Eating is my passion, but I’ve become more aware that a lot of what I put in my body is highly toxic. Author Michael Pollan outlines for us 64 simple principles to follow, which include not eating “cereals that change the color of your milk” to “eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself!” This book could change your life and improve your health.
Also, if you want to add some dreamy ballads to your next summertime mixer, then take a listen to one of my favorite female vocalists, the lovely Duffy!
Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual by Michael Pollan
“Food Rules will open your eyes to how effortless healthy eating can be. Not only are the rules and their explanations compelling and to the point (64 rules), but they highlight common sense knowledge that we seem to have forgotten. Not anymore though – you’ll definitely have this book in mind the next time you’re at the grocery store!” – Elysha Schickel – RebelMom Staffer
READ THIS! Excerpts from Michael Pollan’s Food Rules
Endlessly by Duffy
Duffy’s vocals may share similarities with Amy Winehouse’s vintage voice, but this Welsh lass has her head on straight and breaks out of her retro-mould with her latest album Endlessly. – RebelMom Pick!
“With its weeping strings and bruised piano triplets, “Too Hurt to Dance” is a study in heartbreak, as well as a roomy vehicle for Duffy’s vulnerable yet powerful vocals. The force of that voice, something that tends to be concealed by the occasional girlishness of her phrasing, is likewise notable on the torchy “Don’t Forget Me” and the pining, Brenda Lee-inspired title track.” – Bill Friskics- Warren for The Washington Post Pop Music Blog
