This book pleasantly surprised me, it was not all food related as I had expected it to be, although it does include lots of great valuable food and body information, it is also a focus on bringing a balance to all parts of your life so you feel 'whole' again and are achieving what you really want. I believe that things happen for a reason, fate, which is why the chance of reading this now happened when I totally needed it. If your looking for wellbeing and balance to your life in general, this is a great place to start.
The author prompts you to ask What one thing I can do for my health today? Through her own journey and experiences she shares a vast amount of important facts, sometimes eye openers, industry secrets, other principles and beliefs and things you had not even thought about. Explaining that we can achieve much more in the long run by doing change in small easy steps so we keep the motivation that we had in the beginning.
This was a very easy book to follow and understand, there was a nice tone with some humor to the writing with fun pictures throughout to extenuate the facts. I made notes of the facts I really wanted to focus on and I will definitely be reading and re-reading this over and over again as I continue to improve my own 'wellbeing'.
On the first food shopping trip with my husband while reading the book I was actively looking for more natural local grown food, comparing the number of ingredients in products (was there more than 5!!), pointing out all these to the husband and I found myself holding back from some of the items I would normally buy. I remember thinking as I was walking around the store to myself 'The author would be proud."
As the author says, "Put your heart into it and enjoy the ride!"
