Présentation de l'éditeur
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!

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.
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.
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.
