Last summer I read Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. It is hilarious and I dig its humorous tough-love real approach to food. A book about healthy eating written by foodies struck my fancy-VEGAN foodies at that. (I am not a vegan, but was intrigued to read what they had to say!) Skinny Bitch provides very healthy alternatives to everyday indulgences, and because it is written with the passion of two food lovers, you can rest assured that their offerings are aimed at taste satisfaction (muy importante). I think what I found most appealing is their very frank approach. Here is a quote from their website, “You cannot keep shoveling the same crap into your mouth every day and expect to lose weight.” Honest and enthusiastic. Love it. I also love how their descriptions of food make you want, nay, NEED to try them. This is what they say about Turtle Mountain products, “Their soy ice cream has ruined our lives. Ruined.” Bwahahaha. This is how real people talk about food! It motivated me so much at the time and helped jump start shedding some pounds acquired from medicinal weight gain (perhaps a story for some other day).
I need to re-read this gem soon....and try some Turtle Mountain soy ice cream.
