Question Online Recipe Sites

I'm currently in the process of trying to learn/teach myself how to cook healthier, but I'm trying to do it without going out and buying a bunch of expensive diet cook books. Can you guys recommend some good recipe websites that include all the info about each recipe.... i.e. I'm looking for websites that offer SIMPLE (but good) recipes that tell you how many calories are in each serving, etc, and doesn't require spices from the lost island of Atlantis or something?

Anyone?

PS - If anyone has any good cookbooks that offer the same (basic, easy to make recipes to live healthy with, including all nutritional info), I'd like to hear those too, because eventually I WILL start buying a few. Just kinda broke right now.

allrecipes.com

I love that site - gives you all the nutritional info. Plus you can search by ingredient if you want and even list ingredients you DON'T want in the search criteria!

Sorry for jumping in on your board... just had to plug my recipe source!

That's a few that I like that I can think of off hand. But you can just google - healthy chicken recipes, healthy salads, healthy veggies, etc.. and a slew of great sites will come up.

Cooking delicious, healthy foods has become a passion of mine. I am excited for you to take this step.

You should also be able to check out cookbooks from your local library!

One of my favourites is Canadian Living.com. The recipes are tested and have all the nutritional info.

^^she doesn't have calorie counts, or nutritional values, but she has great ideas for healthy, DIFFERENT treats. A lot are meatless, most of them are kid friendly. Forget how I found her, but she's got a hot pink hummus that looks awesomely good!

I am OBSESSED with smittenkitchen.com. It is a blog where this woman makes the most yummy-looking things. It doesn't have the nutritional info but it might inspire you! And every recipe i've tried has worked great. Fun project! Good luck.

Allrecipes.com is GREAT....but double check the calorie counts! Some of them are so far from right it's crazy. I also like www.tasteofhome.com...not all recipes have calorie counts, but a LOT of them do.
