5-Star Book Review: Alkaline Diet: Soup Recipes by Elena Garcia

51C48fSXXRL

 

Whether you’re looking for basic information about what an alkaline diet is or good soup recipes or a system to get your health back on track, we think you will be happy with the information in this book.
The recipes range between comfy old favorites like ginger carrot, minestrone, vegetable barley, and white bean and kale, to the unique green soup and farro chili.
Please note that you will not see food photos in the Kindle version. We don’t know if the print version includes photos or not.

Gina has followed the concept of the alkaline diet since she started studying at the Edison Institute of Nutrition in 2003, where she received her certificate in nutrition and Bachelor’s degree in Applied Nutrition in 2005. She worked in a day spa where the owner insisted that all nutrition plans follow the tenets of the alkaline diet, which taught her even more about the benefits.

From personal and professional experience, Gina can confirm that eating as recommended by the tenets of alkaline nutrition does make a difference for most of the clients she has coached. The why is simple: alkaline foods are mostly raw fruits and vegetables. If you increase the amount of raw fruits and vegetables in your daily life, you are greatly increasing your water intake, your enzyme intake, your fiber intake, your vitamin and mineral intake, and your antioxidant intake. There’s no mystery as to why that leads to helping you feel better.

Cooking does change the pH (potential hydrogen) of foods but following an alkaline diet does allow for cooking vegetables. Good news, you don’t have to go raw unless you want to!

This book will definitely get you started or add to your recipe collection. Enjoy!

5-Star Review: Keeping It Clean: A Do It Yourself Guide To Non-Toxic Housekeeping by Cyhndi Mora

41ypbRYLxGL

Having this book in my reference library is like a security blanket against any stain we can manage to make in our home!

The question I ask myself about any new book is, “What does this book have that I can’t get somewhere else. Like the all-searchable internet?” The answers to that with this book are many. That’s how I knew it was a must have.

Recipes for any cleaner I could possibly need to make! Excellent recipes, in fact. I’ve been using the multi-purpose cleaner for years. I’m excited to try a couple of new ones, too, like the toilet ring remedy and making my own laundry soap. DIY laundry soap has been on my wish list for years now, but the recipes I saw were too complicated. The one in “Keeping It Clean” is perfect for me because, as the book says, I probably already have the ingredients. Which I do!

Essential oil index for cleaning and other household tips. I love having this index at my fingertips!

Cleaning tips for every room in my house. I learned so much on my first read through of the book. I know I’ll be learning from this book for years to come.

Best of all? A fast way to see which of my cleaners should be replaced.

You are going to love saving money on your cleaners and customizing your scents!

I don’t know if a print version of the book is planned for the future, but for now it is only available on Kindle. If a print version becomes available it will be on my holiday gift-giving list.

At the risk of stating the obvious, I encourage anyone with an interest in non-toxic cleaning to have a copy of this book.
