Unjunk Your Junk Food: Book Review

12:19 PM

Sometimes being a holistic health blogger has its advantages. Getting first access to hot, new books is one of them. I was recently able to get my hands on a copy of Unjunk Your Junk Food: Healthy Alternatives to Conventional Snacks by Andrea Donsky and Randy Boyer (with Lisa Tsakos).

I'm a big fan of the visually-appealing book series "Eat THIS, Not THAT" but found that the author often promoted foods based purely on the fact that they were "low-fat" or "reduced salt" with no attention of purity of ingredients. This left a huge gap in the market for an informative books that suggests healthy alternatives for the person pursuing just that - the healthy alternative lifestyle.

This book gives the junk food lover actual alternatives that feature less processed ingredients, low or no artificial colours and flavours, and ultimately more whole foods that nourish your body.

As I hoped, the book is conveniently sized and attractively illustrated. At just over 250 pages you get all the information you need without feeling like you need to search through a novel to get the information you're looking for. It clearly outlines easy and smart alternatives to the most popular junk foods.

Forget about giving up the things you love, like potato chips and mint-chocolate ice cream - just flip to the appropriate page and find a better choice with less unhealthy ingredients.

The book also offers tips for wise shopping including how to read food labels the right way and how to avoid dangerous additives.

I thoroughly enjoyed the read and am happy to have it in my home for future reference and grocery shopping assistance. Many thanks to naturallysavvy.com for the opportunity to read this book. It's a great site to check out for all your natural health needs!
