(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 05, 2023 ) Denver, CO and New York, NY Outskirts Pressthe fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing companyis pleased to announce the release of a new non-fiction book by Michelle Lawton. Moderating a Love Affair with Food offers a delightful take on embracing mindfulness while enjoying ones culinary journey. It is a practical guide for anyone looking to find a more healthy, sustainable relationship with food and drink.
Michelle Lawton is a longtime food and wine marketing professional and founder of brand consultancy joyfulplate. In a world where indulgence often meets temptation, many foodies struggle to balance their love of food and drink with their desire for a healthy lifestyle, and Im one of them, says Michelle. She describes the book as an easy-to-read survival guide for industry pros, food- and wine-obsessed foodies, or home cooks who adore food and drink but are looking for a little help with moderating.
Michelle wrote Moderating a Love Affair with Food with the intention of helping fellow foodies as well as herself. She started writing it post-pandemic in 2022 when her doctor told her to watch her health. Chapters cover everything from being aware of your blood-pressure (“Love Yourself Inside and Out”), wine appreciation (“Wine Tasting vs. Wine Binging”), eating mindfully (“Avoid ‘BIT’! (Because It’s There”) Eating, Healthy meal prep (Cooking Joyfully, Mindfully”), Eating when Travelling (Tasting Without Regret”) and more. Michelle shares tips on navigating the many tempting situations in which we find ourselves, as well as the expectations that others can put on us.
Michelle says its a quick, fun read, at times self-deprecating, at times serious. Its educational and entertaining, in the spirit of the 2004 international best-selling book French Women Dont Get Fat (teaching us to eat in small portions and less frequently) and the 2001 film Bridget Joness Diary (reminding us to count alcohol units) brought up to date for todays sober curious, self-care generation.
I believe that mindful eating and drinking is all about loving yourself enough to enjoy everything in balance, says Michelle. Its not about deprivation or strict dietsits about being aware of what youre putting into your body and how it affects you.
Michelle is receiving early acclaim for the book. Heres what one expert has said.
“Eating and drinking for a living for the last 30 years, I devoured the lessons of Michelle Lawton’s new book. Her strategies and tips for continuing to have food adventures while living more mindfully are valuable for anyone.
Dana Cowin: Founder. Speaking Broadly and former Editor in Chief Food & Wine Magazine.
