Another great cookbook!
I received The Skinny Taste Cookbook in the mail to review. The book is written by Gina Homolka, a mom who wanted to lose weight. Her conundrum was making meals that would help her lose weight, while still being something her family wanted to eat. Her first stop was Weight Watchers, but she was not happy with the recipes. She instead decided to take her recipes and rework them so they were calorie friendly. The result is this cookbook. The recipes look yummy..(haven't tried any yet), the pictures are gorgeous, and best of all she includes nutritional information. This is very important to me as I have to watch my sodium.
The recipes are geared to the home cook, and she includes vegetarian, gluten-free, slow cooker and freezer friendly meals, all healthy versions of your favorites. The beginning of the book does a good job of explaining her philosophy, what good fats are, what healthy is, how to make over your kitchen, and good choices for your pantry. With chapters on breakfast, soups, sandwiches,main dish salads, poultry, lean meat fish, meatless mains,sides and deserts, there is something for everybody.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
