With the combined expertise of Southern Living and author Carolyn O'Neil, The Slim Down South Cookbook offers strategies, recipes, and expert tips for enjoying great Southern food while maintaining a healthy, balanced diet--without feeling deprived! Carolyn's Slim Down South plan offers smart, simple ways to manage potential overindulgences and maintain a healthy weight-one day at a time. This book's philosophy: Having your biscuit and being fit too--it's all about balance.
Carolyn O'Neil reveals easy-to-follow secrets to staying slim in the land of bacon, butter, and biscuits. Carolyn's stratgies for success include:
- Savor the South. Explore and embrace the variety of genuine Southern ingredients, from greens and black-eyed peas to sweet potatoes and shrimp.
- Linger longer. The Southern lifestyle is about enjoying food and the people you share it with. Take time to appreciate each bite and the beauty around you.
- Indulge a little. It's not all about deprivation, darlin'. Splurge a little now and then with a reasonably sized treat, whether it's Banana Pudding or a Mint Julep.
- Make it happen. Like any good Southern magnolia, use your grit and grace to sidestep sticky situations, navigate temptation, and stick to your guns.
