Being awesomer…..with Joy McCarthy

In the spirit of trying to ‘be better’, I thought I’d share this book with you.  I actually know this woman and have been to several of her workshops/talks.  I’m sharing it with you because if you really want to make a change, this is a great place to start.  Should you not want to invest in the book, scroll down to the bottom of the post for website information, where Joy shares recipes and tips for better living.

Joyous Health is a fresh new approach to eating that will change the way you think about food and what you eat, offering a simple and practical path to creating a healthy lifestyle. Holistic nutritionist Joy McCarthy, creator of the popular blog Joyous Health, explains how to eat and live joyously with amazing results, both inside and out:

• improved digestion
• increased energy and zest for life
• sleeping like a baby
• glowing skin and shiny hair
• balanced hormones
• weight loss and increased libido
• lowered blood pressure and cholesterol
• feeling fabulous every day
Joyous Health celebrates eating delicious, clean whole foods. Featuring beautiful color photography, the book contains 80 recipes with pure ingredients and tasty combinations, including Carrot Cake Smoothie, Coconut Flour Banana Pancakes, Thai Beet Soup, Curry Chicken Burgers and Double Chocolate Gluten-Free Cookies.
I personally love this book-and I’ve done a 10-day detox with Joy (online) that was fantastic.  While some of her suggestions are a bit extreme, I’ve found that starting slow and making small changes has made a big difference in how I feel physically AND mentally.

Credit where credit is due…..a mention

For all of you complimenting me on my new blog layout, a huge MERCI!

That was the brainchild of my other (he would say “better”) half-with me behind the creative portion!

Not too shabby, eh?

p.s. I also love feedback so feel free to comment on things I am lacking or ideas/suggestions.  Thanks for reading!




Mini haul- Clinique

Gosh I can’t even remember the last time I have been to a Clinique counter.  I was kind of turned off ever since they started “cloning” Happy perfume, and I felt like they weren’t coming out with anything ‘new’ so why bother.
