Book Report, June 2012

  • Sweet Potato Power, Ashley Tudor. One part nutrition advice, one part self-experimentation, and one part recipe.
  • It Starts With Food, Dallas & Melissa Hartwig. Dallas & Melissa created the Whole30, a 30-day, Paleo-style, elimination challenge. Their philosophy is that the food you eat should make & keep you healthy. The goal of the Whole30 is to first remove all foods that tend to be problematic for the majority of people for 30 days, see how you feel afterwards, and then, if you want, experiment with adding foods back. This book provides all the science through easy-to-understand analogies and also provides plenty of reassurance and support for your Whole30 Challenge and beyond.
  • The Portrait of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde. I love Oscar Wilde, and I have no idea why I never read this before. Maybe I thought I already had, because I thought I knew the story? Well, turns out that I did not know the story, and that most of it was not terribly enjoyable (lots of talking and philosophizing).
