By Tammy Lakatos Shames, RD and Lyssie Lakatos, RD
If you’re bloated, stressed, tired, wrinkled, prone to heart disease or just famished—there’s a veggie for that, say sisters Tammy Lakatos Shames, RD, and Lyssie Lakatos, RD, aka The Nutrition Twins. For instance, if you want to take the edge off your hunger without ending up stuffed, the twins recommend vegetables “you can sink your teeth into, with a ‘meaty’ feel,” such as eggplants, mushrooms, beans and carrots. To help you jumpstart a healthy-eating routine, the book includes a 10-day menu and over 100 recipes. Glamour shots of produce will make you wonder why you ever preferred chocolate to chard.
