Overview


With two New York Times best sellers and continued star-status on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice has lots more to share with her fans. In this latest book, Teresa provides a detailed program for how she keeps her voluptuous, sexy figure after four kids (and as she approaches 40). The more than 60 recipes in Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit emphasize "skinny": including lessons on playing up veggies and grilled meats, cooking low-calorie Italian favorites, and rules for the five things you MUST cut out (and what to replace them with).

But Teresa isn't about deprivation. She loves food— especially pasta and Tiramisu! Teresa proves that you CAN have your skinny jeans and spaghetti too. She tells you exactly how to live La Bella Vita- the "skinny" way.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Giudice's peppy personality comes through as she celebrates her Italian heritage with a wealth of easy recipes. Beginning with a "Kitchen Catechism" that focuses on all dishes being prepped in under 30 minutes and with less than 10 ingredients, Giudice assures readers, "I'm never going to be the girl to give you recipes for tofu and soy milk meatballs. Non mi va; that's just not me." Nevertheless, Giudice is focused on staying fit and fed. Common sense advice (e.g., colorful food is good for you; extra virgin olive oil is the oil of choice) is juxtaposed with asides on Italian pronunciation, insider info on rosemary and Balsamic vinegar, and a rundown of nutritional stats for all the recipes. Included here are comfort food staples, such as a calamari and potato cacciuco, as well as low-fat classics ("Skinny Spaghetti Bolognese"), "romantic" recipes ("Sexy Chickpea Chard Stew"), and "Guilt-Free Desserts" (including a berry-ricotta tiramisu). Complete with a "Motivating Music" playlist and tips for storing fresh herbs, Giudice provides plenty of inspiration and information to pursue her favorite F-words: great food, staying fit, and—of course—being fabulous.
