Southern food is oh-so-good, but it can be oh-so-unhealthful as well.

Southern Living is out with a new book, “The Slim Down South Cookbook: Eating Well and Living Healthy in the Land of Biscuits and Bacon” by Carolyn O’Neil, ($24.95, hardcover, Oxmoor House) and the title pretty much sums it up.

The recipes are low-cal takes on Southern food classics and modern versions as well. Try this recipe for glazed salmon with stir-fried vegetables for a light and flavorful dinner.
