Publisher's Summary

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:

  • Develop a clear meal plan regimen
  • Use fresh ingredients
  • Make healthy meals

Beautiful book

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.

Well worth it

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.

Healthy and delicious!

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,

Tastes great, lost weight!

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.

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!!!!

Excellent Book

The book is informational and educational, and it includes a sample 30-day meal plan as well as several recipes. I find it easy to follow, the recipes are clear and easy, and taste really good. We bought it along with the Mediterranean Sow Cooker Cookbook (my husband love soups and stews) and find the two provide all we need to get started.

Diet book

The Mediterranean Diet is founded on the idea of eating fresh whole foods as a means for maintaining your health rather than dieting for a specific body type. The Mediterranean Diet is not about limiting yourself at all, it’s all about maximizing the flavors in your food by creating tons of variety in your dishes and enjoying your meals with friends and family
