Enjoying Food Peace by Bonnie R. Giller

This product was recommended by Rebecca Peaslee from 310 Nutrition

Enjoying Food Peace is an anti-diet, “diet” cookbook that is based on the concept of intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is a practice that can help individuals reach their health and weight loss goals while honoring their physical and mental health, ultimately rejecting diet-mentality and all that comes along with it. This recipe book not only includes nourishing and indulgent recipes but also goes into the basics of intuitive eating, giving readers the knowledge of what is it and how to practice it day-to-day. Another reason for recommending this book is that it’s written by a Registered Dietitian. When looking for food/nutrition books (especially diet books), it’s important that the information is coming from an expert in the nutrition space to ensure the information is accurate.
