What You Should Know
Skinny Bitch in the Kitch is a recipe book designed to accompany the Skinny Bitch diet plan. The author is known for her direct speak and use of profanities, which fans have grown to love. The diet plan is extreme and often eliminates foods commonly considered a healthy part of weight loss. The recipes are for “hungry girls who want to stop cooking crap and start looking hot!” The cookbook follows the anti-meat, anti-dairy, anti-eggs mentality of the author, but readers are not thrilled with the recipes. Basically, the book is a compilation of recipes redesigned as vegan without much attention to nutrition.
List of Ingredients
Recipe book following the Skinny Bitch Diet.
After the rave reviews of the Skinny Bitch diet we expected Skinny Bitch in the Kitch to be the end-all of recipe books, but that is not the case. The author simply repurposes regular, every day recipes with starch-laden versions. One dieter was appalled that none of the recipes included nutritional information. How is the dieter supposed to lose weight if they have no idea how many calories are in a recipe. Sure, the dieter could look up each ingredient, but if that is the case, why are dieters spending money on the recipe book in the first place.
Despite the lack of nutritional information, there must be innovative recipes in the book, right? Not according to some readers. There is one recipe that calls for a veggie burger on a bun with lettuce and tomato. That is a no-brainer on a vegetarian/vegan eating plan. Other recipes use white potatoes. White potatoes are often replaced with sweet potatoes for fewer calories and more vitamin bang for the calorie buck.
The more reviews we read for Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, the better we understood the basis for the book. The author simply takes meat recipes and replaces the meat with a vegan alternative. Image your mother’s cookbook with meat replaced with veggie alternatives. That is the gist of Skinny Bitch in the Kitch.
- Gives newbies some recipes to work with while transitioning to a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle.
- Ideal for the absolute beginner in the kitchen.
- Sells for less than most diet plans.
- No innovative recipes.
- Nothing more than a repurposing book.
- Replaces all meats with meat alternatives.
- Does not receive good reviews.
Skinny Bitch should have stayed with the diet book and plan. This recipe book offers nothing for the dieter wanting to try something new and exciting while eating less meat, dairy and eggs. If the author lives a vegan lifestyle, there has to be a few more ingenious recipes in her home stash.
