Praise For The Dude Diet Dinnertime: 125 Clean(ish) Recipes for Weeknight Winners and Fancypants Dinners…
“As a bonafide Dude, who has ‘dieted’ in some form his entire life, I can wholeheartedly say that The Dude Diet Dinnertime is much more than a diet cookbook. It’s a necessary resource for those who enjoy a healthy lifestyle but still crave a ton of flavor and excitement in their daily meals. This book proves that a healthy & balanced dinner is not only delicious but SUSTAINABLE!” — Jeff Mauro, host of Food Network’s “Sandwich King” and co-host of “The Kitchen”
“The Dude Diet Dinnertime is basically my dream book: flavor-bomb comfort food that’s tweaked to not make you feel like crap. These are the types of recipes that will help build relationships in the kitchen (try to keep your dude away when you’re making Sour Cream & Onion Roasted Cauliflower)—and they’ll eliminate the notion that healthy equals boring. With wit and genius kitchen chops, Serena has created a book that perfectly answers the age-old question: ‘what’s for dinner?’” — Liz Moody, host of the “Healthier Together” podcast and author of Healthier Together
“It’s hard to find a go-to cookbook, especially one that appeals to our family of very picky eaters, but this is it! Easy, healthy, and great tasting recipes that both parents and kids love.” — Peter Budaj (Dad and former NHL star) and Taylor Budaj (Mom and yoga instructor
“If you think that healthy food has to be ‘boring or gross,’ I urge you to cook from Serena Wolf’s Dude Diet Dinnertime. The recipes are delicious, good for you, and dude-approved (Serena’s husband Logan was the prime tester). Wolf’s makeover of deeply dude dishes like burgers and wings and patty melts is great for anyone who wants to eat well!” — Dana Cowin, former editor-in-chief of Food & Wine magazine and host of “Speaking Broadly” podcast
