After spending more than 30 years as an overweight person, I devoted myself in the last few years to eating healthy, nutritious meals that are low in fat and calories. The problem is of course that, many times, those meals are also low on taste.

A few weeks back my ex-wife (go figure) told me about The Skinnytaste Cookbook. She knows I'm always looking for new recipes and I have to say, her recommendation was a really good one. I've tried almost a dozen recipes so far and they are easy to prepare, taste amazing and are somehow still low in sugar, calories and fat! (My favorite so far, even though it's not actually a meal, are the heavenly banana nut oat muffins.)

One habit that I have gotten into is to take Garcinia Cambogia with every meal, and it's been a fantastic combination with the recipes in this cookbook. I feel full, don't have those hunger cravings that really annoy me and the food is simply delicious. It's a great combination and, if you're like me and doing everything you can to stay slim, The Skinnytaste Cookbook is an excellent choice.

I have followed the Skinnytaste blog since 2010. I don't buy cookbooks anymore as I keep an iPad in the kitchen but I definitely wanted this one on my shelf! I was so pleased that it was so big, packed with recipes AND beautiful pictures.

My husband and I have both lost 30 lbs over the past year and Skinnytaste recipes were a huge part of this accomplishment. Gina's Chicken Enchiladas, Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken and Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili are weekly staples in our house. My 2 year old gobbles them all down. My husband adores the enchiladas. There is a fair amount of prep in many of her recipes as others have pointed out (with the exception of the crock pot recipes of course) but pace yourself..it's totally worth it. The recipes have flavor, I promise! I put my toddler down for a nap one day last week and made 6 batches of enchilada sauce and tossed them in the freezer. We had some left over shredded chicken (crock pot style) and we tried her Buffalo Chicken melts (toddler didn't like but I didn't expect her to!) and I made Noodle-less Zucchini Lasagna yesterday (toddler had 2 helpings). After trying over 40 of Gina's recipes I've learned what to keep stocked in the pantry (SWANSON chicken broth, some special hot sauces, chili peppers in adobo sauce, cheeses, kosher salt) and I pick up lean meat and fresh veggies weekly. So nice to see my favorite recipes in the book and many new ones as well.

I sip the Skinnytaste Kool-Aid as you can tell...Great job Gina!

At the time I bought this, I'd heard nothing about it. I had simply rarely seen a cookbook with so many glowing reviews, especially for one with "skinny" in the title. I have reviewed scores of cookbooks on Amazon and have bookshelves full, like some do a reading library. But I must say, this is one of the most well-done I have personally ever seen myself. I can understand, now, the cult following it's received.

First, let's touch on how "now" this cookbook is...by that I mean it has stepped out of old school cookbooks and how they have always been done, and considered today's audience and what they might need. So many of us are on special diets or have to entertain for a family member or guest who is and pull something together--whether that be gluten-free, vegetarian, something for a family who works during the day and needs crockpot meals, something for a family who works all the time and only wants to cook on weekends and then freeze the meals... this book took that all into account. Beside each recipe there is a color and letter coding-V for vegetarian, GF for gluten free, freezer friendly, crockpot etc. And, for those of us who count calories and want to know nutrients or carbs, it also has all that too! That took some time, but boy is it handy, even if you yourself only use it occassionally.

The photos are plentiful and throughout and professionally done with good lighting that makes you want to eat it. I have had a few cookbooks that actually made me turned off to the meal due to the grey lighting or even ones I knew were fake like a slow cooker photo of mac and cheese that showed it browned on top (that does not occur in a slow cooker). Not so for this one, it's how the recipe turns out and they make you want to lick the page!

I had never heard of the Skinnytaste craze until a co-worker showed me this cookbook on her Kindle. I thumbed through it and was really interested in the fact that all of the recipes look like they're not only easy to make but the ingredients are really healthy. I've been trying to lose some weight for the holidays, but it hasn't been going so well so I decided to purchase a copy for myself.
Over the last week of using Skinnytaste recipes and tips, I've lost five pounds. Five pounds! That's awesome, and that's given me the motivation to keep up the journey to my goal. I've been preparing the meals ahead of time and putting them in either refrigerated or freezer containers for later use. The spiral vegetable slicer has really helped me make the food quickly, and it looks good, too! I'm going to continue on the Skinnytaste lifestyle for a while. Highly recommended!
