Add Joy and Vitality to Your Life the Mediterranean Way
Give your meals a Mediterranean makeover and get on the path toward lifelong health and wellness. Named the healthiest diet in the world for the fifth year in a row, the Mediterranean lifestyle centers on nutrient-rich fats, fresh veggies and balanced portions of protein all packed with vibrant flavors. Neda Varbanova makes this way of eating achievable for everyone. Her simple family-friendly recipes and 30-day meal plan provide a daily roadmap to forming healthy habits that can help you lose weight, sleep better, get glowing skin and reduce your risk for disease.
Inside, Neda shares over 70 mouthwatering recipes for authentic Mediterranean meals with a fresh twist. Traditional staples like comforting Greek Lemon Chicken Soup (also known as Avgolemono), juicy Greek Meatballs (Keftedes) and succulent Greek Stuffed Vegetables (Gemista) are cooked with lean proteins and heart-healthy fats like extra-virgin olive oil. Reinvigorated favorites such as Low-Carb Eggplant Moussaka and Seared Scallops with Pesto and Zucchini Noodles are bursting with fresh veggies that satisfy carb cravings in a lighter way.
Packed with wellness tips, low-carb ingredient swaps and luscious full-page photography with every recipe, this cookbook will become your daily source of inspiration to eat well and feel great.
