Review by Library Journal Review
Certified healthy lifestyle counselor and nutrition expert, Aldrich is also a “real mom” who loves food. She views eating as a sensual experience and, with Adamson (frequent Bethenny Frankel coauthor), presents her ten-week plan in an intimate, perky style. She refers to her readers as “girls,” which unfortunately implies that “real dads” are not invited. There are many good ideas here for changing to a more healthful diet. Chapters include “Get Naked with Raw Foods,” “Find Your Sweet Spot,” and “Taming the Food Cravings Dragon.” A number of recipes are included, such as the Green Smoothie (made with mixed greens or green meal powder) to start the day. Aldrich encourages readers to take care of themselves so they can take better care of their kids.
VERDICT As for “digital moms,” there seems to be a current market for books for “real moms.” A great choice for members of the “I don’t know how she does it” school; the many recipes and health information make this a good value for the price.—Barb Kundanis, Longmont P.L., Boulder, CO

Most of us love food. We spend a great deal of time planning, buying, and preparing it for ourselves and our families. We also spend a lot of time hearing about what we are doing wrong and how we can fix it. Eat this, not that. This is bad for you. This is better. Low salt. No salt. To go fat free, or not to go fat free. It gets downright overwhelming. It is no wonder that a lot of us have thrown a lot of the information out the window and have stuck with the foods with which we are comfortable. This is where Beth Aldrich comes in with her inspiring book Real Moms Love to Eat.
Aldrich has been there, done that- and she is here to help us figure out how to attain and maintain healthy eating habits. Real Moms starts by giving us ‘goals’ for each week, such as focusing on water intake or putting a veggie into every meal. Aldrich realizes and acknowledges the connections we have with certain foods. Her goal is not to deny those foods, but to moderate and incorporate them into a healthy diet. Also, by focusing on what one craves, she gives us healthy options to satisfy those craving in order to rewire our habits.
Real Moms is a book about incorporating whole food into real life. There is nothing that Aldrich suggests or teaches that cannot be implemented easily into daily life. The focus on whole foods is an important component in the groundwork for a healthy diet. With so many processed convenience foods in our busy lives, it is easy to give into the temptation for the sake of time. But, if we are not willing to feed ourselves how we should, how can we give our family healthy meals? The focus Aldrich gives to the importance of taking time for ourselves is something that is often overlooked when talking about family lifestyles- and moms deserve that focus as much, I not more, than anyone else.
Being a proponent of natural living and focusing on healthy choices, I found Real Moms to be a great resource. Even for those already implementing some of the advice given, it offers a great reminder as to the benefits and importance of maintaining the lifestyle. For those that feel that there is just not enough time, or it is too overwhelming to conquer, this is a great resource to prove otherwise. Real Moms Love to Eat is a resource for real women who like to have real fun with food.

Check it Out! As a mom I have to worry about what my family is eating and that they are eating well but as a mom, I don’t always worry about what I am eating. That leads to the inevitable weight gain because when not paying attention, I go for the things that are the least healthy for me. And now that my 11 year old daughter has announced that she wants to be a vegetarian, the pressure is on for me to learn some healthy tricks in the kitchen…
I am not much of a healthy eater and as I age am finding my tastes changing so I am enjoying trying some new things, especially things that can help me to see my kids grow up. That is one of the great things about Beth’s Book, she gives you real reasons to want to change the way you eat. Real Moms Love to Eat is divided up into three sections and includes a 10 part plan to help you change your lifestyle gradually for a lifelong commitment. There are recipes, tips and even exercises to help you along your journey to learning how to experience foods in a new way and enjoy them.
I love the humor Beth uses and that she uses a one on one concept that made me feel like she was talking right to me! I actually learned what some of the foods that I am eating are doing to my body and I see why my daughter wants to be a vegetarian!

