Real Moms Love To Eat by Beth Aldrich and was very excited to read this book because from the title it didn't sound like it was going to be a restrictive diet book. This book gives you a week by week plan of five things to do each week to gradually help you change the way you approach, cook and enjoy food. Beth takes the time to educate her readers on other food related topics that include choosing the pans, kitchen organization and storage, cooking meals in advance, eating out and shopping local and organic.
This book is not just a cookbook, although there are wonderful recipes throughout the entire book, it is a lifestyle book. Over the course of 10 weeks, you will be making gradual changes (like working up to eight glasses of water a day) and trying new ways of preparing your food and learning how to make the best food choices that you are spending your hard earned money on.
As a mom herself, she knows first hand our worries about getting enough healthy food in to our children and getting them to eat it without any complaints. Her recipes are kid-tested, mom-approved. She knows first hand that we don't have hours to spend preparing gourmet meals, but we still want our food to look like we spent as much time on it. She also has the same concerns that we do over toxins in the very things we cook and stores our food in and lays it all out for us with a simple plan. She is a Real Mom and she Loves to Eat and wants to share with everyone how you can too (and without the guilt.)
