The cookbook ¡Es Fácil! Libro de Recetas is a low-fat cookbook from the Los Angeles Region Project LEAN (Leaders Encouraging Activity and Nutrition) of the Nutrition Program. 

This cookbook is a collection of easy to prepare, ethnically inspired recipes created and tested in the family kitchens of community members from Highland Park, CA.  These colorful and tasty recipes are filled with crisp fruits and vegetables, tantalizing herbs and succulent salsas.

The cookbook also includes information about cooking with herbs, food safety, how to involve children in preparing meals, common measurement conversions, common cooking substitutions and tips for stretching food dollars. Each recipe includes yield and serving size, preparation time, cost per serving, and nutrition facts for selected nutrients. Recipes are grouped according to categories: Appetizers & Beverages; Soups, Salads & Side Dishes; Main Dishes; Dessert & Pastries.
