I have made a number of the recipes in the Biggest Loser Cookbook over the years. It was a cookbook I needed to keep. In November I saved this book by making Pam’s Cottage Cheese Marinara. It tastes like lasagna but only has three ingredients which is a good thing. It calls for fat-free cottage cheese but I prefer low-fat because I think it’s been messed with less. You add some low-fat shredded mozzarella and some low-sodium marinara sauce, microwave for a minute or two and voila! It does taste good. I think it’s a must have cookbook if you like to eat healthy.
The Biggest Loser original book has a bunch of great recipes. Most importantly it explains the entire program. If I ever need to refresh myself it will remain a good reference. I saved it in November too by making a peanut spread/dip that tastes great with apples. It allows you to have 2 tbsps as a serving vs. just 1 tbsp of natural pb. The recipe mixes plain natural pb with tofu, lime juice and a few other things to make a tasty spread.
Biggest Loser Fitness Program has not made the cut. It only has a few recipes and the chances of me using the book to exercise is very slim so I did donate it in 2012. Some other cookbooks that are beautiful but didn’t make the cut are in the photo below. They will be donated to the local library so that maybe others will make the recipes I only dreamed of.I will be continuing cutting down my cookbook collection into 2012. The new extended date is Easter. Wish me luck. It’s painful to just give away my books but necessary.
