Giada De Laurentiis' New Cookbook Just Reached An Impressive Milestone

When Giada De Laurentiis' 10th cookbook came out earlier this month, the celebrity chef declared on Instagram it was "the book I am most proud of." The Food Network fixture who's appeared on Giada Entertains and numerous other shows didn't just compile her latest TV recipes to make her new cookbook, called Eat Better, Feel Better. As she explained on Instagram, the book was the result of a 10-year personal health journey.

De Laurentiis now has another reason to be proud of Eat Better, Feel Better. While creating something personally meaningful doesn't always translate into commercial success, that's exactly what happened in this case. The New York Times' latest bestseller lists are out, and Eat Better, Feel Better sits at the very top of the newspaper's "Advice, How-To & Miscellaneous" list.

De Laurentiis posted what appears to be a screenshot of the bestseller list on Twitter on March 25, adding no words of her own – just three heart emojis.

Eat Better, Feel Better isn't Giada De Laurentiis' first cookbook bestseller

Fans of Giada De Laurentiis who follow her on Twitter congratulated her for achieving number-one status on a New York Times bestseller list with her new cookbook, Eat Better, Feel Better. While De Laurentiis' tweet motivated at least one Twitter user to buy the book, other followers, clearly, had not only bought it but actually read it. "Thanks for such a fun and informative book," Cathy Ives tweeted. "I really love the recipes that use flour alternatives." Twitter user Kels commented, "The way you wrote this book is like no other cookbook. It's an easy new way of thinking (of) and approaching food! Love it."

Years ago, with the help of a doctor, De Laurentiis discovered that the reason for her lack of energy and digestive troubles was the decadent foods she was indulging in – things like rich pasta, fried foods, and ice cream (via Williams Sonoma). Eat Better, Feel Better focuses on foods that were kinder to De Laurentiis, including dark greens, whole grains, and fresh herbs.

While topping a New York Times bestseller list is always something to be proud of, De Laurentiis is no stranger to the list. Among the nine covers to her previous cookbooks, which are displayed on a page on her website, five have little badges that declare them to be New York Times bestsellers. Some even made it to number one.
