Want to know how “Food Cures?” Joy Bauer knows (psst, it’s a giveaway).

**** August 12, 2011 Winner announcement:  #7 and #9 are the lucky winners!!!  Beth and Jessi, congratulations!!! I will follow up with you both for shipping arrangements.  THANK YOU to everyone who entered, I wish I had a copy for each one of you.  Your answers were inspiring to me.  ~Lyndi ***

Food has such a unique connection for every one of us. 

You might be someone who eats with reckless abandonment, drive-thru after drive-thru, knowing that one day it will catch up but for the meanwhile you ignore the guilt.  Mostly.


You might be someone who follows the latest diet book craze, always seeking a way to lose weight, feel great or stay young.  In fact, you may have done this so long that perhaps you feel like you’ve forgotten exactly how to eat. 


You know that eating the right foods will improve your life.  You are always on the lookout for learning more about eating well, living well, and staying in shape.

About a month ago I put an image on the sidebar of my blog that looks like this. 

Have you seen it?

If you click on it, it will take you to Jay Bauer’s site:  Food Cures

What is the Food Cures site? 

Basically, it is a information website that will give you answers on how to treat common health concerns and teach you how to “use food as nature’s medicine – without giving up your favorite meals and snacks.”

Who is Joy Bauer?

She is the nutrition expert for the Today show and, and monthly weight-loss columnist for SELF magazine.  You may have seen her on TV or read her books.

Why do I have an image in my sidebar?

Joy’s team contacted me about a month ago and asked if I would be interested in reviewing her Food Cures book and corresponding cookbook, Simple and Scrumptious.  After I checked out her site, I said yes… AND… I asked if they would be willing to provide the same to you in the form of a giveaway.

They said yes!

Interested in hearing about the giveaway?

Patience.  Patience.  Keep reading…

What is the Food Cures book about?

It includes easy-to-follow food prescriptions for treating common ailments like arthritis and IBS; reducing cholesterol and blood pressure; improving your skin and hair; managing chronic conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, celiac, migraines, PMS – and more!

For example, when I read it, it kick-started me back to what I already knew but had gotten away from: “keep your pantry and refrigerator stocked with healthy foods.”  Joy provides a list of the ultimate in healthy foods, lean protein, foods that count towards healthy fats, and high-quality starchy carbs.

See?  I wrote out my Food Cures list on my pantry door to guide me along the way!
