Certified nutritionist and first-time author Adler serves up a pragmatic and sustainable guide to the healing power of good food. After a childhood marked by poverty and neglect, Adler found herself in early adulthood with a laundry list of physical and emotional ills. She began an intense study of nutrition and global diets, leading her to the belief that we should approach “food as medicine.” That credo is the bedrock of her simple approach, which emphasizes whole and fermented foods (the latter to promote a healthy gut); protein to crush sugar cravings; and whole fats for bone health, immunity, and satiety. Also included are a discussion of the link between good nutrition and good sex, an analysis of the emotional demons that lead to negative food choices, and 24 pages of recipes. Adler’s book is an essential healthy living primer that’s equal parts no-holds-barred memoir and low-key self-help tome, and a vital resource for anyone who wants to live a healthier, more empowered life.
