Dog Ear Publishing releases “Beyond Everyday Eating: A Nutrition Guide to the Ghanaian Diet” by Dora Asare-Morrison.

Readers learn how to incorporate foods from across Ghana while staying healthy in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

You are what you eat. That’s a sentence that appears to have become ever more important as scientists explore the link between nutrition and good health. This new book details good eating habits and the crops found across Ghana and beyond, as well as featuring the nutritional content of foods and how to plan affordable meals that taste good and maintain health.

“Beyond Everyday Eating: A Nutrition Guide to the Ghanaian Diet” is written for Ghanaian residents, community leaders and healthcare professionals, aimed at satisfying a hunger for information about proper nutrition to stay healthy. The author writes that in Ghana, few people can have three healthy meals a day. Instead, most struggle to create one decent meal, a light breakfast and snack. Climate change affecting crop production and the expansion of urban sprawl into former farmland has reduced the amount of food produced and driven up prices. Creating healthy meals on a low budget becomes a matter of survival.

Author Dora Asare-Morrison, an experienced dietitian, gives a brief lesson on nutrition, followed by sections on food groups such as dairy, legumes, fruits, meats, vegetables and grains, as well as planning meals for specific times of day, snacks and healthy drinks. A glossary, easy-to-understand charts and reference list offer further resources for those who want to delve more deeply into this important topic.

Dora Asare-Morrison was raised in Ghana and has experience with cuisine from Nigeria, Sierra Leone and the United States. She earned a bachelor’s degree in clinical dietetics and nutrition from the University of Pittsburgh. Asare-Morrison has more than 20 years of clinical experience in acute care, sub-acute care and rehabilitation hospitals. She is a registered dietitian nutritionist, licenses dietitian in Texas, certified nutrition support dietitian and certified nutrition support clinician. She also has experience in intensive care, medical/surgical units, neurology intensive care and outpatient dialysis centers across the United States. Asare-Morrison serves as a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, affiliated with the Hunger and Environmental Nutrition Practice Group.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Play Day with Daddy” by Cheryl Kula.

A young girl and her father enjoy spending time together when her mother goes to work in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

When a young girl’s mother leaves for work Friday, it’s not cause for sadness because that’s the day the girl and her dad get to spend together. This new children’s book tells what happens during their day, from start to finish. The story ends at the best part of the day – when Mommy comes home and all three sit down at the dinner table to talk about what happened while they were apart.

“Play Day with Daddy” features typical activities for families: a pancake breakfast, foraging in the garden for fruits and vegetables, having a picnic lunch and reading stories about dragons and knights. It’s a fun way for the girl and her father to spend the day, as well as their cat, who insists on tagging along. Colorful cartoon illustrations by Karl Trolenberg fit perfectly with Cheryl Kula’s gentle rhyming story. The book’s easy prose works equally well as a read-aloud story or one children can tackle themselves.

This is the first children’s book for author Cheryl Kula, who has two daughters with her husband, Ted. They live in a mountainous area of West Virginia. Illustrator Karl Trolenberg, a graduate of the East Carolina School of Art, has worked in the arts for 17 years. He and his wife, Kathryn, have two sons. They live in Virginia.
