Appetite For Reduction
A simmering pot of aromatic curry bursting with color, pasta smothered in plenty of creamy pesto, a stick-to-your-ribs chili, crispy onion rings with a juicy center, or how about a fully stuffed and loaded lasagna? This isn’t your mother’s low-fat cookbook. No foolish tricks, no bizarre concoctions, no chemicals, no frozen meals, no fake anything – this is cooking with real food, with a real budget, and for real life. This is cooking with an appetite.
And to sweeten the pot (almost literally), all of the recipes were designed with the busy week night chef in mind. Many of the recipes come together in 30 minutes, and the ones that don’t will give you plenty of downtime, so that while your dinner is busy cooking away, you’re off finishing your novel, doing your nails or whatever it is you do in your spare time. A little light carpentry, perhaps?
Why low-fat cooking? You probably have a few reasons of your own for wanting to cook low fat, and maybe we cover them in the book.
But I wrote this book for me! After being diagnosed with PCOS I needed to change my diet to include more low-fat, whole food based meals.
So yes, I wrote this book for me, but of course I hope that it rocks your kitchen world, too. Low-fat cookbooks can be a warzone for women. I wanted to create something fun and positive. Something that would empower you at the stove, give you a reason to sport that cute vintage apron. I want you to love your kitchen, love yourself, and, yeah, maybe to love tofu just a little bit, too.
