Light and delicious meals, Skinnytaste & Yumbox Giveaway

Get a taste for summer with light and delicious meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert! Enter for a chance to win best selling cookbook The Skinnytaste and a Yumbox of your choice.

The Skinnytaste Cookbook- Light on Calories, Big on Flavor

Summer is upon us and I'm no longer craving those wintery comfort foods. It seems like our bodies know that it's time to switch gears and enjoy all of the wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables that abound. If you and your family are looking for nutritionally balanced, delicious and satisfying meals that are light and delicious, look no further than Best Selling Cookbook The Skinnytaste by Gina Homokla. Like Gina, I have a love of fresh simple delicious foods. This cookbook is a gem. It includes a huge range of easy to prepare meals using fresh ingredients (nothing too fancy) with nice flavor combinations that you will find inspiring. There's definitely a lot of variety, so you are bound to find many recipes that appeal to the whole family. In addition, all recipes are presented with nutritional facts as well as snippets of helpful nutrition info from registered dietitian Heather K Jones, RD.

Cilantro-Lime Shrimp close up

Lunch is obviously the meal of the day I'm most focused on given that what goes in Yumbox is what I do. I found many wonderful recipes that would make a great office or school lunch. Pictured is The Skinnytaste's Cilantro-Lime Shrimp. I happen to have a ton of cilantro taking over my garden right now, so this recipe was another excuse to use it. It was delicious! In my desire to add as many seasonal fruits and veggies to my meals, I decided to have it with a simple mango and avocado salad and local corn on the cob. Best lunch ever! If you'd like to try it, click here for the Recipe.

    I would love to own this cookbook because I often get stuck in a rut and don’t branch out to try new things for dinner. I would love some inspiration! Also the yumbox looks great to take leftovers in!! Thank you

    I am always looking for yummy and healthy recipes for my family. We live in Florida, and my boys and I love to pack picnic lunches. The Yumbox would be perfect for that.

    Yumox has been a must in our family for the last 2 school years. There are 3 foods that will make it every day into my oldest’s lunch box: cucumber, cherry tomatoes and baby carrots. I have to mention though it is on his request. A cook book, with easy recipes, including not too many fancy ingredients, would help instill some change in an healthy but old habit, just in time to try out over the summer before another school year starts. Hopefully #2 and #3, who each have their own yumbox, will be open to try some new flavors too!

    I’d love to win the cookbook and the yumbox!! I’m a mom of three and sometimes the inspiration for yummy meals is lacking. This would help me get on the right foot and start fresh, plus what better way to present a meal than by carrying it in a yumbox? Awesome! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’ve been packing my lunch for work to save money, and also to eat healthier. I would love to have the Yumbox to reduce the number of containers I pack, and also so my food doesn’t touch (I admit it, I hate it when my food touches). And yes, I am an adult. I am a longtime fan of Skinnytaste – love her recipes! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!
