Nutrition Stripped Book Review:

Discover just how deliciously simple whole foods cooking can be with this essential cookbook, based on the popular Nutrition Stripped blog, featuring more than 100 exciting and good-for-you recipes and color photography throughout. Search the web and you’ll find a variety of recipes from “health food” bloggers and “nutritionists.” Yet many of these recipes often follow trends or fad diets. Now, McKel Hill, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and wellness coach, takes you back to bare basics to enjoy the amazing benefits and incomparable flavor of whole foods—nature’s true healthy bounty. Drawing inspiration from nature, the turning of the seasons, the world of plants, nutrient dense foods and hidden gems in the world of superfoods, Hill celebrates simplicity, and shares her vast professional knowledge and expertise in this practical and easy-to-use cookbook. But Nutrition Stripped isn’t just an approach to eating—it’s a lifestyle that will help you look, feel, and be your best. Whole foods cooking is the foundation of health and can be enjoyed no matter what your dietary preference, whether it's vegan, paleo, or gluten-free. Hill’s whole food, plant-based recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, and entirely free from processed food, yet all can be adapted to specific tastes and needs, making them realistic, approachable, global, and livable. Start your day with delights such as Turmeric Milk (the new green smoothie), Carrot Cake Quinoa Porridge, or Plantain Flatbread with Poached Egg and Honey. For dinner, feast on Beetroot Burgers with Maple Mustard or Carrot Gnocchi with Carrot Greens Pesto. And don’t forget dessert—indulge with a mouthwatering slice of Raw Peach Tart with Coconut Whipped Cream or some Salted Caramel Brownies. Illustrated with beautiful, modern and minimalistic color photographs, Nutrition Stripped shows you how delicious and simple it can be to eat healthier with whole foods.

Men's Health Power Training Book Review:

One of the nation's elite strength and conditioning coaches presents a unique training program designed to help men achieve functional strength and muscular balance throughout their bodies For decades, the conventional measure of an individual's strength was the amount of weight he could bench press. Now, that measure is being challenged by expert trainers like Robert dos Remedios who argue that the variety of movement patterns used in functional training is the real key to getting bigger, stronger, and more powerful. In Men's Health Power Training, this acclaimed collegiate strength and conditioning coach describes in detail the methods he has used to develop hundreds of Division I scholarship athletes, including several current NFL players. The key features that make this book a standout in the fitness field include: • exercises geared toward functional strength that can be utilized in real-world situations, from playing sports to lifting furniture • training sessions that are short, intense, and highly effective • compound, multijoint exercises that replace the less-effective isolation exercises found in many fitness books • no-nonsense dietary information utilizing a new and innovative food pyramid developed by the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition that will optimize strength gains, recovery, and physical progress

This book provides practical advice and inspiration for everyone—from Main Street to Wall Street, and everywhere between. "Finally, a book that isn't preaching to the vegan choir, but to the people in the pews—and the ones who can’t fit in those pews. This is a book for the Main Street majority who aren’t vegans. Once you read this, you'll know it's possible to get healthy and enjoy doing it—even if you live in Paramus or Peoria."—Michael Moore "A great read for vegans and aspiring vegans."—Russell Simmons "Yet another divine gift from Victoria Moran.

Eat Your Vitamins Book Review:

The A-to-Z guide to essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, so you can ditch synthetic supplements and promote health naturally with nourishing foods. Vitamins and minerals are the building blocks of good health. But the heavily processed foods that are so common in today’s modern diet are stripped of these nutrients, leaving many people nutrient deficient despite meeting (or exceeding) their daily calorie needs. The accepted solution is to take supplements created in a lab, but the dosage and interactions can be confusing, and supplements are loosely regulated and not always foolproof, especially since our bodies are designed to receive nutrients from natural, whole foods. Eat Your Vitamins features fifty key vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients essential to your health. You will find clear definitions of each nutrient along with the role it plays in the body, how it is best consumed and absorbed, recommended daily doses, and detailed lists of foods and natural sources that contain the vitamin along with a recipe for a nutrient-rich meal. Ditch the synthetic supplements and make the right choice about how to properly feed and fuel your body.

The Body Book Book Review:

Cameron Diaz shares her formula for becoming happier, healthier, and stronger in this positive, essential guide grounded in science and inspired by personal experience, a #1 New York Times bestseller. Throughout her career, Cameron Diaz has been a role model for millions of women. By her own candid admission, though, this fit, glamorous, but down-to-earth star was not always health-conscious. Learning about the inseparable link between nutrition and the body was just one of the life-changing lessons that has fed Cameron’s hunger to educate herself about the best ways to feed, move, and care for her body. In The Body Book, she shares what she has learned and continues to discover about nutrition, exercise, and the mind/body connection. Grounded in science and informed by real life, The Body Book offers a comprehensive overview of the human body and mind, from the cellular level up. From demystifying and debunking the hype around food groups to explaining the value of vitamins and minerals, readers will discover why it’s so important to embrace the instinct of hunger and to satisfy it with whole, nutrient-dense foods. Cameron also explains the essential role of movement, the importance of muscle and bone strength and why we need to sweat a little every day. The Body Book does not set goals to reach in seven days or thirty days or a year. It offers a holistic, long-term approach to making consistent choices and reaching the ultimate goal: a long, strong, happy, healthy life.

