Chef and creator of the popular blog, Serena is the caretaker of a dude - Logan, with some less than ideal eating habits. As a labor of love, Serena began creating healthier versions of her boyfriend’s favorite foods and posting them on her blog, where she received an overwhelming response from men and women alike.

In her book, The Dude Diet, Serena discusses several issues with men going on diets. First, many seem to be misinformed about basic nutrition. They are also, generally, not excited about eating “healthy food”. As Serena explains “You can lead a dude to the salad bar, but you can’t make him choose lettuce”. Arming dudes with the basics of nutrition, Serena is both hilarious and straight to the point with 125 easy to follow recipes (see Idiot Proof Chicken) that will motivate and inspire the dude in your life to eat healthier, yet feeling that he is not missing out on his favourite foods or sacrificing his taste buds, and that healthy does not equal boring.

Readers will also enjoy her Dude Diet Commandments - a must read, her hilarious anecdotes at the start of each recipe, and beautiful food photography. With categories like Badass Breakfasts, Game Day Eats, On the Grill, Serious Salads, Sexy Sides and Take Out Favourites, The Dude Diet is a sure win, that has made even the man in my life laughing aloud at her hilarious candor and excited about making many of the recipes outlined in this book.
