Good Enough to Warrant Two Posts

I haven't been blogging much lately for a number of reasons, mostly because I've been trying to spend more time OFF the computer and IN the "real" world and my own "real" world happens to include a lot of reading material.

There is one book that has captivated me beyond words and I am encouraging all my family, friends and clients to read it immediately. I wrote about it here - - and am again going to sing the praise of the author, Johnny Bowden, and his book, "150 Healthiest Foods," on this blog.

Having lost 60+ pounds since high school, I've been no stranger to diets and eating plans. But I've never lost site of the notion that real, "live" food is the best way to go, for the purposes of managing weight and being healthy overall. Johnny Bowden takes this philosophy to heart and hones in on exactly what we should be eating.

Now that I know which foods are the absolute best, in terms of their nutrients, I'm not wasting time and money on anything processed. It just doesn't make sense. There is so much value in eating simply, locally and reasonably. Do something great for yourself and your family and order this book. I promise, you won't be disappointed!

Here's to vitality in 2010!

Have you seen Food Inc.?? I also recently read "Everything I Want to do Is Illegal." I've always tried to stay away from processed foods, but it is so hard when I'm fixing meals for a family of five on a daily basis.

That movie and book really affected me though. It's just nasty the way Americans eat.

Anyway, I'll have to check out that book.

I already have too much guilt in my life. Leave my processed food and soda alone! LOL!
