There’s a lot to be said for a book that focuses on what the body NEEDS. We see so many things out there today; adds, tv shows, articles, trying to tell you what your body wants, what would make you happy, what will make you skinny, what will make you strong.
But there’s a lot of science behind bodies, and a lot of science behind food, and it’s fairly simple: eat good quality food, eat the right amount, and your body will take care of you.
(excerpt from the early part of the book)
This book starts by looking at what food really is, what kind of food your body needs, and how four basic principles on how to make it happen:
1. Whole foods are better than packaged or processed
2. Pre-planning is essential.
3. Buying fresh foods can be more expensive but you can plan ahead and buy at stores where they’re on sale, and it will force you to avoid waste
4. Remove temptations.
It gives a specific list of staples you should stock your kitchen with, then helps you figure out exactly how much you should eat, and what you should eat.
Are you seeing something important here, guys? this isn’t just for body-builders. This book is for everyone. It doesn’t matter what your goals are for your body… this is how food is supposed to work.
Moving on to the recipes: these all look amazing. I wish there were more pictures, but the instructions are super easy to follow.
I recommend this book for anyone who eats food… so, everyone?
