I would say that I’m generally pretty balanced with my diet. I’ve never really been a huge eater in regards to portion size, but I really enjoying eating. I’ve always enjoyed foods that I like when I want them, but never liked the feeling of being overly full. I generally nibble at healthy options all throughout the day, and enjoy one big meal. I don’t follow a diet per-se, but I try to eat healthy most of the time. My husband is a chef, and I am HUGE lover of fine dine meals. I’m always excited by foods from different cultures, and I love gathering for a big meal with family and friends. I enjoy every type of food, and I’m not picky whatsoever. On a day to day basis, however, I eat for health and survival. It makes me feel happy when I know I’m feeding my body the proper fuel, so I’ve always tried to maintain a steady balance. I indulge when I desire, but I generally try to keep a healthy relationship and mindset about food.
Here are a few of my favorite healthy food books:
This book is chalked full of juicing recipes and healthy meals that will keep your body in an alkaline state.
I was recently introduced to this book, and I adore the tips in it. I love dry brushing, green smoothies, Pilates and stretching, and wonderful organic and healthy meals. This book guides you through a 4-day at- home cleanse. It’s not about crash dieting, it’s more about giving your body the fuel it actually needs to work properly.
Although I once was a vegetarian, I no longer am. I really do enjoy fish, chicken, and red meat on occasion. It’s pretty rare that I eat them. Fish I eat the most, chicken the second, and red meat on rare occasion. I personally believe that my body needs meat every once and a while, so that’s why I continue to eat it. The eat-clean diet includes some great recipes with chicken and fish, so I really like this book.
I have yet to fully commit to this cleanse, however I have heard nothing but amazing things about it. I won’t go into too much detail on here, but I would recommend you picking up the book and reading it through yourself. It’s only a few dollars, and it took me about an hour to read through the entire thing. This is the Master Cleanser “lemonade diet.” Obviously, it’s really important to speak with your doctor before partaking in any type of “cleanse.” Fasting cleanses have been around for centuries. They can be beneficial with proper application and doctor supervision. I plan to try this at some point soon.
The Perricone Prescription is one of my favorite books. This “diet” most aligns with my style of eating. Lots of green tea, blueberries, wild alaskan salmon, brown rice, and steamed veggies. YUM! It makes me hungry just thinking about it. I started this style of eating before my wedding in 2007. My skin was extremely clear and healthy as a result.
