The book is great, ignore its title

Skinny Bitch In the Kitch, the sequel to the New York Times bestseller controversially titled Skinny Bitch, is essentially a cookbook advocating the Vegan lifestyle. In less than 200 pages, authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin take you thru various meals, snacks, and desserts ranging from everyday cooking such as steamed tofu and vegetables, to exotic cuisine like potato and pumpkin curry, to guilt-free, yet decadent, desserts like their divine hot fudge brownie sundae. With a glossary defining various vegan ingredients to educate the novices, and a brief 14-page intro to the “skinny bitch” lifestyle for those who missed the first book, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch is certainly worth checking out. Even if you’re not vegan, many of the recipes are great, flavorful, healthy, and a great way to change things up in the kitchen. My only two problems with the ‘skinny bitch’ series are the book titles and the language but if you don’t take the often-crude words to heart, the books are actually amusing and certainly educate readers on the health-benefits of eating more vegetarian/vegan options. In regards to the title, I was a bit put off by the word ‘skinny’ because it can often have negative connotations. Yet after reading the book (and quite literally not judging it by its cover), I realized that their definition of ‘skinny’ was synonymous to ‘healthy, strong, and fit’. But let’s be honest, a book entitled ‘Skinny Bitch’ is certainly going to catch your eye in the bookstore more so than one titled ‘Healthy Woman’! I recommend dabbling in some of the recipes – what have you got to lose? (Besides a few inches from your waistline that is!)
