Now Eat This! I was thrilled to get a chance to check out his new book and share it with you. Through the show I fell in love with his Italian mama and his flare for theatrics. But what I really love him for is his service to the community, including supporting the fight to get better food in schools. The rest of the book has recipes that include breakfast, entrees including some fabulous homemade pizza crust that can be made ahead and frozen , beverages, dessert, and snacks. There are so many great recipes and I was thrilled to find that he focuses on real food for the most part, with the exception of using sugar-free aka artificial sweeteners in his beverage section.
This book is an excellent choice for those who wish to improve their lifestyle by eating healhy, low-cal, great tasting foods. Ive tried several of the recipes already and have loved the taste. The brownies are delicious, once you get past the idea of the blackbeans lol! I love this book. And Rocco is a cutie!
