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.
The Skinnytaste Cookbook has so many wonderful recipes in it, and guess what? You can't even tell they are healthy for you. I'm serious! Well some of them you can, but the majority of them you can't. We recently tried the Too-Good-to-Be-True Baked Potato Soup (my fiance and I love soup) and it was amazing! A lot of flavor and get this, it has cauliflower in it. Yep. And the only way that I usually eat my cauliflower is swimming in ranch or in a broccoli salad, where the broccoli dominates the cauliflower. I can't wait to try out the rest of the recipes!
I highly recommend this cookbook for everyone!
Each month millions of readers visit Skinnytaste and learn how easy it is to cook healthy recipes for the whole family. Her work has been featured on Fitness Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, Glamour.com, Oprah.com, among other media outlets.
