Cookbook Club is back in 2017 and ready for month #4. I’m pumped. Guys…get ready for The Dude Diet.
Here’s the deal if you’re new to cookbook club… each month I announce the cookbook of the month and then we can buy it, borrow it, check it out from the library and cook! Cook by yourself, invite your friends over, host your own cookbook club with the assigned book, whatever floats your boat. The idea is for us all to cook recipes from the same book in the same month. Pick one or two or three recipes. Whatever you can manage! THEN… for one of my Facebook Live posts (every Wednesday at 11am PST) we’ll cook a recipe from the cookbook together and you guys can tune in, share your own pics from the recipes you’ve made, share your friends photos, you name it!!
We can talk in real time about the cookbooks, what we loved about certain recipes, what we didn’t love, what worked, what didn’t…. the whole nine yards. And then we’ll do it all again the next month. How fun is this? We get to virtually eat our way through a different cookbook every single month. I’m so jazzed about this idea and I hope you will be too. So let’s get round 3 going!
I’m so excited for this month because it’s my kinda diet book… The Dude Diet: Clean(ish) Food for People Who Like to Eat Dirty. I’m in to win it. Enough said. Sold. Into it. Meet your new bff Serena Wolf. I haven’t met her in real life but I’m 100% confident we’d totally be friends. The Dude Diet is everything I’ve ever wanted in a cookbook and it was photographed by my bff Matt Armendariz.
Serena is the food blogger behind Domesticate-Me.com and she’s pretty damn brilliant! As someone who’s dude once only ate frozen pizza (I’m looking at you husband), I’m so into her way of thinking and cooking! As a labor of love, Serena began creating healthier versions of her boyfriend’s (now fiancé!) 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 drool-worthy 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. I mean, how can you go wrong with Philly Cheesesteaks, Fiery Pork and Pineapple Skewers, Vegetable Fajita Salad with Chipotle Vinaigrette, Sesame Orange Chicken, Taco Bell Beef Tacos, Smarter Sausage Pizza… I mean the list just keeps going!
Here’s the link to the book on Amazon (The Dude Diet) if you want to have it delivered or go grab it from your local bookstore or library! I’m starting to cook my way through this week!! Feel free to leave any comments here if you have questions. On Wednesday January 25th at 11am PST let’s all plan on tuning into Facebook live and discuss!
PS…. when you make something from the book, if you post it on insta use the hashtag #WGCcookbookclub so we can see!!
I am so excited you are making one of my recipes and I would love to see how it turns out. Make sure to share it on instagram and tag me @whatsgabycookin so I can see your masterpiece!