I’ve read many diet books and magazines over the years in my quest to find optimal health and wellness. I would have success with some but mostly frustration at the crazy regimens I was expected to adopt (cut out all sugar and fat forever – really?) and the unrealistic expectations set (lose 10 pounds in 10 days – only to gain 20 back in the next month!). And then I came across the soon-to-be-released book, “Real Moms Love to Eat: How to Conduct a Love Affair with Food, Lose Weight and Feel Fabulous” (New American Library, a Penguin Books Imprint, January, 2012) by author, Beth Aldrich, Certified Health Counselor.
The book is broken down in three sections, which include a fun and easy-to-follow 10-part plan for moms to implement to make gradual, life-long changes in their approach to food and 21 days of meal suggestions, tips, recipes and lifestyle changes—all to help you continue your love affair with food to look fabulous. Beth’s approach to healthy eating is simple and realistic for busy moms. You’ll learn a lot about the food you eat and how it impacts your body and still have loads of fun experiencing new foods and enjoying your life.
It’s been such a treat reading this book and I’ve already begun implementing some of Beth’s suggestions. My husband and I can’t wait to start our day with her fabulous Green Smoothie. And I’m addicted to her Energy Kale Salad – I totally understand why she wanted to lick her plate the first time she ate it – it’s that good! These recipes along with so many other recommendations have me feeling better already and looking forward to how great I’ll feel after completing the plan.

I am so excited to finally be posting this review. I was going to wait another week but just couldn’t do it. Real Mom’s Love to Eat (or RMLTE as I will call it for the duration of this post) is not just for mom’s, but for anyone needing a lifestyle change (and a laugh!).
The author of RMLTE is Beth Aldrich. Beth, is a Healthy Lifestyle and Nutrition expert, an engaging speaker, media personality, and just an all around funny gal! RMLTE is both entertaining and educational. I learned things that I already knew! How? Because Beth explains things in a way that anyone can understand. Peppering the book with humor and insights, keeps the reader interested.
RMLTE is a 10 week process that eases you into a healthier lifestyle. You are not thrown into a 2 week “detox” or deprived of the things you love. You are taught why things are bad, other things are good, and how to be smarter about when and what you eat and drink. I read the book, cover to cover. I didn’t even plan on implementing it into my own life. I am inspired to change. I need to lose a large amount of weight and I know that I can do it.
This is NOT a diet. It is a lifestyle. You still have to want to make changes, or it won’t work. But with RMLTE you will learn to keep your love affair with food, but do so in a healthy way. You can not simply have a need to drop 10 pounds for that class reunion or to get into last year’s skinny jeans. If that is your desire, then this book is not for you. You have to get serious and be real about why you love food and why you are overweight. Deal with the ugly, personal, emotional stuff and then treat yourself and your body to health and well being.
Each week, you learn more about the benefits of whole foods and low glycemic eating. You take small steps to changing your thoughts about food and weight loss. Beth understands the love of food but teaches us how to truly be in love with food, enjoy it, and utilize it for more than comfort and superficial satisfaction. You won’t be on some fad bandwagon or overwhelmed to the point of quitting. You WILL, be inspired, entertained, and armed with the knowledge to change your life!
I am going to turn back to page one (1), and start this program myself. I am diabetic and have a host of other health issues, that are compounded by my excess weight, lack of exercise, and horrible eating habits. Follow along, and then join me when RMLTE is released in January. I want to LIVE!!!

First, I have to say that Beth is a vibrant, exhilarating writer. Before she sent me a copy of the book, I thought “I hope this isn’t just another cookbook”. I certainly wasn’t disappointed. The book is not only about recipes, it’s also about Beth, her family, and her love affair with food. We get insight into why Beth wrote the book, and why she cares so deeply about each and every one of us. She teaches us that it’s ok to love food, and we can still be healthy and happy while still indulging in the food we love.
This is definitely not your mother’s cookbook. It has fun-filled pages that not only teach you what you should eat, but why. Beth’s writing style is very fluid and entertaining, you can almost imagine her smiling as she put pen to paper. The advice that she gives is not pushy or rude, but she definitely gets her point across. I absolutely LOVE her whimsical stories, especially the one about the cupcakes ( you’ll have to read the book to find out what I mean ). I’m also excited to find out that I can still eat chocolate, actually…I’m required to eat chocolate! One of the recipes that I’m dying to try is Real Mom Peach-Blueberry Crumble, it sounds divine! Another is Pork Tenderloin with Apple Chutney. But first I need to get my husband on board with all of this, he’s definitely the cook in our house
I’ve actually read the book twice, yes twice! I feel invigorated every time I open the book to continue the food journey with Beth. One thing that I’ve found is that I’m learning new things the second time around. You don’t find that very often with books these days.

