Mareya Ibrahim, nutritionist, award-winning inventor, and the signature chef and meal plan designer for the bestselling diet book The Daniel Plan, has written her own cookbook, EAT LIKE YOU GIVE A FORK: The Real Dish on Eating to Thrive (June 4, 2019; St. Martin’s Griffin, $29.99). According to Mareya, no one should do anything that starts with “die.” Instead, she invites readers to escape the dreaded diet mentality with a more positive approach to healthy eating. Including eighty “forking delicious” recipes that support eight essential nutritional strategies, Mareya encourages readers to remake their kitchens, taste buds, bodies, and energy levels with honest and easy-to-understand recipes, including:
Zucchini Noodles with Romesco Sauce
Low-Sodium Umami Bone Broth
You Glow Smoothie
No-Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Mareya’s fun and holistic approach to food will encourage readers to laugh and get serious about their cooking at the same time. The eight essential strategies Mareya bases her recipes on are: Reset Your Taste Buds, Stock Your Real Kitchen, Get Up on Greens, Take a Vegan Fast Break, Go Gluten-Free Super Grains, Fill in with Good Fat, Become Real Dense, and Live the 90/10 Rule.
With over twenty-five years in the food industry and as the host of the popular Facebook Live show The Real Dish, as well as the podcast Recipes For Your Best Life, Mareya’s knowledgeable guidance and great palate will make readers rethink the word diet!
