The Right Bite
The Right Bite puts the microscope to the foods we always seem to reach for when we’re in a hurry. More importantly than telling us to put down the muffin, author Jackie Lynch tells us why we should opt for some foods over others. Each chapter begins with a short introduction that outlines common pitfalls or misconceptions associated with the subject of that chapter, how they affect your body throughout the day, and why it’s important to avoid them. The rest of the chapter examines particular foods and the nutritional values, giving healthier alternatives. Focusing on calories, carbs, sugars, fat, fiber, and proteins, Lynch outlines the best and worst on-the-go go-to foods.
The Right Bite is an absolute essential for anyone who is constantly on the go, and wants to be more informed about what they’re eating. It’s a great resource whether your goal is just to eat healthier while away from home or to lose weight (clue: beware of the sugar), and it’s the perfect size to toss in your purse (or briefcase for the gentlemen) and take it along for the ride! One thing for a US audience to keep in mind is that this is a title from the UK, so some of the foods may be prepared differently than we are accustomed to, and this will affect the provided nutritional information in some cases.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
