If you’re constantly on the lookout for tasty and nutritious – but low calorie – options for yours or your family’s meals, The Skinnytaste Cookbook is for you. Gina Homolka is a popular and trusted cook in America and now introduces her much-anticipated cookbook.
This book is full of recipes that will delight your palate and you’ll have a hard time convincing people that they’re low calorie. Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken and Broccoli is creamy and filling, but only has 420 calories for each serving.
Cookies that are indulgent but low-fat and low-calorie can make your day sweeter without adding fat to the fat cells. Since the Skinnytaste Cookbook was first published, Holmolka has gathered followers that she listens to and finds new ways to please with her brilliant cooking ideas.
There are recipes for vegetarians, gluten-free meals, meals you can easily freeze and those you can cook in a crockpot or grill. The calorie count is there and so is the carb and nutrient information.
Everyone loves to see pictures of the actual recipes in a cookbook and this book has aimed to please. All the recipes make great meals for family and those who would never diet a day in their lives.
Holmolka doesn’t try to sell products she uses in her recipes, but she does mention specific items when she finds one that works best for a recipe. King Author flour is one product that every good cook knows and uses and that she used in the recipe.
The recipes in The Skinnytaste Cookbook aren’t meant for just dieting – they’re all healthy as well as satisfying and delicious. You may recognize some old unhealthy recipes that have been transformed with healthy ingredients and that taste even better.
A sampling of the recipes in her book includes French Bread Pizza Supreme, Pear and Brie Grilled Cheese, Silky Chocolate Cream Pie, Loaded Nacho Potato Skins and Lasagna using zucchini strips instead of pasta.
If those dishes don’t whet your appetite, nothing will. There are approximately 350 pages in this cookbook that are filled with recipes and photos of the finished dish. If you have a seasoned or aspiring cook as a friend or family member, The Skinnytaste Cookbook is a wonderful gift idea.
