Lisa Cain, Ph.D., is a mother of 2 and loves food! An evolutionary biologist by training, she has become obsessed with how food contributes to our overall health.

For example, she is fascinated with the fact that Americans in the 1950’s weighed on average MUCH less than they do now. Obviously the root cause of the epidemic is what we eat, and she wants to help people make better decisions about what they eat.

She is a big proponent of food that doesn’t have any packaging and wants to help Americans eat more fruits and vegetables.

MY REVIEW

I absolutely love this book!!!
I have been on a weight-loss journey for over a year now to lose 100 pounds…(I’ve lost around 70 as of this review) and I’m always looking for new sources of information and inspiration. I am so thrilled to have discovered Snack Girl.
This book is a phenomenal resource…full of tips and recipes.
I love that Lisa shares her own personal story of health along with giving readers the low-down on all the good, bad and ugly methods out there (scary!)
This book is practical and applicable and well….edible!
It features tons of recipes to get you started on the road to great health.
I tried several of these recipes and they were all wonderful!
Some of my favorites were…
Revamped Chocolate Cake Mix Cupcakes
