Obesity has hit epidemic levels. In the developed, and much of the developing world, it is now ´normal´ to be overweight with a BMI of 25 or more. And the global population is getting fatter all the time as a powerful mix of cheap foods, social behaviours, and commercial pressures drives us to the biscuit tin again and again and again. But this is not the worst of it. The sugars, salts and fats that are slowly killing us are at the same time essential for our survival. Our brains reward us when we eat them, filling us with feelings of pleasure. But modern abundance has pushed this too far - in this Guardian Short, James Erlichman lays out a frank argument in which we have become addicted to food. Full of diverse research and exploring the science of obesity and the social history of what we eat for our meals (and snacks), Addicted to Food is a powerful call for us to understand the terrible catch-22 that is driving our ever-expanding waistlines. Written with humour and passion, it will not just make you look at that custard cream in a different fashion, but enable you to understand why it tastes so delicious in the first place. 1.

From Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church, one of the most esteemed centers of African American spirituality in the country, comes Food for the Soul - a compilation of more than 100 recipes, and the many stories behind them shared by its congregation. Since its founding in 1808, Abyssinian has been a major social and religious voice of black Americans. The oldest African American church in New York State, it is a cultural melting-pot ministry with members from throughout the African diaspora - and a history of cooking reflecting that diversity. Yet beyond the great recipes for dishes such as Bahamian Seafood Cobbler, Soulful Chicken Stir-Fry, Whipping Cream Biscuits, and Mama Georgia’s Sweet Potato Pie lies a rich and textured account of how the church incorporates the creation and enjoyment of food and the care of the physical body into its love for and devotion to God and humankind. Brimming with updated, healthy renditions of favorite old dishes, Food for the Soul is also illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs. Woven through the book are stories associated with the recipes that are full of life - humorous, moving, joyful. From a churchgoer who started making spicy chili in the ‘60s as the South Bronx burned (Chef J’s 5-Alarm South Bronx Chili) to another who still re-creates the one-pot dinner that was the only meat dish her large and poor family could afford each week (Booba’s Saturday Night Special One-Pot Meal), these anecdotes and recipes come from the heart and provide deep sustenance to the body and soul. The Abyssinian Baptist Church is the second-oldest African American church in the United States and will celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2008. Abyssinian has members from Kenya, Jamaica, the United States, Ireland, Brazil, the Cameroon, Uganda, Ghana, the Bahamas, Cuba, Honduras, Panama, England, Egypt, South Africa, Grenada, Trinidad, Holland, Japan, and Nigeria. 1.

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is! answers questions big and small: What are whole foods? How do we phase the processed stuff out and the whole foods in? How do we know what to look for among the glut of choices at the grocery store? Is organic food really worth it? And what the heck is a CSA? In short, how do we navigate our way out of a food maze that was seemingly designed to trap us into consuming an endless cycle of cheap, processed, packaged junk? First, you´ll discover the four steps. These are all-important, easy-to-remember principles that touch on everything from goals to budgeting, and they´ll help steer you in the right direction every time you set out to buy food for you and your family. With these guideposts in mind, you´ll then learn all about the staples that constitute a nutrient-dense diet. From organic meats and produce to raw dairy products to freshly milled grains, you´ll learn why these foods are important, where to find them, and most importantly, how to make sure you´re getting superior nutrition from them. By the end of Section II, you´ll know if you should: Cook your meat rare or well-done. Consume visibly gelatinous bone broth. Eat eggs from chickens raised on soy. (For that matter, if you should eat soy.) Drink raw or pasteurized milk and cream. Consume full-fat, low-fat, or nonfat dairy products. Soak and/or ferment your legumes and grains before cooking them. Invest in your own home flour mill. Buy iodized salt. Drink distilled water. Buy nuts and seeds from bulk bins. Cook with canola or vegetable oil. Feed your pets cooked food. Purchase over-the-counter skin care treatments that tout collagen and antioxidants. Of course, nobody ever said that changing eating habits for the better is easy, especially for little ones. But Put Your Money W... 1. Language: English. Narrator: K.

Today a buck gets you a quick burger (or two), but what´s the real cost of that meal? The rates of chronic disease - specifically diseases like diabetes, caused by our lifestyles - have grown exponentially in recent years, edging medical expenses higher while threatening to give America its first generation to actually live shorter lives than their parents. Unfortunately finding good nutrition is no walk in the park, with more Americans living in cities, far from a farmer´s field. To overcome distance and undercut price, we rely on industry to put dinner on the table - yet this system has valued efficiency and short-term profits over our own health and the health of our environment. So how do we keep America thriving? Congressman Tim Ryan may have a soft spot for chicken wings and ice cream, but he also knows the joy of farm-fresh produce and the feel of soil between his fingers. In this audiobook, he lays out the problems we face and gives easy, actionable steps that anyone can take to solve them, from starting an herb garden to helping implement food education in schools to petitioning your elected officials. The commonsense ideas he presents, will help you improve the quality of life for you and future generations. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Congressman Tim Ryan.

Emily commits adultery while her husband´s at work. It´s her first time. She didn´t plan on having sex, nor did the old man plan on being intimate with the neighbor´s 30-year old daughter. But, as they say, shit happens. They meet by chance at the mall. He isn´t thinking of sex at all. Why would he be? She´s a married woman, and 60-year old guys, no matter how horny they are, shouldn´t have sex with a married woman no matter how sexy she is. That is, until the goody-goody sweetheart tells him of her love for her favorite food and the strange effect it has on her: eating chocolate ice cream in abundance excites Emily in a sexual way, working just like an aphrodisiac when she eats an enormous amount. This changes everything for the old man. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruno Belmar. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/078241/bk_acx0_078241_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
It is nearly impossible for the average person to maintain healthy eating habits in keeping with today´s hectic pace of living. Commercially manufactured nutritional supplements belong to an industry that is under-regulated and sketchy at best. Eating a poor diet and attempting to fix what´s lacking with processed supplementation products is simply not the answer. Whole foods must be introduced for this purpose. This audiobook will teach you how to sneak them (along with all their myriad health benefits) into your diet without really changing it in any way. Written by Eric Morrison, author of Gluten, Sugar, Starch: How to Free Yourself from the Food Addictions That Are Ravaging Your Health and Keeping You Fat - A Paleo Approach, this audiobook references approaches to better nutrition highlighted in that work, but creates an alternative plan for living better for those who have given up on changing the way they eat. Keep your bread, ice cream, and potato chips; just follow the plan and gain some health benefits along the way to make you feel better again. Breakthroughs in gut microbiota research are startling and have begun to identify gut health as the leading indicator of overall health. Cleaning the gut cleans every other part of the body it would seem. Billions of these microorganisms - some beneficial, some destructive - reside in your gut. In a healthy individual, there is a delicate interplay and balance between species of gut flora interacting in healthful symbiosis. When the gut is in distress, it becomes a harbor for disease and other maladies. This plan promotes introducing gut-friendly foods that are either probiotic, fermented, prebiotic, or nutrient dense in an effort to repopulate the gut with colonies of beneficial microbes and to lessen the incidence of disease by crowding out harmful strains of gut-dwelling bacteria. Eat better and feel good again without losing the foods you love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Morrison. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/104173/bk_acx0_104173_sample.mp3.
