NEW YORK, NY, October 19, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- James Beard award-winning chef and #1 New York Times best-selling author Rocco DiSpirito creates an instant cookbook classic with the debut of Rocco's Healthy + Delicious: More Than 200 (Mostly) Plant-Based Recipes for Everyday Life, launching today. The health advocate moves away from the diet theory focus of his previous bestsellers and delivers what people have been asking for - a fun cookbook filled with hundreds of quick and easy recipes to help them live a healthier and more delicious life!
Inspired by recipes DiSpirito develops for his fresh meal delivery service, Rocco's Healthy + Delicious shows readers how to incorporate more local, fresh, organic, real food into their menus. Each flavorful recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, carb and calorie corrected, and makes cooking approachable by pairing a beautiful, inviting photo by every dish.
Featuring exciting recipes for mornings, satisfying mains and decadent desserts and chocolates, the book also offers entire chapters on veggie burgers, avocado dishes, smoothies and drinks, bites and snacks, soups and salads, sides and sauces. Designed to support how consumers today eat, these sections reflect how people graze or eat what they are craving and no longer subscribe to the traditional three meals a day paradigm.
"Over and over people have told me that what they really want are more recipes to live a healthy life. It was my privilege to create a cookbook with nearly 250 delicious recipes that will change your health and well-being for the better," said Rocco DiSpirito. "Many of these dishes come together in as little as five to ten minutes and offer innovative ways to incorporate more nutritious real food into your day."
DiSpirito's vision for mostly plant-based eating encourages readers to:
- Eat more plants and aim to make fresh, organic fruits and vegetables the star of meals, with high-quality meat playing a supporting role
- Ditch dairy which can have an inflammatory effect in the body
- Choose gluten-free grains as gluten can promote chronic inflammation and trigger leptin resistance making one prone to overeating
Rocco's Healthy + Delicious also includes must-have staples to create a plant-based pantry, tips for shopping at farmers markets and reasons to choose organic foods. A kitchen essential, DiSpirito's newest cookbook will empower readers to enjoy cooking creative, healthy and delicious meals every day.
