Review: Eat This, Not That
There are a baffling number of these books. The supermarket guide. The restaurant guide. The cookbook. The book for kids. They vary in content some but mostly in focus. A friend in my MOPS group recommended them so I checked three of them out of the library. Upside: User friendly with pictures of products I find in my grocery store. And it's realistic to how the average family eats, with like comparisons. You can make many small changes to how you eat without the fam noticing. Also, good illustrations of otherwise dull numbers. Did you know that one jar of Snapple iced tea has the same amount of sugar as six fudgecicles? Downside: It can be hard to find what you're looking for when you want to refer back to it. And the suggested items might be "healthier" than other options, but that doesn't make it health food. Overall, really helpful.
