Yesterday, we outlined the Netflix documentaries that will help kick-start your 2017 health resolutions. But for those who prefer to read their material rather than watch it, we've decided to outline the best health and wellness books of 2016, per Well+Good's newly released list. Not only were each of these three books best-sellers during the past year, but they also manage to approach health and wellness in a refreshing, motivating way. Pick up these three books now to get started on your health and wellness resolutions for the New Year:
Eat Complete by Drew Ramsey, MD
From Fifty Shades of Kale author, Dr. Drew Ramsey, Eat Complete is a cookbook filled with over 100 simple, delicious, and affordable recipes that are designed to improve brain health. A combination of scientific research and balanced recipes, Dr. Ramsey's book is both informative and practical.
Sweat Equity by Jason Kelly
Aside from serving as a source of workout motivation, Sweat Equity is an eye-opening and informative read about how running and exercising evolved into a multibillion-dollar industry. It will certainly give you something to think about as you clock miles on the treadmill come January.
Eat Pretty Every Day by Jolene Hart
It's no secret that what you put into your body influences your outward appearance. But with Jolene Hart's new book, you can take full control of this process. Organized by season, Eat Pretty contains recipes, simplified nutritional science, self-care exercises, and mealtime mantras for all 365 days of the year.
