GIVEAWAY: Healthy Eats Here! Restaurant Guide

If you’re at all like me, you like it when other people cook. Don’t get me wrong, I *love* cooking, but after creating 3 Real Food meals a day for my entire family, it’s nice to take a break and eat out. But does that break really have to come at the cost of delicious, Real Food? Particularly on a special day like Valentine’s Day?

Holly Hickman believes it doesn’t. In her travel-intensive career, Holly spent years accumulating research on places to dine out that source their foods well. Recently, she compiled a killer dining guide to restaurants all across the U.S. You want restaurants sourcing humanely raised meats, organic vegetables, and foods from local farmers? Holly’s guide has them.

So, to help you celebrate your Valentine’s Day with an extra-special dinner out, I’m giving away one of Holly’s Healthy Eats Here! guides.

Holly’s guide features everything from burger joints to fine-dining restaurants in cities from California to Maine. There’s no other guide like it. Plus, the guide comes with free quarterly updates!

I’ve lived in the Austin, TX area for nearly 6 years and have been active in the local food community here for all that time. That said, Healthy Eats Here! introduced me to several new places to eat out that source real foods — restaurants I’d never noticed, but had passed on my way to various places.

My point? Holly’s guide is awesome! (And you never know just what you’re going to find out.)

So, if you’re at all like me and enjoy eating out every once in a while for a special break, OR if you’re like Holly and spend a lot of time traveling, THIS dining guide is your ticket to eating well while eating out.

    This is so exciting to see a book about healthy places to eat! I never go out to eat because my diet is so limited. It will be fun to see if there are any restaurants nearby that will be healthy and sustainable! I already follow your blog on my Yahoo RSS feeder (which is why I saw this so quickly!) Thanks for bringing this book to our attention!
