Our Nutrition Guidelines

Put the nutrition analysis numbers that accompany each recipe to work for you.

Sidney Fry and Mary Creel

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.