Fact: I need to eat better.
Fact: I want to eat better.
Fact: I make way to many excuses for why I don’t eat better.
There was a time when I really loved to cook. I think this was especially true during the first year I moved into my own house. I did all of my shopping–my trick for avoiding bad snack choices was simple–I didn’t buy them. This doesn’t mean I didn’t eat them, especially when going to my parents’ house–but I didn’t have them tempting me in my house. I ate good and I felt great–without working too hard, I dropped 3-4 sizes over about a year or two span. This was incredible for me, because I’d always been the same size since seventh grade no matter how much I tried to diet.
But I wasn’t dieting, and I wasn’t working out, I was just eating better. I loved food and I loved to cook too. I could spend an hour in Williams-Sonoma dreaming about new gourmet tools, drooling over their glossy colored recipe books and scheming excuses to make something new. I felt like I was destined for true culinary genius–and did I mention I felt great. I was fitting in to a new dress size for each major formal dance–which meant a regular rewarding shopping trip. I was finally able to have a selection of dresses that would fit to choose from–instead of settling for the lesser of two evils because it was all they had in my size.
I regret to report that whatever I was doing right faded away. It’s hard to define the exact moment when things definitively began to take a turn for the worse. I think it all started when I became involved with some poor influences. I started dating a guy who insisted on eating out regand cooking decadent foods–hello pumpkin ice cream. My job became super stressful–the return of the anxious eating habits. The school I worked for closed and the idiot dumped me–more self-loathing and pity eating.
I moved in to an uninspiring apartment with a galley kitchen. To make it worse–it was an hour drive to the nearest Williams-Sonoma (oh the humanity). I worked late nights and was too tired to cook when I came home. Then I became pregnant and nothing sounded good or tasted good except Popsicle. Since the baby, I have felt so drained when I get home from work that we settle for the over processed boxed foods…. Oh how this downward spiral compounded with baby fat I never lost has brought me back to that dreaded size I was back in seventh grade and all through high school and college.
I did love to eat–but now food is just something to fill the empty. I’ve been so uninspired. I think that’s why I’m pinning some hope on Beth Aldrich’s new book Real Moms Love to Eat How to Conduct Love Affair with Food, Lose Weight and Feel Fabulous. This isn’t some fly-by-night diet fad. It’s really about returning that spark in your food romance by learning to fall in love with the right foods and lifestyle that will treat you like the person you know you want to be.
Divided in three levels of intensity and organized by multiple week by week chapters–Real Moms doesn’t expect you to change your evil ways and poor choices overnight. Each week Aldrich presents five simple changes–one of which is often drink more water–so realistically, 4 changes you have to accomplish in a week. Four challenges aren’t much–following her method seems so doable. I love that she doesn’t ask you to give up the things you love most, but instead to make better choices. Some of her first weeks worth of activities ask you think about the foods you really love–again to reignite that love for good food. The final section of the book is chocked full of 21 menu days worth of really great sounding, really healthy foods. I’m starting to feel inspired.
I love that Aldrich really seems to speak my language. Her book reads like one girlfriend talking to another–or like a series of mom blog entries. Aldrich is very approachable, in a “Honey, I’ve been there too,” kind of style. Don’t get me wrong, she can be preachy enough to make her point–but not in a “holier-than though way,” which I find extremely comforting. I love that she understands where busy moms are coming from–and offers advice on how to streamline the kitchen, so you get “from scratch” meals–without starting completely from scratch each night. I think more than anything, her book reminds me of the way I have always wanted to live in my kitchen when I first bought my house and of that lifestyle I hope I can find a way to slowly return to.
For me, it’s going to have to be all about the small steps. We’ve been watching our budget so tightly for what feels like an eternity that the grocery store is a constant source of tension for me. When you are surviving on very limited funds (we’re talking 3 people on $40-75 weekly) every penny counts. I feel seriously guilty about food because bills are constantly what they are and grocery is about the only part of the budget that has some “discretion” to it. –I seriously had a breakdown the last time we all went as a family.
However, this weekend I visited my sister and peanut and I made a shopping trip to Whole Foods–and it was a truly pleasurable experience. The entire store is filled with great things that appeal to all of the sense–I could fall in love with food in a store like that. I bought the fixings for green smoothies–one of the first week challenges. I also bought several odds and ends (like unprocessed sea salt) that I’ve been meaning to try anyway. I bought whole flaxseed and used my sister’s grinder–now I think I need one of these too–(I’m excited about the kitchen again–that’s the power of this book!)
I need to quit making economic excuses for why I don’t eat well and just do it. I already do it for peanut, it’s time I do it for myself too. This is especially true for peanut–He’s ready for table food and he deserves better than hamburger helper and it’s beyond belief sodium levels. If we can throw money away on a week for two bags of snack chips, why am I depriving myself the ingredients for things that will make me feel better and look better in the long run?
So week one–I’m trying to make a green smoothie each morning. I’ll keep you posted on how that works out.

