Parnassus Books welcomes Liz Moody author of Healthier Together in conversation with McKel Hill and Laura Lea Goldberg.
Being healthy is all about nourishing both body and soul, and Liz Moody believes that the best way to accomplish that is with support from a friend, partner, coworker, or family member. Healthier Together: Recipes for Two—Nourish Your Body, Nourish Your Relationships is a new healthy eating bible that shares 100+ gluten-free, dairy-free, easy-to-make recipes with a fun twist: all of the recipes are designed to be cooked, eaten, and enjoyed by two people.
Studies show that setting goals and sticking to them is easier—and more fun!—with a partner to help you stay accountable. Organized by traditionally social meals and shared foods—including brunch, take-out, comfort food, date night, cocktails and bar bites, and sweet treats—Healthier Together offers homemade, health-forward alternatives for all of the foods people love to share.
Alongside flavor-packed recipes such as comforting General Tso’s Cauliflower, indulgent Cornflake “Fried” Chicken with Hot Honey, restorative Actually Delicious Green Detox Soup with Toasted Hemp Gremolata, and decadent Chocolate Tahini Brownie Bites, Liz Moody shares the life-changing philosophy she discovered on her own wellness journey as well as advice and guidance from health experts such as Mark Sisson, Dr. Will Cole, and Dr. Frank Lipman. To jumpstart their healthy eating habits, readers can try the Healthier Together 21-Day Cleanup and reap all the benefits of more energy, better sleep, fewer mood swings, and glowing skin just a little bit quicker.
With flavor-forward recipes that make the most of healing ingredients (did you know, for instance, that garlic needs to rest for twenty minutes after mincing to activate its antiviral, antibacterial compounds?), this unique approach shows home cooks how to share meals that don’t necessitate dietary sacrifice. Not only will this book’s publication light up the healthy eating category, but it will also breathe new life into the newlywed cookbook category.
