Cookbook review: New 'Skinny-licious' recipe book makes dieting delicious
The idea that diet foods can be delicious is somewhat unconventional.
So, when Shauna Evans set out to share her secrets for scrumptious slimming, she coined a word to describe it — “Skinny-licious."
The warm, whimsical colors and design elements, mixed with the author’s own photography, artfully show that a dieter can have it all with more than 100 recipes for healthy, fat-healthy, fat-fighting sandwiches, salads, soups and even desserts that appear both palette-pleasing and easy to prepare. These are mostly "one-dish meals" that are low-carb and nutrient-dense.
Evans is Utah-born and raised, a mother of five, and she met her husband, Joe, at Brigham Young University.
In the book's first 11 pages, she shares a heartfelt explanation, tips and advice and tells how with the recipes and outlined diet plan she had weight-loss success.
