A new PCRM report finds that many cookbooks released or revived in the last decade encourage readers to consume more fattening meat-heavy meals at a time when record obesity rates mean that Americans have never needed more encouragement to eat nutritious low-fat foods. “These high-fat recipes help explain why America’s obesity-related medical spending doubled over the past decade,” said PCRM nutrition director Susan Levin, M.S., R.D. “You’d need a magnifying glass to find a vegetable in some of these cookbooks. But the good news is that a growing number of chefs are offering tasty meatless recipes that can help us stay trim and healthy.” The decade’s best cookbooks… The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch: Kick-Ass Recipes for Hungry Girls Who Want to Stop Cooking Crap (and Start Looking Hot!) by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, The Conscious Cook by Tal Ronnen, The Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn, Cooking the Whole Foods Way by Christina Pirello.
This sequel to the fabulously successful "Skinny Bitch" will inspire Skinny Bitches to don an apron over their skinny frames and get cooking! Readers loved "Skinny Bitch", the diet book with attitude, which has sold over 60,000 copies worldwide to date. Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin inspired us to give up dairy, artificial sweeteners, caffeine and many other food evils that make people fat and bloated. But here's the question: can Skinny Bitches also have fun in the kitchen? What can they whip up for an easy after-work dinner? Can they make something for a delicious dinner party? The answer is yes they can, with this fabulous follow-up book which contains over 75 recipes that are delicious, flavourful, and easy to make! Skinny Bitches can be reassured that eating healthy food doesn't mean a lifetime of veggie burgers - this book includes delicious dishes from Japan, Mexico, Morocco and the Middle East, Eastern Europe, India and Greece amongst others.
