I recently received a copy of Substitute Yourself Skinny by Chef Susan Irby, the Bikini Chef. This is truly a collection of great recipes for anyone looking to either lose weight or maintain their weight by eating better with substituting lower fat or lower calorie ingredients. “Cut the calories, keep the flavor.”
