Real Moms Love to Eat

Just the title of this book speaks to me. Yes, I am a mom and I love to eat. So what is this book all about?

The book is written in a mom-to-mom conversational tone, with friendly advice and recommendations. It’s divided into three sections, which include a fun and easy-to-follow 10-part plan for moms to implement to make gradual, life-long changes in their approach to food and 21 days of meal suggestions, tips, recipes and lifestyle exercises—all to help you continue your love affair with food to look fabulous. Beth’s approach to healthy eating, losing weight and feeling fabulous, is simple and realistic for busy moms. You’ll learn a lot about the food you eat and how it impacts your body and still have loads of fun experiencing new foods and enjoying life. 

Wow, this book sounds like it was written for me! I truly do have a love affair with food. I just adore it. I love to try new things, indulge in sweets, and comfort myself with the classics. And all too often I am making the wrong choices when it comes to food. Hey, I'm a busy mom if a toddler and sometimes convenience or cravings trump the right choices.

Picking the right choices is especially hard for me because I'm not educated on the right choices. To me healthy food is salad and veggies. Really, how much salad can a girl eat? I find it boring and I'm not a huge fan. So this book sounds like it would help me become familiar with foods that are good for you and taste great. Boy, do I need that in my life!

I love that this book is written by a woman who understand what it's like to be a mom... because she is one. How often do you find yourself picking on your kid's leftovers or munching on the cookies you gave for a snack? But in my case it's one cookie for my daughter and 8 for me. I need help! And this book may be the way to get it. And I love that it encourages gradual changes as opposed to starting from scratch and throwing yourself into a tizzy!
