Surrounded by fast food chains, constant unhealthy quick fixes, and lack of experience in the kitchen can discourage people. This book helps abolish eating norms we think we should abide by in our everyday lives. The number one person of importance in your life is yourself, its vital you feed yourself the right fuel in the right ways. The 130 gluten-free, dairy free, and in many cases vegan free recipes help, promote, and even encourage a healthier lifestyle.


According to nutritionist Megan Telpner , she says it IS possible to feel your best while eating appetizing food.  The book is structured with a breakdown of the ingredients to use, prep, cook time, serving size, and even a tasteful picture to give you an idea of the finished product. Megan Telpner does a great job by simplifying these intimidating steps to a successful diet.

Love Your Liver!

One of the hardest working organs in the human body is the liver, so it should go without saying that everyone has their liver’s best interests in mind. But in the case that you don’t, or you’re just looking for some more guidance, The Liver Healing Diet offers plenty.

Dr. Michelle Lai and Asha R. Kasaraneni team up to answer the questions: what does the liver do, what happens when it can’t do what it’s supposed to, and how can you help your liver do everything it needs to do? According to them, “the liver performs more than 500 vital functions”. Buckle up. It’s a long ride that’s worth taking.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of the liver and its many functions complete with helpful diagrams and labels for those who haven’t taken a biology class since high school. It also identifies the most common health issues that plague the liver and how those illnesses present as symptoms (your body’s way of sending red flags).


The second part of the book delves into creating a lifestyle that is beneficial to both the liver and overall health. Step by step, Dr. Lai and Kasaraneni discuss detoxification, diet, and exercise. They even answer some of life’s biggest mysteries, as they explain how to read food labels and just what all those vitamins and minerals really do for you.

The manual of healthy liver comes with a collection of recipes that promote a healthy lifestyle. No meal or food group is left untouched and full recipes for every time of day are included.
“In essence, your liver is a processing plant, storage facility, filtering station, and productive factory, all rolled into one,” write Lai and Kasaraneni. It’s high time we all start treating the liver like the powerhouse it truly is.

Living the Mediterranean Diet Lifestyle

Inspired by the cuisines of Italy, Greece, the Middle East, and Northern Africa, Living the Mediterranean Diet incorporates the basics of healthy eating and the healthy way of life that you have always wanted.

Research has shown that the Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer, strokes risks, and much more thanks to its plant-based foods which improves fiber intake and boosts the quality of life.

With the healthy, creative recipes from Portland, Oregon, authors Nick Nigro and Bay Ewald, with the collaboration of award-winning and nutrition specialist, Rea Frey, you’ll enjoy foods full of cheerful colors and rich aromas such as Chicken Sausage Barley Risotto with Rapini and Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Peppered Swordfish with Warm Chive-Garlic Sauce, Spearmint-Pistachio Gelato, and more.

For decades, people have tried to lose weight by doing extreme diets that are not good for our bodies, but the Mediterranean diet goes beyond the boring calorie-counting. Living the Mediterranean Diet will teach you that everything it’s about being active and in balance. It’s about food making you healthy and happy.

“It is not a ‘diet’ in a traditional sense, but a lifestyle,” explains Nigro and Ewald. “It revolves around healthier, sustainable principles of eating and living.”

Your Body, Yoga-Body

In “The Yoga-Body Cleanse”, Robin Westen guides readers through a life-changing transition, eliminating the unhealthy choices many make on a daily basis.

The book begins with why “cleaning up your act” is necessary, and  what foods to avoid when cleansing your body. Ms. Westen also incorporates a survey into the book, allowing the reader to answer about fifty questions with Never, Occasionally and Frequently. At the end of the section, the reader tallies up their score and Westen provides them with an explanation of what their total means for their toxicity level.

The previous section builds up to the changing of the reader’s lifestyle which Westen begins with Ayurvedics. In short, these are principles that detox a person’s body and leave them feeling rejuvenated. She uses Ayurvedics along with the seven step program illustrated in the next chapter to prepare the reader for the “7-Day Yoga Body Cleanse”.

This “Cleanse” instructs the reader to diet intelligently, eating scrumptious foods with extremely beneficial vitamins and nutrients that strengthen the body and leave it satisfied. Using Yoga along with the dieting tools provided by Westen, the body will be relieved of toxins, endure less stress, and increase mental awareness and performance.

An excerpt from the book; “Partaking in the Yoga-Body Cleanse and renewing your precious self is not a one-time event….Once you’re aware of the toxicity and temptations, and you’ve gained the tools and commitment to change the way you live, a new and beautiful reality opens. Now you’re fully alive.” (Robin Westen)
