Book Review: Skinnytaste Cookbook

Get the recipes everyone is talking about in the debut cookbook from the wildly popular blog Skinnytaste

Gina Homolka is America’s most trusted home cook when it comes to easy, flavorful recipes that are miraculously low-calorie and made from all-natural, easy-to-find ingredients. Her blog, Skinnytaste is the number one go-to site for slimmed down recipes that you’d swear are anything but. It only takes one look to see why people go crazy for Gina’s food: cheesy, creamy Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken and Broccoli with only 420 calories per serving, breakfast dishes like Make-Ahead Western Omelet "Muffins" that truly fill you up until lunchtime, and sweets such as Double Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies that are low in sugar and butter-free but still totally indulgent.

The Skinnytaste Cookbook features 150 amazing recipes: 125 all-new dishes and 25 must-have favorites. As a busy mother of two, Gina started Skinnytaste when she wanted to lose a few pounds herself. She turned to Weight Watchers for help and liked the program but struggled to find enough tempting recipes to help her stay on track. Instead, she started “skinny-fying” her favorite meals so that she could eat happily while losing weight.

With 100 stunning photographs and detailed nutritional information for every recipe, The Skinnytaste Cookbook is an incredible resource of fulfilling, joy-inducing meals that every home cook will love.

As part of my "Make Me Better" campaign, I'm about to embark on a major weight loss journey. As part of that, I've been looking for cookbooks that make healthier cooking options feel accessible. So, when this book came along, the cover copy sold me. On top of that, there's the cover itself. If the cover of this book alone doesn't draw you in, I don't know what to say. While I've never had grits that I enjoyed, this picture alone makes me willing to try them just one more time. I am thrilled to say that the book lives up to that cover. The photos inside will have you drooling and any cookbook that my fourteen year old going, "Oooh...we should make that one." is a winner in my world. The recipes are easy to follow and I didn't see any ingredients that can't be found at pretty much any local supermarket. I can't wait until we get into the kitchen to try out more yummy recipes!
