  • The GLC

UPDATE: The books are gone! | It’s back-to-school time again, when all y’all college kids drink lots of beer and eat lots of bad food. If you want a fighting chance at staying healthy — at least through fall semester — try one of these books. ;-)

The first person to write in and request one of the books linked below gets it for free during our 9th Monthly GLC Book Giveaway of 2006. Limit one per person and you must request a specific book and send me your mailing address — although we won’t use your email or postal address for anything other than sending you the book. Email me for a free book while they last!

The Dorm Room Diet: The 8-Step Program for Creating a Healthy Lifestyle Plan That Really Works
“Daughter of bestselling cardiologist Mehmet Oz (You: The Owner’s Manual), the young Oz struggled with weight as a teen. Now a Princeton sophomore, she offers a range of advice for college girls hoping to sidestep the ‘Freshman 15.’ Those late-night study binges, tailgating and sports events, parties, TV watching and heavy talks can lead even clever Ivy Leaguers down the road to weight gain. No doubt inspired by her dad (who penned the introduction), Oz offers an eight-step program that advocates sensible, healthful eating, exercise and vitamin use. While warning against the pitfalls of high-calorie foods like alcohol, full-fat cheese and simple carbs, she okays coffee in moderation, bread dipped in olive oil, and chocolate. Balance is crucial, Oz notes, pointing out that one night of partying won’t spoil everything if it’s followed by healthy eating the next day.” — (List price: $16.95)

Student’s Go Vegan Cookbook: Over 135 Quick, Easy, Cheap, and Tasty Vegan Recipes
“In this practical, encouraging volume, Raymond demonstrates the ease, as well as the pleasures, of a diet free of animal-derived foods. The author of Student’s Vegetarian Cookbook offers helpful suggestions about stocking the vegan pantry — with whole grains, dairy-free milks, fresh fruits and vegetables, and meat substitutes such as tofu, seitan and tempeh — and notes that the staples of a vegan diet are low-fat, cholesterol-free and rich in fiber and nutrients. Recipes include dips, wraps, soups, pastas and desserts from a variety of cuisines. Crunchy Blueberry Pancakes are light and sweet, with a satisfying cornmeal crunch; Basic Baked Tofu, with its gingery, garlicky marinade, is anything but basic. Other winning dishes include the rich, almost meaty Shallot and Mushroom Gravy, the refreshing Millet Salad with Curry-Ginger Dressing, the fragrant Indonesian Tempeh Stew and the savory Caramelized Onion, Walnut and Sage Pizza. The recipes are homey, simple and quick.” — (List price: $13.95)
