I’m sure you’ve seen the commercial where kids are playing soccer in junk food costumes while the mother’s remark at how sluggish the kids seem. Some days I think that is the perfect way to describe how we feel when we are too busy to take care of ourselves. How often we forget that we are more than a mom, but often we are a wife and most of all a woman. A woman who deserves to feel sexy and wonderful even with the demands that are placed on us day in and day out.
Chef Jessica Porter has recently released a cookbook embracing that idea – even with it’s semi-controversial title,The MILF Diet: Let the Power of Whole Foods Transform Your Body, Mind, and Spirit…Deliciously.(January 1, Simon and Shuster) This new cookbook is inspired by a new breed of young, fit moms who embrace the term MILF as empowering. Once a slang word for a sexually attractive mom, the term MILF has been downright aspirational. These moms eat a plant-based diet but they aren’t strictly vegan or macrobiotic. They just want to eat the food that will keep them lean, keep their hair shiny, and give them energy.
“MILF is a term that reunites sexuality with the great maternal gifts of motherhood It is one four letter word we could AND should get behind,” states Jessica.
Special Guest: Jessica Porter

The MILF Diet is the perfect cookbook for women who want to combine health and happiness. It’s a great way to kick-off the New Year with some resolutions to get healthy!
