All I really want for Christmas is Marias Carey’s singing voice. And to be able to fit into those cute skinny jeans that I bought this spring. So this year, I’ve asked for almost all weightloss related gifts. Exciting? Not exactly. Practical? You’re darned tootin’. Here’s what I’m asking for this year to keep my eating in check:
This cookbook by Cheryl Forberg offers all-natural, low calorie recipes for girls like me who want to make healthy choices but aren’t 100% comfortable in the kitchen yet. I know her recipes aren’t all vegetarian, I actually put this one on my list before I made the switch. I’m hoping I can find some veg-friendly meals or at least adapt some to my tastes. I’m hoping to use this for some easy every day meals to keep myself on the right track weightloss wise!
This vegan cookbook comes from Lindsay Nixon, who runs the blog of the same name. Her whole thing is planning out low fat, vegan meals, so I’m looking forward to reading this book. I already read her blog (and am still planning on making some of those pumpkin cookies), so I think I’m definitely going to enjoy trying out some new recipes.
This one is from Heidi Swanson, who writes one of my favorite blogs, 101 Cookbooks. She also focuses on all natural foods, and is a vegetarian, but her recipes include eggs and dairy (which my cheese-loving self much appreciates). I expect to find more classics here that I’ll come back to time and time again. Maybe I can even get the SB to eat some.
Check in tomorrow to see what other tools I’m wishing for this Christmas!