As a mom who loves to cook AND eat, with having had a dozen kids, I can always find the right reason for making an additional meal or extra snacks with kids coming and going and many celebrations from birthdays to new jobs, engagements, getting a license, first deer, etc. I’ve gone on numerous diets through the years, and it’s funny, when I am really dedicated to it, I realize how much that I snack and “try” foods throughout the day. I eat what the kids have leftover on their plates, I eat while I am making meals to sample it, I skip a meal, but am snacking on what I am making for the kid’s lunch, such as a spoonful of peanut butter or munching on potato chips. I eat the brownie or cookie dough as I’m making a special treat, and eat late night snacks with my husband when we are finally alone. I eat when I am stressed, especially chocolate. And, I just plain like food. I am slowly working on losing weight and have lost over 25 pounds in the last year, especially before my oldest son’s wedding. (My goal is as we marry off each child, I lose weight – gained it with each child, so sounds like the perfect reversal, huh?!?!). Yeah, I guess I am a real mom who loves to eat!
So, with our daughter’s upcoming spring wedding, more goals need to be set and more weight to be lost! What great timing with Beth Aldrich’s book, Real Moms Love to Eat, coming out January 3, 2012. I know crash diets don’t work. I’ve lost . . . and gained, lots more. I need to add in more permanent changes which is what this book shares, gradually making life-style changes that will last a life-time. The book gives 21 days of meal ideas along with recipes to help towards this goal. The author writes in a fun, conversational engaging way that keeps her readers attention. Several chapters definitely caught my attention: “Make Over Salt, Fat, and Sugar (Your Dysfunctional Friends)” and ”Tame the Food-cravings Dragon“. I need something realistic that keeps me on track with goals and it looks like Real Moms Love to Eat will give great encouragement to help me with my love affair with food.

Within the first few minutes of reading this book, I felt as if it had been written it just for me! (And I told Beth so) When reading Beth’s book, you will feel as though you are getting support, understanding and encouragement from a girlfriend. Beth understands and knows because she is one of us, she has experienced the same struggles with food. I think one of the best things we can do for ourselves and our families is educate ourselves about healthy eating.
This book was truly an answer to prayer. Fad diets are for the birds…I don’t want a 17 Day Diet…give me something tangible, something real, something that makes sense. Real Moms Love to Eat has realistically laid out a plan that is not only do-able but enjoyable!
Oh, and the recipes, my favorites are the raw lasagna and the raw oatmeal!!
Why is food such a crutch for so many women? We eat when we are happy, we eat when we are sad, we eat when we are bored, we eat when we are mad…I know I’m not Dr. Seuss, but it’s true! Beth helps us examine our relationship with food. My problem is that I do not enjoy my food when I should. I don’t like to eat breakfast, so I usually skip it. I don’t eat until lunch and end up eating the boys leftovers or find something quick that might not be very healthy. If I do not plan a nutritious meal…I usually will not eat one.
“He who fails to plan, plans to fail”
Lucky for us, Beth has laid out the perfect 3 step, 10 week plan to get us healthier, more knowledgeable and hopeful when it comes to eating healthy. Beth’s plan will teach you how to acquire a healthy relationship with food without feeling as though you are depriving yourself. Beth provides us with healthy alternatives through tasty recipes, snack ideas and yummo smoothies! Not to mention, the many great tips throughout the book that feed mind, body and soul!
I could go on and on about the reasons why I think every mom should have this book in hand, but I will let you see for yourself! If you pre-order Beth’s book right now, you can get this book for 32% off the regular price! For just $10.20 you can learn how to better manage your food, get healthy and be the example your family needs!

