When was the last time you indulged in a sumptuous eggs
benedict, an herbaceous and aromatic pasta with pesto, or a
soul-satisfying cup of creamy tomato soup with a grilled
cheese on the side—without a moment of guilt? The
too-good-to-be-true recipes in Pretty Delicious not only
look and taste great, but they are as easy on the waistline
as they are on the wallet and will keep you lean, sexy, and
very, very happy.
The secret? Former model-turned-chef Candice Kumai skips
“diet” food in favor of smart swaps and delicious real foods
that keep fat and calories to a minimum while boosting
flavor and plate appeal to the maximum. And by loading her
dishes with FWBs (that’s foods with benefits, of course!),
she ensures that every enticing bite provides the key
nutrients your body craves to stay healthy and look amazing.
From sliders and mac’ and cheese to a lightened-up veggie
lasagna and guilt-free BLTs, nothing is off-limits in the
Pretty Delicious kitchen. Love Cali-fresh flavors? Try
Candice’s 470-calorie Fabulous Fish Tacos and a
soul-soothing Albóndigas Soup. Making an intimate dinner for
two? Almond Pesto Fettuccine with Pan-Seared Scallops or
Grilled White Pizza with Mushrooms, Artichokes, and Parm are
made to order. Hosting a crowd for brunch? A breakfast
burrito bar or make-your-own-mimosas spread will start the
weekend off right without weighing you down.
And proving that you don’t need to be a millionaire to eat
like royalty, Candice shares her tips for being fab and
frugal, as well as ideas for making smart switches in the
kitchen that will save you calories and fat grams without
compromising on flavor.
For entertaining, for easy weeknight meals, and for simple
snacks and everyday indulgences (to be enjoyed in
moderation), Candice Kumai’s collection of smart, sexy, and
truly irresistible recipes is proof that even the most
health-conscious cook can dish it up with style and flavor!
