Short and Sweet:
This was a nice teaser, and it’s nice that it’s free. It also has fine pictures, a great concept, and a nice explanation as to why 300 calorie dishes are good ideas.
BUT, and this is a big but, despite the fact that the pictures try to make the dishes sound appealing, the ingredients alone make me not at all interested in trying the dishes (which is terrible, I know, but I can’t see myself getting this book or others when just looking at the ingredients makes me go, ew…)
To me, the combination of Skinny Cow cheese, turkey burger, and ketchup just doesn’t sound at all appealing. It feels like I’d rather have a smaller portion of the full-fat version than an only-slightly-bigger version of a too-”healthed”-up version.
I know this means that I’m reviewing the book without trying the recipes, but I just can’t bring myself to try them