The thing I hate about diets is having to go from eating like a pig to starving myself! I always seem to be so hungry the first week that I end up giving up! I am really interested in reading this new book written by Beth Aldrich, Certified Health Counselor: Real Moms Love to Eat: How to Conduct a Love Affair with Food, Lose Weight and Feel Fabulous. This book, which is in three sections, has an easy plan for moms to follow. The changes are not drastic, instead you will make gradual changes that will last a life time. Also included is 21 days of meal suggestions as well as tips and recipes.
This book is marketed toward busy moms. We all know how difficult it is to cook healthy meals while having to drive kids to activities and be involved in our community. Beth understands that healthy eating needs to be simple and realistic to fit in the busy mom lifestyle. The book will teach you about food and the impact it has on your body.

Real Moms Love to Eat but don’t we?
This isn’t just a statement but a new book as well written by Beth Aldrich a real mom who isn’t afraid to admit she likes to eat and Certified Healthy Lifestyle-green living expert. The book’s focus is helping Busy moms learn: “How to conduct a love affair with food, lose Weight, and feel Fabulous” with a simple and realistic way to help implement gradual and lifelong eating changes. Broken down into 3 sections with a 10-part plan as well as tips, recipes and more.
When I first heard of this book I knew I had to read it. I was so intuiged by a gradual change rather than doing a complete 360 in one day and loved the fact it was directed toward busy moms. I received an advanced copy of the book to read and was not disappointed. The book is so easy to read and Beth keeps it interesting all the way through. As a busy mom with a full time job and 4 kids this is a plan that will be easy for me to follow. If you’re a Real Mom Who Love To Eat then you’ll love this book.
This review was submitted by Shooting Starchild blog
At first I was skeptical whether Beth Adlrich’s book Real Moms Love to Eat would apply to me. I don’t love to eat, and the byline “How to Conduct a Love Affair with Food, Lose Weight, and Feel Fabulous” includes the kind of phase that makes me turn off my attention; I don’t need to lose weight and for most off my life I’ve needed to gain weight. But when I scanned the table of contents I was impressed; all of the topics were sound principles of healthy eating. Beth sets her conversation about food in the context of having an affair – spicy, exciting, and enticing, but having an affair with your husband. She says “you know he’s good for you, so you bring back the joy, the excitement, the flavor of your first exciting encounters. You can trust him. Food isn’t a quick fix, a fling—it’s a marriage, but it can stay spicy forever.” Hmmm…. maybe this would be a good book for me! I have a good relationship with my husband, but not with food.
As I read the book I concluded that Beth’s approach is great for people on the lower end of the weight spectrum as well as those at the higher end, because among other topics Beth focuses on your relationship with food and provides exercises to help you get in touch with your inner child and food memories. Beth also talks about the importance of hormonal balance, how to work toward it, and how to make healthier food choices. Those choices don’t include “low-fat;” she encourages you to eat real food, not just real foods, but high quality real foods (in moderation).
These are just a few of the topics that Beth addresses. Her friendly best-girl-friend tone is easy to read and reminds you not to take things too seriously (except for the bit about the artificial sweetners). Each chapter is informative and encouraging, and Beth’s ten week program helps you implement good eating habits that you might not have down yet (like drinking more water).
This book is a must read for any woman* interested in being healthier or looking for more energy and balance in her life.

Beth Aldrich is a Mom after my own heart. She is sharing her vast knowledge of loving and living in a healthy relationship with food through her new book Real Moms Love to Eat. I received an e-version of this book a few months ago to review and I’m convinced that this woman is one smart cookie (pun intended.)
This book contains wholesome recipes, thoughtful advice for understanding a healthful way to eat, and quirky rules that will inspire you to take the right steps for your body. She gradually introduces you to her important concepts with 5 easy steps per week. The book not only teaches you why you should eat this way, but it also encourages you to explore and learn about how to create a diet you will love and your body will thank you for. Some of her key teachings are to drink more water, eat foods that generate the most energy, and avoid foods that don’t bring out the best in you. Did I mention that you have to eat a piece of chocolate every day? Yes, you have to!
I was happy to find that most of the rules were easy to adapt into my diet, especially since I’m already eating well for nursing. However, even I benefited from her suggestion to start each day with a smoothie. It gave me so much energy I was literally singing! I also love that she includes an entire meal plan in the book. There are so many delicious, healthy recipes you will never get bored! Plus, the meals are healthy for the entire family. Not only will you set a positive example for your kids, but you’ll actually be able to cook one delicious meal for everyone.
If you’re looking for a resource for your new year’s resolution- this is it. You will undoubtedly find health, wellness, and energy from reading this book and adapting the plan into your lifestyle. Cheers and happy eating!

