Featured Giveaway: Joy Bauer’s “Food Cures” – What Does “Healthy” Mean to You?!

Much of this site is dedicated to Healthy Living. Most of us value our health, but what does “health” mean to you? A while back, I shared my definition as follows:

“strong, sound & whole
body, mind & soul,
from proper rest, spirit refresh,
nutritious foods, water
& balanced exercise”

Joy Bauer has a Masters degree in Science and is a Registered Dietician and Certified Dietician Nutritionist. She is often seen on the Today show, sharing recipes and tips on healthy living. Today, I have a special offer direct from Joy!

The Prize: one free copy of Joy Bauer’s Revised and Updated Food Cures Cookbook shipped directly from JoyBauer.com! Entry Guidelines after the book review below.

Joy’s book Food Cures: Eat Right to Get Healthier, Look Younger, and Add Years to Your Life has been completely revised and updated. This is NOT your average cookbook! With 500+ pages of tips, recipes, and how to make eating healthful foods easy (instead of another burden in your life or a crazy fad diet), this book is at the top of my list for helpful cookbooks and nutrition resources! Here’s an overview:

Part 1 – “Welcome to My Office” includes two introductory chapters and tips on how to use the book and “think like a nutritionist.”

Each chapter after this includes details about various food-related health issues and a 4-step program for the targeted concern:

  • Step 1: Start with the Basics – tips and tricks for dealing with your concern
  • Step 2: Your Ultimate Grocery List – featured in the meal plan
  • Step 3: Going Above and Beyond – to maximize your results
  • Step 4: Meal Plans – a selection of breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and fun food options (with recipes) from which to choose.

Part 2 – “Losing Weight” – Chapter 3 includes weight loss basics, formulas, charts, an explanation of how different foods affect your weight, and a plan overview for creating your own meal plan.

Part 3 – “Looking Great” includes 3 chapters on food that helps skin, hair, and your shiny whites (what Joy calls “Feeding a Beautiful Smile”).

Part 4 – “Living Long and Strong” includes 6 chapters on foods that influence Cardiovascular Disease, Arthritis, Type 2 Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Vision and Memory.

Part 5 – “Feeling Good” includes 7 chapters on foods that affect your mood, migraines, PMS, insomnia, IBS, Celiac Disease, and cancer prevention.

Finally, Part 6 – “Resources” includes how to read a nutrition label, a detailed list of references for each chapter and an in-depth index.

Still intrigued?! Well, you may be in luck! Joy Bauer is providing one copy of her Food Cures book to a lucky reader of My Journey To Lean! Want to win it?
