Heard about clean eating recently. Haven't gotten it yet, but heard it does have good stuff. As to hard ingredients, I can relate, I'm out in the country and have to drive to get anything and even then it's tough. I do like turkey muffins - I've used a recipe I found on sparkpeople - it has stuffing mix in it - carrots sound good.
I LOVE cooking light. Have you tried the meat loaf that you make in muffin tins? You add shredded carrots to it which keeps the meat moist. Yummy!! I make them with turkey rather than beef and they are just as good. Plus, they freeze well.
I also love Clean Eating magazine, but I've found that they use some ingredients that are very difficult to find, like agave nectar.

I like the Cooking Light Cookbook so far; recipe lists are mostly short (but they do have some ingredients which are not necessarily staples - I don't mind trying new things, but when the budget is tight...) and they are generally quick to make thus far. The recipes do tend to use convenience foods (i.e., buying bags of precut vegetables - I'm not doing that - I'll chop my own - but those do save time)
I love the companys coming cookbooks. They have a couple light recipe ones too. They use ingredients that a person usually has and they are so tasty. I alter the regular recipes to make them healthier.

Over the years I have collected a nice variety of low fat, light and healthy cooking cookbooks. I love the weight watchers ones although I do not follow their diet plan (I do SP!!**go sparks!**) I do love their recipes because they are simple and stuff you have around the house. My mom just got me a subscription to light and tasty or something like that.. from the taste of home mag. line. Its pretty good. I do not like the cooking light magazines.. the items are too hard to find and too many ads. Many times I end up using my Better Homes and Gardens cook book (MY FAVORITE) and remaking the recipes to make them healthier. Ex: I use their chili recipe and replace beef with turkey. Its great that way! Thanks for sharing and keep us filled in on the new cookbook. Are the ingredients easy to find??

Cooking Light fresh food fast. Picked this cookbook up - it has lots of pictures and I need pictures for inspiration. Recipes I have used so far have been wonderful. It's particularly good in helping me use some healthy fats. I've been so scared of fats that I end up eating a handful of nuts at the end of the day to get to my fat minimum. Anyway, does anyone else use cookbooks still?
