For the past four years on her blog, Skinnytaste, Gina has been testing and tasting healthy recipes. To keep things fresh, she doesn't just focus on dinner. Gina shares slimmed-down options for every occasion (you're covered at the Fourth of July barbecue, holiday cocktail party and Valentine's Day date) or time of day. Readers can't get enough of her recipes—check out Pinterest for proof.
Portion control trick “I fill my plate with a salad, which leaves less room for more calorie-dense protein and carbohydrates. My plate never looks empty, so I never feel deprived.”
My healthy indulgence “Plain baked or grilled bananas taste just like bananas foster without all of the butter! For a treat, serve them with a scoop of frozen yogurt.”
Favorite fat-cutting tip "Greek yogurt makes a great swap for mayonnaise in salad dressings, spreads and dips. Try it in my lightened-up tzatziki."
