Cutting down on calories, fat, and sodium is easier than ever before with the microwave oven. Foods cook with less fat, retain more nutrients and flavor, and are ready in one-fourth the time of conventionally cooked foods. Karen Dwyer has developed more than two hundred simple, tasty recipes for fish, chicken, lean meats, vegetables, breads, muffins, even desserts-each with fewer than 250 calories per serving. Each recipe also features a nutritional-analysis chart lists the number of calories, the diabetic exchanges, and the per-serving amounts of carbohydrate, protein, fiber, cholesterol, and sodium. Dozens of tips throughout the book help even beginners to master microwave cooking techniques and to enjoy healthy, delicious, easy meals that take minutes to prepare.
