As the countdown to the new year approaches, I have been spending time reflecting on what goals and resolutions I would like to make. I am just as guilty as anyone else for saying, “No really, this year I’m going to eat healthier” and “I actually am going to workout 3 times a week.” When I was introduced to the book Passionate Nutrition I realized I had the tool to commit to these goals and keep my excitement about a healthy lifestyle last all year.
Immediately from the start of the book, I was hooked reading about nutritionist Jennifer Adler’s personal story. She was malnourished throughout her childhood and began to develop stomach problems. In college, while researching ways to help her mother fight cancer, nutrition sparked Jennifer’s interest. During trips abroad she noticed how frequently fruits, vegetables and spices were used in healthy and remedial cooking. This began Jennifer’s journey which eventually lead to her become a nutritionist and open clinics in the Pacific Northwest.
What resonates most with me from the book is Jennifer’s unique philosophy about nutrition. She writes, “The core of what I do revolves not just around food, but around our relationship with it.” It is not about strict fad diets or recipes with superfoods we have never heard of; nutrition is a lifestyle that is woven together by moderation, education and listening to your body. Passionate Nutrition empowers you to look at health on the little and big picture. Healthy eating is not just counting calories or vitamins of every dish, it’s embracing a positive relationship with food and healing your body from the inside out.
In the book, Adler covers everything from weight loss to beauty to sex. The book is jam-packed with tips, recipes, snack ideas, personal stories and nutrition facts. To kick off 2015 and healthy resolutions, I will be giving away one copy of Passionate Nutrition by Jennifer Adler! Giveaway will close on Thursday, January 1st at 12:00 AM.
Love food. Love self. Love life.
