Bared to You…50 Shades of Grey LOOKOUT

Bared to You

Bared to You

A friend told me about this book and I started reading it at my local book store (so fortunate I still have one – book store that is). I got some glances my the workers and felt a bit strange. Apparently I was discovering something they already knew about. This book is a ridiculously sexy, erotic page turner. Everything 50 Shades of Grey was not, this is. There’s depth to the characters, you get to care about why Eva who constantly punishes herself with insecurity is attracted to Gideon. Yes there are plenty of obvious parallels here. The naive woman who keeps going for the unattainable rich guy, but the characters are reflective of real world personalities. That’s what brings this book home, in a big way.

Get it at Alibris right now. Comes highly recommended.

The Gluten Free Vegetarian Cookbook

Gluten Free Vegetarian Cookbook

Gluten Free Vegetarian Cookbook

About a month ago I did a double take while perusing the aisles of my health food store because I saw this book. At first I said, the sandwich on the cover looks great, but everything else probably tastes like you want some sort of meat product in it. Fast forward a month later and I could honestly say that aside from two Saturdays where I fell off the wagon and got a bacon cheeseburger (i’m human), I went 28 days without touching a formerly living thing. To top it all off by following the recipes as closely as I could, I removed gluten. Now the jury is out on how harmful gluten is to us non-celiac disease having folks, but the book’s gluten-free recipes were SUPER tasty.

The book covers snacks, desserts and full on meals of the vegetarian gluten-free variety. Alibris has it on sale now with the lowest price being $3.01. Get it here.

the-language-of-letting-go

the-language-of-letting-go

I’m not a big self-help anything. I don’t like reading it because some of the affirmations are filled with hollow platitudes that are appropo of nothing. They don’t help anyone but the person writing the book line their wallets, but this book is different. The Language of Letting Go has received over 500 five star review ratings on Amazon.com and on Alibris.com. This book is transformational. Melody Beattie, walks you through issues of codependency and paints a picture as to why letting go is so difficult. You know that 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 year relationship that’s going nowhere and you find no way out because you’re too scared to leave. Or how about the one that you don’t want to leave because there are no good alternatives it seems?

This book helps you see through those situations. It’s helped me and that’s why it comes highly recommended. Get it at Alibris.

The Perfect Metabolism Plan – Dieting without Dieting!

I’ve never been a proponent of dieting and let me tell you why. Dieting is always temporary and it almost always works in reverse, that is, you lose weight, then gain it all back times two. If you’re going to diet, why not just fast? But this book, “The Perfect Metabolism Plan” by Sara Vance is excellent for several reasons. Here you’re not going on any named diet, you’re literally changing your eating lifestyle. Your enabling your body to eat and process your foods like it should. She also provides sort of guidelines for having an optimal metabolism. I bought it and swear by it. Get the book on sale here at Alibris.

Performance Paleo Cookbook on Sale at Alibris

I can’t do the whole dieting thing. Never been able to, never will. It’s just not in me. In the U.S. there are over 1,000 different types of codified diets. The reason there are so many is not because they don’t work, it’s because most people go off of them. I guarantee you that if you stuck to any of the 1,000 diets out there you would lose weight. They key is sticking to it. We don’t have that time of willpower. Instead, though, this book goes through changing your lifestyle so that you don’t want to eat highly processed foods. Getting the urge and being discerning about your food choices is not only Thrifty, but it’s super smart. Some people call Paleo a diet, but I really believe it is a lifestyle. Find out more by getting this Paleo cookbook at Alibiris, now on sale.

Thug Kitchen Eat Like You Give a F*ck – My Favorite Book This Year

I made a concious decision to go vegetarian next year and this is the book I chose. I got it a couple of days ago from Alibris (I like you Amazon but you can be kinda harsh with your publishers sometimes). This book is replete with incredibly tasty recipes and NO MEAT. The other thing I was worried about was that eating this way would cost a lot. My weekly grocery bill is down about $35 since I’ve been using recipes from this book. It’s straight gangsta, yo. Sorry, was channeling my inner Tupac. It’s a great book though. Get it from Alibris.
