Intuitive Eating
by Eveyln Tribole and Elyse Resch



This book is for you if: you’re burnt out on diets and the dieting mentality and want a fresh view of health.

This book is NOT for you if: you’re looking for a diet.

Why I like it:

  • It guides you on how to reject the diet mentality and gives an overview of how broken the diets are
  • Offers strategies on how to feel your feelings without using food
  • Helps you achieve a new and safe relationship with food and your body

The Rules of “Normal” Eating A Commonsense Approach for Dieters, Overeaters, Undereaters, Emotional Eaters, and Everyone in Between!

by Karen Koenig


This book is for you if:

  1. you don’t feel in control with food or you spend a lot of time obsessing about food
  2. if you’re feeling lost in a sea of “good” and “bad” foods and you’re not sure what a normal, healthy relationship with food feels like.

This book is NOT for you if: you’re looking for a diet.

Why I like it:

  • It’s an easy read.
  • The author does an amazing job of getting inside your head and helps you spot old diet-talk, distorted thinking, and identify fears that hold you back.

Weeknight Fresh & Fast simple, healthy meals for every night of the week

by Kristine Kidd



This book is for you if: you want an actual cookbook instead of getting lost in the land of online recipes

This book is NOT for you if: you struggle to try new foods

Why I like it:

  • Pictures!  Almost every recipe has a picture, and the images are inspiring!
  • There’s everything from salads to pizza, pasta, and one-dish meals.  It has TONS of variety, and the meals are pretty well-balanced.
  • It’s organized by season
  • The author gives you tips for variations like making things more/less spicy or switching up your protein source.  And it’s cheap to buy online 🙂
