Food Essentials for the Busy Professional: Dr. Lauren W. Powell’s New Book Celebrates The Art Of Healthy Eating

January 31st, 2019 Dr. Lauren W. Powell is back with a new bestseller. Her new book, Food Essentials for the Busy Professional, now available on, is geared to all those who wish to embrace healthier nutrition – yet have given up on the idea, deterred by the preconceived notion that doing so would be time- and resource-consuming.

“The purpose of Food Essentials for the Busy Professional is to demonstrate how living our best life can be more than just a 30-day plan, but rather a conscious decision that can carry us throughout our entire future” said Dr. Powell. “The book gives readers the comfort to start where they are; break the generational cycle of chronic illness, and embrace the joy of preparing and eating food that is nourishing, sustaining, and delicious.”

By combining the principles of medicine and culinary art; minimizing medical terminology, and presenting all health- and food-related issues in an easily digestible manner, Dr. Powell aims to help readers develop a better relationship with food. Dr. Powell provides easy-to-follow recipes, meal prepping schedules, practical travel tips, app suggestions, and highly-relatable real-life stories that aim to help guide readers in making positive and practical health decisions with regards to their nutrition, as well as adopt a sensible dietary plan, which would not make them feel deprived or overwhelmed.
