    what's cooking on the Cooking Light Diet

    Look, we won’t sugarcoat it: If you subscribe to the Cooking Light Diet, you’re going to have to cook. After all, it ain’t the Delivery Light Diet. But you’ll be happy to know that our menus are filled with recipes that are not only delicious but also easy to cook.

    And did we mention the meals are delicious? We’re not sugarcoating that bit, either. Every day, thousands of Cooking Light Diet members delight their tastebuds with tasty meals—like the Chili-Corn Chip Pie above—fresh from their personalized meal plans. Those same members often share what’s cooking, too, courtesy of our Facebook Community.

    So rather than tell you what our members are enjoying in their home kitchens, we thought it’d be better to show you. Below, you’ll find a small sample of what Cooking Light Diet members eat each and every day. If any of those meals catch your fancy, be sure and subscribe—if you haven’t already!—via the link at the bottom of this page.

    Now, time to see what’s cooking on the Cooking Light Diet!

    Cyndie Moran

    One of our Cooking Light Diet superstars, Cyndie Moran has lost 65 pounds with the service—and maintained that loss for three years. She attributes her success to eating meals like the Sausage, Fennel, and Ricotta Pizza pictured below. Wine optional, of course.

    Donna West

    Just because this is “diet food” doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy decadent recipes you’d order at a restaurant. Ask Donna West if you don’t believe us—she recently enjoyed a divine dinner of Seared Scallops with Shallot-Herb Sauce, Grilled Green Beans, and Zucchini “Noodles.” Yes, this is diet food!

    As Community Manager of the Cooking Light Diet, I’ve often tried to practice what I preach. That means preparing healthy meals to keep me from being an emotional eater or resorting to takeout. Some of the meals I’ve eaten and enjoyed (and posted to the Community) recently include Loaded Mashed Potato Soup…
