Mediterranean Diet Books and Resources
Books and ebooks
Our lifestyle books capture signature dishes of the Greek cuisine from a dietary perspective. We want to share our love for wonderfully delicious and nourishing foods that impact our body in the best of ways. As Dietitians and Nutritionists, our unapologetic passion for health and cooking shines throughout the book. For each recipe, you are provided with analysed nutritional information taking into account kilojoules, protein, carbohydrates, sugar, fat, saturated fat, sodium and fibre content of the meal. The flexibility allows you to follow our pre-existing meal plans or simply increase the awareness of the foods you are eating. We hope it inspires a new found love for cooking healthy, wholesome meals with extraordinary flavour to share with your family and friends.

We know that the Mediterranean diet is good for you – good for cardiovascular fitness, helps lower cholesterol and promotes overall good health and longevity.

My yiayia was as strong as a lion and always looked ten years younger than her age – there were always melitzanes and artichokes on the stove; sardines in olive oil for lunch. Good health is about the choices that we make – the Mediterranean diet makes those choices naturally. This book should always have been written, a lot of people are going to benefit. As Hippocrates once said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.

Mediterranean Eating – Cook. Eat. Live. – The title alone resonated with me the first time I heard it.
Being raised on a Mediterranean lifestyle, influenced one of my biggest passions – cooking. It brings me no greater joy than to prepare, cook and share Mediterranean inspired dishes with my family and friends; a tradition and mentality entrenched in our culture for generations.
I’m certain that after reading this book and trying these recipes for yourself, you will either be reassured or otherwise convinced that living a Mediterranean Lifestyle in every sense of the word will grant you longevity, happiness and a new zest for life. Your friends and family will be arguing for leftovers after every meal!

As our resident dietitians on 97.3FM, Desi and Lisa are two of the most proficient dietitians I’ve ever met and trust them to ensure the health of myself and my three boys.
Mediterranean Eating is not only a cookbook that is bursting with wonderfully tasty and healthy Mediterranean food, but also research that shows me these meals are great for my overall wellbeing.
The recipes are easy to follow, diverse and make busy working mums like me, look like I’ve been cooking them for years!
Try it and see what I mean.
