Weekend Reading: Eat, Drink and Be Gorgeous

If you're looking for a healthy eating guide that is fun to read, so fun that it might keep you up at night, then you need to get a copy of Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous by registered dietitian Esther Blum.
This book makes for fun reading of what could be a really dry subject. Blum offers advice and recommendations on seemingly opposite topics of what to eat before working out and what to eat if you have a hangover (and trust me, I know those are not mutually exclusive activities). Although Blum preaches moderation with all things, including alcohol, she knows there will be an occasional binge.

The book contains lists of the most pesticide sprayed foods, so you know when to pay the big bucks and buy organic. Blum also provides many tips for date night eating; one being you should order a dish with protein. Furthermore, she shares tips on making whole grains more exciting, like cooking brown rice in broth instead of water.

Each chapter begins with a pithy quote from some of our favorite female writers. The most informative chapter by far is on supplements, herbal or otherwise, for common health complaints with many of the issues being specific to our fair sex. It is interesting to know that problems like PMS and brittle nails can both benefit from calcium.

You can find the book online for $15.61 at Amazon. Or bike to your local bookstore and pick up a copy in your neighborhood.

I'll have to pick this one up. I read "Skinny Bitch" and really liked it, which was also a great read and sounds along the same lines as this book.
