Description

Have you meticulously counted calories and obsessed over what you eat and how you move, only to feel exhausted, unfulfilled, and overweight? The Wellness Lifestyle: A Chef's Recipe for Real Life is the easy-to-follow and life-changing book for those who love food and want a healthier and more fulfilling life. Renowned chef Daniel Orr (Chef D) teams up with wellness coach Kelly Baute (Dr. K) to identify and navigate the eight dimensions of wellness: nutritional, physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, occupational, and environmental. The result is a fulfilling recipe for everyone interested in improving their overall health and shedding pounds while still enjoying life.

The path to total wellness is a lifelong journey of self-exploration and adaptation. Chef D and Dr. K explain how to implement and maintain effective behavior changes, including better ways to move, like yoga; better ways to think, like through meditation; and better ways to eat, with easy recipes for whole, healthful foods. From Muscle Mud Breakfast Bars to Cauliflower "Popcorn," Happy Mouth Quinoa Salad to Tuscan Flatiron Steak with Garlic, Rosemary, and Lemon, The Wellness Lifestyle is packed with delicious and fun recipes that combine the healthy nutrients your body needs with the great flavors you crave. Featuring the secrets to good food and an even better life, The Wellness Lifestyle is essential for every kitchen.
