One of my favorite things to do in the winter is catch up on some reading. Snuggling up with a blanket and a good book is such a good stress reliever! I've got a list of books I'd like to read on nutrition, recommended by Dr. Blanchard of course. 

For many, winter can be the hardest time to eat healthy as we seek out comfort foods to replace sunshine and active summer days. So reading up on healthy foods and how to maintain good eating habits may help you stay on top of things this winter. On the flip side, maybe you're looking to make healthy changes in the upcoming year. If so, these are all great resources that will encourage you to take back your health!

1. Going Back to the Basics of Human Health — Mary Frost

2. Lick the Sugar Habit — Nancy Appleton

3. The Real Truth About Vitamins and Antioxidants — Judith DeCava

4. Birth without Violence—Frederick Leboyer M.D.
This is the best book I've read all year! Beautifully written chapters on the differences between natural and unnatural birth. I highly recommend this book to any expecting mother or any woman who wishes to have children. I bought the book to have on hand, being that I'm in child-bearing years, but you can also read most of it online for free here.

5. The Great Health Heist — Paul Rosen (

6. Protein Power—Dr. Michael Eades
I have a friend who is reading this book right now and he highly recommends it.
