The Dude Diet
Clean(ish) Food for People Who Like to Eat DirtyBook - 2016
From chef and creator of the popular food blog Domesticate-Me.com, 125 outrageously delicious yet deceptively healthy recipes for dudes (and the people who love them), accompanied by beautiful full-color photography.
Dudes. So well intentioned when it comes to healthy eating, even as they fail epically in execution--inhaling a "salad" topped with fried chicken fingers or ordering their Italian hero on a whole wheat wrap (that makes it healthy, right?).
There are several issues with men going on diets. First, they seem to be misinformed about basic nutrition. They are also, generally, not excited about eating "health food." You can lead a dude to the salad bar, but you can't make him choose lettuce.
Enter Serena Wolf--chef, food blogger, and caretaker of a dude with some less than ideal eating habits. As a labor of love, Serena began creating healthier versions of her boyfriend's favorite foods and posting them on her blog, where she received an overwhelming response from men and women alike. Now, in The Dude Diet, Serena shares more than 125 droolworthy recipes that prove that meals made with nutrient-dense whole foods can elicit the same excitement and satisfaction associated with pizza or Chinese take-out.
The Dude Diet also demystifies the basics of nutrition, empowering men to make better decisions whether they're eating out or cooking at home. Better still, each recipe is 100% idiot-proof and requires only easily accessible ingredients and tools. With categories like Game Day Eats, On the Grill, Serious Salads, and Take Out Favorites, The Dude Diet will arm dudes and those who love them with the knowledge they need to lead healthier, happier lives--with flattened beer bellies and fewer meat sweats.
The Dude Diet includes 102 full-color photographs.

I've never had a cookbook that has made me laugh so much! Although it has "Dude" in the title this is a great cookbook for anyone who is looking for healthier alternatives on their favourite meals. I highly suggest reading the "Dude Diet Commandments".

SummaryAdd a Summary
Chef and creator of the popular blog Domesticate-Me.com, Serena is the caretaker of a dude - Logan, with some less than ideal eating habits. As a labor of love, Serena began creating healthier versions of her boyfriend’s favorite foods and posting them on her blog, where she received an overwhelming response from men and women alike.
In her book, The Dude Diet, Serena discusses several issues with men going on diets. First, many seem to be misinformed about basic nutrition. They are also, generally, not excited about eating “healthy food”. As Serena explains “You can lead a dude to the salad bar, but you can’t make him choose lettuce”. Arming dudes with the basics of nutrition, Serena is both hilarious and straight to the point with 125 easy to follow recipes (see Idiot Proof Chicken) that will motivate and inspire the dude in your life to eat healthier, yet feeling that he is not missing out on his favourite foods or sacrificing his taste buds, and that healthy does not equal boring.
Readers will also enjoy her Dude Diet Commandments - a must read, her hilarious anecdotes at the start of each recipe, and beautiful food photography. With categories like Badass Breakfasts, Game Day Eats, On the Grill, Serious Salads, Sexy Sides and Take Out Favourites, The Dude Diet is a sure win, that has made even the man in my life laughing aloud at her hilarious candor and excited about making many of the recipes outlined in this book.
