Neo Soul: Taking Soul Food to a Whole 'Nutha Level
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
From the grandson of Harlem's queen of soul food, Sylvia Woods, comes a revolution in cooking down-home foods that taste as good as you remember but with less fat, salt, and calories. Lindsey Williams knows soul food. He grew up in the kitchen of his grandmother's restaurant, Sylvia's, where he mastered the art of soul-food cooking. But a lifetime of biscuits, coleslaw, corn bread, and fried chicken took its toll. When the scale tipped 400 pounds, Lindsey knew it was time to make some changes. The result is Neo Soul, a new kind of cooking that brings all the flavors to the plate but slashes the fat and calories.
Now, this paperback edition contains even more delicious soul-food recipes, alongside favorites like Grandma's Roasted Turkey, Lenzo's Trout Stuffed with Collard Greens, Okra Gumbo, Neo Sweet Potato Pie, and Blueberry Buckle. With food this tasty, no one will miss the fat.

deprived when others are eating theirs. Personally, I prefer having fruit for dessert, mixed with yogurt and a little bit of sugar. I particularly like strawberries—they seem like a dessert fruit. But I rarely eat flour or sugar, simply because I don’t want to get used to knowing I can have those ingredients.
