The Mediterranean Diet for Every Day
is that there is no one "Mediterranean Diet." With so many cultures surrounding the sea that the diet is named for, there are multiple avenues to take. The basic dietary staples of olive oil, seafood, fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins have been proven to lead to longer, healthier lives. This book teaches you how to shop for and prepare food based on these dietary hubs, with recipes for every meal including spiced sweet potato pancakes and baked halibut with mango salsa.

gluten-free-eating


It may sound insulting, but the Idiot's Guide series is a fantastic resource for seemingly daunting subjects. Gluten-Free Eating is a perfect example. The book explains what gluten is, where it can be found, and what gluten-free grains you can substitute when preparing meals. The book extends its expertise to restaurants, entertaining others, and managing the diet for children as well, while still providing all sorts of mouth-watering recipes such as salmon corn chowder and lemon poppy seed scones.
