Super Foods Every Day
What a beautiful cookbook. This one may be hard to give away. I like to read/regift books (do you need shelves of already read books collecting dust in your home - filling up space and inhibiting others from enjoying them?), but this one may be too pretty and practical to share.
Sue Quinn has put together a collection of 65 recipes for optimal health - and all contain pictures of the ingredients and final dish. A brief introduction on Super Foods is followed by recipes for breakfast, soups/salads, side dishes, main dishes, baked goodies, and sweet things. I love the pictures of the ingredients and the final product (too many cookbooks are just words without pictures - I want to see what I'm getting myself in to). The only thing I would change is to have the ingredients listed in one column instead of paragraph style. I can't wait to dive in to Super Foods this year, clean up my diet, and maybe drop a few pounds/inches.
Thank you Sue and Blogging for Books for another review copy! Always a pleasure.
Instant Happy Journal by Karen Salmansohn
Sometimes just looking at something cute can make us happier. This book is cute – flipping through the pages, reading the myriad of happy ques – you can’t help but feel a little inspired, get ready for some introspection, and highlight the high points of you and your day. I like it – happy, happy, happy.
Karen Salmansohn is a woman after my own heart – human need directed, purposeful, creative spaces to think and write. A few minutes a day spent thinking positively and documenting it can lead to years of happiness. Each day I am going to choose a page I want to complete – out of order (crazy, huh?) – and write what comes to mind. Each page has at the top a short blurb telling you what to write/think about – some are pointed and many are vague. It’s your happiness – make it yours, write it down, be purposeful. I love this – thanks Karen Salmansohn & Blogging for Books for another great, free book to review.
