Description: Stressed" spelled backwards is "desserts," but that's no longer a problem now that Healthy Homestyle Desserts has arrived. Award-winning nutritionist and best-selling author Evelyn Tribole uses the same straightforward format readers loved in her best-selling Healthy Homestyle Cooking (now with nearly 700,000 copies in print), expertly trimming the calories and fat from more than 150 scrumptious desserts. Her easy Black Forest Brownies and Very Blueberry Swirl Cheese-cake are truly desserts to die for, while Crispy Orange Lace Cookies bake in 4 minutes and have only 40 calories each. Gorgeous full-color photographs illustrate that these healthy treats look every bit as good as they taste. 

A nutrition scorecard gives before-and-after information on calories, fat, and cholesterol; flavor and health tips are sprinkled throughout, and helpful indexes categorize recipes according to fat and calorie content. "Best of all," the editor in chief of Shape magazine writes in the book's foreword, "Evelyn does not compromise in the taste department." As proof, her low-fat muffins placed second out of seventy in a Washington Post taste test. 

The self-confessed possessor of a world-class sweet tooth, Evelyn Tribole says, "One of the reasons I decided to create a healthy dessert cookbook was that I was so tired of 'air food' desserts, where all the fun and satisfaction were taken out with the calories." In Healthy Homestyle Desserts, only the guilt has been taken out. Indulge with impunity!
