4 Healthy Food Books That Are Actually Worth The Read

The start of a new year means the release of dozens of books telling you how to cleanse, exercise, and eat to make this year your healthiest year ever. There are plenty full of research and wisdom that will really help you get there, and there are lots focused on crazy claims that will never work.
We sorted through 2014's new healthy food books to bring you a few of the first group — from revamping your food philosophy to learning about a super healthy ingredient you may need more of. (The bogus diet ones that promised to make you skinny in 13 days while eating pizza and not working out at all? Those went in the recycling.)
Here are six new healthy food books that aren't about fads diets (listed in alphabetical order).
Whether you’re a green juice junkie, a SoulCycle addict, or just trying to maintain a working relationship with your skinny jeans, healthy living is always in style. So we’ve tapped the wellness masterminds at Well+Good — the go-to-site for cool, healthy-leaning women coast to coast — to keep you in-the-know.
