It’s that time of year again. Time to find that perfect gifts for family and friends or perhaps suggest something for yourself. Here are a few items that I’m quite fond of:

Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites has put out a great book that is half science and half cookbook. This book is filled with pictures, diagrams and methods to fine tune your nutrition. I had the opportunity to meet Diane when I was in Houston and let me tell you that she knows her stuff. Grab one for your friends and family but make sure to get a copy for yourself too!
