You don't have to be a multimillionaire or a movie star and own an oceanfront estate in the Hamptons to eat well, stay fit, and look fantastic. As Dr. Fred Pescatore demonstrated in his bestseller The Hamptons Diet, anyone can lose weight, get healthy, and look great while eating a wide variety of delicious and sumptuous foods. Whether you're preparing a meal for two or hosting a party, The Hamptons Diet Cookbook gives you the cooking and entertaining secrets of the rich, famous, and thin!
In The Hamptons Diet Cookbook, Dr. Fred shows just how well you can eat without spending a fortune at the grocery store. With the help of celebrated Mediterranean-style chef Jeff Harter, he presents more than 200 mouthwatering recipes guaranteed to delight as you slim down. Once you've enjoyed these amazing dishes, you'll find everyone asking for second helpings.
While preparing and eating the fabulous dishes in The Hamptons Diet Cookbook, you'll quickly discover why many celebrities and Hollywood stars swear by the Hamptons Diet. Its hearty breakfasts, luxurious lunches, scrumptious snacks, delectable dinners, and yummy desserts emphasize fresh fruits and vegetables, wholesome whole grains, deliciously healthy oils, and satisfying proteins in creative and delicate combinations. The Hamptons Diet Cookbook includes enough options to satisfy any palate.
To start your day, you'll find an assortment of extraordinary omelets. Or you can whip up a batch of Buckwheat Crepes with Mascarpone and Strawberries, enjoy the warm and crunchy sweetness of Grandma's Granola, or delight in the sophisticated Four-Onion Frittata with Sage and Asiago.
Everyone loves a leisurely lunch, but if you have to create something on the run, you'll find plenty of fast and satisfying midday meals, from tasty Turkey Wraps to numerous variations on the Ultimate Chicken Salad Sandwich. When there's time to sit and enjoy, you can make the Chinese Chicken Salad with Tamari/Macadamia Dressing, Shellfish Cocktail, Main Beach Fish Chowder, or Moroccan Beef Kabobs.
Among the greatest revelations in The Hamptons Diet Cookbook is how divine a healthy dinner can be. Tempting starters like Broccoli Cheese Soup pave the way for a host of elegant entrées, including Broiled Veal Chops with Sage and Rosemary, Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri, and Prosciutto- and Provolone-Stuffed Chicken Breasts. You'll also find an abundance of wonderful fish recipes such as Baked Cod with Orange-Saffron Cream Sauce, Macadamia Coconut Salmon, and Shrimp Diablo.
Complete with copious dessert, hors d'oeuvre, and side-dish recipes, a host of entertaining tips, and a selection of glorious color photos that are sure to whet your appetite, The Hamptons Diet Cookbook does more than help you lose weight, keep it off, and improve your health. It will make you wish you'd been eating this well all your life.
