The Fire Driven Life

The Fire Driven LifeRecently I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). That means I need to make some major lifestyle changes in order to get my body back under control. When I was offered the chance to read The Fire Driven Life by Vanessa Chamberlin I was extremely excited! Though I am fairly early on in my journey with PCOS I need all the help I can get. The Fire Driven Life is a wonderful starter book for those who are looking to make changes in their diet and life. It’s full of facts about foods I never knew. I like how the first chapter educates you about food. The next chapter explains why you want to eat green-fire foods and the benefits you will get from them. I really like the charts showing me which fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, herbs and spices that fall into this category. The next chapters go on about the yellow-fire and red-fire foods. The charts really make it easy for me to understand which foods go in which list. And there is even a list for no-fire foods.

those secrets we keep

those secrets we keep

Since becoming a mom I rarely have time for myself, let alone time to really enjoy a book that is not about a cat or monkey and some crazy antics. For the past four years I have been consumed with those darn monkeys jumping on beds and trying to figure out why a giant red dog does not terrify the town’s people? But when I was approached to read Those Secrets We Keep by Emily Liebert I was excited to say yes. FINALLY a book for me! The cover really drew me in. There’s something about 3 women sitting with their backs to you looking out over the lake. It reminded me of one of my favorite tv shows that uses a similar staging. It instantly made me think of a juicy, fun and scandalous group of friends.
