Fashion Flash Book Review: I Can Make You Hot! by Kelly Killoren Bensimon
I love the promise of this book. A beautiful model/reality star who is also the mother of two young girls seems to be offering to share the secrets of her fabulous style. Well, it doesn’t really tell a 50 + grandma how to look hot, but it does have plenty of exercise and diet tips for women of every age.
Kelly is a truely effective exercise motivator. She does not preach or nag, but makes daily exercise as natural as brushing your teeth or combing your hair. I really wish she had shared the secrets of her totally gorgeous smile or perfect “red carpet” hair, but her healthy recipes are worth the price of the book. Easy, quick and delicious these are real recipes for real women.
Kelly is not a foodie, but she wants to prepare tasty nutritious meals for herself and her family. I love that her recipes have less than five steps and use supermarket inredients. Her pancakes with coconut milk and bananas are my new favorite Sunday brunch and the rich/skinny cauliflower soup with kale chips is brilliant. My favorite has to be the fresh tuna tacos that simply burst with flavor and nutrition. Now if she would just share the secrets those fabulous gold highlights and flawless complexion.
