I’m glad you guys have been enjoying my recaps of Shake Your Soul dance yoga and Max Fish’s Tiki Dinner! A little bit of movement, a little bit of enjoyment. That’s what I’m trying to keep in mind – the fact that it’s all about balance. I also can’t believe I forgot to show you guys yesterday what I did with my Tiki Dinner lei the day after the dinner:
Let’s get to the purpose of today’s post. How many Real Housewives fans do we have here? Come on, don’t be shy. I know you’re out there. I’m not one of you, but I do have a fan living in my midst – my sister DVRs the series like it’s her job. And while I may not be a fan of the Real Housewives shows, I AM a fan of food and fitness.
Coincidentally, those happens to be the topics of focus in the Real Housewives of New Jersey star (and Celebrity Apprentice contestant) Teresa Giudice‘s new cookbook, “Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit“. The 60 recipes inside are lighter versions of some of Teresa’s favorite Italian fare. The dishes are also extremely easy to prepare – key tools to living a healthy lifestyle while on the go, as many women nowadays are. Some overarching lessons (like a veggie grilling tutorial) are also included. They can be widely applied to food outside of the recipes included in the book! So even if Italian isn’t your favorite type of cuisine, you can still learn a thing or two from Teresa. She definitely looks healthy and vibrant! Though I have to admit…a Jersey-girl tan may also have something to do with that 😉
Mohegan Sun Casino is hosting a FREE book signing with Teresa herself next Friday, 7/6, at 9PM! It’s all part of the Shops at Mohegan Sun’s Reality Check series, in which fans of reality shows can come meet and hang out with their favorite reality TV stars. Again, I do not watch much reality TV myself, but could not resist the chance to share this event and opportunity with my readers, many of whom I know love their reality TV guilty pleasures!
So who wants to meet Teresa? Do you want to read her cookbook? My friends at Mohegan are offering a giveaway to a Cait Plus Ate reader! The winner will be able to choose one of two prize options:
- two front-of-line passes for you and a friend for the 7/6 event at Mohegan Sun – and a free copy of “Fabulicious!: Fun & Fit” to have signed

I’m so thankful to Mohegan for sponsoring a giveaway that all of my readers can enter. Even if you don’t live near Mohegan Sun and can’t attend the event, a new fit and healthy cookbook is always a treat!
