OAKLAND, CA – January 20, 2015) – Health and fitness expert Gloria Kamil has released her new cookbook Gloria’s One Dish Recipes, and is taking eating healthy to a new level. The book is a must have for those who want to eat healthy, gain control over their time, waistline and the health of themselves and their families. With more than 40 simple to follow healthy and soulful recipes, Gloria’s One Dish Recipes reveals a glimpse into the super healthy guru’s eating philosophies.
Gloria’s Breakfast Sausage Collard Wrap, Gloria’s Chicken & Carrot Sandwich Salad, Gloria’s Rosemary Lemon Honey Trout and Gloria’s Quinoa Grape Shrimp Salad are just a few of her super healthy and bursting with flavor recipes. What’s unique about Gloria’s One Dish Recipes is that she introduces readers to several over-looked and under-used super greens, beans and seasonings. Purple Orach leaves and purple potatoes, romanesco, Kohlrabi, Stinging Nettles, Okra, Wheat Berry, Mung and Aduki Beans, Amaranth, Black Quinoa. If you thought that you were doing something good by eating kale, the current “it” greens, think again and please, broaden your palate. Gloria’s One Dish Recipes includes delectable recipes for vegans and vegetarians as well as lovers of soul food, sea food and meat. Healthy soups, stews, sandwiches, salads and a few unheard of innovative combinations like Gloria’s Creamy Cauliflower Fruit Salad are just a few surprises in Kamil’s cookbook.
Gloria Kamil’s One Dish Recipes provides a list of essential kitchen tools, healthy seasonings to use and techniques including skinning and deboning a whole chicken to save money and calories. Also included is Kamil’s simple, and oh so delicious signature self-dressing Staple Salad.
In writing Gloria’s One Dish Recipes, Kamil drew on her 40 years of experience as a health and fitness expert. She refers to herself as a “transformationist” because transforming the bodies, minds and health of others is what she does. For the past 16 years, she has worked exclusively as a holistic, whole food nutrition professional, fitness expert and consultant and lifestyle-change coach. Kamil explains that to lose (weight) is to misplace; to release is to let go and her method is highly effective because it lies in not just releasing weight but in creating an overall lifestyle change that endures throughout a person’s life.
More than just a cookbook, Gloria’s One Dish Recipes is a testament to Kamil’s conviction that healthy eating doesn’t have to be bland. “Eating a balanced and healthy meal is a challenge for most people today. Many of us are bombarded with long commutes, office hours, and activities with our children. This leaves little or no time in the kitchen. Therefore, we opt out of cooking meals at home and rely on low- and high-end fast-food restaurants. Although that has closed the time gap it has widened the waistline and compromised the overall health of the body,” Kamil states.
A certified personal fitness trainer, Kamil holds certifications from the American Council on Exercise (ACE), the world’s largest non-profit fitness certifying organization and the Pilates Institute of America. In 2009 Kamil released “Body Basic Weight Training Workout,” a successful exercise DVD that is still being sold at Wal-Mart and on Amazon.com.
