I recently read a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful book by Dr. Joseph Mercola, Fat For Fuel. I’ll be writing more about it on my self help blog, including an upcoming book review. This book details the many ways healthy fats are good for our bodies as well as our minds.
I just noticed on Amazon that, in November, there’ll be a Fat For Fuel Cookbook…. I have every intention of pre-ordering this beauty!
