About the Author

Jennifer Reilly is a dietitian in the Washington, DC, area who is crusading to make healthy eating hip, simple, fun, and scrumptious. Her passion for plant foods started in high school after being told she'd be grounded if she became a vegetarian, and landed her in the front row of college nutrition lectures shortly after. Once she earned a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from Penn State and a registered dietetic degree from Virginia Tech, she became the managing director of The Cancer Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing cancer prevention and survival through nutrition education and research.

While at The Cancer Project, she developed the "Food for Life: Nutrition & Cooking Class Series for Cancer Prevention and Survival," which focuses on cancer-related nutrition topics and corresponding cooking demonstrations. The "Food for Life" series is now taught in over 30 states nationwide. Jennifer co-authored "The Cancer Survivor's Guide: Foods that help you fight back!" with Dr. Neal Barnard, and was on the expert panel for the "Healthy Eating for Life" book series focusing on nutrition for cancer, diabetes, children, and women's health. She has also assisted in writing nutrition textbooks, video scripts, cookbooks, and has developed countless quick and easy healthy recipes.

Jennifer has most recently been providing individual nutrition counseling, teaching group nutrition sessions and cooking classes, and organizing various educational activities at Discovery Communications, Inc. and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and she just finished writing a book for Trader Joe's called "Cooking with Trader Joe's Cookbook: Skinny Dish!" which will be released in October. She writes a nutrition blog at BitchinDietitian.com, guest blogs and moderates forums on CrazySexyLife.com, and can be found on Twitter @DCdietitian. When she's not force-feeding people beans and quinoa, she is chasing after her three young children, vegetable gardening, and playing ultimate frisbee.

I love cooking, I love grocery shopping, I especially love Trader Joe's, and I'm a vegetarian who is always looking for new, healthy and easy recipes.
K. Walters
The recipes were easy to prepare and did not require having a Trader Joe's store nearby for the ingredients.

I love vegetarian and vegan cooking, but do not always have the time or money to cook more complicated recipes. This cookbook is so practical as most of them have only 5-10 ingredients. The best part is that you can get all of the ingredients right at the local Trader Joes stores. This is a huge time saver! Also, all of the recipes include nutritional information, and tips if you would like to substitute something. This book is a huge asset to anyone who wants to make affordable, quick, healthy meals. I have recently gone back to school from working full time and every dollar counts now. I was overjoyed with this cookbook because I can make so many delicious, healthy recipes for such a low price. It would be a treasure for a family as well as the recipes are time and kid friendly! I own many cookbooks but this is destined to become one of my old time faves. You will not be disappointed!

So glad I picked this one up. Don't let the fact that the author is a registered dietitian scare you off: Yeah, she is a nutrition professional who understands the science of weight-loss and healthy eating, but she is also offering some incredibly tasty recipes that are easy enough even for a dude who is all thumbs in the kitchen (like me). I made the Thai Basil Eggplant last night, and it turned out really well--the wife asked me if I've been taking cooking classes! The book does focus on fruits, vegetables, and other low-fat meatless options, because it's designed to help you lose weight (thus the "Skinny Dish" title), but the author has a light-hearted approach to healthy eating that helps you have fun with it. It's a solid part of my plan to lose some weight but not stress out about "being on a diet." It's working so far! All in all, I'd call this the best investment in a cookbook my family has made in quite a while.

Format: Hardcover
I tried the recipe Sassy Moussaka recipe, that seemed healthy at a glance. The sodium level for this dish was a whopping 1125 mg of Sodium. Her Lazy Lentils came in at 1130 mg of Sodium. Polenta Stuffed Mini Peppers 751 mg. Lazy Lasagna at 1018 mg. Cannellini Ratoatouille at 840 mg.

Also when I cooked the Moussaka it was really watery upon taking it out of the oven. It called for almost 9 teaspoons of Olive Oil. While I know Olive Oil is a healthy oil, I used much less and it was fine without all the extra oil. A Number of the recipes have LOTS of oil and I'd modify.

While I do like that the number of ingredients in the recipes are easy to find and prepare, I am now wary of the sodium and oil.

Tried about 8 of the recipes so far exactly as written, and everything has turned out great. I'm new to Vegan cooking and the desserts I've tried so far (ginger bread & orange choc cake) were surprisingly good. From the app section, the cashew dip was fantastic.

From a weight loss perspective, the author's notes re: diet tips & tricks are quite useful. I'm even considering the included detox plan for the new year!

I recommend this book for anyone trying to incorporate more yummy, healthy food in their diet.

I wanted to let you know that I am in love with "Skinny Dish". It couldn't have showed up at a better time in my life. I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years and I have packed on a few extra pounds. I've found myself falling into bad eating habits and haven't found my motivation to get out of this slump. I've been finding myself bored with my usual go to recipes and short on time to make a healthy meal. This book had inspired me! I've been eating better and my meat eating husband has enjoyed the recipes we have tried so far! Thanks so much for the inspiration to eat healthy! xoxo

I love cooking, I love grocery shopping, I especially love Trader Joe's, and I'm a vegetarian who is always looking for new, healthy and easy recipes. Hence, my 5-star rating for this book. I have the entire "Cooking with Trader Joe's" series, but this is absolutely my favorite because the recipes are both tasty AND healthy (and conveniently veg). Using this cookbook has enabled me to continue to cook great meals for my boyfriend and me on a daily basis, while doing all of my shopping at my favorite store - which is my favorite because you can get quality foods there without wiping out your bank account (unlike Whole Paycheck, which is a fabulous shopping experience until I get to the checkout and see the bottom line...). Although the recipes in the book are all vegan, I would definitely recommend this to anyone - meat-free or meat-eater - who is interested in eating healthier but not spending all of your cash on groceries or all of your free time in the kitchen. Thanks for a great edition to this wonderful series!

This is awesome! Not only is it beautifully illustrated, and every recipe has its picture, but the recipes are truly easy to make and healthy. It does make for a perfect marriage between healthy vegetarian/vegan cooking and Trader Joe's.

I've made several of these recipes already, and I have incorporated some of these recipes in my Food For Life Classes. The Lentil Pate was a delicious surprise, very easy and very tasty, and the Chile Lime Sweet Potatoes were amazingly easy and delicious. I pretty much ate the whole batch myself. I know that I will definitely make some of these dishes for the holidays. Bonus - includes a great detox plan! I highly recommend this book. Thanks, Jen! Your hard work paid off.
