I know it has been forever since I did my last post. Well today I finally finished Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin. These ladies do a wonderful job of telling the reader how to eat healthy and why he or she should do it. In each chapter they tell you about the meat industry, the dairy industry, and of course our government and how they put the blinders on the nation on what is truly healthy for you. With their provocative language, graphic images, and compartmentalized chapters it makes it easy to understand and to read. All of it leading up to how we can change our lives, which to me is the best part about it. A lot of people tell you what you shouldn’t eat and why you shouldn’t, but they rarely tell you what you should eat, why, and where it can be found. They also continue to break down the foods and supplements that should be avoided if you want to try and shop on your own.
I thought that being a college student that eating like this would be so difficult because a lot of it involves cooking. What I have found out is a lot of can be bought like other things in the frozen food section, which makes me ecstatic because that means I can eat it when I have the time. Also because they do such a good job of writing out for me what I should eat, I’m able to take the list into a grocery store with me and make my decisions from there. I think that they do a very good job and people should really take the time to read their book to try and not only for the knowledge, but to try and live a healthier lifestyle as well..
With this book I have also bought Skinny Bitch in the Kitch which is a cookbook that they have put together including all the substitute ingredients and an important thing to me is that I’m still able to bake! There are healthy ways to enjoy chocolate cake and cheesecake and I plan on experimenting with it.
