Eat Like A King, Look Like A Star
(NAPSA) - Chefs can really pack on the pounds, what with all the 'sampling' of their own cooking. But one famous chef at least is living proof that-not only can you get back in shape-but you can do so while eating fabulously.
'I don't just cook for a living, I eat for a living, too,' says chef Nick Stellino, host of PBS' 'Nick Stellino's Family Kitchen' and author of the 'Family Kitchen' series of cookbooks. 'So cutting delicious meals out of my diet was out of the question.'
Instead, Stellino shed 60 pounds by sticking to healthy and delicious Mediterranean cuisine-complete with olives and fruity vinegars, as well as whole vegetables, fruits, lean meats, fish and legumes.
A Taste Of Health
Such ingredients are evocative of Stellino's native Sicily and can easily be added to any family's diet. 'It's one of the world's oldest and healthiest menus,' he notes.
He suggests this recipe for Sicilian Salad with Grilled Shrimp, a mouthwatering dish that makes the perfect warm-weather meal.
