At Canadian Living, we believe that healthy, calorie-conscious eating doesn’t mean giving up delicious meals or leaving the table feeling hungry.
The trusted experts in the Canadian Living Test Kitchen have created a new collection of more than 90 flavour-packed, satisfying recipes for dinners you’ll enjoy cooking and eating – all under 400 calories. How did we do it? A simple substitution here, a clever cooking technique there, and sometimes leaving out a high-calorie ingredient the dish just doesn’t need. But we never cut back on great taste.
Whether you’re watching your diet carefully or simply want to eat better more often, you’ll find satisfying pasta dishes and stir-fries, easy meal-in-a-bowl soups and stews, and dinner salads that will fill you up. For times when you’d like a guilt-free treat to round off dinner, we’ve even included our favourite new desserts that are 200 calories or less per serving. All of our recipes are Tested-Till-Perfect, so you can be confident they will always taste as good on your plate as they did in the Canadian Living Test Kitchen.
More 400-Calorie Dinners is a companion volume to 2015’s best-selling 400-Calorie Dinners, with all-new recipes in a compact, budget-friendly edition. The cookbook, part of Canadian Living’s Essentials Collection, features mouthwatering colour photographs throughout, created by some of Canada’s top food photographers and food stylists.
