Tired of being sick and sick of being tired? In her new book, Smart Eating Made Simple, Jane Ibbetson breaks down the myths from the facts with her perspective on eating a more plant-based diet for optimum health and more energy.
With obesity and strees related diseases on the rise, Ibbeston says each of is much take responsibility to consider what we put into our bodies as something that can act as medicine, but also that there are consequences for choosing convenience and nutrient deficient foods that, although easy to ‘swallow’, do not feed the body.
In her discussion of organic, wild/sustainable, and Non-GMO foods, Ibbeston tells you,what to look for on food barcodes when shopping to determine if a product has been irradiated, if it is truly organically grown, or GMO. (GMO fruit, according to Ibbetson, has a five number barcode prefaced by the number 8.)
Although some of the concepts in this book could easily be too scientific for many consumers, Ibbeston breaks it down into bite size pieces, turning ”Simple Eating Made Easy” into a reference book on food that should be in any household that cares what they are putting into their family’s mouths and bodies on a daily basis.
The book includes more than 125 recipes that are sure to please even picky eaters.
One of our favories was the vegan Pumpkin Pancake recipe, which you can find here.
