9780060854218: Mediterranean Women Stay Slim, Too: Eating to Be Sexy, Fit, and Fabulous!

Mireille Guiliano has hit a nerve with her "New York Times" bestselling "French Women Don't Get Fat". Women are fed up with a diet-crazy culture that relies on guilt, low self-esteem, and the say no to food mentality. Most of us would like nothing better than to eat like the French - rich, fatty, buttery foods, red meat, bread, cheese - instead of like the typical dieting staple of cardboard-flavoured low-carb, low-fat, "health bars." But while French women might not get fat, a healthy diet of nicotine and Veuve Cliquot is hardly the key to a long, happy life. Here's where Melissa Kelly, a respected chef and dedicated sensualist, will step in and teach women to live healthy, spiritually rewarding, fulfilling - and thin! - lives. Mediterranean women enjoy food, but don't obsess over every calorie and fat gram. They eat for enjoyment and they delight in fresh ingredients and simple preparations. Cooking and eating are a celebration of family and togetherness. Mediterranean women revel in the preparation of natural, whole foods, bringing them closer to the way food should be treated - as something to enjoy, not fear.

And studies continue to show that olive oil has incredible health benefits - the Med diet is not just delicious, it's healthy too. Chef Kelly will offer a holistic look at the benefits of the Mediterranean diet. From offering 50 delicious, healthy recipes, to teaching women to begin to appreciate the nurturing and sensual pleasures of preparing and eating great food with family, to narrating a trip to the market to choose fresh, seasonal ingredients, this book has it all.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 211 x 147 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For centuries, Mediterranean women--from classic beauty Helen of Troy to our own reel -time goddess Sophia Loren--have known the secret of healthy eating, living, and being. Mediterranean women have long embraced a natural vitality, sensual earthiness, grace, and warmth that allows them to be authentically themselves, to live long, spiritually rewarding--and thin!--lives, freed from empty calories, empty diet promises, impossible standards, and a say no to food mentality. Thanks to the influence of cooking lessons in her Italian grandmother s kitchen, Melissa Kelly, co-owner and executive chef of Primo Restaurant, revels in sharing how every woman can extract the essence of the Mediterranean spirit and make it uniquely her own. From the cuisines of the Mediterranean and the Middle East, women learn how to maintain a healthy weight even as they discover and delight in the Mediterranean approach to food: the joy of the colors, textures, aromas, and flavors.In addition, science now confirms that eating the Mediterranean way, getting most of the fat in your diet from olive oil instead of from meat and other sources of animal fats, is heart-healthy, immune-boosting . . . and, yes, slimming, too!Mediterranean is a way of living, a celebration of family and togetherness woven with pleasure, laughter, and sensual delight. Flavor, variety, abundance, love of family, and soulful adventure are what Mediterranean women embody. Chef Kelly helps women bring these traditional qualities of Mediterranean hearth and health into their own homes.Overflowing with a cornucopia of more than one hundred diverse and mouth-watering recipes, as well as a detailed menu planner, Mediterranean Women Stay Slim, Too gives women delicious food to eat in the context of an easy-to-follow plan. While sampling everything from traditional Hummus to Quick-Cooked Salmon with Fall Vegetable Pistou, to exploring the complex and satisfying layering of flavors in Prosciutto, Fennel, and Pear Salad with Persimmon Vinaigrette, you ll join women in enjoying the timeless, artful Mediterranean way of eating well and living a long, sensuous, beautiful life.
