Chef Mareya Ibrahim brings her culinary and nutrition backgrounds together in the brand new book: Eat Like You Give A Fork: The Real Dish on Eating to Thrive, released this month by St. Martin’s Griffin. Ibrahim previously served as a signature chef on the million-copy seller The Daniel Plan before releasing her own book.
With a cheeky and conversational approach, Ibrahim delivers countless tips and tricks to help people who don’t know where to start to clean up their eating habits. User-friendly recipes based on her eight essential strategies are easy to prepare and support her eight core strategies: Reset Your Taste Buds, Stock Your Real Kitchen, Get Up on Greens, Take a Vegan Fast Break, Go Gluten-Free Super Grains, Fill in with Good Fat, Become Real Dense, and Live the 90/10 Rule.
“You don’t have to cut out whole food groups like paleo, keto and whole 30 diets. People have gotten so focused on what to take out versus what to eat, but there are certain nutrients essential to survival. Each strategy in the book is supported with nutritionally-balanced recipes that already have the 8 essential amino acids adults need every day to thrive baked in,” according to Ibrahim. “I start by helping you retrain your taste buds to crave the foods that boost metabolism, build muscle mass and yes, lose weight – although vibrant health is the real goal.” Dishes include:
- You Glow Smoothie
- Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai
- Grilled Bison Kofta Burgers
- Overstuffed Sweet Potatoes with Chipotle Lime Yogurt
- Kaniwa and Fresh Herb Tabbouli
- Marbled Tahini Fudge Bars
- The Best Kinda’ Date Balls
“Ibrahim’s thoughtful recipes and sense of humor (‘Greens are your new friends with bennies’) keep this book entertaining and accessible.”
“This is a book you can use in your healing journey without any boring meals.”
—Daniel Amen, MD, co-author of The Daniel Plan
