After postponing her second cookbook, Chrissy Teigen gave her fans something to look forward to yesterday when she posted a video teasing mockup pages from the highly anticipated book.

The model and social media maven, who many are calling ‘the next Martha Stewart’, used her Twitter and Instagram accounts to highlight a few pages from her new cookbook, which she’s informally dubbed Cravings 2.

The video shows off pages with four different recipes, including dish titles and photos. There’s even a title page for the breakfast section, framed by a candid shot of Teigen and her daughter Luna.

“Look who got the first edit of her cookbook,” Teigen playfully says, roving the camera across the recipes. “Here we go!”

Teigen hasn’t announced the final release date of her cookbook, but until then, we’ll tide you over with the recipes we’ve had a sneak peak at—plus some healthier versions for you to try at home.

New Year. New Food. Healthy eating starts here, with the Cooking Light Diet.

1) Whipped Honey Ricotta French Toast

While ricotta can be a healthy (and tasty) choice, our version relies on reduced-fat cream cheese for a luxe, creamy texture. Our casserole can easily be doubled to feed a crowd and comes together in just 45 minutes. Bonus? You can make it the night before and stick it in the oven whenever you’re ready for breakfast.

2) Blueberry Cream Cheese Pancakes

There’s nothing better than a stack of piping hot pancakes. We’ve lightened up this comforting classic by in swapping full-fat cream cheese for light sour cream.

3) Everything Bagel & Cream Cheese Breakfast Bake

We love how Teigen took a classic bagel flavor and incorporated it into an egg-based casserole, but we’ve taken one of our breakfast favorites a step further. Protein-packed smoked salmon and goat cheese will make this casserole a smash hit at your next brunch. This recipe packs a lot of power into each bite—it has 25 percent fewer calories, 7g less saturated fat, and over 600 mg less sodium than your average meat-and-cheese breakfast casserole.

4) Sweet Miso Butter Cod with Snap Peas

So maybe this wasn’t quite part of Teigen’s breakfast chapter, but this nourishing seafood dish could be a hit any time of day. While Teigen chose miso to steep her filet of cod, we relied on the pungent flavor of curry paste and a sprinkling of fresh snap peas to bring our dish to life. Each 6-ounce serving is just 277 calories.
