Self-Help Diet

Everyone knows that the best way to stay healthy is to eat healthy, but it isn't that easy of a thing to do all the time.

Author and food blogger Tina Haupert shares her solution to the dilemma of how to stay healthy and still enjoy food in her book, CARROTS AND CAKE: Healthy Living One Carrot and One Cupcake At A Time.

Haupert is the whirlwind force behind the popular blog, carrotsncake.com. Begun as a food diary, Haupert's blog has evolved into a platform for healthy living that she further expands upon in her book.

This book is a collection of what Haupert considers to be the best practices for making a change to a life of healthy choices. Written in a light, humorous manner, Haupert relays to her readers that although she strives to achieve her goals of living healthy, even she has her good days and bad, and that is refreshing. Who hasn't been tempted to eat 5 fresh luscious muffins in one sitting at one time or another?

Haupert shares her organizational suggestions on arranging food -- keep the healthy stuff handy and up front; make the junk food harder to find! And the recipes included at the end of each chapter are mouthwatering in description, and fairly easy to recreate.

The only drawback to this enchanting book is that it seems to be aimed to a younger, more hip demographic. Not everyone indulges in happy hours before going out for a big night on the town, some of us are lucky to be able to slump in front of the TV after a long day. But CARROTS AND CAKE is a great motivational book for giving ideas on how to strive to be better. Maybe happy hours could be in the future someday?
