Giveaway – The Skinnygirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life


If you’re a fan of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” then you know Bethenny Frankel. She’s not only a reality TV girl, though — she’s also a celebrity natural food chef, columnist for Health magazine and best-selling author.

First came Bethenny’s book “Naturally Thin,” detailing 10 real-life rules for escaping a lifetime of dieting, and now she’s written “The Skinnygirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life.” This is where she shares fast, practical and economical healthy recipes, then teaches us how to live without them. How perfect for those of us trying to live cleaner lives in less time!

Bethenny also dishes on how we can minimize the “cooking noise” in our lives. Keep reading for some inspirational nuggets — and for the scoop on how to win one of her books.

  • Do you hear yourself saying any of these things: I have no food in this house. I don’t have the slightest idea what to make for dinner. There is nothing to eat! I don’t know how to cook. That’s “cooking noise,” and you can stop it, and you can learn to feed yourself without stressing about it.
  • Food is one of the most powerful tools you have for building a healthy body and a calm mind. Food can make you strong or weak, energized or depleted, skinny or fat. You are what you eat — it’s true.
  • Being naturally thin is a practice — you will never be perfect (no one is), but you can choose a healthy path and keep plugging along on it.
  • Recipes are a bit like kindergarten. You learn some basics (how do Whole Grain Blueberry Pancakes, a Healthier Cobb Salad and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies sound?), then you gain the confidence to branch out on your own. When you know how to cook, you won’t need recipes anymore.

OK, I could go on, but then you wouldn’t need the book, and I really think you should get it. Or you could enter this giveaway for a chance to win a free copy. Details follow:

  1. “I have no food in this house. I don’t have the slightest idea what to make for dinner. There is nothing to eat! I don’t know how to cook.” It’s like someone was living inside my mind! Those are were my exact words to myself last night! I need to look at this book!


  2. I was just diagnosed with breast cancer and have been fighting my weight for a good five years now (and losing the battle!) – I would love to learn how to be naturally skinny and healthy, especially with my cancer battle, and make changes that will last me for the rest of my life (I’m only 29). 🙂

  3. Alex,

    I am confident you will win both of your battles! Thanks for entering the giveaway — be sure to visit (my other blog) so you can enter to win again!


  4. Jojo — Don’t forget to enter again at Just another chance to get the book!

  5. I need to book because I am always looking for new recipes to help me have a better lifestyle of eating! The taco bell baby needs to be reduced LOL 😀

  6. I love cooking and love recipe cooking and tips to eat better!

  7. I am always looking for new things to cook……. Looks like a good book for that

  8. I always feel like I don’t have the slightest idea what to cook for dinner so this would be perfect for me! I’d love to learn some basic and healthy recipes that I can use as a basis for future recipes too. I don’t mind cooking but I don’t like how I’m always glued to a cookbook to pull off a decent dinner.

  9. My overall diet is quite lacking. So I could really use a book like this to get into a great routine. 🙂

  10. I need this book to meet my goals of shaping up and slimming down. Ironically (maybe), I put on weight during my BC treatment and have struggled to take it off ever since. This year, I am determined to do what it takes to get myself back where I should be. So far, so good, especially since I now have the hubby making healthy changes along with me.

  11. I just entered my community weight loss challenge and this would be a great resource to help me achieve my goal.

  12. I need this. I need it to live better, live longer and be happy. It’s my reality… so now I have to action!

  13. In the summer it’s much easier to eat like a skinnygirl, but all winter I struggle with eating like a fatgirl — Christmas treats, cookies, rich stews, lots of carbohydrates… Help!

  14. I would love this book to help me with my new lifestyle to get rid of this Breast Cancer weight and never see it (or BC again – twice is enough right!?!?!)! Having just gone through my tram flap reconstruction, I have a flat belly and nice perky new boobs – both of which I want to keep that way! Once I can start running again, this book could help me help my husband go from making gourmet (but fattening!) meals to skinny, healthy meals!

  15. Hey,

    I could use this book–with 4 children and never nothing in the house to eat according to all of us here–it might help us get back on track of eating healthy foods!
