Overview


When navigating the world of health and wellness, we desperately seek nutrition advice from newspapers, magazines, our “know-it-all” neighbor, our grandmothers’ old wives’ tales, the muscular guy at the gym, or “expert” health-care professionals. With good intentions to become healthier, we find ourselves confused by the conflicting messages that arise from mantras to “eat this, not that.”

These complicated trends leave us at a loss of what to eat to become or stay healthy and derail our nutritious path. During the journey toward better health, the simple enjoyment of real food gets lost to the “cutting and pasting” of fad diets, such as the HCG diet and buzzwords like “superfood.”

In Living a Real Life with Real Food, registered dietician and certified nutritionist Beth Warren writes with a kosher perspective and relies on science and her clients’ experiences to show that the best way to lose weight, build strength, and help fight obesity-related diseases is to eat the natural, organic, whole foods that people have been eating for centuries—before fad diets and America’s food system got in the way.

The advice, recipes, and meal plans presented in this book will help the average reader attain a healthier and more energetic lifestyle regardless of how familiar they are with kosher, organic, and whole foods before they begin reading.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Living a Real Life with Real Food is a bible full of both information and inspiration. Beth educates us about our food and its nutritional content and then arms us with practical tips how to actually choose, purchase, prepare and eat healthier food. Her recipe section is full of flavorful options for easy, everyday meals. This book is a gift to a Jewish community that often opts for nostalgic over healthy food. Bravo to Beth Warren for changing that culture."
—Paula Shoyer, The Kosher Baker

“Beth Warren's new book, Real Life with Real Food, couldn't be more aptly titled. Not only is it real, but thoroughly demystified and clarified on all fronts: Snacks, fats, meat, poultry, etc … The scoop on all those foods that the powers-that-be never tire of presenting as your best friend one day and worst enemy the next, creating for the public nothing but confusion and still more poor health, is all there, real and unafraid, here to stay! So we can have snacks, and nuts, and a nice piece of roast chicken, and much more, only all natural. Suddenly real food becomes again what it always was: Your ally. No Diet Talk, only Real Food Talk. How liberating, and how delicious! Don't look dejectedly all over the Web, articles and books for caloric contents, nutrition guidelines, the skinny on Kosher, menu planning, pantry ingredient list, shopping lists, and much more. It's all in this precious volume, with about 50 sample recipes: It's the only resource you will need!”— Levana Kirschenbaum, Cooking Instructor, Cookbook Author: Levana's Table: Kosher Cooking for Everyone; Levana Cooks Dairy-Free: Natural and Delicious Recipes for Your Favorite "Forbidden" Foods; The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen: Glorious Meals Pure and Simple.
