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.

I definitely prefer Gina' s blog over this cookbook, where there are more options for food that I will actually eat. The selection of recipes is small per section (for example, only 16 recipes for poultry), which doesn't leave a lot of options if you don't eat or like certain foods. I wasn't impressed with any of these recipes, and will return without making anything (so can't comment on flavor). Her blog is excellent though!

I've found a lot of great recipes in Gina Homolka's books. She's also quite responsive on social media should you have questions regarding any of the recipes.

This book has some delicious and healthy recipes, great photos and a great introduction in the front. Highly recommended.

They're probably 'skinny' by American standards.
If you've ever eaten a meal in the USA, the portions are huge.

I found a few appealing recipes in this book, but really question the 'skinny' in the title. A lot of the recipes use more oil and sugar than necessary, and I didn't find that the calorie counts were all that low, especially when you translate the count to a normal size helping. I'm on a diet, and didn't find even one recipe I'd recommend to dieters. The recipes that appealed to me were saved for AFTER I've reached my goal weight.
