A New Kind of “Diet”: Dr. Linda Harper’s ‘Eat: A Guide to Understanding Your Natural Relationship with Food’

     For over one hundred years, our culture has promoted dieting—with the goal of losing weight—as the acceptable way to eat. With this aim of weight loss, a diet determines your eating choices and in turn creates a thought system that prevents you from trusting your natural ability to make the right choices about eating. Our inner wisdom, or best self, quietly speaks to us through intuition, gut feelings, physical cravings and thoughts about the present moment, whereas beliefs focused on specific outcomes, such as weight loss-focused dieting, push their way to the forefront of our minds and block our ability to enjoy the present. The purpose of this book is to remove the barriers preventing you from accessing and trusting your own best self in choosing and creating each eating experience.
     ‘Eat’ provides the tools you need to remove the thoughts that are obstructing your inner wisdom and replace those thoughts with ones that will guide you back to everyday eating choices that stem from your best self. Linda R. Harper’s simple five-step guide will help you access your best self and discover your natural and healthy relationship with food, leaving the rules of dieting behind.

“The most inspirational book I have ever read!”

Instead of yet another fad diet, [Dr. Harper] introduces a method focused on teaching you how to throw away all of the diet rules and obsessions that you may not have even realized were running your life. She shows you how to look within yourself in order to find your “best self” and she gives you the tools necessary to rebuild your inner trust with food and eating. Rebuilding this trust is the key to finally achieving peace with food and becoming a “soulful” eater. I recommend this book to anyone struggling with dieting or facing a negative relationship with food; it will change how you feel about eating forever.

REVIEW: Blue Star Books’ ‘The Celiac Cookbook: Wonderful Wheat-Free Recipes for the Whole Family’

 

Image
The Celiac Cookbook is the must-have manual for anyone newly diagnosed celiac or gluten sensitive/intolerant…This is the book I wish I had when I learned that gluten was the root cause of my gastrointestinal issues over 3 1/2 years ago. Since that time I have read many books and cookbooks about the horrors of wheat, how to bake, cook, live and eat gluten free and none of them come close to giving such an in-depth, almost encyclopedia-like breakdown of celiac disease, gluten, wheat and how to cook and bake gluten free.

With the foreword presented by one of the leading experts in IBS/ food allergies, intolerances, and the digestive ecosystem Dr. Stephen Wagen of the IBS Treatment Center in Seattle (www.HealthierWithoutWheat.com) the cookbook helps you fully understand celiac disease, what it is, how it affects the intestines, and how to treat it through a gluten free diet. This cookbook initially reads like a mini encyclopedia giving a breakdown of all of the gluten free grains and their properties as well as describing how each grain works in baked goods. This is key since all gluten free grains are not created equal and it is important to know and understand how to use these flours in your cooking.

Another facet that makes this cookbook great is that it gives you 5 gluten free flour mix recipes that are needed for the baked goods contained within the book. These blends are listed at the beginning so you can be prepared to bake many of the treats that follow.

All of this information is presented in a user friendly, easy-to-follow way, holding your attention and keeping you engaged. But make no mistake, this is a cookbook and putting the information aside, the book is loaded with recipes for scrumptious cakes, pies, breads, scones, biscuits, muffins and more. There are over 300 recipes for just about every meal you could imagine and since I’m a cook, this is my dream.

The Celiac Cookbook is a wonderful addition to any cook’s collection whether they are gluten free or not. The information on celiac disease alone makes it worth its list price and the plethora of recipes only add to its value.

Gilled Vegetable Quinoa Salad

1 cup quinoa, uncooked
1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise
1 medium yellow squash, cut lengthwise
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tbsp garlic cloves, roasted
1 tbsp shallots, roasted
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
3 Roma tomatoes cut lengthwise
2 cups vegetable stock or water
¼ cup olive oil
¼ tsp dried basil
¼ tsp dried oregano
¼ tsp dried thyme
¼ tsp dried rosemary, crushed

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine olive oil, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary and unroasted garlic in a zip-top bag or large bowl. Add the zucchini, squash, and tomatoes to the marinade, mixing to coat thoroughly. Let sit 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

Roast the shallots and the remaining garlic for 8-10 minutes; let cool, then chop coarsely.

Remove vegetables from the marinade and grill over medium-high heat, let cool, then cut into 1-inch pieces.

To cook the quinoa, rinse grain in colander under cold water to remove naturally occurring resin; drain. Bring water to a boil in a pot; add quinoa. Simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.

Toss cooked quinoa, grilled vegetables, roasted garlic and shallots, and Parmesan cheese in a bowl.

Serve immediately.
