February was a short and busy month for me. Therefore I have only 2 books to review.
The first book is Eating Clean for Dummies. I can highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to make a change in their lifestyle. It has to be said that whatever you read in this book is trustworthy since it’s written by a medical doctor and a nutritionist.
The book is divided into individual chapters so you can jump to whatever topic interests you the most. I read it from beginning to end, but of course you don’t have to do that. Since there are so many things you can learn in this book, I’ll just quickly list them here since it’s easier for the eye to read 😉
- You (obviously) learn about Clean Eating
- Dangers of processed foods
- Figuring out how your body works and what it needs
- The importance of proteins, carbs and fats
- Vitamins, minerals, fibers and phytochemicals
- How to prevent diseases such as high cholesterol, cancer, diabetes and autoimmune diseases
- Understand restaurant menus and what to avoid
And then you also learn about things like:
- Food allergies
- Gluten sensitivity
- Vegetarian lifestyle
- Vegan lifestyle
The best part is, on the last 80 pages there are plenty of healthy recipes.
The second book was Looking for Alaska by John Green. Even though he writes for young adults, I was blown away with his book The Fault in our Stars. With Looking for Alaska I was quite disappointed. It’s about a bunch of teenagers being in boarding school, rebelling, drinking, smoking and well, just being teenagers. It was a bit on a “dumb” level for me, sure it had a few okay moments but all in all I wouldn’t recommend this book further if you’re above 18. For underaged only 😉
