The Guide to Healthy Eating is a wonderfully well-written and easy-to-read book authored by Dr. David Brownstein and co-authored by Sheryl Shenefelt, C.N. This book discusses macro-nutrients (fats, carbs, proteins), sweeteners, salts, nuts, legumes, and offers practical advice on snacks for kids. Each chapter includes FAQs followed by “Remove-and-Replace” sections.
Perhaps the real help that comes from the book (at least for me, since I’m already a healthy eater) is the fact that Dr. Brownstein gives shopping lists or suggestions for each section and provides practical/healthy advice that is scientifically sound.
Dr. Brownstein also gives advice on how to feed kids. Now, I’m no longer a kid, but mac-n-cheese… so good. But. Guess what? You can have it homemade! That delicious, creamy, salty bowl of goodness that you can inhale in 4 or fewer bites (my personal record) can actually be healthy! Dr. Brownstein repeatedly states the importance of instilling good health habits in our children, even at a very young age.
Overall, an excellent and useful book. I like books that not only offer health advice, but offer practical advice that allow you to exercise the advice you’ve been giving, and doesn’t require purchasing their expensive products!
Well, this post was shorter. If there’s any healthy books you’d like me to review, leave a comment and I’ll get to it as I can. Have a great day!
