Author “Your are what you cook – Mediterranean & South Asian”
“You Are What You Cook, by Dr Antigone Kouris, is a Wellness Cookbook containing 80 easy to prepare healthy recipes for the family using Mediterranean and South Asian flavours. Many of the recipes have been adapted from traditional Greek recipes and made healthier by reducing the calories, fat, carbs and many are naturally gluten free. Therefore most recipes are suitable for weight control and for people with diabetes, high cholesterol and coeliac disease. Recipes have been developed by Dr Kouris using knowledge gained from her Greek mother and mother-in-law, her research on the Mediterranean diet and the latest nutrition research, especially on preferred cooking methods (more stews less grills) and use of herbs and spices (especially oregano and turmeric for their anti-inflammatory properties). The book includes a simple guide for a preferred weekly menu and a ‘plate’ guide for food portions. Click here to purchase a copy.
