Gordita's Way

ISBN : 1096579413


Book Gordita's Way Description/Summary:

What do Latinos do when we feel insecure? We laugh and make fun of ourselves. This book uses humor and comedic paradoxes to describe my smitten yet complicated relationship with food and fitness. I probably tried every diet out there including Paleo, South Beach, Atkins and Keto. Now I do the Latino Keto diet, I eat Un-Poc-Keto de todo! The book discusses health and wellness from my personal perspective which have been influenced by my family and very Latina upbringing. Fat phobia is real, and Latinos give it to you straight. Hence, I deconstruct the term "gordita" and fully embrace it! After years of battling with food addiction, failed diets, and negative coping mechanisms such as alcohol, I did a 180° and decided enough was enough. For years, I fed into this lie and struggled with my body image all my life. I would wake up everyday thinking that I wasn't good enough. I'm sure you've heard this story many times before, but I am making it my life's work to empower all womyn to unapologetically embrace every aspect of themselves. I am sick of society capitalizing off the insecurities of womyn. This movement and book are revolutionary and my desire is to build something bigger than myself. This book embodies various parts of my Latinx identity and tackles issues such as mental health in the Latinx community, complicated relationships with food, and my ultimate favorite self-care practices such as travel and dance. My mission is to challenge traditional ideas behind the diet & fitness industry and create a dialogue and acceptance around radical body positivity.

Category : Cooking
ISBN : 1579651739


Book Magic in the Kitchen Description/Summary:

Taking inspiration from the surrealists, and adding a twist of twenty-first-century technology and a love of good food, photographer Jan Bartelsman turns his lenses on the United States' star chefs, traveling from coast to coast to photograph, interview, and collect recipes from such culinary luminaries as Julia Child, Thomas Keller, Charlie Trotter, and Daniel Boulud. Bartelsman captures each chef's unique personality in hand-tinted photomontages enhanced by fanciful digitally generated elements to create a gallery that Food Arts magazine calls "fresh and spontaneous." Baby carrots rain down on Jean-Georges Vongerichten as he stands against the Manhattan skyline. Dancer-graceful Suzanne Goin strikes a pose with a Martha Graham-inspired carrot. The chefs' recipes and comments are as lively as their portraits. Ming Tsai spices lobster with garlic and pepper, and serves it with lemongrass fried rice; Lydia Shire's gorgonzola dolce ravioli are paired with roasted summer peaches. This book is truly a delectable dish, the complexity and taste of which readers can savor for years to come.

Still other dishes show the evolution of Mexican food north and south of the border, including Mexican Dreamboat Hotdogs and Cal-Mex Fish Tacos with Creamy Slaw. This food will draw everyone together—a family at the end of a working day, a book club, or a neighborhood potluck.

Book Inherent Vice Description/Summary:

Part noir, part psychedelic romp, all Thomas Pynchon--Private eye Doc Sportello surfaces, occasionally, out of a marijuana haze to watch the end of an era In this lively yarn, Thomas Pynchon, working in an unaccustomed genre that is at once exciting and accessible, provides a classic illustration of the principle that if you can remember the sixties, you weren't there. It's been a while since Doc Sportello has seen his ex- girlfriend. Suddenly she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," except that this one usually leads to trouble. Undeniably one of the most influential writers at work today, Pynchon has penned another unforgettable book.

Author : Brigid Schulte
Publisher : A&C Black
Release : 2014-03-13
Category : Biography & Autobiography
ISBN : 9781408826690


Book Overwhelmed Description/Summary:

In her attempts to juggle work and family life, Brigid Schulte has baked cakes until 2 a.m., frantically (but surreptitiously) sent important emails during school trips and then worked long into the night after her children were in bed. Realising she had become someone who constantly burst in late, trailing shoes and schoolbooks and biscuit crumbs, she began to question, like so many of us, whether it is possible to be anything you want to be, have a family and still have time to breathe. So when Schulte met an eminent sociologist who studies time and he told her she enjoyed thirty hours of leisure each week, she thought her head was going to pop off. What followed was a trip down the rabbit hole of busy-ness, a journey to discover why so many of us ?nd it near-impossible to press the 'pause' button on life and what got us here in the ?rst place. Overwhelmed maps the individual, historical, biological and societal stresses that have ripped working mothers' and fathers' leisure to shreds, and asks how it might be possible for us to put the pieces back together. Seeking insights, answers and inspiration, Schulte explores everything from the wiring of the brain and why workplaces are becoming increasingly demanding, to worldwide differences in family policy, how cultural norms shape our experiences at work, our unequal division of labour at home and why it's so hard for everyone – but women especially – to feel they deserve an elusive moment of peace.
