Real Moms Love to Eat...Review!

I am like 99.9% of women out there....I think about food more often than I would like to and often it is in a negative way.  I hate this about myself.  I am always on the hunt for the new, fad that will magically make being thin easy and quick all while I am stuffing chocolate cake in my mouth.  Reasonable, right?

As I mentioned, I love the idea of instant gratification with little or no work on my  part and I am not often inspired to actually make a life change.  Sad but true.  I recently have discovered a book that has made this lazy, cake loving mom rethink her ways and it is easy.  Seriously.  Real Moms Love to Eat has made this Mom a believer and I am not easily won over when it comes to things like this.  Here is what  has me having my cake AND eating it too (really!!)...

Let’s face it, you’re a Real Mom and like most moms, you love to eat. The problem is most of the time there is guilt and frustration surrounding our decisions to give in and eat the foods we enjoy, like weight gain, physical reactions to food and the could’a, would’a, should’a, syndrome.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with loving food; it’s the type of food you choose to love that is the problem. Like a torrid affair, you know it’s not good for you but having a love affair with your own husband is good for you, in fact, it’s great! You wouldn’t jeopardize your marriage for a one-night stand, so why would you do it to your own body with unhealthy food choices. The devastation is the same!
Real Moms Love to Eat was created with you in mind. It will lead you on a food journey of excitement, fun and new surprises, without pigeon-holing you into one eating style or another. Instead, you are free to experiment, get crazy and become more open-minded about the food you will soon discover. It’s a love affair like no other–with huge rewards of looking fabulous.
Real Moms Love to Eat will be your ONE source for tasty, fresh, whole food meals, creative recipes and food facts that will keep you looking fabulous and feeling energized and fulfilled.
With video recipes, TV clips, Real Moms on the radio, Food Flirt Friday (fun desserts or luscious surprises), Whine & Dine Wednesday (where we’ll answer your food questions or solve your kitchen inquiry or simply suggest a good bottle of wine), and Meal Planning Monday where recipes and nutritional solutions steal the show, we hope you’ll make Real Moms Love to Eat your regular go-to site for food, fun, healthy inspiration and a place where you are the star (we’ll feature your blog, recipe or food tip).
Let the eating begin!

This book speaks to me in a way other "diet" books never have.  Actually, I don't want to call this a diet book because it really is not.  This is a book about changing your lifestyle so you can have the things you love while still making healthy choices.  We moms want to make healthy choices so we can be the best we can be for our kiddos but we also want some fun (cake!) too.  Beth Aldrich shows you how to do this with weekly assignments (love this concept!) and fresh, easy to follow ideas.  As I was reading this I felt like I was chatting with a good friend.  Beth Aldrich IS a real mom so she knows the struggles and she knows how to address them.  I have been putting some of Beth's ideas to work and I already feel better...REALLY!  
Real Moms Love to Eat is coming out on January 3rd and I would HIGHLY recommend pre-ordering your copy now from Amazon...

Amazon has the book for just $10.20 which is a 32% discount and it is worth every single penny!  Be sure to check out to enter twice monthly drawings for great prizes as well.  I hope you all will check out this book and I hope some of you are as inspired as I have been.  Here's to healthier moms!
