Magnus Mandalora never thought he would leave the safe confines of the small homely village of Lower Kertoob. He certainly never expected to end up in the middle of a long-running war between the saintly Cherines and the beastly Glurgs. But when circumstance places him in such a dubious position, he finds himself on a rollicking adventure where nothing is quite as it seems.
Magnus Opum is an epic fantasy that's slightly skewed - Tolkien with a twist.
Of course, we call want to get the most out of our snack foods, and some snacks can be nutritional and satisfying at the same time. Other foods (often called junk foods) have little or no nutritional value…we just eat them because they taste good.
Nonetheless, lower-calorie versions of even junk foods exist. Making food at home can decrease the calorie count or fat content significantly, eliminate a lot of unnecessary additives and preservatives, and enhance the flavor and portion size.
In this cookbook, every effort has been made to find snack foods that are filling but have fewer calories and/or less fat than their commercial versions. You may even enjoy these more than ones you buy in the store!
Important note: this is not a cookbook with zero calorie (or near-zero calorie) snacks. Those looking for such snacks may be better off buying 100-calorie packs of snack foods from the store. The very nature of these snack foods and their ingredients mean that the calorie count will never be zero, or even close to it.
Also, these recipes are not necessarily low-carb. Some have higher carbs because they include sugars, but in a lot of cases they have higher carbs due to ingredients such as milk, yogurt, or fruit, which are GOOD, healthy carbs.
