From the moment I received Winnie’s book, I knew it was love. What a sweet structure to help people make big changes in their lives, one simple task at a time.
My dad came to town a few weeks ago and he sat and read the book for an hour. He and I occasionally talk about sugars and safe substitutes, what’s most important to focus on for him (he has struggled with maintaining his weight loss), and this book is like a pocket reference for the talks we’ve had.
I want to buy this book for all the friends/family members who express making a change in their lives, fixing something that’s just not working for them. I really appreciate how it’s written and structured as a tangible thing someone can take away and reflect on each week (with 2 weeks off during the year). There are 50 two- to three-page chapters that feature research-based advice surrounding holistic health, wellness, and psyche promoting actions and changes you can make right now.
Winnie’s ideas are a great place to start in understanding all the conflicting research out there (much of which is big ag/industry-funded). The suggestions for changes are not presented in a judgmental fashion, but are meant to get you started and to help you make choices that work for you and your lifestyle. The thing about changes that have a lasting impact on your life is that you must start somewhere, one simple change.
Be sure to check out Winnie’s blog, Healthy Green Kitchen, for great, health-promoting recipes!
