Naturally Thin review

I have been reading Naturally Thin by Bethenny Frankel. I am really enjoying this book. I love that it isn't a "diet" book. She gives sensible advice and great tips and the recipes have been good too! I recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a lifestyle change to your eating. Pick up your copy today and let me know what you think about it.

I do want to share a recipe from the book:

Faux Pancakes

Serves 1

1/4 c liquid egg whites or two egg whites
1 whole egg
1/4 tsp. strawberry extract or vanilla extract
1 tsp raw sugar or sweetener
Fresh fruit or small bit of maple syrup or both.

1. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Spray with non-ctick cooking spray.
2. In a bowl, mix egg whites, egg, extract and sugar. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and stir lightly.
3. When the egg is firm on one side, carefully flip it over. When it is fully cooked and fluffy, carefully move it to a plate.
4. Top with fresh fruit or a bit of real maple syrup or both.

Bethenny says - I am strongly against fake food, but I call this "faux" because it is actually an egg dish. This is a great protein-rich breakfast when you are craving something sweet. The small amount of sugar gives it just the right degree of crispiness. This is delicious and so easy. You can also make delicious French toast by dipping whole-grain bread into this mixture instead of making it into faux pancakes. ENJOY!!


  1. Do you watch the Real Housewives? Both Bethany and Jill look way skinnier this season. I thought about getting this book...thanks for the review.

  2. I do watch the show. Brian hates it, but I seem to manage to watch. :)

    I agree with you - they look skinnier this season. I've really enjoyed the book. Most of the recipes I've tried are good.

  3. Bethenny was always my favorite housewife of all of the casts. I just picked this book up yesterday and will be starting it today. Thanks for the review!
