Omg! I Can Eat That? Indulgent Food Minus the Boombah by Jane Kennedy

by |September 15, 2010

From Australia’s favourite new health-food chef comes the follow up to the bestselling Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah.

Jane Kennedy has long been known for her radio and television career. Something less known is that Jane loves food. Both cooking it and eating it. But Jane can’t eat any thing she wants to. That’s because she gets FAT. After having five children in six years and trying every fad diet known to man in an attempt to shift excess weight, Jane decided to take matters into her own hands.

A lifetime love of cooking, teamed with a refusal to give up the flavours of her favourite meals, led Jane to develop her own dishes that are delicious but also good for you.

In Jane’s second book, OMG! I can eat that?, she shares some of her favourite recipes, just without all the unwanted fat.

Chapters include Nibbles, Soups, Piemakins, Chicken & Duck, Beef, Lamb & Pork, Fish & Seafood, Comfort Classics, Vegetables and Dessert.

And these recipes aren’t your typical ‘diet’ recipes either, with delicious meals such as Chicken, Leek and Mushrooms ‘piemakins’ (pies in ramekins minus the pastry), Beef Bourguignon, Boombahfree burgers, and even sweet treats like Rhubarb and strawberry crumble, you’ll forget you’re even eating food minus the boombah!

About Jane Kennedy’s Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah:

In Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah, she shares the recipes that allowed her to lose weight and feel fantastic: meals for every day in the home, for entertaining, for nights when you couldn’t be bothered cooking and just really want takeaway, and even some pretty deceptively delicious desserts.

Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah is your new way of cooking – packed full of flavour but minus the boombah!

    Hi John
    How are you??? Just looking up books online for a girlfriend. Thanks for this page…just wanted to let you know the twitter address for me is incorrect…it’s actually @Jane_L_Kennedy.
