Fit and Sexy for Life
Kathy and I worked together on the Body-for-LIFE program in NYC a few years back. She was there speaking about the fitness regime of the contestants and I was there talking about healthy recipes and meal planning. She’s well known in her field as one of the best authorities on health and fitness and has gathered quite the list of celebrity clientele.
When you read the title of this book, “Fit and Sexy for Life: The hormone free plan for staying slim, strong and fabulous in your 40’s, 50’s, and beyond” of course you’d assume I’d be the authority on this subject! But she asked me for some recipes anyway and I found myself more than willing to oblige.
The recipes featured (found in pages 177-195) include:
Ginger lime shrimp salad
Niscoise salad w/ seared ahi tuna
Grilled chicken & onion pizza
Homemade turkey burger w/ asian slaw
Cajun salmon salad w/ arugula mixed greens
Although Kathy’s book deals with health and fitness related issues aimed primarily at menopausal women, diet is as important. I don’t use the word ‘diet’ in terms of losing weight but as a lifestyle centered around eating healthy nutritious meals that fuel the body. Kathy and I agreed on this fundamental issue and that’s ultimately how I ended up contributing to her book. The end result is great and the recipes are accessible to everyone.
