Local Author Publishes New Book: “Digested” Eating Healthier Made Easier 3 Ways

She’ll Be Selling and Signing Her New Book At The Healthy Planet Expo March 20 In Webster Groves

In February, local author Natalie Gensits delivered her first batch of healthier snacks to 240 students at Wilkinson Early Childhood Center. She is funding the snacks with proceeds from sales of her book about eating healthier in an effort to help activate healthier eating, too. She is working with City Greens Market and Gateway Garlic Urban Farm to secure such a large amount of organic sugar snap peas.

Gensits recently published Digested – eating healthier made easier 3 ways, a how-to guide embellished with personal stories. The book offers label explanations, food issues, shopping lists and three different levels of eating healthier based upon her experiences as an allergy-prone, working mom. Ongoing, she will donate a portion of proceeds to various organizations to help put healthier eating into action, too. Currently, she is donating proceeds to Wilkinson Early Childhood Center, where the staff is passionate about teaching kids to eat healthier and to get plenty of physical exercise.

“This healthy snack will be a great tie-in as we highlight First Lady Obama and her Let’s Move initiative during American Heart and Black History Month,” remarked Yvette Levy, Principal at Wilkinson ECC.

Gensits has also launched a supporting website and Facebook page for her book. Both provide helpful information about how to eat healthier and encourage kids to do the same.

“Everyday, my kids remind me that they are mirror images of their parents or caretakers – sometimes it makes me smile and other times it horrifies me,” comments Gensits. “They are so eager to learn. It seems like a huge mistake to let them grow up thinking we can eat whatever we want while allergies, hyperactivity and disease get more rampant. My book and website share my mistakes and lessons learned so others can take a shorter road to better health than I have.”

Digested relates especially to moms trying to juggle many tasks, but individuals of all ages can benefit from the suggestions and information in it. Gensits hopes to help other organizations educate and activate healthier eating through her book and contributions.
Digested – eating healthier made easier 3 ways was first published in late 2015 by Orange Goodness, LLC, owned by author Natalie (Bassett) Gensits. Wife and mother of two, Gensits works in the advertising industry and feels passionate about helping others eat healthier through education and action.
