Awesome books I am reading at Columbia
Child of Mine, by Ellyn Satter
A must read for any mother either thinking of getting pregnant, those that are, and those with small children. Child of Mine navigates skillfully the ardent task of introducing your children to food and teaching them to respect it.
Diabesity, by Francine R. Kaufman MD
Diabesity tells the story from the first hand perspective of being on the front lines of our American obesity epidemic. You will learn how we ended up in this mess and what we can do to stop it.
The End of Illness, by Dr. Agus
A must read. Dr. Agus has written a critical book on how we can prevent our bodies from “cancering”. There are many fantastic, and some controversial, takeaways from his findings.
Books by Tara Stiles (my yoga guide)
These two books written by Tara Stiles, Slim Calm Sexy Yoga and Yoga Cures go hand in hand. SCSY teaches the ease of yoga while her second book, Yoga Cures, evolves the conversation to how yoga can make positive impacts on your health. I can tell you first hand that she is, as Vanity Fair put it, “…the coolest yoga instructor ever.” Tara makes yoga approachable, easy, fun and open to everyone. I guarantee you’ll be practicing some poses before you even finish reading.
Food Rules & In Defense of Food, by Michael Pollan
The two books that inspire my eat habits are Michael Pollan’s Food Rules and In Defense of Food. They set the bar for how we think about food and it’s impact on us. Too often we forget the importance of food, and these are the two very best texts on the subject.
