The Love Diet: Eat it Up, Take It Off, Get It On - Cookbook Review
By Juan-Carlos Cruz and Amy Reiley
(Life of Reily, 2010)
In The Love Diet: Eat It Up, Take It Off, Get It On, The Food Network’s "Calorie Commando" Juan-Carlos Cruz and aphrodisiacs expert Amy Reiley have created a savory collection of recipes for a healthier, sexier, and happier you—in and outside the bedroom.
The Love Diet supplies foodies with a "road map to a delicious, balanced life packed with ingredients beneficial to sexual health." The little book is filled from beginning to end with sensory-awakening foods for a healthy life and revived sexual appetite, and recipes are divided into chapters based on their lustful effects. We get scrumptious chocolate-kissed white bean chili in the chapter seeking to "Boost Your Libido" and ambrosial whole grain French toast with warm blueberry sauce in the "Romantic Weekends" section.
Also included are "Little Blue Pill Foods" like chili, ginger and coffee to "reignite your flame," a chapter dedicated to lower calorie versions of classic dishes and one on snacks and sides to help your mind, body, and libido soar to blissful heights.
The Love Diet’s collection of mouth-watering recipes is sure to light your "fire" in other rooms of the house aside from the kitchen. So grab an apron and get ready to "cook yourself sexy."
