Synopsis

A revelatory new healthy eating book of two halves from bestselling author Gizzi Erskine, Skinny Weeks and Weekend Feasts will leave you amazed at what you can eat, rather than being disappointed by what you can't! Part One, Skinny Weeks, gives you a delicious, easy-to-stick-to recipe plan for 6 days of the week, perfect for a 1 - 2lb weight loss per week. Mouthwatering dishes such as Blackened Mackerel with Roast Tomatoes and Kaffir Lime Leaves, Korean Beef and Glass Noodles and Pancetta and Chilli Baked Beans on Sourdough demonstrate that healthy food needn't be boring or mean sacrificing bold, exciting flavours. In Weekend Feasts, Gizzi shows you how to let your hair down and treat yourself to the food you love to eat. Choose from a Friday night feast, a long leisurely brunch, a proper Sunday lunch or an indulgent afternoon tea and enjoy some truly decadent food, safe in the knowledge that you've earned it. Throughout, Gizzi reveals the secrets of eating the right way day in, day out - demonstrating how a bit of forethought and preparation can go a long way towards eating healthily and enjoying astonishingly satisfying, flavoursome food with just a fraction of the expected calories. Sensible, achievable and utterly delicious, Skinny Weeks and Weekend Feasts will show you how to have your cake and eat it ...
