Most of us need to take better care of ourselves. We are working longer hours, getting less rest, staying sedentary during downtime, and eating unhealthier day after day. A number of us will try watching what we eat, going on a cleanse, or following a fad diet-and yet few will find a lasting solution that will address our whole being. Luckily, we don't have to go to such extremesinstead, we can go to the Mediterranean! Well, the Mediterranean lifestyle at least.
The Good Life! Mediterranean Diet Cookbook introduces not only the healthy, nutritious eating patterns of the people of the Mediterranean, but also their day-to-day habits that have been proven just as important as the food they eat.
Growing up in a Greek-American family, chef Dorothy Calimeris began practicing a Mediterranean diet as early as she can recall, long before doctors recommended it as a heart-healthy "diet." Ingredients like buttery olives, creamy yogurt, and colorful vegetables were staples of everyday meals, while roasted meats, wine, and sweets were enjoyed in moderation. Today Dorothy realizes how good life was back then, how important it is to make the right food choices now, and how easy it can be to practice the principles of Mediterranean diet every day of the week!
