All-American Beef ChiliA delicious fix-it-and-forget-it recipe, which I've made even easier by using canned beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and tomato juice. The chili is best made a day in advance to allow the flavors to meld. It can also be frozen in single serving portions for easy weeknight dinners. Serve over brown rice, quinoa, or your favorite grain. Possible garnishes include diced avocados, grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese, fat-free sour cream, diced ripe tomatoes, sliced scallions, and chopped cilantro. They are all listed in the Calorie Combos.

More Than a Cookbook-A One-of-a-Kind Toolkit to Help You Make Smart Calorie Decisions Every Time You Eat
You know that balancing the calories you take in and burn off is the foundation of weight control. But actually achieving that balance between eating and exercise is a daily challenge for most of us. Now, The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook provides a fresh, sane approach for everyone seeking good health-and great food.
Here is an essential repertoire of 200 smart recipes-nutrient-rich, delicious, foolproof, and ideal for busy individuals and families. Every recipe tells you its calorie count-and also tells you how many minutes of walking or jogging it takes for a woman or man to burn those calories off, so you'll be able to visualize what calories mean as never before. All the recipes are below 400 calories per serving-and most are below 200!
The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook also delivers:

Lots of information and healthy recipes-not a quick fix diet, but a great reference and reminder that it is far easier to consume calories than to burn them off." -Dr. Michelle Harvie, coauthor of The 2-Day Diet "The book is beautifully designed and illustrated, exceptionally easy to read, and scientifically sound. Even better, the recipes are easy to follow and look delicious." -Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, author of What to Eat "I like The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook because it's not a fad diet book and no food groups are eliminated. It encourages us to really look at what we're eating-and in so doing to take the first step to making healthy lifestyle changes." -Geo
