Having found the "Skinny Bitch" approach to promoting healthy eating, I was really looking forward to getting this cookbook to raise my moral and determination to follow an ultimately healthy, non animal, low fat, vegan, wholefood diet - the diet recommended worldwide for a healthy slim bod - if you take away all the consumerism and scewed marketing.

When the book arrived I am disappointed in the extreme, the recipes use refined ingredients, for example - unbleached flour, confectioners sugar, vegetable shortening etc.

It seems like the authors have taken a look at maybe "The China Study" and then put a commercial spin on this using the "Skinny Bitch" attention catching headline, whilst reverting to a westernised adulteration of what "The China Study" really tells us. Read "Food Politics" and you'll see exactly how this has been done when you apply what you've learned to this skinny bitch cookbook.

The recipes are not low fat and worse encourage fat laden ingredients to be used (vegetable shortening, almond milk). There is no attempt to use other methods of fat replacement - for example using apple puree or banana. Furthermore the book shows glossy pictures of light and crispy pie crusts [Page 266] (where a truly healthful approach would be wholewheat, low fat, pie crusts) - and fluffy cupcakes with piles of white, high fat icing loaded on top [Page 252]- where a truly healthful approach would be fat-free muffins with an applesauce or banana base incorporating fruit with a date and fresh orange topping (no added sugar, no added fat).

Let's look at an analysis of 4 random recipes taken from the book from a healthful - fat to calorie ratio - perspective?

Page 77: Banana and Cinnamon Muffins. For 1 muffin/1 serving. Total Calories 300.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting to try 12 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is worth a read of though really only if you are quite an accomplished cook already. Some of the ingredients are quite unusual and not things you would be able to buy from your regular supermarket (for instance silken tofu and brown rice syrup) but a quick trip to the local health food store sorted me out for most of the items. I found the recipes quite expensive as most health food stores are on the more expensive side so it not really for everyday cooking (despite the title). However I can't pick too many holes as if you fancy getting in to vegan cooking then its a really good buy and it helped me eat healthily. Keep an eye on some of the quantities as I found I did have to double up some of the measurements quantities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bitchtastic! 6 Nov 2010
By M. Dwyer - Published on
I was browsing through this book in the bookstore yesterday and just had to purchase it. The recipes all look fabulous! This morning for breakfast, I made the Crepes with Raspberry Sauce - so simple to make and so delicious to eat, as well as the Breakfast Scramble, another yummy treat.

I was especially drawn to this cookbook, because, although it's vegan, you don't miss the no-meat recipes at all. There's such a variety - Coconut Banana French Toast, Black Bean and Tomato Soup, Warm Spring Rolls with Spicy Sesame Sauce, Polenta-Crusted Eggplant Parmesan, Jenny and Heather's Mini Lemon Cheesecake Bites with a Strawberry Sauce...I could go on and on. One of the particular draws to this cookbook was the lack of "fake meats" used. They are very rarely utilized in a meal, instead relying on fresh produce, legumes, and whole grains.

Almost all of the ingredients listed are found in regular grocery stores, which is also a big plus. And there's nutritional information included in each recipe, so you can stay your skinny self or make yourself one.

This book is a must buy. I am looking forward to cooking my way through the book and doing "stay-in" meals instead of "take-out", for once!

5.0 out of 5 stars Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook 25 Jan 2011
By L. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a long time vegan chef I have lots and lots of cookbooks. I often end up developing my own recipes but I have to say, "This is hands-down my all time favorite cookbook!" The recipes are delicious, easy and they even work as written! The main changes I've made is substituting maple sugar for cane sugar (I don't eat cane sugar) and cutting down on the Earth Balance a smig and adding oil rather than Earth Balance in a couple of recipes. Other than that I've hardly changed a thing. I've made about 50% of the recipes at this point and I couldn't be happier. One more thing, the pictures are beautiful and inspiring -- I just love a book with pretty pictures ;-). Like I said above, I was really hesitant to buy this book because I have lots of cookbooks but now I'm buying it for all my friends! This is a MUST HAVE!

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good! 11 Oct 2010
By Nerdygrl - Published on
I've tried three recipes from the book so far, and I've really enjoyed them. I had the coconut/banana french toast, spicy vegetable curry, and curried pumpkin soup. The only one I modified, by adding more spice to, was the curry; I happen to like mine really spicy. The recipes in this book are more "sophisticated" than what was available in the other two books. I did enjoy them, but this book relies a lot less on meat analogs than the previous ones (but there are still a good selection of them). It's more of a whole foods cooking style. Very good chapter on sustainability too. The tone is still sassy, but I never had a problem with that. I'm looking forward to trying the asian macaroni and cheese; it sounds delish! BTW the french toast was incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! 13 Dec 2010

No kidding! If this is unchartered water for you then this book is your friend! Kim has made this transition easy for me and my family of five! My husband and kids don't even realize what I am doing....the food is that good. I am excited for the tools that are put together. Pictures are very nice...would like more. Has cal/fat info for each dish. Fun to read. Major down fall-there is no "prep and cook time" listed. So you need to read through the recipe and understand what you are getting into BEFORE you start cooking....some take time. But a wonderful addition to my kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed for First Vegan Cookbook 10 Jan 2011
By West Coast Surf Mama - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I recently ordered this book, never previously vegan, to help my 4 month old daughter who is nursing. She was diagnosed with severe infant reflux. The best cure was for me to nurse her, and go on an extreme dietary change, first eliminating all dairy. As a complete dairy lover, this has been extremely difficult. I LOVE cheese, ice-cream, etc. Otherwise, I normally eat a very healthy diet and regularly exercise, so am already in great shape. After ordering this book, I was SO grateful to see all the milk/cheese/butter substitutes I might have never known about. I have now tried several of the recipes, and have been surprised how good they were in comparison to non-vegan. Thus making my transition not nearly as painful as it started. This book has been quite an eye opener as to why many turn to a vegan diet, and I now have a greater appreciation for them. The book includes dietary related environmental information, some of which I have heard previously, but appreciate and would absolutely not criticize as the majority of that is easy to obtain facts that can help our world. I do believe these recipes are excellent for your body when added into an already healthy lifestyle or to jump-start a completely unhealthy lifestyle.
