Healthy Eating for Life : Over 100 Simple and Tasty Recipes
by Robin Ellis and Hope James




Overview -

What do we eat to maximize our health? For many years health professionals have promoted the benefits of a Mediterranean diet--where olive oil, tomatoes, legumes and grains are staples. People who eat this way have less heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's and type 2 diabetes. But how does an American cook incorporate those kinds of ingredients into a daily menu that is also simple to prepare and so tasty that the entire family embraces the change? Healthy Eating for Life is the second cookbook by acclaimed BBC/Masterpiece Theatre actor and author Robin Ellis since he moved from England to the south of France. Known locally in the food markets of Lautrec not for his acting career, but also as "the Anglais who cooks," Robin had developed a passion for simple, healthy food--a passion that fills the pages of this book. It is his bid to inspire more people to eat delicious, home-cooked food as part of a lifestyle that promotes optimal health. Diagnosed in 1999 with type 2 diabetes, Robin has changed the way he eats. Doing so, and adding more exercise to his daily routine, he managed his blood sugar sufficiently to avoid taking medication for six years. He believes that anyone can learn to cook dishes that are simple, delicious and healthy. Recipes include: Chilled Curried Apple Soup; Sweet Potato, Fennel and Smoky Bacon au Gratin; Cauliflower Roasted with Garlic and Coriander Seeds; Turkish Spinach with Rice; Smoky Spanish Fish Stew; Chicken and Leeks with Lemon; Chickpea, Leek and Fennel Curry; Peaches in Honey and Lime; and much more.
