker enchiladas casserole
And the Stuffed shells Florentine

Definitely some great recipes and I look forward to testing some of these out!
