Layne Lieberman’s advice is a sterling example of how to battle the stereotypical ‘American Diet’.  She praises quality ingredients while denouncing the notion of ‘more is better’ and large portions.  She offers a catalog of ideas and methods to retrain your brain and body, allowing yourself to break free from the ‘eat large’ mindset.   Many facets of Layne’s argument for dietary change were completely unknown to me.  Reading, I picked up a few ideas about how cultural differences could effect eating habits.  One example being, the fact that europeans spend less time snacking, and more time socializing.  This idea resonated with me and opened my eyes to the dangers lurking behind the comfortable-sounding habit of “casual snacking.” Beyond the Mediterranean Diet was more than a cook book, it was an exploration of cultural and culinary differences. As a health conscience individual,  I recommend this book as a trustworthy guide to healthier living.

Growing up, my mother constantly argued against the use of antibiotics and other “additives” in food.  She told me that food had always tasted better when she was young, growing up on a farm. It was always her opinion that the downward slide in quality was attributed to the prominent use of food additives.  So, at an early age, I became skeptical of any foods with additives—what Layne refers to as “ingredients you can’t pronounce”—and learned to avoid them like the plague.  The advice provided by Lieberman falls in accordance with my that given to me by my own mother.  The difference is, Layne supports her arguments with facts and reputable knowledge, while my mother simply pokes me with until fork until she’s convinced I’m listening.   Lieberman’s book ‘Beyond the Mediterranean Diet’ didn’t offer advice I couldn’t find somewhere else—it just offered it in the clearest, most supportive way.  And let’s not forget that it’s a cook book! It’s full of knowledge, history, and amazing recipes! I would certainly recommend this book to any who are seeking a healthier, happier diet.

 A wonderful, sensible book filled with delicious recipes and artful photographs - a must read! Layne Lieberman takes the reader beyond the Mediterranean Diet and examines the lifestyle and dietary choices of the three european countries with the longest longevity rates. This approach easily applies to a fast paced lifestyle, making it easier to stick with a practical diet and make healthful choices. Her writing is fluid, engaging, and eye-opening, all accompanied by the most scrumptious recipes and beautiful photographs. The recipes are easy to prepare, quick and delicious. I highly recommend the turkey meatballs. They were a crowd pleaser in my household!
