Happy Tuesday! And welcome to another week of TOP TEN TUESDAY brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is food. Food and I have a special relationship. It’s sort of like this:
I love food. And I also hate food. And I spend far too much time wondering what food I should be eating and why I can’t stop eating certain foods. (Read: Cookies). So, books that involve food also have a special place in my heart. Here are a few I’ve read and some I need to get to…
Top Ten Books About Food
10. Like Water For Chocolate
9. Eat, Pray, Love
The Eat part was the only part of this book I liked. I’m not even sure it’s because of all the pasta. I think I just started to find her annoying after she stopped eating pasta.
8. Julie & Julia
The food was great. But I really didn’t like Amy Adams’s hair in the movie. But the food was great.
7. Playing For PIzza
I always enjoy a light John Grisham read. And I love pizza. I would certainly play for pizza. So I have no idea why I haven’t read this book yet.
6. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
I have already documented my love of cake and my love of lemon desserts. And yet still I have not read this.
5. Sweet Love
I know nothing about this book except for the fact that I almost reached into the computer and ate the cover when I saw it.
4. In Defense of Food
At first, I thought this was going to be a book about how cookies get a bad rap. Or how using bread as a vehicle for eating butter is nothing shameful. Well, it’s not. But I need to read it anyway because the grocery store and the food experts really do confuse me sometimes and I’m not actually sure what I can eat anymore. Is kale toxic yet?
3. Fast Food Nation
Like a car crash, I don’t want to look but I want to look. I don’t want to read this book (because I want to still be able to emotionally eat McDonald’s french fries without gagging), but I want to read this book.
2. The Man Who Ate Everything
Just the title alone suggests I’ve found my soulmate. But it sounds like a funny food journey that I’d like to read about.
1. OMG, That’s Paleo?
I’m so confused about whether I should eat Paleo or Keto or Vegan or gluten-free-ovo-lacto-vegetarian, but when I was set on Paleo, I bought this cookbook and it’s the best! It has yummy recipes that are so easy to make. I was pretty healthy during this time. And she has a blog, too. www.paleomg.com. I highly recommend both!
Any food books I should add to my TBR? Do you love food as much as I do? Does it confuse you, too? 🙂
