Happy Monday everyone!! This week’s giveaway is just awesome ~ If you are a fan of cookbooks with tons of pictures, menu plans and shopping lists, then, you are going to LOVE Rocco DiSpirito’s new cookbook. I actually met him at the very first BlogHERFood and tasted his cooking first hand ~ I can tell you his cooking is awesome!
Award-winning celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito changed his life and his health-without giving up the foods he loves or the flavor. He has lost more than 20 pounds, participated in dozens of triathlons, and-after an inspirational role as a guest chef on The Biggest Loser-changed his own diet and the caloric content of classic dishes on a larger scale. In NOW EAT THIS! DIET, complete with a foreword by Dr. Mehmet Oz.
HIs menu plans and recipes require little effort and he shares ideas on how to incorporate 6 meals a day and with the dishes you crave, like mac & cheese, meatloaf, BBQ pork chops, and chocolate malted milk shakes.
There are 75 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snack time, all with zero bad carbs, zero bad fats, zero sugar, and maximum flavor
Head to Amazon.com to get your copy and don’t worry about getting it messy in the kitchen cooking 6 meals a day because you can win a pristine hand signed copy direct from Rocco himself! Rocco has hooked me up with 4 signed copies of Now Eat This! Diet to give away to my readers!!
I LOVE how each recipe lists the calories next to it in the HUGE index in the front. I am all over that Pho and Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato Roll!
The book includes techniques to help you learn how to cook like a pro
Did I mention the pictures? The photography in this cookbook is AMAZING….I found myself drooling over each page saying I NEED to make this, and this, and this…..just based on the pictures alone!
Rocky Road Oatmeal!
Red Beet, Goat Cheese & Walnut Salad!
I really like how he shows the way he “healthified” each recipe with before/after fat and calorie counts.
Plus tips on how to save even more on the calories in each recipe.
Now, here is the part I think I FLIPPED OUT OVER THE MOST! If you are counting points, as in WEIGHT WATCHERS POINTS+, he has included the Food Value Points (translation ~ points+).
I calculated practically EVERY recipe in the book and it was spot on EXACT with the points+ values
I LOVE it when the points+ values happen in cookbooks I LOVE
Ok, I will stop ~ All I can say is that you will LOVE this book! It is loaded with recipes, tips, menu plans, shopping lists and a ton of great ideas if you need a boost in your healthy living lifestyle.
Rocco has given me ONE RECIPE TO SHARE with you all right now as a teaser
