Since my first cookbook came out, I’ve gotten tons of requests for more slow cooker recipes and quick dishes that take 30 minutes or less from start to finish. I’ve been listening and wanted to fill Skinnytaste Fast and Slow with the easiest, tastiest, most convenient healthy recipes—ever. And that’s what I did! This book has a total of 140 nutritious, flavor-packed, figure-friendly recipes—60 for the slow cooker and 80 that cook in 30-minutes or less!—so you can get a great homemade meal on the table any night of the week.
