  • Your question is pretty broad, but some suggestions are to take any given recipe and substitute its ingredients for lower fat/calorie options. Examples are skim milk, low fat butter, liquid eggs instead of a whole egg, low fat cheese, more veggies and fruit, lean meats & proteins, etc. Good luck!

  • The best and easiest place to find what you're looking for is "Light & Tasty" Magazine and their cookbooks. You can find this magazine in Walmart or pretty much any place that has a good magazine section. You can also go to and check it out on their website. They'll even send you a sample issue free. It's got lots of good recipes with ingredients that can be found in your local grocery store and they have ideas for family menus. Good luck!
