Are you burned out on your current dietary routine? Do you feel that you could use just a little bit of pep in your step that your daily double espresso shots at Starbucks are failing to provide? Well, go ahead and put down the heavily caffeinated coffees and energy drinks because the Mediterranean diet can reinvigorate your whole mind and body in ways that even the best cappuccino never could!
This diet takes a holistic approach toward cleansing and revamping the body's natural propensity for weight loss, health, and stamina. People have often admired the residents of the Mediterranean for their health and longevity. Images of the old man in southern Italy drinking red wine and carrying on like a teenager might come to mind. Or of the woman in Greece who after a simple lunch of rice and fish is able to till the fields all day long!
These are some common tropes to be sure, but they are tropes with truth attached to their overused thematic imagery. For many years it has been well known that the countries along the Mediterranean have had quite a stranglehold on health. The longer life expectancies and fewer visits to the emergency room are testament to this fact.
So for the rest of us living in nations that have obesity rates, and related illnesses skyrocketing through the roof, we would be smart to follow the lead of these communities of the Mediterranean. This book provides you with a clear and concise 30 day plan to do just that. With a comprehensive list of recipes that cover breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between this diet will have you off to a great start before you even begin!
In this book you will learn how you can:
I really like this cookbook! It has a LOT of information and makes a great reference book. I've completed at least 6-8 recipes and have been happy with them all. If you're considering this purchase, buy it, it will make a nice addition to most collections.
Fantastic! Easy instructions to follow. Made 2 recipes (vegetable broth soup and chopped Mediterranean salad). Both fantastic. Lots of great information and helpful information.
Awesome cookbook! So many recipes and excellent illustrations and instructions - especially love the sidebars that explain specific things related to recipes...for instance, how to cut up a butternut squash.
I purchased this book for a birthday gift. The gift was for a friend who had open heart surgery, and was looking to change his diet. I asked his wife what we could buy him, and she told me he liked to cook. I knew this was the book. Easy recipes,
It's helped us shift our eating habits away from meat, potatoes and pasta - although all three are included here - to healthier options. I've lost 11 pounds in a month of eating dinners from this cookbook and following their Mediterranean food pyramid.
Great book with beautiful color photos. Has an eating plan for each day along with a grocery list . This book is perfect to get started eating this way right away. All the work is done for you.
After reviewing the book, I am very happy with the plan and meal suggestions. Common sense on healthy foods. Looking forward to trying the recipes and the plan. Doctor also suggested this plan.
Very easy read. If you are wanting to learn more this subject, I would highly recommend. Highly recommend.
Something are obvious, in this diet but I felt this book was REALLY good for a beginner, beginner! If you're not a beginner, it might be a bit boring, and redundant. Still, I really like this. It has a few recipes I've not seen in other books! Worth having!!!!
So far I love this recipe book. Easy to follow, the recipes are simple and you won't have to drive all around trying to find exotic ingredients. Very simple, well done and delicious recipes.
