Overview

Over thirty years ago, singer Olivia Newton-John danced and sang her way through Grease, the most successful movie musical of all time. With a career spanning more than four decades with over 100 million albums sold, Olivia’s successes include four Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award, countless music awards, ten Number One hits, and over fifteen top ten singles, as well as numerous television and film roles.
A breast cancer “thriver” for twenty years, she is still the picture of health and well-being. If you were wondering how she’s managed to look so good through all these years, wonder no more.
The secret of Olivia’s success is no secret at all. She exercises daily and eats a simple diet based mostly on salads, vegetables, fish, chicken, and some whole grains. She firmly believes that what we eat is imperative to staying healthy and well-balanced and she shares this philosophy in her first cookbook, Livwise.
Recipes in Livwise have been assembled using Olivia’s own experience in the kitchen and with the help of nutritionists, friends, and chefs from Gaia, her Australian health retreat and spa. The resulting meals are imaginative, tasty, and very healthy, from delicious salads and snacks to hearty main dishes and guilt-free desserts. Recipes include: poached eggs with cilantro pesto for breakfast, chickpea patties and a carrot salad with papaya and orange dressing for lunch, and her family favorite, lemon chicken for dinner. The common thread throughout is the food philosophy behind them and the importance of eating a healthy diet, along with regular exercise, to help your body find its own natural balance.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Olivia Newton-John first entered public consciousness more than forty years ago and she still seems to remain as vibrant as ever. This self-described "breast cancer thriver" credits her energy and appearances to her regimen of daily exercise and a well-planned diet of mostly vegetables, fish, and whole grains. Her Livwise, her first book, she draws on her experience and nutritionists and chefs from her Australian health retreat to showcase healthful meals designed to tempt your taste buds, such as Trout with Cauliflower Puree and Lime Balsamic Dressing.

    Delicious, easy and healhy recipes

    I came to this beautiful cookbook as an Olivia fan, but would have happily purchased it for the recipes alone. They combine simple ingredients in ways that give each dish (shown in large color photographs) great taste. And it's all healthy! Another winner for the talented Olivia, and for my family.

    very fresh

    I love Olivia and fresh foods so this is a great cookbook.
    Some of the recipes use items( tofu) that I personally don't eat
    but you could easily substitute chicken if you wanted.
