Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The follow-up to bestselling diet guide Skinny Bitch, this irreverent cookbook orders readers to toss out all their meat, eggs and dairy, and make room for nutritional yeast, seitan and something called "Bragg's Liquid Aminos" (although soy sauce will do in a pinch). The authors' philosophy is simple but rigid: in order to be skinny, one must also be vegan (and, preferably, willing to give up coffee and white sugar). Not to despair-the svelte can eat all the tofu-based fake meat and cheese they want, and follow it up with dessert-alikes such as Bitchtastic Brownies or Cheezecake. For the most part, recipes are easy and inoffensive; while a "Chicken" Parmesan Panini will fool nobody, other offerings, like Japanese Soba Noodles with Steamed Vegetables and Tofu, are perfectly satisfying. But to enjoy this cookbook in full, a reader must be content to be addressed (repeatedly) as "bitch," as in, "Who's a boring old fart now, bitch?" Confusingly, there's no nutritional information for any of the recipes, nor is there any information on the specific dietary needs of vegans-apparently, you'll need to buy Freedman and Barnouin's first book for that. (For those who haven't tried, switching to a vegan diet is difficult even with a proper guide; this book's complete lack of support should make it a real bitch.)

Review

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine(PCRM) pcrm.org 1/13/10
A new PCRM report finds that many cookbooks released or revived in the last decade encourage readers to consume more fattening meat-heavy meals at a time when record obesity rates mean that Americans have never needed more encouragement to eat nutritious low-fat foods. “These high-fat recipes help explain why America’s obesity-related medical spending doubled over the past decade,” said PCRM nutrition director Susan Levin, M.S., R.D. “You’d need a magnifying glass to find a vegetable in some of these cookbooks. But the good news is that a growing number of chefs are offering tasty meatless recipes that can help us stay trim and healthy.” The decade’s best cookbooks… The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch: Kick-Ass Recipes for Hungry Girls Who Want to Stop Cooking Crap (and Start Looking Hot!) by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, The Conscious Cook by Tal Ronnen, The Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn, Cooking the Whole Foods Way by Christina Pirello.

I made the Pecan Crusted French Toast, Onion Rings, Crabby Cakes, Tabouleh, Edamame Three-Bean Salad, Dream Bars and Rice Pudding after reading a copy from my library. I loved everything, so I'm ordering the book! I found the recipes to be things that I would feed non-vegans, and there weren't too many crazy ingredients to contend with - everything was easily found at the grocery store.

Format: Paperback
This book was a complete waste of money. The recipes are completely unimaginative. Take any cookbook and put the word 'vegan' in front of all the non-vegan ingredients and thats what this book is.
Pretty much all the recipes are combinations of processed prepackaged crap.
I haven't bothered to open it again. It's collecting dust on my book shelf.
I would have given it zero stars, but one is the lowest the scale goes.

I love the Skinny Bitch book but going vegan seems so overwhelming. I love this book because its breaks down some of your favourite recipes and gives vegan versions. I think I will be using this book a lot to eat healthier. I recommend this to anyone who is weary or unsure of what it means to eat vegan. I think that if you can try out a few recipes from this book you'll find that its not at all scary.
