On November 6, Kim Barnouin, co-author of the Skinny Bitch book series, made an appearance on The Early Show as a part of the show’s “Saturday Morning Chef on a Shoestring Challenge” series. Barnouin was challenged to make a three-course meal with a budget of 40 dollars, with which she made a kale and white bean soup, polenta-crusted eggplant parmesan, and chocolate cupcakes with peanut-butter frosting—all vegan.

Barnouin touched on the health benefits, wide-range of taste and variety, and economical aspects of going vegan.
