Bestselling author, Emmy Award-winning cohost of The Good Dish and the upcoming 8th season of FOX’s hit series MasterChef Junior, and mother of four Daphne Oz shares her best tips for how to reward yourself, with 150 simply delicious recipes in a cookbook you’ll return to again and again to eat clean, feel good, and have fun doing it all!
Daphne Oz loves food. In fact, she’s built her career around this love of exploring and enjoying the world, bite after wonderful bite. But she knows first-hand how endless indulging robs you of the truly memorable moments – and makes it hard to stay healthy. On the other hand, restricting ourselves with too many rules means we stop enjoying mealtime and start missing out.
With four young children and a busy career, Daphne is intimately familiar with how hard it can be to find the right balance in our health and fitness goals, especially when living a full life. In this engaging book, filled with useful tips and gorgeous photography to inspire health and happiness every day, Daphne shares the techniques she’s used to get her mind, energy and body back on track after each pregnancy—without ever losing the joy of cooking, the fun of mealtime, and the stress-free pleasure of doing it intuitively.
In the times when she’s looking to bring her body back into balance, Daphne lives by just four simple rules that remove the guesswork from healthy eating and let us relax and enjoy our meals again, knowing we’re making great choices. Those rules are:
no glutenno refined sugarlimit dairytake the weekend off
Eat Your Heart Out includes a range of simple-but-special, deliciously nourishing recipes like
Gluten-Free Banana Pumpkin MuffinsBarbecue Pulled Chicken with Crispy Smashed Japanese YamsSpicy Crunchy Cauliflower Tacos with Ranch SlawFeel-Good Turkey MeatloafNori PopcornBanana BruleePistachio Dark Chocolate Energy Truffles
Your brain is your most important ally and most perilous foe on the journey toward long-term health and happiness, and Eat Your Heart Out equips readers to get their energy back, feel good and confident in their skin, and do it all while enjoying meals they love with people they love. Being healthy is a feeling of abundance, a chance to do and be all the things you want with your life. Daphne’s plan is a flexible approach of “and,” not “or,” so you can say goodbye to choices that don’t serve you and welcome all the pleasure that intuitively knowing how to feel good brings.
"I think it almost goes without saying: I don't really do the whole deprivation thing," writes The Good Dish cohost Oz (Relish) in this down-to-earth guide to mindful cooking. Rather than "focus on how not to eat," Oz takes a "balanced" approach to better eating by avoiding gluten and refined sugar and limiting dairy on five days of the week, and eating whatever she wishes the remaining two. Bringing readers along on her endeavor to eat clean(ish), she shares over 100 healthy and flavorful recipes. Standout meatless options including barbecue mushroom tacos with tomatillo salsa, and branzino stuffed with red onion, lemon, and oregano lean on herbs for a kick, while desserts, such as gingersnap granola bars and chocolate almond butter banana coins, let readers satisfy their sweet tooths guilt-free by swapping in fruit and date syrup for sugar. Oz's introductions to each recipe are a piquant mix of the enlightening (for the apple, celery, and cucumber juice, she explains how celery juice "may help stimulate production of good stomach acid that keeps your digestion on track") and the anecdotal, and her creative dishes from her poblano chopped chicken salad to her smoothies with bee pollen never sacrifice taste. Those looking to adapt to a healthier diet shouldn't pass this up. Agent: Dave Larabell, CAA.