When I read the title for this book, I knew I had to read it! Author Beth Aldrich offers a new approach to dieting, nutrition, and living a healthy lifestyle. In her book, she offers a 10-week program that makes little changes along the way to help you live a healthier, more balanced life in regards to food. I love that Beth understands firsthand what it’s like to be a busy mom, and what it’s like to love to eat! Real Moms Love to Eat ReviewDon’t we all? Yet so many dieting books are about depriving yourself of the foods you love, which just makes life miserable and honestly makes the diet doomed to fail. Beth suggests, on the other hand, that you CAN have the foods you love — just in moderation, and included in a diet that is centered around all the good-for-you foods your body needs to be healthy.
I like that her book takes the 10-week program in strides. When I think of a 10-week program, my first reaction is that is must be a crash course diet in which you starve yourself and try to lose as much weight in 10 weeks as possible, and then you go back to your normal lifestyle. Which of course is ridiculous (but let’s face it, we’ve all tried that at some point or another). Beth’s program is FAR from being a crash course diet however, and she makes little suggestions along the way that leads to a whole new lifestyle and way of eating and thinking about food. Each week you are presented with just 5 new things to do. For example, two of the things you are told to do in Week 6 are: “Try a new dessert made of fruit,” and, “Reserve sweet foods for only one time per day. Make it special!”Real Moms Love to Eat Review I like that the whole book is about making small baby steps that, several weeks down the road, get you to a much healthier (and slimmer!) place.
Beth also provides many healthy recipes in the book in a complete 3-week meal plan to get you on track with eating delicious food that helps you lose weight and feel fabulous. I love that the book isn’t about starving yourself or even depriving yourself, but rather it’s focused on falling in love with the right kinds of foods while still allowing yourself to have a treat now and then.
Overall, it’s a great book, really well written, and I enjoyed the fresh approach and found many of Beth’s suggestions very helpful!

I decided I would only make one resolution this year… to be healthy. None of that go on a crazy diet nonsense. None of that, “I’m going to the gym every single day of my life to sweat the stress and tears of frustration because I haven’t lost 1lb or fit into tinier jeans.”
Screw that. Seriously. Luckily, I received two wonderful books in the mail recently that have kept me to my goal, and will most likely keep me to my resolution for the entire year.
I’m a huge book reader and many times when I read a book, especially if it’s trying to motivate me to do something, I get sick and tired of the “You can do it” attitude and I throw up in my mouth a little before throwing that book right in the trash. Sound familiar?
I just don’t like that cheesy stuff. Makes me sick. Well, these books don’t have that. So if you need someone to pat you on the back and rub your tummy at the same time (no idea why that even makes sense) then stay away from the video and enjoy eating your leafy greens for every meal of the day… and good luck keeping that resolution!
Ooh, did I mention that in the first book I talk about you can actually enjoy EATING!? Oh yeah… now on to it! Watch the video!
So here are the two books I absolutely love and suggest you check out, if not invest in A.S.A.P.

Has it actually been a month since my last post? Shame on me! And so much has happened including a visit to Jilly’s Bakery in St. Louis where K was able to meet the winners of the Food Network’s 3rd Season of Cupcake Wars. But I digress….
A few months ago, during my stint with Oprah, I met this fabulous mom, Beth Aldrich, who totally turned me onto her method of enjoying food. She told me that she wrote a book about her experiences and advise and asked if I would be interested in learning more about it. Naturally, I said “YES!!” with the caveat that I had no intention of getting rid of my favorite foods in my diet. She assured me that getting rid of foods was not part of her plan. I decided to read on…
Fast forward a few months and Beth’s book has been published. I totally enjoyed reading and following her advice. She is currently on a book tour and I encourage you to stop by one of her events and take a look at her book, ask Beth questions and learn how Real Moms not only LOVE to Eat, but can still enjoy our favorite foods and fit into our skinny jeans.
