If you are a mom with the goal of eating healthy and feeding your family healthy foods then I have discovered a book that you will enjoy. I recently read Unjunk Your Junk Food: Healthy Alternatives to Conventional Snacks and thought it was fantastic. It it such a handy little book that informs you on the better choices to make when it comes to eating packaged foods.
We all want to pick the right foods but sometimes we just aren’t sure which ones are okay and which ones should be avoided. You may have questions like “which oil is a healthier choice?” or “I know I should cut out white sugar but are other sugars okay?” This handy little book will show you how to decide what to eat and feed your family.
It is a very quick read and also a guide that you will want to keep to reference again and again. The book is small enough for you to fit in your purse to take with you when you shop.
My family and I have been on a journey toward healthy, organic eating for the past 5 years and I was a little skeptical that I was going to agree with Unjunk Your Junk Food completely. After all of my personal research I agree with the ideas that full fat dairy and meats are good for you and eating low fat is not necessarily healthy. I tend to expect that many still believe that low (or no) fat diets are the way to go. But this book actually shares research that I agree with on this topic. They also explain sugars and which options are healthier.
If you ever spend time (precious time) standing in the grocery isles comparing labels to see which food might be a healthy choice then this book is for you. If you want a quick guide to specific foods to look for when you shop then this book is for you.
I happily recommend you read this book. Even if you know a good bit about nutrition you may discover some new things you never knew (I did). You can read more at Naturally Savvy (even read a sniplet of the book). There’s lots of other great info on the site as well.
