SLOW COOKER – Without the Calories – takes all the hassle out of eating the low cal way.
From the feedback I’ve been given, I know that lots of you love your electric slow cooker, but have had trouble finding healthy recipes that taste good too. So I set myself the task of creating the best possible book to satisfy that need and in doing so I’ve learnt more about slow cooking than I thought possible.
For instance, the variety of meals you can prepare in a slow cooker is enormous – everything from succulent pulled pork, to a hearty casserole, quiche, light sponge puddings, crème caramel and even yogurt. What’s more, it’s particularly useful for those of us watching our weight as food can be cooked in bulk and frozen in handy portions, or quickly prepared on a busy day, meaning there is always a healthy choice available.
As with the other books in the Without The Calories series, I’ve reworked ingredients to reduce as many calories as possible, while still trying hard to keep the flavour and appetite appeal, helping you lose weight in the most delicious and simple way.
I’m not going to make rash promises about how many pounds you will shed, but I do know that when it comes to losing weight, finding foods that give you pleasure and fit into your lifestyle are the key to success. When you eat well without obsessing over rapid weight-loss, it’s easier to relax and lose what you need to comfortably- and safely.
To help everyone enjoy these reinvented dishes, I’ve used easy-to-find ingredients and given clear, simple cooking instructions. There’s also freezer information included where appropriate, so you know which dishes you can store safely for another day. If you’re already following a diet plan, you’ll find additional nutritional information at the back of the book that’ll help you work my recipes into your week.
And, if you’re stuck for inspiration and have a few pounds to lose, try my 123 Plan. It couldn’t be easier.
