(CLOSED) TMTT ~ Cook Yourself Thin Faster Recipes

Monday I brought you some yummy recipes to from my new cookbook Cook Yourself Thin Faster that were totally healthy and I loved! Well Rick not so much I've been told the cranberry turkey meatloaf can never be made again (I'll just wait until he leaves town). He asked my why he must suffer while I diet, he kills me! It's funny if you wouldn't tell them what they are eating just make them eat it they would love it! But you say what's in it and their inner picky child makes them not like veggies!

Tell them to get over it and they'll love it if they try it! Today I'm going to show you 4 more recipes that I just LOVED and guess what yup I told you if you came back you would get a chance to win the book! 4 lucky readers will win this cookbook for their very own! Enjoy over 75 yummy recipes that will help you loose weight fast! So here it goes breakfast, dinner, side and of course desert!

Remember to check out yesterdays post for other yummy recipes: MSM ~ Cook Yourself Thin Faster Cookbook Recipes.

    And I need this cookbook because now that my husband is on a diet, I have nothing to cook. So I end up eating cold cereal for every meal, every day. I need help, and so does the hubby!

  11. I'm trying to walk at least four days a week as well as eat three servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Doesn't sound like much, but I'm hoping that every little bit helps!

  13. Mmmm...the coconut chicken recipe sounds scruptious! I'm trying to cut preservatives, trans fats and other crap like that out of our diet. Also, drink water instead of pop - and eat more nutritious foods.

  22. Wow, all of these recipes sound heavenly! Bet the bread pudding one is amazing. Let's see, so how are we trying to eat healthier? This last year we planted a big vegetable garden and I made lots of dishes with veggies both familiar and unfamiliar ;) Now I'm trying to make more stuff myself that I'd typically buy -- the latest is my quest for an additive-free homemade blue cheese sald dressing. :) Good luck in your weight loss goals!

  23. Going to have to bookmark this page! Looks good.

    I want to win the cookbook because I've been gaining weight recently. Hubs is now home for dinner all the time, so I'm always cooking a full meal, instead of just doint that a few times a week. So, I better start cooking healthier!

  42. we know from past experience that I NEVER win kitchen related things but I'm going to try for this one. Hubs wants to loose 30 pounds and evidently I have no idea what I'm talking about so maybe if he reads about healthy eating from a book it will make a difference....*eyeroll*
