      I enjoy this magazine a lot. I have gotten useful information on nutrition that doesn't take a doctor to understand. The recipes are well planned out with nutrition information included. I have been able to turn a few dishes into vegetarian, but have had difficulty with others. The articles are well written and from good sources.

      I subscribed to Cooking Light for what the cover advertised: light cooking. I prefer to buy other magazines for my fashion, gardening, exercising and travel needs and I do not appreciate these topics in the magazine I purchase for cooking information.

            • Everyone

            THIS IS A GREAT MAGAZINE, IT GIVES YOU A TON OF GREAT RECIPES, AND MAKES YOU THINK ABOUT HOW MANY UNEEDED CALORIES YOU INGEST AT EVERY MEAL. THIS MAGAZINE ALLOWS YOU TO MAKE MOST EVERYTHING YOU WANT AND SAVE ON CALORIES. MOST ALL THE RECIPES ARE GREAT SOME (maybe 2%) ARE A LITTLE LIGHT ON FLAVOR, BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE LIGHT VERSION VERSUS THE VERY FATTENING ORIGINAL VERSION YOU SAY WELL FOR THE CALORIE SAVINGS IT WAS WORTH IT. TO BEST SUM IT UP....LIKE I SAY 98% OF THE RECIPES TASTE JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL VERSION AND YOU COOK THEM OVER AND OVER AND CAN STILL EAT YOUR DESERT AND TAKE IN FEWER CALORIES THAN THE ORIGINAL DOSH.

            Excellent recipes

            By jada2012

            from Undisclosed

            I love this magazine for its delicious recipes. Out of all the recipes I've tried, about 85-90% are a hit with my family's tastebuds and are easy to make. I have acquired a lot of excellent dishes that I cook regularly thanks to this magazine. It also provides the latest food & health information, so its a great resource. Hard to believe that the food is light.

            Cooking Light Magazine Subscription Review

            Video Transcript

            Hi, I’m Beth, a food and drink blogger from Nashville, TN. I’m always on the hunt for new and exciting things in the culinary world so I created my blog, Eat. Drink. Smile. to share all of my adventures, discoveries, inspirations, and recipes, along with a sprinkling of just about anything else that brings a smile to my face!

            I’m also a long-time subscriber to Cooking Light magazine. It all began after I gained the dreaded Freshman 15 in college. (Truth be told: It was 20!) I had to make some changes in my life, and the first step was spending several hours of my week in the gym. In addition to working out, I began to get interested in cooking for myself so I wouldn’t have to rely on the campus canteens for my meals.

            When I happened upon a copy of Cooking Light at a friend’s place, I was instantly mesmerized by the delicious looking healthy dishes that were featured. It seemed to be the perfect way to start down my new healthier path in life. Over time the magazine has made many changes, and I have to say that I’m happier with it now than ever before. With it’s bright photography and clean layout, it’s an easy and enjoyable read. I’m a very visual person, so I love that it has photos with every recipe, and is not too text heavy.

            With food as the focus, the dishes seem to come to life on the pages in front of me. While I sometimes enjoy other food magazines, many of them use exotic or hard to find ingredients in their recipes, and the steps involved in the process are too cumbersome for my busy lifestyle. What I love about Cooking Light is that the cooking techniques are usually very simple, the instructions are easy to follow, and finding the ingredients is a cinch.

            In addition to the recipes, I also really enjoy the “Editor’s Dozen” section, where there are always new products and interesting gadgets I’ve never seen before. I’ve purchased many of the featured items for both myself and to give as gifts!

            If you’re like me and love to cook then be sure to check out the current Cooking Light subscription offers at Magazines.com and follow my adventures at www.eat-drink-smile.com and @betheats on Twitter!
