Mediterranean Cookbooks for Health and Longevity

Who knows where this is?

Here are some Christmas gift book suggestions for someone trying to eat healthier via the Mediterranean diet.

  • The Mediterranean Heart Diet: How It Works and How to Reap the Health Benefits, with Recipes to Get You Started by Helen V. Fisher.
    [More than 140 delicious and healthy recipes from an experienced cookbook author and a doctorate-level clinical nutrition specialist.] 
  • The Mediterranean Diet by Marissa Cloutier and Eve Adamson.  [The Mediterranean-style recipes here get you close to an ovo-lacto-vegetarian diet.  The authors complicate the Oldways-Willett Mediterranean Pyramid and promote soy milk products.  Nevertheless, this is “good eats.”]
  • The Mediterranean Kitchen by Joyce Esersky Goldstein.
  • The Essential Mediterranean: How Regional Cooks Transform Key Ingredients into the World’s Favorite Cuisines by Nancy Harmon Jenkins. 
  • Mediterranean Diet Cookbook: A Delicious Alternative for Lifelong Health by Nancy Harmon Jenkins.  Updated in 2008 as The New Mediterranean Diet Cookbook
  • Mediterranean Cooking by Paula Wolfert.

    And I would add your own, “Advanced Mediterranean Diet”.
    Your “Mexitalian” is simple & delicious – and a firm favourite at my place 🙂
