Author Bio:

Julia Garcia, creator of the popular Mediterranean recipes, is a nutritional enthusiast. Born and raised in a Spanish family, she grew up in the vibrant and exotic Mediterranean region, spending most of her time in and around the kitchen preparing traditional and authentic foods to enjoy with friends and family.

For most people living in the Mediterranean region it appears to come natural to live a healthy lifestyle, eating the right foods, loving life and maintaining a perfect body weight. This however, can be a quite difficult task for people who grew up in other regions. How can all of the above be combined with a busy work schedule? What if we don’t have the same authentic foods and ingredients? How do I change my eating habits?

As Julia became older and started to travel the world for her nutritional studying, she kept hearing the same questions over and over again. There seemed to be a lot of confusion, and the Mediterranean lifestyle was considered a beautiful fairytale. Knowing that EVERYONE can achieve this lifestyle, Julia began to note down the recipes of the food she and her family were consuming every single day for the past years, and still counting today. She also asked the help of her grandmother for those special (secret) traditional recipes.

From that moment on, she is determined to share and help to educate people who are struggling with weight problems, health, and stressful lives. How come nobody in the Mediterranean region is ever stressed about anything?

Her cookbooks are written and designed for people that are struggling to achieve their weight goals, eating the right nutrients, and living a healthy lifestyle.

You will not only get to taste her family recipes, but traditional food throughout the entire Mediterranean region. As you go through her cookbooks, you will find out that there is a lot more to discover. You will be introduced to traditional recipes and cultures from countries such as Croatia, Greece, Italy, Turkey, Tunisia, and of course Spain.

Let’s start living healthier, more passionate and spend more time with family and friends!

My Review:

The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook: Easy & Healthy Mediterranean Pressure Cooker Recipes - Quick, Delicious, and Time-Saving Recipes for Electric Pressure Cookers (incl. Detox Smoothies) by Julia Garcia
Always fun to find new things to put into our pressure cooker that are healthy.
Book starts in with the advantages of electric pressure cooking and how to clean it naturally.
Recipe chapters include: soups, vegetarian, fish and seafood, poultry, meat, desserts, detox smoothies and meal plan with shopping list.
Also conversion tables and abbreviations explained.   We are eating more healthier these days since my husband's heart attack and find the pressure cooker is so much easier and faster to use for a most healthy option of eating.
What we look for in recipes is fat content-have to know the good and bad parts, sodium and sometimes sugar. We also like to see the picture and to find the ingredients are fresh and healthy ones-not pre packaged salty items.
Very useful information in the first chapters of the book about nutrition and don't give up on recipes are crucial. Love very high quality color photos throughout the book, not just for the recipes. Love the ideas of cleaning the inner pot-will give them a try!
Each recipe comes with a color photo and a bit about the dish and what allergies the dish is made for: gluten free, soy free, nut free, etc.
Tells you how long to prepare the dish and cooking time, servings also.
Useful tips along the way.
List of ingredients but feel free to substitute for your dietary needs, especially using low sodium varieties.
Directions are given along with nutritional information that includes calories, proteins, carbs, dietary fibers, sugars, fat and sat. fats, no sodium levels are noted.
Like the suggestions on how to make the dish a bit different.
Chocolate cake will be one to try when we have company as fat content is a bit high for us to eat the cake on our own-we could have a sliver. Ground beef omelet sounds really good and quick to make.
Smoothie recipes do not use the pressure cooker but go along with a high nutrient based cookbook in a liquid form.
Found quite a few recipes I will try in the next few weeks. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
I received this book from the author and this is my honest review
