Recipe Book Review: Snack Girl to the Rescue

Half recipes, half advice, Lisa Cain's "Snack Girl to the Rescue" calls itself a "real life guide to losing weight and getting healthy." Cain provides some practical tips for various situations, a lot of which (parties, drinking, etc) I could not personally relate to. She stresses small steps for a healthier life, but at the same time emphasizes eating healthier. Here's where I had a problem. Most of her recipes are not for picky eaters like me. I was hoping the book would have snacks that were healthier version of fatty foods I like, but the recipes are more for people who like vegetables and fruits. There were very few that appealed to me. So the book is not for everyone. If you're one to underline tips (even if some of them are obvious) and then make sure you memorize and apply them, this may be a book for you. But I couldn't get much out of it. I did, however, find Cain's insights on nutritional labels and food Marketing interesting.

* I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review of it.
