BLURB as on Goodreads

Traditional eating habits are a delicious roadmap to a happier, healthier, kinder you. Our ancestors have a lot to teach us about hearty eating habits that not only focus on health but also the pleasure that food can bring to our lives.

This book is an amalgamation of many of those old-school ideas that modern nutrition is now trying to catch up with. It is an enticing guide to inculcate time-tested food habits so we can develop a healthy lifestyle and even more importantly, rediscover the enjoyment of food.

My Review

The health is our primary concern and healthy eating habits are something we continuously look for to keep ourselves in proper shape. Our grandmas have been teaching us to eat healthy since our childhood. There are notions they say are right and effective and believed them to be mere myths. But in this book, the author attempts to busts some myths, provide scientific reasons for others, and suggest us, several amazing dietary habits.

The crisp and witty writing style makes for an interesting reading experience. Nowhere, you would feel that is very plain and monotonous teaching. Rather, the way the author uses her pen connects the reader to her work. One gets to know about the importance of fats, the vitality of fruits and nutritional value of the lentils. Practicing moderation is the best one must do to live a fulfilling life. Don’t discard sweets and fats. Just take them in balanced quantity. Another interesting point put by her is the necessity of incorporating good bacteria – probiotics – in our diet. And so, you would discover the reason behind putting green chilies and raw onion in your plate.

The author then goes forward talking about leading a healthy lifestyle by giving due importance to exercise, food, and proper seating arrangement for having your meal. Here, holistic living is the key! The very delightful thing one comes to know is the reason behind eating like our forefathers and eating according to the seasons. It all ends with the 30 amazing quick recipes.

I enjoyed reading the book because it was very smooth and light. One can get a lot of information in this small bunch of happiness which wouldn’t ask for a lot of your time. One interested in improving one’s health must definitely read it to get some expert and practical advice of a nutritionist on how to have a delicious and healthy meal.

MY RATING: 4/ 5
