Eating Light, Done Right Cookbook Review...

"Who doesn't want a break from figuring out what's for dinner tonight? Now every family can have guilt-free, easy-to-prepare meals all the time. Author Tania N. Boughton struggled with food, weight loss and emotional eating for years before developing her new cookbook, Eating Light, Done Right: Simply Sinless Recipes from the Single Mom Next Door (Inspire On Purpose).
“The best thing this cookbook offers is an easy approach to cooking healthy and losing weight without complicated, time-consuming recipes and professional-grade cookware,” Boughton says. “When I realized I was burying myself in food to deal with the emotional ups and downs of life, I knew I needed to change.” Realizing that countless other women struggle with weight loss issues and emotional eating, she began to work on a solution.Countless hours in the kitchen later, burning herself on a near daily basis and stubbornly refusing to purchase thousands of dollars’ worth of fancy cookware, Boughton has transformed numerous favorite recipes from high-calorie “fat bombs” into easy, light recipes.“You don’t have to be an expert at anything to make these dishes,” she says. “If I can do this, anyone can.” With a frank and light-hearted approach, Boughton takes popular but high-fat, high-calorie recipes from well-known chefs such as Paula Deen and Rachel Ray and modifies them into healthier options while still keeping taste and flavor.Drawing on her experience in the military counseling troops on weight control, Boughton quickly realized she loved helping people face the struggles within. The stories she shares are the true confessions of a reformed emotional eater who is trying to balance single motherhood with hectic everyday life.Tania is a full-time single mom to two little boys, one of whom has Asperger’s syndrome. She also juggles a fashion career, volunteering for her sons’ PTA, raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and other charities, attending her sons’ sporting activities five nights a week, exercising, writing, and tending to the daily cooking, laundry, dishes and stress that come with modern life."