The Happiness Diet Book Review:

How to fix the Modern American Diet and reclaim our minds and waistlines “An insightful, eye opening adventure into diet and nutrition. Concise and witty, this book kept me engaged from cover to cover. A must-have for anyone serious about getting happy and healthy naturally.”—Andrew Morton, MD, Board-certified Family Physician; Former Medical Corps, US Navy and Army Infantry Medic, Desert Storm For the first time in history, too much food is making us sick. The Modern American Diet (MAD) is expanding our waistlines while starving and shrinking our brains. Rates of obesity and depression have recently doubled, and though these epidemics are closely linked, few experts are connecting the dots for the average American. Using data from the rapidly changing fields of neuroscience and nutrition, The Happiness Diet shows that over the past several generations, small, seemingly insignificant changes to our diet have stripped it of nutrients—like magnesium, vitamin B12, iron, and vitamin D, as well as some very special fats—that are essential for happy, well-balanced brains. These shifts also explain the overabundance of mood-destroying foods in the average American’s diet and why they predispose most of us to excessive weight gain. After a clear explanation of how we’ve all been led so far astray, The Happiness Diet empowers the reader to steer clear of this MAD way of life with simple, straightforward solutions, including: • A list of foods to swear off • Shopping tips and kitchen organization tricks • A compact healthy cookbook full of brain-building recipes • Practical advice, meal plans, and more! Graham and Ramsey guide you through these steps and then remake your diet by doubling down on feel-good foods—even the all-American burger. Praise for The Happiness Diet “Finally, a rock-solid, reliable, informative, and entertaining book on how to eat your way to health and happiness. Run—don’t walk—to read and adopt The Happiness Diet. This is the only diet book I’ve encountered that I can actually recommend to patients without reservation.”—Bonnie Maslin, PhD, Psychologist and author of Picking Your Battles “A lively, thorough, and iron-clad case for real food. You will never eat an egg-white omelet or soy protein shake again.”—Nina Planck, author of Real Food and Real Food for Mother and Baby “The book includes food lists, shopping tips, brain-building recipes, smart slimming strategies, and other useful tools to lose weight and keep the blues at bay.”—AM New York

Healthier Together Book Review:

Healthier Together is all about nourishing and cooking for your body and your soul--and the best way to accomplish that is with another person. Food writer and health blogger Liz Moody once followed trendy diets and ate solely for fuel, not for flavor. That changed when she met her soon-to-be-boyfriend and they started cooking nutrient- and vegetable-rich meals. She not only fell in love with food again, but she also discovered that setting goals and sticking to them is easier and more gratifying when paired with someone else. Mincing garlic and sautéing onions together eventually led the couple to marriage--proving that good food really is the universal connector! These 100+ flavor-packed recipes are designed to be cooked and enjoyed by two people, plus they're all gluten-free, dairy-free, and plant-centered. They include homemade alternatives for all the foods you love to share, such as brunch, takeout, and sweet treats. Indulge in Cardamom Banana Bread Pancakes with Candied Coffee Walnuts, Cornflake "Fried" Chicken, General Tso's Cauliflower, and Chocolate Tahini Brownie Bites. Pick your partner--near or far--and get ready to get healthy.

The Micronutrient Miracle Book Review:

Our poor health and growing waistlines can be traced back to the hidden crisis of a micronutrient deficiency. More than 90 percent of all Americans are deficient in at least one of these health-promoting vitamins and minerals and don't even know it. According to nutritionists Jayson and Mira Calton, micronutrients--vitamins and minerals essential for optimum health--are being stripped from our diet and depleted by our lifestyle habits. And these deficiencies cause today's most common illnesses. Mira herself developed advanced osteoporosis at the age of 30. But with Jayson's help, she reversed her disease through micronutrient therapy. The Caltons created The Mircronutrient Miracle, an incredible cure-all program, to help you lose weight and prevent and reverse common disorders, including obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. The Micronutrient Miracle explains the truth about what you're really eating and how your habits may be depleting essential micronutrients. It also provides an easy-to-follow 28-day plan to reverse these effects by restoring your depleted micronutrients. And the best part? This book is tailor-made to work with your lifestyle, including gluten-free, low-carb, low-fat, vegan, and Paleo recipes!

Say Bonjour to Green Cuisine—it’s the new French way to be healthy, happy, and stylish, bien sûr! No one does food and lifestyle like the French! That’s why the French approach to clean, green eating adds a dash of flair—or a drizzle of decadence—to even the humblest of fruits, veggies, and legumes. In this cheerful, charming cookbook, Rebecca Leffler shows you how they do it. She introduces her “best friend foods” like sweet potatoes and chia, whirlwinds through an entire rainbow of juices and smoothies, and keeps the focus on fitness, food, and fun in equal measures. Globally inspired, but with lots of French accents, all 150 plant-based recipes are free of gluten, soy, and refined sugar. Rebecca organizes them the natural way: by season. Feed your body what it needs during . . . Spring: Beet Rawvioli with Faux-mage, White Asparagus Velouté, Le “Chic” Cake Summer: Salade Niçoise, Cabinet Curry, “Split”-Second Banana Ice Cream Fall: Sobeautiful Soba Salad, Beauty Bourguignon, Pancrêpes, Apple Tarte Tatin Winter: Totally Wild Stuffed Squash, Amaranth Caviar, Happy Hazelnut Quinoa Bowl. Plus, enjoy Rebecca’s mood-boosting tips year round: natural beauty treatments, illustrated yoga poses, and positive playlists to sing along with as you peel, mince, and stir. Having to choose between pleasure and health is so last season. It’s time to say non to unhealthy foods and oui to color, flavor, variety, and smiles!
