Unfortunately, I absolutely hate exercise.
And most vegetables.
So my main focus was to find yummy and healthy alternatives to some of the foods I was already eating so I could lose weight and not starve to death or get sick from spinach overdose.
Spinach overdose is a real thing, right?
Anyways, I was thrilled when I was contacted to review and give away Rocco DiSpirito’s new book, Now Eat This! Diet. Because although I’ve lost the weight I wanted to lose, just substituting even a few meals a week with his healthier options will help me keep it off.
For those of you who have some weight you’d like to lose quickly, this book comes with a 2 week program for dropping 10 pounds with little effort, while eating 6 meals a day.
Plus, everyone knows that eating a healthy meal totally cancels out the fact that you just ate the Marshmallow Peeps that were in your son’s Easter basket. So…even if you’re NOT dieting, this book is extremely important to your mental well-being.
The ingredients in Rocco’s recipes are easily accessible, which is super important to someone like me who lives in the boonies.
Seriously, have you ever tried to find crazy organic fancy stuff in a town of 3,500 people? Not happening.
Another thing I just loved about this book is that the first half is entirely devoted to things we need to know about making healthier substitutions, information on natural sweeteners, menu plans, shopping lists, and even a breakdown of how many calories different activities burn.
So basically, Rocco is not limiting you to the recipes in this book. With all the information he gives about nutrition, you can continue making better choices when eating out, and even when making your favorite family recipes.
Plus, there are tons of photos of his super cute mug all over the place. So yeah…that’s a definite bonus.
And lucky for us, I get to give one of these books to TWO of you guys!!
And…they’re totally autographed.
So you can sit and stare and trace the autograph with your index finger and think “Rocco totally touched this…Rocco totally touched this”.
Not that you would do that. Heh heh…me either.
