The story of middle eastern food is really the story of its people. Enjoy clean vacations of traditional recipes that were once closely guarded family secrets were shared and passed between different groups in an effort to ensure that they were not lost forever.
This book features authentic and delicious easy-to-make recipes created by Dr. Charo to help you eat well, nourish your body and keep your tummy flat.
Find diverse dishes, from light, tempting mezzes and salads, to hearty main courses, grilled meats, sumptuous sweets, and refreshing drinks.
Recipes range from the familiar to fresh discoveries, and from meat, fish, and poultry dishes to a wealth of vegetable-based, dairy-free, and gluten-free options.
I personally created every recipe in this book recipes to help you and your family enjoy festive foods that is delicious and healthy at the same time. You have different meals for every day, some are very quick recipe and some take longer for the weekend or for when you have a feast planned. Every meal comes with a refreshing beverage, a filling nutritious snack for Iftar, and a healthy but delicious dinner.
All the recipes correspond to the requirements of clean healthy eating, following the advice on how to prepare your body for fasting as well as how and what to eat during Ramadan put together in the beginning of the book.
Unfortunately, contrary to the spirit of this month, it has become a norm to be more greedy and over-indulgent towards food. Lavish and extended Iftar dinner parties and deep fried, heavy and calorie loaded food buffets at restaurants became the reason for diverse health problems making the fasting experience more difficult and less enjoyable.
But don't worry, it is not a diet book. There are plenty of hearty and zesty dishes that will satisfy both the carnivore and the gourmet in you. Put together in a menu, they create a perfect nutrition plan for your body and your taste buds during the holy month of Ramadan.
Book by Dr. Chantale Charo
Discover the easy, effective, no dieting, delicious and science based cleanse created by Dr. Charo! This 7-day Gut Reset detox program allows you to eat whole, nutrient-rich foods—and feel satisfied and energized while dropping pounds and getting rid of digestive issues such as bloating!
As a clinician and medical researcher, Dr. Charo worked with hundreds of clients ranging from busy moms, millennials who traveled constantly, students and busy CEOs who barely slept, skipped meals, and relied on quick fixes and restrictive diets to lose weight and get a flat tummy, all of which takes a toll on the physical and emotional health and gives temporary results, if any. After numerous years of researching and studying the human body and it’s response to Inflammation, Dr. Charo started focusing on integrative nutrition and Ayurvedic medicine—and learned that the key to a flat tummy is a balanced gut, which leads to weight loss, radiant skin, and overall well-being is not starving yourself but eating. That’s right: eating! Nourish your body instead of punishing it with torturous diets. Dr. Charo created her detox plan based on the knowledge that in the right combinations, real whole foods—grains, vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices—can reset the gut, balance digestion, burn body fat, flush out toxins, reduce bloating, banish fatigue, and clear up the skin.
