Giada de Laurentiis’ on Food

Food is not the enemy!”  “It’s not food; it’s how much you eat.  I eat pasta, but a small portion, not a giant one, and I eat more greens than carbs.”  “A good gauge is to think in terms of an appetizer-sized plate rather than dinner-sized.  Then tell yourself that you’ll savor every bite.”  “To make each morsel satisfying, the quality of ingredients is paramount.”  “Eat what’s in season.  When you don’t, it doesn’t taste like anything, and it needs a load of fat or salt or sugar to taste good.  A strawberry only tastes like a strawberry certain times of the year.”

Giada de Laurentiis’ Food Indulgence

“Honestly, I don’t think I could cut out chocolate.  It’s an addiction, and it would be very difficult to break.  And quite frankly, I don’t know why I should.”

Giada de Laurentiis’ Workout

Morning workouts, every day, are the best thing for me.  I do yoga, which I got into while I was pregnant, or a half hour on the elliptical and 20 minutes on the treadmill.  Getting up and getting my blood going gives me energy for the whole day.”
