Make no mistake, Skinny Meals in Heels is not a diet book. Nor is it a mundane “health” cookbook stripped of most of the flavor and all the fun. Picture instead a collection of quick, mouth-watering recipes that happen to be low in fat. It’s all about “healthy meets delicious” with aromatic herbs, spice pastes, and chilies to flavor dishes instead of butter or cream, and baking replaces frying. Eating bacon, cheese, and nuts is still encouraged, albeit in smaller amounts.
With glamorous line illustrations and a fresh and sassy design, Skinny Meals in Heels has chapters on everything from snacks and nibbles to weekday dinners. Time is of the essence in everyone’s world, so most of these 130 recipes can be made in thirty minutes or under an hour.
Containing clear explanations as to why each recipe is “skinny” and tips on how to save time with your preparation, Skinny Meals in Heels has everything you’ll need for home-cooking with style and ease. The recipes vary from skinny snacks, like Oven-Dried Root Vegetable Crisps, to comforting dishes, like Pork Scallopine with Lemon-Wine Sauce. Sweets are here too, with details on how to make zero fat frozen yogurt or cocoa meringue kisses.
Quick, delicious, and healthy is the new cooking mantra for today’s busy lives. So cook your friends or family a guilt-free, glamorous meal, and don’t forget a glass of wine. (PS: It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing heels or slippers.)
