Many critics of Italian TV personality Giada De Laurentiis have wondered how she can eat her recipes and stay so petite. Inside Giada's trailer, she shares that almond butter on brown rice bread is her comfort food. Come on! Her latest book, Giada's Feel Good Food ($33), which comes out Nov. 5, will probably be in the same vein as Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Good, as most of the recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan. Like many American women fascinated by Giada's eternal youth, I can't wait to follow in her healthy footsteps.
