I'm writing a book! Actually it's already written and has been hanging out with my editor and the graphic artist since January. The inspiration started a couple years ago when I realized that most of my clients do not understand the importance of gut health and it's relation to their overall well being. Of course, if adults don't know this, then kids don't know it either. I did a little Google searching and Amazon searching and didn't find any kids books that addressed gut health or nutrition quite the way I wanted them too. As many of my fellow practitioners know, gut health is important for brain health, immune health, skin health, EVERYTHING health! What we eat as a kid affects our bodies not just then, but also as we grow older.
Mindy and the Good Gut Bugs is about a little mouse whose digestion is less than optimal thanks to her love of processed foods. Her good gut bugs (AKA: probiotics) are not healthy and she needs HELP! I'm hoping to have it published later this summer before Baby T. arrives.
If you know any dietitians, chiropractors, pediatricians, gastroenterologists, teachers, parents, anyone who might be interested, let them know Mindy and the Good Gut Bugs is coming!
I'm a dietitian with a passion for good nutrition, bold flavors, playing in the dirt, and being with my family.
