Revue de presse

Much of this book is taken from the web site, which Watson and Thelander created in 2004. Watson chronicles living through a horrific motorcycle accident that nearly killed him as a teenager in the 1980s; his recovery was spent living with an uncle and aunt in Britain who ate meals of pasta, beans, vegetables, rice, eggs, nuts, olive oil, and fruits. He then went to Australia, where he met Thelander, and together they started cooking and eating a diet of Mediterranean and Asian food. Their philosophy is not earth-shattering-eat wholesome food, be physically active, and make time for relaxation. Approximately half of the text is devoted to a discussion of this lifestyle, including suggestions for exercise and relaxation and sample menus. It appears that the authors are self-taught, but the book is sprinkled with results of scholarly studies, some of which are included in a bibliography. The rest of the work contains 150 recipes for pasta, stir-fries, pizza, soups, desserts, etc., which are simple and easy to prepare, with tomatoes, garlic, peppers, fish, chicken, and beans as the main ingredients. Recommended for libraries with patrons who are interested in a lifestyle not just a diet.
—Christine Bulson, SUNY at Oneonta Lib. (Library Journal, May 15, 2007)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Indulge yourself with tasty and satisfying foods like pasta dishes, stir-fries, curries, risottos, noodle dishes, and sushi, all washed down with a glass of wine or beer. Stay active but don't bother with a formal exercise regimen, and set aside time every day to relax and unwind. You may find it hard to believe, but eating and living this way can help you stay lean and healthy, substantially reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer, and increase your chances of living longer. People from Mediterranean and Asian cultures have been living like this-and reaping the rewards-for more than 5,000 years.

Now, in this unique cookbook and guide, Ric Watson and his wife, Trudy Thelander, demonstrate just how easy it is to realize the benefits of the MediterrAsian way-benefits that numerous scientific studies have documented over the last half century. They explain the common features of Mediterranean and Asian lifestyles-abundant amounts of plant foods and fish, small amounts of red meat, moderate alcohol consumption, physical activity, and time set aside to relax-and show you step by step how to make them part of your life. When you eat the MediterrAsian way, there's no skimping on taste-or satisfaction. You'll feast on more than 150 delicious recipes, including favorites like Pasta Primavera, Thai Chicken Stir-Fry, and Ham, Mushroom, and Tomato Pizza. You'll savor the intriguing flavors of Vietnamese Shrimp and Vegetable Rice Paper Rolls, Moroccan Stew with Couscous, and Teriyaki Chicken Noodles. And if you're in the mood for a burger or hot dog, Watson and Thelander offer several deliciously healthy versions.

The book walks you through MediterrAsian food basics, shows you how to substitute daily activities for time at the gym, and explains how to take time out to enjoy life and relax. To help you plan your meals, it provides an easy-to-follow five-step MediterrAsian Balanced Meal System. There's even a fourteen-day MediterrAsian plan as well as example lifestyle scenarios to help you get into the swing of things. Complete with 50 tempting color food photographs, The MediterrAsian Way is all you need to enjoy the benefits of MediterrAsian living-starting today!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of my favorite cookbooks! 12 juillet 2013
Par Olga - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I found the website first, and then after falling in love with that, I decided to buy the cookbook also. I found that this was one of my most worthwhile investments! Not only are the recipes in the 2nd half of the book simple to make and absolutely delicious, but the first half of the book provided a lot of very interesting and beneficial information. I knew that moderation of some foods and having all food groups is important to having a healthy diet and improving your health, but I never realized how many important vitamins, minerals, and fats are found in all different foods. My favorite example of how the Mediterranean and Asian diets differ from the Western diet was shown in a diagram. I was shocked that there was double the amount of calories in the Western diet, but only half of the food involved! I think some of the most important information in this cookbook lies not with the recipes, which are simple and delicious, but in the first half of the book, which provides insight to the different food groups, and how each compliments the other providing a well balanced diet. I shared this book and the website with my co-workers, family, and friends and they were as drawn to the information as I was! Thank you for an amazing reference to how to have a healthier diet and a better lifestyle!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very fine cookbook 19 juin 2013
Par Lana | My Happy Dessert blog - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I tried at least half of the recipes from this book: besides desserts (for my cooking blog), they were pasta & stews, pizza & grills, wraps & sushi - and all of them were really delicious! I highly recommend this book to everyone who is open for exploring new cuisines and ingredients. You will feel good while making the recipes as they all are easy to prepare, don't require many ingredients and the final outcome tastes great! This is a very fine book for every day cooking.

