Weekend Reading: Joy Bauer's Food Cures

Weekend Reading: Joy Bauer's Food Cures

Joy Bauer's motto is: Life is hard...food should be easy, and she sticks to that motto quite well in her wonderfully helpful new book Food Cures. This almost 500 page book is chock full of super useful information. It is part reference book, part cook book, part self help, part educational - there is something fascinating and absorbing on every page. Every time I flip through, I become absorbed in what I am reading and just keep on reading even after I have found the information I was originally looking for.

The book is separated into six sections with one long section devoted entirely to losing and maintaining weight. Other sections teach you how to eat for beautiful skin and strong bones. Also of interest are the sections on how to eat if you suffer from migraines, Celiac Disease, insomnia or IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

Every section of the book, from eating to avoid cardiovascular disease, to feeding a beautiful smile, or even cooking to avoid arthritis flare ups, contains many helpful tools. Each of these healing sections has an ideal food and supplement lists, ideas for meal plans, and some tasty recipes. My favorite recipes include a Tuscan Bean Dip in the cardiovascular disease section and the Apple Cinnamon Pancakes with Lemon Yogurt Topping from the section on Celiac Disease. The pancakes are made with buckwheat flour so they are gluten free.

My favorite feature of the book is the grocery lists. Just reading the lists sends my mind into planning mode, and I dream of all the possible meals I can create from the lists of included foods. This book will teach you how to think about food from a nutritionist's point of view. And that seems like a great way to think to me.

Buy the book from Barnes and Nobles for $13.26, or look for it at your local bookstore.

I LOVE this book! It is a roadmap for a healthy you. The user-friendly tone made it a delight to read. The information at the beginning of each chapter is fantastic. Well written, very informational, helped me understand my health issues more clearly - loved the real-life stories. The 4-Step Plans are AMAZING. Quick, easy, right to the point. It helped me figure out which supplements I should take and put an amazing grocery list right into my hands. I have made some of the recipes and they are delicious (Skinny Sheppard's Pie is terrific) and the food plan is so easy to follow. I was happily surprised to find all of the research links at the end of the book. No hocus-pocus here people. Joy has created a rock solid book based on the latest research and breakthroughs - Thanks Joy!
