Book Review: Joy Bauer's Food Cures

Joy Bauer's Food Cures is a New York Times Best Seller
About a month and a half ago I thought someone was playing a prank on me, I received an email from The email expressed enthusiasm for my site. I was flipping out. Holy crap. I watch Joy Bauer on TV.  I adore the Today Show not just for Matt and Meredith (when she was on) but also for Joy.

So, back to that email...maybe not Joy herself ,but someone at her company  knows who I am. This is almost like the six degrees of Kevin Bacon, but healthier...this is the degrees of separation Joy Bauer style. The email asked me to review two books, one of them being Food Cures.

Funny, actually, I was planning on purchasing Food Cures for my migraines since there is a chapter on that. I had no idea that the book even touched on celiacs. I like how Food Cures breaks everything down simply for the reader to follow. Even though Joy is a Nutrition Expert, she does not overwhelm you or frighten you with terminology that one cannot follow. I also feel like her advice is easy to apply to everyday life. Her celiacs chapter was comprehensive and she knew what she was talking about. It is a good starter book for a person that has just been diagnosed and needs answers or a person that has celiacs with other issues, such as myself.
I am using Food Cures to treat my celiacs, migraines and also for weight loss.

I would highly recommend Food Cures to anyone in the Gluten Free community or anyone that just wants to improve their overall health.

Um, where did the fitness post go?

Well, have I been a slacker....yeah, technically I have been. I haven't wanted to recap because I haven't done much recapping. I have been sick. I have been losing weight but it has not been in a healthy way.

I have been to the Dr. a few times for my health issues and we will see what turns up. Anyway, thanks for reminding me to post new workouts....

My advice is to just rotate what I have already posted, switch up the times and the routines so you dont get used to it. Eat healthy and have fun wit it. Also, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

Happy 4th of July! I hope all of your awesome GF dreams come true today and you BBQ it up with some awesome GF buns...have you tried Udi's Hamburger or Hotdog buns yet? To die for! I know, that isn't what the Independence Day is about, it is about saving the world from Aliens..wait, no...that was a Will Smith movie.

Also, it is my anniversary with my non-gf bf! How I love him so!