Also, the first part of the book is really interesting because it provides some background information and research behind the Mediterrasian (Mediterranean + Asian) lifestyle. It may be a motivational reading for those who are looking for simple ways to live well through food choices and lifestyle.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More than a diet book 10 avril 2010
Par M. Cohen - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I've read more diet books than I care to mention and have been following a Mediterranean style diet for several years. There are several things about this book that I think are very good. First, it doesn't just focus on food. It focuses on an entire lifestyle. One that is more relaxed, where one takes time to enjoy the simple things, and includes natural activity as part of regular life-not outrageous gym workouts that most people don't have the time or energy to commit to. This is much more consistent with the lifestyle of the mediterranean-they live longer, not just because they eat healthier food, but because their entire approach to life is healthier. Their meal plans not only include a menu but a reminder to be physically active every day and to take time to for some calm, contemplative time as well.

As for the recipes, I love them. I am particularly fond of curries and there are several different style curry recipes included but also great stir fries, pasta recipes, risottos, among others. A lot of the recipes are what I call "one dish wonders" which I also appreciate as a busy professional trying to make healthy meals. Nice to make one dish that has it all instead of having to prepare multiple dishes for one meal. It also includes a step-by-step instruction on how to roll your own sushi or make your own vietnamese style spring rolls. The only criticism I would have is that they don't include the nutritional information and when I have run some the recipes through some of my nutritional software, they have been unacceptably high. However, if you split the recipes into 6 or 8 servings instead of the typical 4, they will be well within the acceptable calorie range and this is usually not a problem because they make a lot of food.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Almost unbelievably good so far 11 novembre 2012
Par Fishfry - Publié sur

My wife and I rate all the recipes we get from cookbooks on a scale from poor to excellent. It's pretty tough to get an excellent from both of us and no other cookbook we've used has produced more than 3 recipes rated excellent. We've only made 3 recipes from this book (have it less than a week) and we both consider all three to be excellent. So, assuming we haven't just been lucky and somehow found the 3 best recipes to start with, and also assuming there isn't a huge dropoff in quality from here, this will likely end up being the best cookbook we own (we have dozens).

We did have to make a minor investment and stock up on some Asian spices and sauces we didn't have in our pantry, but we've been well rewarded with out-of-the-ordinary, absolutely-delicious meals. Don't be deterred if you too have to add some stuff -- it's well worth it. Plus, once you have the spices and sauces, the recipes are fairly simple and easy to make.

So, the bottom line is you get mouth-watering, healthy meals that are, for the most part, quick-and-easy. Not sure how a cookbook can get much better than that.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Yummy! 21 juin 2012
Par RWahl - Publié sur

As an America's Test Kitchen junkie, I've become a bit spoiled when it comes to good food. I have also been disappointed with many cookbooks because, unlike The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook 3rd Edition: Cookware Rating Edition, other cookbooks rarely offer the ability to try any recipe in them and have it turn out tasty. This cookbook is peasingly an exception to that problem! I have so far tried 4 recipes from this cookbook, and all of them have been full of flavor and simply delicious. The Thai-Spiced Sweet Potato Soup pleased even my meat-and-potatoes husband. The Dal (Red Lentils) with Carrot and Cauliflower went well with the soup, though the family all agreed it wasn't quite as good as the soup. The Grilled Tuscan Chicken with Asparagus and Red Pepper offered the simplest and best marinade I've had on chicken. The Lemony Tuna, Olive and Vegetable Pasta was delicious both hot and cold, served as a pasta salad the next day. All of these recipes sound appetizing, and I can't wait to dive into more: there are spring rolls, curries and pizzas to try! The only thing that is disappointing is that the first half of the cookbook is the rationale for the diet, rather than more yummy recipes. However, even the rationale is interesting, well-written, and useful. Overall, I am very pleased with this cookbook.
