My Review:
Ok, nobody likes to diet.  I mean really LIKES to "diet" especially me.  Eating Healthy is always a good plan, but can be expensive and difficult at times so I was really looking forward to having some healthier snack recipes and ideas when I chose this book for a review.  Well, I didn't realize that this isn't a cookbook of healthy snacks, but a story of the author's journey to making changes in her lifestyle and diet that helped her lose weight and keep it off. 

After she tried many well-known popular diets, Lisa Cain decided there had to be something she could do that would not only work, but keep working and make a difference.  In "Snack Girl to the Rescue" she explains how she makes little changes and looks at food a different way that really made a huge impact on her life and weight.

Some of the easiest tips to implement are:
put salad dressing on the side, not directly on the salad
don't have a bread or chip basket on the table
order grilled meats instead of friend
have a side salad instead of fries
and many many more!

Just those little things make a huge difference in eating habits and healthier attitudes towards food.  Don't be disappointed though, there are many recipes in the back of the book that are pretty simple and easy to make.  Some of her ideas are ones I will personally implement in my life to kick start my healthier me attitude and others just don't suit me personally.  This is a great book to have on hand for ideas of how to make healthier and better choices when eating at home or on the go.
