If you’ve been following Run DMT for some time, then you know…
I heart Skinnytaste.
When Skinnytaste announced the release of her cookbook, The Skinnytaste Cookbook, I salivated with excitement. I couldn’t wait to feast my eyes on the beautiful food photos and sink my teeth into her tasty skinnylicious recipes.
With a rungry Skinnytaste appetite, I pre-ordered an advance copy and earned extra recipes not featured in the cookbook. Can you taste my excitement?!
If you love Skinnytaste, then you will love getting your hands on a hardcover of The Skinnytaste Cookbook. As stated on Amazon “The Skinnytaste Cookbook features 150 amazing recipes: 125 all-new dishes and 25 must-have favorites.”
In the Introduction, Gina shares her story and the simplicity of slimming down some of her family’s favorite dishes. In “The Skinny Basics”, she debunks the typical excuses and shares her tips to turn bad habits into healthy ones.
The Table of Contents outlines the chapters and courses in perfect order from breakfast recipes entitled “Sunny Mornings” to “Skinny Sweet Tooth” for dessert recipes. There’s even a chapter named “Meatless Mains” to help plan some delicious meals for Meatless Mondays and incorporate additional delicious vegetarian dishes into your diet.
In true Skinnytaste style, the recipes are as simple to follow as the ones shared on her blog and the photographs are just as beautiful. A “Recipe Key” lists icons at the start of each chapter and again under the title of each recipe to specify the type of meal for special diets and time specifications. With each recipe, Skinnytaste even offers some food facts, side suggestions, shopping and preparation tips.
I truly love it from cover to cover, but don’t take my word on how scrumptious The Skinnytaste Cookbook is! The SkinnyTastes Cookbook has been ranked

When I received The Skinnytaste Cookbook, I made the promise to try at least one new recipe a week and so far, I stuck to that goal. This week is no exception. With the A1A Marathon a week away, I decided to add lots of lean protein and complex carbs to our dinner menu.
Here’s our heavy on the low fat Skinnytaste Dinner Menu:
Meatless Monday – Greek Salad Sandwiches with Low Fat Potato Salad
Taco Tuesday – Banging Baked Fish Tacos
Wednesday – Skinnytaste’s Fettuicine Alredo with Chicken and Broccoli (The Skinnytaste Cookbook)
Thursday – Skinnytaste’s Orecchiette with Chicken Sausage, Baby Kale and Bell Pepper (The Skinnytaste Cookbook) – A delicious repeat!
Friday – Pizza and a Mixed Greens Salad
What is your favorite go-to cookbook? What’s your family’s favorite repeat dish? What recipes are you pinning and planning for dinner this week?
