Cook Yourself Thin Faster

Look at me go!  3 posts in 3 days.

If you read my "25 Before 25" list, you might have noticed that one of the things that I want to do is to cook through a cookbook.  Yes, I got this idea from the movie Julie and Julia.  I checked out Juila Child's cookbook and all the French food honestly scared me. I had no idea what most of it even was, not to mention where I would buy it.  I was also worried that if I was able to find the food, that it would be too expensive for our grocery budget.

So, last night I scoured the cookbook section at Half Price Books and found a cookbook called "Cook Yourself Thin Faster."  This brings me to the assumption that there is a "Cook Yourself Thin" cookbook out there somewhere, and that this one is the sequel.  Another one of the things on my 25 list is to get back to pre-wedding weight, so I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone by cooking through a healthy eating cookbook.

Starting this weekend I will start cooking through the "Cook Yourself Thin Faster" cookbook. I will be cheating slightly by not cooking every recipe in this cookbook.  I'm not going to spend money on ingredients for a meal that I know neither of us will like.  On the menu for the first week is Fish and Chips, White Pizza with Roasted Mushrooms, Pork with Apples, Fettuccine con Funghi, mini blueberry muffins for breakfast Saturday morning, and blueberry/pomegranate smoothies for breakfast throughout the week.

Wish us luck!

  1. Sounds awesome! I've been wanting to do the cook through an entire cookbook thing like "Julie and Julia" but I just never have time during the week. Maybe I'll do a weekend cooking thing.
