To interpret the nutrition analysis in Cooking Light, use the figures listed in the chart (click the link below to download) as a daily reference guide. One size doesn't fit all, so take lifestyle, age, and circumstances into consideration. For example, pregnant or breast-feeding women need more protein, calories, and calcium. Go to choosemyplate.gov for your own individualized plan.
