Cookbook Review: The SkinnyTaste Cookbook

The Skinnytaste Cookbook- Light on Calories, Big on Flavor

The SkinnyTaste Cookbook by Gina Homolka is a wonderful resource to go to for slimmed down recipes. The cookbook has 150 recipes with 100 beautiful food photographs. I like the detailed nutritional information for each recipe because it helps keep my portions in control. These healthy meals don’t lack flavor at all! Some may thing healthy recipes = lackluster flavor, but not this cookbook. My favorite dish so far is the Bangin’ Good Shrimp. I made it a few times already, and my family loves it. I cannot wait to cook through the book. The recipes look easy to make, and the ingredients are not hard to find. I highly recommend this cookbook for someone who is looking for healthy, low-calorie recipes.
