Teddi Mellencamp is officially a cookbook author! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member recently released a book called All in the Kitchen via her All In life coaching brand and the work is packed with more than 50 “clean” recipes.
All in the Kitchen was written along with two of the 39-year-old reality star’s top coaches, Chelsea Elder and Mary Cofran, and contains recipes for healthy family breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks, including grilled chicken bruschetta and poached shrimp salad.
“Our ALL IN the Kitchen cookbook was created to bring variety, simplicity and flavor into daily food prep & meals, while maintaining a healthy lifestyle,” a post on the book’s Instagram page explained. “Inside the cookbook, clients will find recipes marked with ‘JS’ and ‘M’ – these are Jumpstart and Monthly plan approved meals and snacks you can confidently enjoy while working towards reaching your goals.”
According to BravoTV.com, the cookbook also features tips for grocery shopping and meal prep, as well as pointers for staying on track when you’re traveling or otherwise veering from your daily routine.
As RHOBH viewers know, Mellencamp has struggled with her weight in the past and dropped about 80 pounds many years ago after saying goodbye to fad diets.
“Those that know me have seen me fluctuate in weight my entire life,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post in August 2017. “There is no magic pill or potion that helped me reach my goals but being held accountable and holding myself accountable made all of the difference in the world to me.”
The Bravo personality now sticks to a very regimented eating and workout schedule in order to stay fit. In fact, in a recent episode of the Bravo series, the Indiana native, who was pregnant at the time, even managed to sneak in a workout hours after flying from Los Angeles to Rome for a cast trip.
In a Bravo video shared last month, Mellencamp took viewers inside her refrigerator, which is packed with healthy snacks, homemade salad dressing and pre-packaged meals. “I stock it with a bunch of pre-cut fruits and veggies so I never have an excuse,” she explained at the time, noting that she also keeps salad ingredients on hand at all times.
These days, however, the mother of three is focused on her youngest child, 5-month-old daughter Dove, who had “successful” brain surgery last month to correct lambdoid craniosynostosis. According to Mellencamp, the condition is “a very rare type of non-syndromic craniosynostosis, [which] occurs when one of the lambdoid sutures at the back of the head fuses before birth.”
The businesswoman and her husband, Edwin Arroyave, also share daughter Slate, 7, and son Cruz, 5.
