BOOKS WE LOVE: Skinny Bitch Style!

Skinny Bitch in the Kitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin (Running Press) is a cheeky cookbook with "Kick-Ass Recipes for Hungry Girls Who Want to Stop Cooking Crap (and Start Looking Hot!)." The two skinny chicks who brought you Skinny Bitch are back with a vengeance with their latest New York Times Bestseller, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch. The skinny bitches share their cooking knowledge with readers, with sections like "Bitchin' Breakfasts," "PMS (Pissy Mood Snacks)," and "Happy Endings (Desserts)." With a spunky writing style, the ladies cook, vegan-style, and bring you tasty alternatives to classic dishes like "Pad Thai," "Falafel," and "Mac n'Cheese." They will have you substituting coconut oil for olive oil, and cutting how much dairy and meat you consume in no time. So go on and whip up some homemade "Granola Yogurt Parfait" made with soy yogurt and "Potato and Pumpkin Curry with Brown Basmati Rice" today. This isn't your typical cookbook, but it's lots of fun! It's also a compact, 192-page book, which means you can easily toss it in your purse for ideas while away from home. Make notes of your favorite recipes and health ideas with their journal, Skinny Bitchin', and you'll be well on your way to a healthier, happier you!

Their other books include Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven and their book for the boys, Skinny Bastard. For more information, visit their website.
