 Eat, Shrink & Be Merry!: Great-Tasting Food That Won't Go from Your Lips to Your Hips

eat shrink be merryby Janet & Greta Podleski


The third in a delightful series of fun cookbooks. I love them, I laugh with them and I am amazed at the cleverness of the recipe names. My family loves The Roast of Christmas Past (a roast beef with gravy that includes a can of cranberry sauce- yum) and Lanky Noodle Dandy (made when chicken breast is on sale). Both of these are from Crazy Plates or Looneyspoons. All recipes are low fat versions. Lots of tidbits of information throughout the books too. You can eat 500 boiled shrimp before you get the amount of fat in one McDonald’s sausage egg mcmuffin!

I love this cookbook! The pop trivia is interesting and some of the cartoons have actually made me laugh. I love humor and laughing is healthy medicine. I was initially attracted to the bright colors throughout this book, I have since tried a few of the recipes and am quite happy with them. The Lasagna on page 137 is sooo yummy. The Indian Butter Chicken on page 82 was a smash hit with company last weekend. Each recipe has a goofy fun name with straight forward translation written right beside it. Life is too short to be so rigid. I say give this book a try.
