Eating on the Run

Evelyn Tribole / Author Life Enhancement Publications $10.95 (

Tribole, a registered nutritionist, gears this book to the young professional who has little time to cook nutritious, healthy meals. She believes in making the most of adversity and comes up with inspired suggestions for snacking. Her theory is that a snack every two hours during the day will fulfill daily requirements for vitamins and nutrients from the four basic food groups. The snacks can be as simple as orange juice and a bagel or as interesting as curried chicken celery on pita. Tribole also discusses the pluses and minuses of fast food, advises on weight loss for people on the go, talks about disease prevention and offers hints on nutrition for athletes. (June)
