Skinny Meals in Heels

Prep-Ahead, Figure-Friendly Dishes for the Busy Home Chef

Skinny Meals in Heels

Bestselling author and sensational food stylist Jennifer Joyce shares quick, delicious, and healthy cooking for busy lives—made easy and fun.

Make no mistake, Skinny Meals in Heels is not a diet book. Nor is it a mundane “health” cookbook stripped of most of the flavor and all the fun. Picture instead a collection of quick, mouthwatering recipes that happen to be low in fat. It’s all about healthy meets delicious, with aromatic herbs, spice pastes, and chilies to flavor dishes instead of butter or cream, and baking replaces frying.

Most of the 130 recipes inside can be made in thirty minutes or under an hour. They vary from skinny snacks, like Oven-Dried Root Vegetable Crisps, to comforting dishes, like Pork Scaloppine with Lemon-Wine Sauce. Sweets are here too, with details on how to make fat-free frozen yogurt and cocoa meringue kisses.

Quick, delicious, and healthy is the new cooking mantra. So cook your friends and family a guilt-free, glamorous meal, and don’t forget a glass of wine. (P.S.: It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing heels or slippers.)
