Staff Picks Giada's Feel Good Food: My Healthy Recipes and Secrets

Giada's Feel Good Food: My Healthy Recipes and Secrets by Giada De Laurentis

What makes this cook book different from her others? She’s included the calorie count and nutritional analysis for each recipe, along with a colored icon that signifies if the dish is GF (gluten free), DF (dairy free), V(vegan), or VG (vegetarian). It also contains the serving size for each recipe.

Giada gives readers a peek into how she takes care of herself, from skin care, to exercise and rest. She says, “everyone is different; …(this is a )…personal look into how I keep my body and mind in a happy and healthy balance.”… “My philosophy on eating: Eat a little of everything, but not a lot of anything.”

Giada is quick to say this is not a diet book. She is just showing readers how she came about the routines and food choices that have worked for her and her family over time. There are 120 recipes that are her favorites. She has ingredients that are easy to find and simple instructions.
