Have you ever wondered what makes the Mediterranean diet so healthy? Do you enjoy olives, tomatoes, Chouriço and Mozzarella, basil, rosemary and oregano, grapes, figs, and dates; and would you like to learn more about the substances they contain? Then this book is for you! The Mediterranean diet, designated as an ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity’, has a reputation of being particularly beneficial to your health and for reducing the risk of diseases like cardiovascular disorders. Read this book to find out which chemical compounds contribute to these health benefits. Typical ingredients of the Mediterranean diet include olive oils, fresh and dried vegetables and fruits, cereals, moderate amounts of fish, dairy and meat, and various condiments and spices, typically accompanied by wine and infusions. The book will introduce you to the most typical ingredients, providing information about their use in Mediterranean cuisine and explaining more about the healthy substances they contain – from their chemistry to their occurrence in the foods and the resulting intake. Summarizing important facts and data from available scientific literature, this book even gives recommendations for guidelines to a healthy diet – guidelines that are becoming more and more important. In recent years, it has been observed that nutritional habits in the geographical area have started to deviate further and further away from the typical Mediterranean nutritional pattern, representing an alarming trend that this book also critically addresses, since the WHO has reported increases in obesity and malnutrition in the Mediterranean area. Illustrations of important chemical compound structures, as well as appetizing photos of select ingredients for Mediterranean dishes, accompany the text.

Cooking Mediterranean recipes isn't as hard as you think! Now, Dr. Angelo Acquista, author of the #1 bestselling Mediterranean diet book, brings you 25 easy Mediterranean recipes based on the 7 Sicilian Superfoods that promote weight loss and good health for life. Even if you've tried a Mediterranean diet cookbook before, these new recipes will spice up your life (and your health).What is the Mediterranean Diet Meal Plan?The Mediterranean Diet Meal Plan is a meal plan based on 7 Sicilian “superfoods” that Dr. Angelo Acquista (author and native of Sicily) has identified as foods that can improve your health and your life. For years Dr. Acquista has counseled his patients about weight loss and now he shares that knowledge so that everyone can learn to live and eat in “abbondanza,” the Sicilian way. A Mediterranean diet plan is an excellent way to eat better, lose weight, and keep that weight off. It's easy to start, easy to maintain, and the foods you will use can be found at any local grocery. Food preparation is as simple as grilling, broiling, boiling, and baking – all of which make for some delicious dishes.What is the Mediterranean Diet Food Pyramid?Created by Oldways (a non-profit organization that promotes healthy eating), the Harvard School of Public Health, and the European Office of the World Health Organization, the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid is a visual representation of the classic Mediterranean Diet, which promotes lifelong good health. At the base is a physically active lifestyle in which meals are shared with others and there is an appreciation for eating healthy, delicious foods. The second largest portion of the pyramid is formed by the traditional staples of Mediterranean cuisine including fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and olive oil, as well as healthful herbs and spices. Seafood is next, with poultry, dairy, meats, and sweets making up the smallest portion of the pyramid. All of these foods create a healthy and delicious meal palette and endless recipe opportunities. Take your own shot at eating within the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid by using this new recipe book from Dr. Angelo Acquista, “Mediterranean Meals.” It's a compilation of appetizing, easy to prepare recipes in the Sicilian tradition using all of the delicious foods recommended by the Mediterranean food pyramid. There are over 100 recipes in his first book, “The Mediterranean Prescription,” as well.How can you set up a Mediterranean diet plan menu?Many people feel more confident with a new diet plan when they have a weekly or monthly menu to choose from. It helps you stay on track, be prepared for quick meals, and find the right snacks. If you've been following “The Mediterranean Prescription” by Dr. Angelo Acquista, you may already be familiar with the two-week weight-loss stage that includes delicious recipes that are easy to prepare and help you lose up to 10 pounds right away. So how can you extend that meal plan beyond the first two weeks if you'd like a little more guidance every day? First, as recommended in this new e-book “Mediterranean Meals,” stock up on the 7 Sicilian superfoods – olive oil, cruciferous vegetables, berries, nuts, fish, legumes, and tomatoes. Those ingredients will provide a delicious, healthy foundation to any dish. “Mediterranean Meals” will give you 25 new dishes as well, then you can mix and match from there. Switch out one cruciferous vegetable (e.g., broccoli in place of escarole, kale instead of collards) for another, and wind up with a completely new tasting recipe. Or try adding flaked canned tuna to a salad recipe to make it a meal. When you have the right foundation with a Mediterranean style meal plan, the possibilities are endless.So, here it is: From Angelo Acquista, M.D., author of the #1 bestselling Mediterranean diet book, this brand new e-book of 25 delicious new recipes based on the 7 Sicilian Superfoods that promote weight loss and good health for life.

In this updated and greatly enlarged edition of her Book of Middle Eastern Food, Claudia Roden re-creates a classic. The book was originally published here in 1972 and was hailed by James Beard as "a landmark in the field of cookery"; this new version represents the accumulation of the author's thirty years of further extensive travel throughout the ever-changing landscape of the Middle East, gathering recipes and stories. Now Ms. Roden gives us more than 800 recipes, including the aromatic variations that accent a dish and define the country of origin: fried garlic and cumin and coriander from Egypt, cinnamon and allspice from Turkey, sumac and tamarind from Syria and Lebanon, pomegranate syrup from Iran, preserved lemon and harissa from North Africa. She has worked out simpler approaches to traditional dishes, using healthier ingredients and time-saving methods without ever sacrificing any of the extraordinary flavor, freshness, and texture that distinguish the cooking of this part of the world. Throughout these pages she draws on all four of the region's major cooking styles: - The refined haute cuisine of Iran, based on rice exquisitely prepared and embellished with a range of meats, vegetables, fruits, and nuts - Arab cooking from Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan--at its finest today, and a good source for vegetable and bulgur wheat dishes - The legendary Turkish cuisine, with its kebabs, wheat and rice dishes, yogurt salads, savory pies, and syrupy pastries - North African cooking, particularly the splendid fare of Morocco, with its heady mix of hot and sweet, orchestrated to perfection in its couscous dishes and tagines From the tantalizing mezze--those succulent bites of filled fillo crescents and cigars, chopped salads, and stuffed morsels, as well as tahina, chickpeas, and eggplant in their many guises--to the skewered meats and savory stews and hearty grain and vegetable dishes, here is a rich array of the cooking that Americans embrace today. No longer considered exotic--all the essential ingredients are now available in supermarkets, and the more rare can be obtained through mail order sources (readily available on the Internet)--the foods of the Middle East are a boon to the home cook looking for healthy, inexpensive, flavorful, and wonderfully satisfying dishes, both for everyday eating and for special occasions. From the Hardcover edition.
