I'm a personal chef and have been cooking this way for years. Many of the recipes are those I've already lightened up myself, but a lot are new ideas. I love her recipes for sausage and other basics. She uses fewer store bought ingredients i believe than skinny girl, though ive only seen sg's tv appearances and not read all of her recipes. always better from scratch if you can do it. These recipes are simple and you'll find them delicious. I hope this inspires and teaches home cooks to adapt their own favorites. A few words of advice though with regard to things like canned tomatoes and low fat cheeses and breads etc. you may have to try a few to find ones you like that are decent. Don't toss a recipe before you do. With few ingredients the quality is super important and never, ever be tempted to use fat free cheese, it's gross! most important, pay close attention to portion. Even thougha recipe is low fat and low cal doesnt mean you can eat as much as you want!


I’ve worked, and I’m working really hard, not to be weird about food. Like many women, especially, it’s been something I’ve been conscious of having to keep an eye on since school, where eating disorders were a core lesson of Key Stage 3, then through adulthood, where an essential facet of feminine bonding is sharing a hatred of our own bodies, and where, in the past decade, the idea of dieting to lose weight has morphed into a far more complicated and expensive concept of wellness, classing foods as either good or bad, right or wrong.

Sitting on a homemade maple graham crust is a decadent, delicious filling made from silken tofu. This fully vegan dessert feels rich yet is light, and can be finished with whichever topping you love.

It was late, and I was in town alone after seeing Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and, as well as being elated and raw with emotion, I was suddenly starving. That panicky kind of hunger where it’s dangerous to go into Tesco because you know you’ll leave with a bag for life swollen with Nik Naks and coffee drinks and yesterday’s sushi, then still need some toast when you get in. And then I remembered burgers.
Dr. Jen is hopeful that at some point terms like “guilt-free” will be destigmatized. “Being overweight is linked with low self-esteem, so as our culture slowly shifts from viewing overweight as a problem of lack of motivation, willpower and self-discipline, and rather a symptom of distress and possibly poor mental health, I believe a more compassionate stance will emerge,” she said.
Here is the best possible review I can give: I make items for people from this book, and they have no idea it's low fat or low calorie or anything! They love it! Haha! I always wait until they are done eating and then I say.. You know that was only 200 calories. They are always shocked and amazed. I've read a few reviews that say that ..oh this book isn't special it only replaces items that are fattening with their low fat counterparts. I don't think that's true. It's how they are combined with other ingredients that helps them taste like the real thing. I know I have tried many a time to just substitute low fat ingredients for full fat ones, and then it doesn't taste anywhere near the real thing. Devin has a way of making all the ingredients combine so well that the end result is just perfect! I highly recommend this book.
