The new year is upon us so cue everyone’s vow to boost their workout routine and start eating salads. I can’t say I don’t feel the pressure to get myself on a healthy regimen, however, I started my journey a while ago and for months I’ve been easing into a healthier lifestyle. Back in the summertime when self-esteem was low and snacking was at an all-time high, I discovered the book Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out by Jolene Hart. This book has completely changed my view on nutrition and what I’m putting in my body. Unlike most health and food related books/documentaries, Jolene Hart does not force you to get on board with her ideas and completely adapt to her lifestyle. Jolene informs you about the pros and cons of so many different food groups and how your diet choices are influencing your body from the inside out.
I’ve been carrying this book around with me in my flight attendant bag since the beginning of summer and I’ve been using it as a guide. I like to look back through the pages and reread about the foods I’m eating and what they are doing for my health. It’s become my nutrition Bible. I have pages folded and paragraphs highlighted. I’ve made shopping lists and followed along with the recipes. Call me a health freak but I find nutrition extremely interesting and this book has new information for everyone. One of my favorite aspects of this book is a section that goes over the different seasons and which “eat pretty foods” are best for different times of the year.
To accompany Eat Pretty, Jolene Hart created Eat Pretty, Live Well: A Guided Journal For Nourishing Beauty, Inside and Out. These books are meant to go hand-in-hand with each other to create your best, most informed, healthy self. This book has lists of nutrient packed foods, a 40 day journal and checklists to keep you on track. Once I finished Eat Pretty I dove into the journal. I like keep both together so I can constantly reference the other.
One of Jolene Hart’s newest books, Eat Pretty Every Day: 365 Daily Inspirations for Nourishing Beauty, Inside and Out. This book offers daily beautifying ideas, recipes, mantras, actives and so much more. I’ve only just received this book a few days ago so I look forward to getting started and continuing my Eat Pretty lifestyle.
I’m not suggesting you adapt a vegan/green/super health freak lifestyle, however, I do think everyone can benefit from reading this book and modifying your food choices.
