New Book Sneak Peek

How many times have you said to yourself that eating healthy doesn’t taste good, is too hard, expensive or time consuming?

I’m here to show you how eating better can be delicious, easy, inexpensive, and fast in my new book Lean Body, Smart Life: 12 Fix Plan to a Leaner, Healthier, Happier Life. 

My book takes the mystery out of how to live healthfully – by providing simple tips to help you know what, how, and when to eat.

You may be thinking, “What’s different about this book versus the other food, nutrition, and diet books out there?”

Tons!

The book includes a map to the 12 most important evidence-based steps or “Fixes” you can make for your weight and health. This book is the perfect mix of science and practical solutions to the struggles we all face when it comes to eating healthy.

Lean Body, Smart Life is coming soon! It will be available for purchase in both e-book and print version on August 25, 2017 and for pre-order now on this site.

Here is a sneak peek from Fix # 1 in the 12-Fix Lean Life Plan included in this book:

I‘m so excited about this book that I‘m giving away a free copy each week prior to the launch.  Just leave a comment below (or on Facebook) sharing why you’re ready to adopt the 12-Fix Lean Life Plan for a leaner, healthier, happier life.

    I am participating in the Daniel Plan at my church and have learned so much about eating non processed foods, exercise and living a healthy lifestyle. Everything tastes so much better and I am feeling better eating “good” foods now!

    Judes,
    Congratulations on your new book and website! I need your book. Do I have to give up Diet Coke?

      Thank you Linda! There are 12-Fixes in this book. If you adopt even one fix most of the time for life, your health and weight will improve. So it’s up to you on the diet coke. If you can drink plenty of water on top of the diet coke, you will still benefit.

    Hello! So Excited about your new book, Judith! I always am looking for new healthy, beautiful, delicious recipes to try on my family! They are good about trying new things and I am constantly looking for ways to improve our health through food, WITHOUT sacrificing flavor! YOU are a fantastic commercial for your own recipes/ “work,” because you are gorgeous and fit (a true product of your product, if that makes sense!) Can’t wait for the book to come out, but will try some of your website recipes while waiting!

      Wow! Thank you Nancy!! I’m a foodie first, so flavor is the most important to me too.

    Judes,
    Looking forward to adding your information to what we have been learning since June. By eating mostly all fresh/frozen fruits and vegetables and whole grains, beans as well as cutting out all sugar and processed foods, Don no longer takes cholesterol medication and after 3 months his cholesterol is 149 and both the LDL and HDL are well within the recommended levels. And his CRP was 0.57 which is awesome! He was taken off 3 of his 4 blood pressure medications because his BP dropped to 97/55 and although it is now a little higher than it should be, we are working on exercise and hopefully eliminating the remaining med. His blood sugars use to be way out of control and he was on Lantus twice a day and Humalog 3 times a day and now he is off Humalog completely and only takes Lantus once a day and he still drops low at least several times a week and he practically has no pancreas since he had pancreatitis in 2001. Looking forward to your awesome recipes we sampled at your book launch. Thanks so much!

      That’s wonderful Denise! Thanks for coming to my book launch. The book, Lean Body, Smart Life will give you even more guidance, practical tips, and lots of recipes too. SOunds like Don is on his way to better health!

Oyster October

"Les Poisson, les poisson, 'ow I looove les poisson!" That Little Mermaid song is dang funny even if it is somewhat macabre... October is National Seafood Month! If you're new to Foods with Judes, you will soon find out I have a great love for our underwater friends, both to protect and to eat! Seafood has extremely positive effects on our health and brain function. You can learn more about why this is true, in addition to other clarifying mercury tidbits in a previous article, "Seafood Newsflash." I could go on for days about health benefits of different kinds of seafood, but this month's healthy challenge will focus particularly on oysters. Don't worry - you don't have to eat them raw.

15-Minute Roasted Mexican Soup

I can't get enough of this 15-minute soup. It tastes like it been roasting for hours and it has, but by Trader Joe's and not by you! It’s quick and sooo good. You might be able to find these roasted veggies at other stores, but you will for sure find all the ingredients at Trader Joe's. It's a soup-er healthy, zippy, meal hack. This soup can be left chunky or blended smooth, either way it taste soup-perb. The blended version is perfect for those picky eaters who don't appreciate onions, bell peppers or black beans. Shhhh, they'll never know if you don't tell them. Top it with cheese, cilantro, avocados and/or tortilla chips or don’t add a thing to it. It’s a flexible meal using frozen ingredients that you can keep on hand and made on the spot.

Fairytale Eggplants

I'm enchanted by the beautiful baby eggplants I found at the farmer's market in downtown Durham a couple of days ago. In addition to being the most adorable things ever, they are called "fairytale eggplants!" Whoever magically shrunk them did us all a favor. They have tender skins and only a few seeds. They're sweet and firm without the mushiness and bitterness found in the mama-sized eggplants.  So for all of you who love eggplant and even those who don't, these ethereal fruits are for you.
