Start with a main dish that’s lower in calories, pair with simple roasted or steamed vegetables or a salad, and you’re on the road to a healthy dinner any night of the week.

At Cooking Light, we’re not much for counting calories. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet is all about balance. But there are times when counting on a lower-calorie main dish just makes sticking to a healthy eating plan easier. Start with any of these simple main dishes, all ringing in at 250 calories or less, and pair with a salad or steamed vegetable, and you can rest easy that a healthy meal waits at the end of the day.
Low-calorie for Cooking Light should never mean low-flavor, so we’ve stuck to our motto of “Making Healthy Taste Great” by adding small amounts of high-impact ingredients—like pancetta in this pizza—for maximum flavor.
