Ok, sometimes I seem like a really distracted bloggers, and yet at other times, I seem like an insanely dedicated blogger. Case in point: right now, I'm sitting at the gate for my flight at JFK airport, and they have started boarding people for our flight to London. But what am I doing as everyone's running around? Well, how about a book review?
I was really happy to have a chance to read Gillian McKeith's latest book, Food Bible: The Complete A-Z guide for a healthy life. Those of you who watch BBC or BBC America might be familiar with McKeith's slightly sensationalistic t.v. show "You Are What You Eat" - where she basically prods, scolds, and if necessary, shames people into eating healthy and losing weight. If so, you'll be happy to note that the tone of this book is tons more circumspect and way less shrill. I love the way the book is set out- you can either look up specific ailments (acne, motion sickness, pms, etc.) and find out how better to manage them through food, or you can read about foods and nutrients in groups. It really is an invaluable resource for anyone who is interested in whole foods eating, with plenty of emphasis on raw and plant foods.
Ack- I have more to say, but they're calling our seat numbers! Next time I "see" you guys, I'll be in jolly old England. Cheerio!
