THE BENEFITS OF JUICING

The typical Western diet is filled with food created with chemicals and other unnatural ingredients. Due to the refinement process that most processed foods go through, our food has lost the majority of its vitamins and nutrients before it touches our plate. Many Westerners feel sick, tired, and are gaining extra weight because of what they eat.

Fruits and vegetables have many of the vital minerals and vitamins our bodies need to operate at its peak ability. Juicing raw fruits and vegetables allow you to easily absorb these essential nutrients into your bloodstream. Many people who decide to start changing their diet and add fresh vegetable juice have reported having more energy, better skin, and other health benefits.

Below are just some of the benefits of including vegetable and fruit juice in your diet:

You can consume a larger amount of food in one concentrated drink than in its raw form.
Your body can quickly absorb the nutrients in your juice and use it for energy.
Green plants have antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll and other building blocks that our bodies need.
Juicing can help detox your body from the harmful toxins and chemicals you’ve ingested from unhealthy food.
You may experience healthier skin, hair, and nails.
Juicing can help jump-start your efforts to lose weight.

Overall, juicing can offer many benefits to your health, especially when paired with exercise and other healthy lifestyle habits. The sooner you decide to take control of your diet the sooner you can start to experience the amazing effects of juicing!

How do you see writing a food/cookbook as different from writing other genres of books?
A Food/Cookbook is more intimate because we are sharing recipes that may have been passed down for generations. When people use our books they are most likely creating a meal that they will share with loved ones.

Advice to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a food book or cookbook
Just do it! Don’t over think it.

How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
I decided to self-publish my book.

Author Bio:

THE ITALIAN COOKBOOK: 20 Famous Italian Recipes “All Time Favorites Best of the Best” by Mario Mazzo

THEITALIANCOOKBOOK20FamousItalianRecipes

What inspired you to write your book?
To find a cookbook with 20 amazing recipes which are all popular ones, is very hard to find. I wanted to create an easy to download e-Book for a fair price. This way someone does not need to download a 500 recipe cookbook in order to get about 20 or 30 good recipes. This saves everyone time and money. But most of all I selected these recipes because they are all 4 to 5 star recipes and have been verified to be such, by many reviews. So for me it was a win, win, win. I hope you’ll feel the same if you try some of these recipes. I just want to produce the best cookbook out there with famous recipes that everyone wanted in their collection.

About your Book:
Are you looking for Italian Classics? Then this book is for you! It’s packed with the most popular recipes in a small package, and a small download file. Unfortunately, lots of cookbooks today offer so many recipes, but not enough good ones. This cookbook’s the exact opposite. Only 20 recipes, but all amazing! Ones you’d actually want to make. The recipes in here are so tasty that even an Italian Nonna would approve of them. See the table of contents of recipes for yourself, and you can be the judge. This book is first in a series called Best of the Best Recipes focusing on delicious, famous international food and desserts. The recipes in THE ITALIAN COOKBOOK were carefully chosen. There’s no fluff. These recipes have been judged, and rated by lots of reviews to be the most delicious, earning them a quality control stamp of approval. All readers can benefit by the easy to follow directions.

Buon Appetito!

Sample Recipe or Food Advice
Okay I’ll give some food advice.
Don’t burn your garlic. If flavoring oil or butter first with garlic when using a frying pan or pot is fine if you only let the garlic cook by itself for about 5 to 10 seconds on a light sizzle. This short amount of time will help avoid the garlic from getting burned. You can then add other ingredients immediately after placing the garlic in the hot oil, so make sure that you have them ready to throw into the pan. Adding the next ingredient quickly like onions for example, will save your meal usually. Some like to add onions and garlic at the same time which will be even better as a protective step to keep the garlic from burning. You definitely don’t want the bitter flavor of burnt garlic in your food. If not using onions after the garlic anything will do the trick of soaking up the heat, like tomato sauce, or any liquid. Just be careful. That’s my advice for the day! An experienced cook knows this, but some out there don’t. So I hope it helps the new chefs out there.

What formats are your books in: eBook

How do you see writing a food/cookbook as different from writing other genres of books?
I think this type of book needs to written in an easy to understand way. So when following the directions the reader never gets confused. If the reader ever doesn’t understand one of the steps to create the recipe, the food may not turn out so good.

Advice to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a food book or cookbook
Take your time. Don’t be in a hurry.
This took much longer than I thought it would.
I kept adding things that I did not plan on in the beginning.

How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
I decided to self publish my book. I like to do things myself the first time and later possibly hire others to do some of the tasks for me like formatting and art design. I’m currently using Amazon to promote it for me.

He believes that traditional does not mean boring, and a good meal is a good meal. While tomato sauce is his favorite, he enjoys other sauces including Alfredo, Asian Brown, Thai Curries and many others.

His cookbook entitled THE ITALIAN COOKBOOK: 20 Famous Italian Recipes is the first book in a series called the “Best of the Best Recipes” which focuses on the most popular favorite Italian recipes. His short cookbooks are great for people that want to download some amazing recipes which received the highest ratings from many reviews for a fantastic price.

