If you're ready for a more gourmet Hungry Girl, this cookbook is for you! Skinnytaste lightens up meals in innovative ways like Chocolate Cream Pie (made with Tofu), Chocolate Walnut Cookies (made with avocado instead of butter), Chili Verde (made with chicken and white beans instead of pork) and Lasagna (made with zucchini instead of pasta).
I agree with the author's suggestion to make a weekly menu plan and then shop for the ingredients because most people won't have these types of items in their pantry already. Most of the recipes have a lot of ingredients and will take more time than I have after coming home from work on weekdays. However, I'm looking forward to making several on the weekends. I particularly appreciated the notes regarding new foods like farro and her perfect pairings.
