The Mediterranean Diet: Quick and Authentic Recipes for Every Season (Volume 1) - Julia Garcia

THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET quick authentic recipes for every season by JULIA GARCIA
Since my husbands heart attack and talking to the nutritionist we switched to mainly a Mediterranean lifestyle so I was excited to find this cookbook.
Starts out with what a Med diet consists of and then goes into the recipes. Never though of making our own olive oil and we do use enough of it and this book talks about what kind is the best for your needs.
Love how the chapters are broken up into and also has a 7 day meal plan along with shopping list, also a conversion tables and other charts. Like food pyramid and the explanations of what one should have every day vs. once a month.
We have high amounts of fresh grown vegetables in the summer months and our pantry has over 30 spices and herbs to choose from so we are right on track.
Process of making kefir seems to be similar to yogurt-not sure where to get the ingredients kefir grains. We do make our own yogurt in our pressure cooker and it's now after much experimentation coming out great.
Love the color photos. Each recipe has a beautiful color photo of the dish, which allergy free dish, and a summary of the dish.
Prep and cooking time along with servings. Some traditional historic facts about the dish are told.
Fresh ingredient list and how to make the dish along with some nutritional information-FAT content is NOT broken up into good and bad fat and there is no sodium levels.
Tomato stew with rice would be our choice to try. Find some fo the ingredients a bit out of my league: sea bream, eel, squid but i might use the recipe for fish we do eat.
Love the suggestions of making the dish different and other variations to try also for the reicpes.
Cabbage rolls using turkey sounds awesome!  Fascinated by the marinades where you can make a dish something completely different with spices used.
Excerpt from another book by the author is included.  
What I like about this book is it's not only about the recipes of good clean eating but it's a lifestyle where other components come into play: sleep and activity.
Love how the book is broken up into the chapters and all the information is included about the dish-love the summaries and historic facts. Even though some of the names sound a bit too high class you can always substitute for the foods you do buy due to your own dietary needs.
Received this from the author via LibraryThing and this is my honest review.

Review: Cooking with Coconut by Ramin Ganeshram
Cooking with Coconut: 125 Recipes for Healthy Eating; Delicious Uses for Every Form: Oil, Flour, Water, Milk, Cream, Sugar, Dried & Shredded - Ramin Ganeshram

Rating: 4*



Coconut is healthy and delicious. It is also native to cuisines around the world, including Thai, Indian, Filipino, Vietnamese, and many Caribbean cultures. Cooking with Coconut offers a tantalising taste of this tropical superfood's culinary diversity, with 133 original recipes using coconut in all its forms. Options span the menu, from breakfast dishes like Savory Coconut Crepes to dinner and dessert dishes like Asparagus with Shallots and Shredded Coconut, Coconut Pork Kabobs, and Coconut Rum Creme Brulee. Ramin Ganeshram, an award-winning food journalist, dishes up everything home cooks and health-conscious eaters need to know to fully enjoy this delectable powerhouse!



I simply adore coconut and already use coconut oil, sugar, milk, flour, water and desiccated and shredded coconut in a few recipes. With this book, I now have a lot more recipes at hand so I can include this gorgeous fruit at every meal time! Okay, I may be getting a bit carried away, but I'm sure you get the picture. The recipes I've tried have been easy to follow, they aren't too difficult, nor do they have you juggling all manner of pots and pans at the same time as trying to keep track of dozens of ingredients. Coconut lovers...you need this book!

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing a review copy in return for my honest opinion.
