Since today is RD Day (Registered Dietitian Day), I like to give a big shout out these incredible new books written by my fellow RDs. You cannot go wrong adding any --or all --of these to your healthy bookshelf. Each takes a smart, food-loving, non-diet approach to eating well and reflects the best of our profession.
1) Cooking Light The Food Lover's Healthy Habits Cookbook: Great Food & Expert Advice That Will Change Your Life by Janet Helm RD and the editors of Cooking Light
Janet Helm is a true leader and innovator in the dietitian community ---and a simply delightful person---she knocks it out of the park with this, her first, book. Besides having terrific information, ideas and recipes galore, it is the most visually exciting healthy cookbook I have ever seen. It has a magazine-like feel, packed with colorful, photo-driven graphics and lots of fun tips from top bloggers and Cooking Light readers sprinkled throughout. This book gives you real-world advice to make 12 new, healthy habits that can certainly add up to a better you.
2) The Best Things You Can Eat by David Grotto RD
Dave Grotto, well known as the “guy-a-titian” has smarts and a terrific sense of humor, both of which show up in spades in this good food guide. As I wrote in my blurb on the book’s jacket, this book “is like a Fortune 500 for food-- a who’s who in nutritional wealth that celebrates the healthy bounty real food provides.” Want to know which fish is highest in Omega-3 and what the top source of Vitamin C really is? Then this is the book to grab.
3) Clean Eating for Busy Families by Michelle Dudash RD
Michelle Dudash is a classically trained chef and registered dietitian with a serious passion for food. Her culinary style has always appealed to me, and it really shines in this beautiful family-oriented cookbook. Besides great recipes and beautiful photos, it includes detailed shopping lists and tips like “Ten Tips for Dealing with Picky Eaters.”
