Book Reviews: Skinny Bitch

The Winner is lucky number 8: Congrats Emma! 


My first impression of Skinny Bitch was that the name was just really not appealing as my husband and I are not ones to use the term “bitch” and I find it has just a negative feeling.  I decided to over look this and give the book a chance since everyone has been reading it.  I must say that the book has a lot of great information.  It is just as it says on the cover “a no-nonsense, tough-love guide” and that is exactly what it is.  The book is filled with important information about the foods people eat from animal products, sweeteners and coffee.  However if you are easily offended this may not be the book for you.

Following the release of Skinny Bitch a new book came out Skinny Bitch In the Kitch . This book is filled with a variety of recipes for the girl (or guy) who wants to be a skinny bitch (or bastard). The recipes are all vegan and are easy yummy recipes for anyone- you can check out some of the sample recipes on the Skinny Bitch website.

Rory and Kim came up with some kick-ass recipes for every craving there is:

  • Bitchin’ Breakfasts
  • PMS (Pissy Mood Snacks)
  • Sassy Soups and Stews
  • Down Home Cookin’
  • Grown-Up Appetizers
  • Happy Endings (Desserts)

Lastly, my favorite SB book is Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven a “no-nonsense guide for pregnant gals”.  This book is great for any pregnant mom to be and especially those who are vegan or vegetarian.  For many vegan and vegetarian women there is a concern about eating properly during pregnancy and this book can help get you on the right track and give you great ideas. The book starts out much like the first SB book and then adds in things that are important for pregnant gals to know.

  1. O0o, I totally want this! I recently started eating vegan and it’s going great, but my husband and I are considering having kids soon and I have no clue about what that would mean with a vegan diet – this book would sure help!

  2. I always love learning new info about nutrition and finding new recipes! 🙂 Though I’m not pregnant I’d still enjoy this book as it could contain useful info nutritionally and that I could pass along to pregnant women in years to come once I become a pharmacist 🙂

  3. Well, my best friend is a vegan and I have come to discover that it doesn’t all “taste the same” in restaurants she takes me. I would like to offer her this book!

  4. I would love to learn more about vegan pregnancies. That’s why I’d like to win this copy.

  5. Thanks for the review 🙂

    You’re right about the books not being intended for the easily offended, but my sister loved Skinny Bitch and, thanks to SB, she went pescatarian and doesn’t drink milk. I’m still–forgive the expression–egging her on to go vegan, but in an amicable, goofy, sisterly way.

    Eventually, maybe one day, I’d like to carry on my lineage (can you tell I’m not in the right state of mind or place in my life yet?), so I’d like this book as a heads-up to what kind of dietary and physical planning I’d need. I know these ladies have done their research, so I’d like this book as one of a few resources.

    Have a great weekend 🙂

  6. Awesome! I love Skinny Bitch, its so great how they have spread the word to the world about veganism!!!! ;0) I would love this book as well as I’m planning to be a vegan mom in the future, great blog post, thanks! Michele

  7. I love Skinny Bitch thanks to you, and recently giving up meat I am hungry for information – as much as possible! Kids are definitely in my future and I want to know as much as possible to help myself and others eat properly.
