*from the author’s website*

Tania is a full time mom to two little boys. She juggles her career, a long-distance relationship, volunteering for her sons’ PTA, attending her sons’ sporting activities, exercising, tending to the daily cooking, laundry, dishes and STRESS that come with modern life. You name it, she does it, because she really IS the Mom next door!

She lives in Dallas, Texas, and saw what appeared to be a hole in the self-help/cookbook market as she quickly dropped her baby weight and experienced droves of people at the gym asking “How?” As she dug deeper, she realized that while she had made the decision to stop eating emotionally, many of these people had not. Herein lies the groundwork for Eating Light, Done Right: Simply Sinless Recipes from the Single Mom Next Door. Drawing on her experience in the military counseling troops on weight control, she quickly realized that she loved helping people face the demons within. This turning point redirected her life in a positive direction.

eating light done rightCountless hours in the kitchen later, burning herself on a near daily basis and stubbornly refusing to purchase thousands of dollars’ worth of fancy cookware, Tania has transformed numerous favorite recipes from full fat, high-calorie “fat bombs” into easy, light recipes that you don’t have to be an “expert at anything” to make. Her approach is frank and light-hearted with the underlying message that if she can do this, anyone can. As she states at the end of nearly every recipe, “Serve hot and enjoy!” Emphasis on enjoy!

Tania cooks with common sense by dropping the fat and calorie content from her recipes and substituting healthy alternative ingredients in their place.  The result is many delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes that busy women and moms everywhere will be grateful to get their hands on, and kids will love too. Truly, the result is eating light, done right.
