Generations ago, eating was much less complicated. We tended to shop more often at markets that provided fresh, locally produced foods. Families ate together, and most meals were cooked and eaten at home. Today, with the prevalence of packaged convenience foods and easy access to cheaper food in restaurants, our waistlines are expanding and our wellness is declining rapidly. In today’s high-speed culture, sensible human nutrition has been sidetracked by convenience foods and fad diets. Attempting to cut through the hype can be overwhelming for anyone, even when you have the best of intentions about adopting healthier eating habits and committing to long-term wellness. Fortunately, wellness expert Brett Blumenthal has created a straightforward diet and nutrition program to demystify the secrets of healthy eating once and for all. She identifies five simple principles, founded in fact, that can easily be applied in everyday life. Her "get real" toolkit outlines tips on establishing proper portion size, shopping smart at the grocery store, and making healthy substitutions in cooking, along with advice about exercise, hydration, and stress reduction. Hailed as "the ‘diet book’ for people who hate diet books", Get Real and Stop Dieting! will inspire, empower, and motivate you to live a healthier, happier life. 1. Language: English.

Here are some tips for going green in your daily routine. Some may be easy, while others may be more challenging. But if a change is made, your going green actions can leave a lasting impact on what our environment may be like in the future. Eat smart: Buy local and seasonal, or grow your own if you are able to do so. If you make a conscious effort to cook from scratch and use all your groceries while buying your seasonal vegetables and fruits at a farmer's markets, and buying your meats from the local butcher instead of shopping at a big named supermarket, you are actively taking a huge chunk out of your carbon footprint. Be conscious of what you buy: It's easy to overlook the amount of waste we create when we are not paying attention. Cutting down on purchasing large amounts of items with packaging if there are is a no package alternative while we make a conscious effort to recycle what we can will create a less cluttered lifestyle and influence the younger generation to follow the same style of consumerism that you do. Learn more or simple DIY skills: There are countless numbers of great websites to choose from that teach skills that save you money while helping you to go green. Learning new ways to build, make your own, or fix items that you would otherwise buy, saves money and saves landfills from more potential waste being loaded into them. In this audiobook, you'll find these and more profound insights into going green! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kym Krutz.
