The Skinnytaste Cookbook: 3 FREE Bonus Recipes with Preorder

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

I just got a sneak peak of the printed version of The Skinnytaste Cookbook and I’m beyond thrilled for it’s release on September 30th, and am so grateful for all of your enthusiasm and support so far!

As an added bonus (and a thank you to all of you who have already ordered the book!), if you pre-order The Skinnytaste Cookbook by September 30th, I will send you 3 FREE bonus recipes that I created exclusively for you! These recipes do not (and will not!) live on or in the cookbook.

Whole Wheat Banana Crumb Muffins – these scrumptious muffins are a favorite in my house, whenever I whip up a batch they quickly dissappear!

Easy Grilled Chicken Parmesan – perfect while it’s still hot outside, I tell my daughter it’s chicken pizza and she loves it! Takes less than 20 minutes to make and no heating the kitchen!

Zesty Crab and Mango Salad – fresh and light, and so easy to prepare!

All you have to do is pre-order the book from your retailer of choice (see links here) and send your proof of purchase to to receive a link to download these three recipes! This offer, of course, also applies to everyone who has already preordered their copy of the book as long as you send a receipt.

  1. I just wanted to leave a comment to say that your “House Salad” has totally revolutionized the way I think of salad. I don’t always try to be real careful with the calories (I may use extra oil, and extra avocado), but without giving away too much here (so people will still buy the book), the method you describe for creating the “dressing” through the slow process of adding ingredients a few at a time is freaking GENIUS!!! I never would have thought. I know that cooking is really a series of chemical reactions; for me, this no-cook method takes the cake. Mmmm craving that salad RIGHT. NOW…. time to go to the grocery store!!!!

  2. Hi Gina! I sent a proof of pre-purchase however, I did not receive anything in regards to bonus recipes etc. Do you know how I can get these? I would be more than happy to resend it. Thanks!

  3. Hi, Same question as everyone above – how do I receive bonus pack 1? Thank you!

  4. I agree with Susan/Anonymous… I would like to have this bonus pack as well. I emailed the publisher and Gina but I haven't gotten a response yet.

  5. Any update on the issue of not receiving bonus pack #1? Thanks!

  6. Gina,
    I have the same question regarding receiving bonus pack #1. I sent in the proof of purchase and I received bonus pack #2 but not #1. Can you please post how to receive the recipes?


  7. I haven't received my 3 recipes.

  8. I can't wait for the cookbook! Almost every meal I cook now comes from here.

    I received Bonus Pack 2. How do we go about getting bonus pack 1?

  9. Super excited for your book and can't wait to try the recipes! I preordered from Amazon and received the link to download the bonus recipes; however, I got the bonus pack #2 which does not include the Whole Wheat Banana Crumb Muffins, Easy Grilled Chicken Parmesan, and, Zesty Crab and Mango Salad recipes (these were the deciding factor for me to preorder). Any way I could get these recipes instead? I've emailed the address provided several times and each time they provide the same link for the bonus pack #2. Please help!

  10. This is coming out on my birthday!! Exciting! Congratulations on all of your success Gina!

  11. I preordered the book but have not received the recipes. How do I get them?

  12. Hello there…. not sure how to get the freebie recipes after I pre-ordered. Should I send you some link from with my pre-order????

  13. I just ordered mine! I cannot wait to buy them for my family and friends!! I tell everyone about your website! It has changed the way I cook and makes me look like a star!!! Thank you for all your hard work! Looking forward to getting my cookbook!

  14. The salad looks fresh and delicious, I would like to learn how to make it.

  15. Hi Gina,

    I preordered my copy on Amazon and sent the confirmation to the email address 4 days ago, but I have not received the free recipes. What should I do?

  16. Thank you all for your support, I am beyond grateful!!!

  17. I got my hubby to pre-order it for me for my anniversary present, I am beyond excited!!!

  18. I would love to pre-order the cookbook, but I am not working now and can't justify the extra expense even though I am determined to get the cookbook somehow. To everyone that has, enjoy the recipes! – Melanie

  19. Hi Gina, I would also like to know if the book has WW points.

    • It does not as legally I cannot use the points in the book, but you can easily use your calculator with the full nutrition values to calculate, or I can even email you the points.

  20. Gina,

    I don't usually leave comments, but I wanted to let you know that your website was one of the major contributors to my 40 lb. weight loss. I love searching through the recipe guide to find something new and exciting! Thank you so much for making my weight loss journey so much more fun than I ever thought it could be! You make incredibly delicious food that doesn't taste 'diet' and even all of my non-dieting family members love your recipes. I cannot wait to receive your cookbook (literally counting down the days…) and I wish you much success!

  21. I preordered this book a while ago, as I love your recipes. Thanks for the extras, I have bananas on the counter that need a home. Does the new cookbook have WW points? I love that the site does.

  22. Pre-ordered the book yesterday…for delivery first week of October! Can't wait! 🙂

  23. Gina,
    I ADORE recipes and am excited about the new cookbook. I received the 3 recipes and was concerned because the WW point values are not calculated as on the recipes on your blog. Will they be in the cookbook? I HOPE so! Thanks for your great work!

    • Legally I cannot add the points, but you can use your WW calculator or I can even email you the points when the book comes out.
