3-16-11: Secrets to a Healthy Diet
Every month, our nutrition diva Monica Reinagel stops by our studio to give us nutrition news, tips, and to shed life on myths. This month, she’s sharing those secrets in her new book: Secrets for a Healthy Diet: What to Eat, What to Avoid, and What to Stop Worrying About.
The book includes tips for how to figure out what to buy organic (she says spend your organic bucks on what’s known as the “Dirty Dozen”–find out more at the Environmental Working Group) and whether you REALLY need to drink eight glasses of water a day. (Not if you’re eating a lot of water-filled fruits and veggies.) The book also has recipes such as this delightful cranberry quinoa salad.
You can get a free sample chapter (and a couple more recipes) here. And if you want to listen to Monica on your iPod in addition to on your radio, sign up for her Nutrition Diva podcast.