More about the Author

Mario’s theory in the kitchen is, “When something isn’t broke don’t fix it, because you may have to eat it one day.”
He often likes to tell the story of how his mother feed him pizza when he was a baby, in liquid form, in his bottle. Claiming that she used a blender to turn it into a soup like consistency in order to feed him before he could eat solid food. He developed a deep love and appreciation for pizza. Although people don’t know if his crazy stories are true or not they enjoy them nonetheless. Mario enjoys sharing his knowledge as well as learning new things. A few years ago he attended an in depth cooking class learning how to make authentic Thai food while in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He quotes, “The class was perfect and the exciting journey the teacher took us on, to the Thai outdoor food market. He showed us where to gather the fresh, secret ingredients for the many delicious meals that we made. And wow, were they good!”
Mario is currently creating new cookbooks to best recipes with the world. He belongs to a couple popular social media groups, just look him up.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always wanted to create and publish my own recipe book. When I was in my 20’s I started designing and photographing my recipe creations. In my 30’s (due to health reasons) I found relief from symptoms by eliminating gluten from my diet. Around this same time I was hearing about a lot of other people suffering from similar symptoms and more and more people discovering they had celiac disease. This encouraged me to continue developing and photographing my GF recipes. And after graduating from my Natural Nutrition program I completed my cookbook series Foods That Work For You: Delectable and Gluten Free and sent them off to the printers.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
From a young age I loved creating recipes and that developed into wanting to publish my own cookbook. I started developing recipes and photographing them in my 20’s. When I was in my 30’s I developed some health issues and found avoiding certain foods specifically ones containing gluten, gave me relief from most of my symptoms. At this time I was also hearing more and more about other people with the same issues. That directed me and spurred me on to finish developing my gluten-free cookbooks.

Poutine Cuisine: The Comfort Food Taking the World By Storm by Suzella Smith

poutine_cover

What inspired you to write your book?
As I describe in my introduction, although I am not a native of Canada, I lived there for a year and fell in love — with a guy as well as poutine! In fact, it was the guy who introduced me to this wonderful Canadian dish, and then joined me as I explored the many ways it can be made.

About your Book:
Gooey, cheesy, and dripping with gravy: That’s poutine, the French fries-based guilty pleasure that escaped its Canadian homeland to become a favorite snack and party food of people everywhere. This book takes poutine in some amazing new directions while staying true to its basic simplicity and ease-of-making.

Recipes range from the traditional, like you would find in diners and restaurants across Canada, to exotic new versions for poutine fanatics who like to push boundaries (think Mexican, Indian, or down-home southern!). For the health minded there are recipes for substituting sweet potatoes or vegetables for regular French fries, and recipes for delicious vegetarian gravy.

Along with the recipes, the book provides sources for the “squeaky” cheese that is a signature of the most authentic poutine, while showing how the dish can be just as satisfying using more readily available cheese varieties from the supermarket.

If you’ve never tried poutine, you’re in for a treat. If you’re already hooked, this book will fire your imagination with the creative possibilities of this deceptively simple gift from the land of the maple leaf.

Cuisine Style or Food Genre
Snack food; guilty pleasures

Sample Recipe or Food Advice
Summery Mexican Poutine

The avocado and other fresh ingredients in this recipe make me think of summer. The tomatillos and jalapeño pepper make me think Mexican. I’m thinking this would be another great one for a patio party when the weather turns warm. Because the salsa takes a bit of work, let’s save some time by using frozen French fries, shall we?

Preparation + cooking time
45 to 55 minutes

Ingredients
Frozen French fries
5 to 7 tomatillos
1 ripe avocado
Red or yellow onion
1 lime
2 cloves garlic
1 small jalapeño pepper
¼ cup fresh chopped cilantro
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese

Instructions

Prepare frozen French fries according to package directions, and set aside.

Heat oven to 400 degrees F (235 C)

Remove husks from the tomatillos. The de-husked tomatillos will be sticky, so rinse them well under running water. Cut tomatillos in half and place them on a roasting pan. Roast for 15 to 25 minutes, and remove pan from oven.

Peel avocado and remove pit. Cut avocado in half. Set one half aside.

Split jalapeño pepper lengthwise with a knife and carefully remove all seeds.

Chop enough onion to make ½ cup’s worth. Set aside ¼ cup of the chopped onion.

Place in a blender: Tomatillos, avocado half, ¼ cup chopped onion, juice of 1 lime, garlic, jalapeño pepper, cilantro,
salt, black pepper. Blend for 30 seconds on high, or until smooth.

Place the cooked French fries in a glass baking pan. Sprinkle Mexican cheese over them. Place the pan in a 400-degree F (235 C) oven for 5 or 6 minutes to melt the cheese.

Remove fries from oven. Cover with the remaining ¼ cup chopped onion. Cut the remaining avocado half into small chunks and scatter them over the fries and onion. Pour the contents of the blender over everything. It is best to serve this dish right away!

What formats are your books in: eBook

How do you see writing a food/cookbook as different from writing other genres of books?
It’s important to personally test as many recipes as possible. This part can’t be faked! Also, with all of the recipes available on-line to people, a cookbook must have something extra to give value to its readers: recommendations for sources of hard-to-find ingredients, for example (I did this for the special squeaky cheese that is used in the most authentic poutine recipes), or some history or cultural notes about the dishes.

Advice to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a food book or cookbook
Go for it! Just be sure you are really passionate about your subject. This will sustain you through the tedious parts of the process, and will be communicated to your readers. You want them to be as excited as you are about your favorite food or recipes.

How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
As noted, I discovered poutine when I lived in Canada. After returning to my down-South home in the U.S., I started making it for myself and my friends and family. When I looked for recipes, I found many that told how to make the basic dish, but few that offered any real variations. There really aren’t many actual poutine cookbooks out there, either. I saw a need and have tried to fill it.

Author Bio:
I am a native of the Deep South, who loves the down-home food I grew up with as well as the dishes of other regions and countries that I’ve discovered through my travels. Poutine Cuisine is my first cookbook, but I’m planning others. I’ve also published several trivia quiz books.

How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
I first published this years ago through a small publisher called Bookshelf Publishing. Grandma was still alive then and thought it was funny that anyone would be interested in her recipes. Now it is published through Amazon and CreateSpace.

Author Bio:
Since 1976, Mr. Darling has written and published numerous short stories, poems, and magazine articles. He has written one play (included in the book Woman In Black) that has been produced in London, Canada and the USA.
