Shmoo Review: 101 Natural Healthy Eating Tips

This week Emily Davidson was kind enough to send me a review copy of her new book, 101 Tips: Healthy Eating, Naturally.

Emily is described on the cover as a "Healthy Eating Expert Guru" (love it!) She's put her knowledge of natural and holistic nutrition to work creating this little introduction to healthy eating made simple.

If you know anyone who has never eaten healthy food before and is looking for a good place to start -- maybe a teen or young adult just getting out on their own, or someone faced with a sudden health scare -- this is a great gift, perhaps tucked into a gift basket with healthy basics or some cooking tools.

Topics include basics like how to make a healthy salad, how to survive a trip to a restaurant, understanding ingredient labels, how to steam vegetables and cook grains, and much more. Although the book is not completely vegan, veganism is addressed and topics do include vegan protein sources, dairy and egg substitutes, and appropriate supplements for a veg*an diet. The book ends with a few easy recipes to get the health newbie started, like Roasted Vegetables, Super Oatmeal, and Watercress Stir Fry.

Ooh, I'd love to hear her Super Oatmeal recipe...! I make one that I think is pretty super (and healthy) with steel-cut oats cooked in water, with just enough agave nectar and a dash of cinnamon to sweeten it. I'd like to know a trick to add fresh fruit (like apple) to it, though.

Looks like a good stocking stuffer. I'm glad to see veganism included under the title of "healthy" since so many people seem to think it isn't and it's difficult to maintain.

Looks like a good read..... Too bad it's not available on the Kindle. I requested it be available. Maybe if enough people request it will be available soon!
