Book Review: Skinny Bitch in the Kitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin

Posted on by Ashley Fruno

Skinny BitchWhen Skinny Bitch was first published, it quickly earned a spot on The New York Times bestseller list. And it goes without saying that it sold a lot of copies! It seemed as if authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin had found a niche. Lots of women (and men) wanted to be skinny bitches but just needed some help learning how. Enter sequel the, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch, an easy-to-understand recipe book with a variety of easy-to-cook vegan recipes that will satisfy even the fussiest “bitch.”

Kim and Rory, two self-confessed food lovers, offer their thoughts on food: “What’s better than eating? (If you say ‘sex,’ you’re either a liar or a pervert.) The answer is: Nothing!” This book gives readers the facts on why eating meat and dairy products is so bad for our health and how to have both a nutritious and enjoyable vegan diet. The authors have covered everything, including “Bitchin’ Breakfasts,” “PMS (Pissy Mood Snacks),” “Happy Endings” (desserts), and basically every meal for every occasion.

I found the ingredients easy to find and the meals simple to cook. Skinny Bitch is a humorous and informative introduction to the health benefits of a vegan diet, and Skinny Bitch in the Kitch gives you the tools (and recipes!) to be the person you want to be. I would recommend this book—which I consider to be both a self-help book and a cooking book—to anyone who is new to the vegan lifestyle and wants to get it right.

To help you really come to grips with the book’s content, why not pledge to be vegan?
