The holiday season is stuffed full of great food and over-indulgence, and it can be difficult to stick to your healthy eating habits in the face of countless holiday parties, family gatherings, and office cookie exchanges. If you need some help eating healthy either during or after the holiday season, or any other time of the year, Mark Hyman has a book—or several!—for you. Dr. Hyman is a physician and bestselling author with a passion for helping people understand how food affects their overall health. Here’s your complete guide to Mark Hyman books so that you can stay nourished and healthy all year long!
How and what we eat matters, as Hyman shows readers in this book about the global food network and how it is influenced by politics and corporations. In this book, he discusses how to develop an awareness of where food comes from, and how by making some simple changes, our food chain can become more sustainable, healthier, and more economic. This is an informative look at how food is integral to our lives, but also to our societies.
Some information about food is repeated so often, we take it for granted as being the truth. But Dr. Hyman is here to change that by clearing up common misconceptions about what is actually healthy and what isn't. By looking at the science of how our bodies process food, and the function of food in our society, he debunks myths and offers readers a clear way forward so they can eat to feed themselves, and to stay healthy.
A great follow up to Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? is this cookbook, which takes all of Dr. Hyman's advice and insight on healthy living and applies it to nutritional and delicious recipes. You'll find over 100 dishes in this cookbook, which is a budget and lifestyle conscious collection that includes recipes for pegan, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, and dairy-free diets!
