This is a really nice "cookbook". Not only does it contain lots of yummy recipes, but it is also full of nutritional and skincare tips, as well as lists of foods and ingredients and what they are good for. I love that it is seperated into seasons, with recipes containing ingredients that are easier to get your hands on for each corresponding season. I have only tried one recipe from it, a smoothie that we happened to already have most of the ingredients on hand, but I look forward to trying more! This seems to be a really nice book, and is also visually appealing with a nice hardcover in a pretty blush color with bronzy gold lettering! If you're into eating healhty, and/or are looking to improve your complexion through eating the right foods, I definitely recommend this book! I received a free copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.
I think most women want to have beautiful skin. We just don't know how to always get it. Many times, we change our soap or our external care, when we really need dietary changes to make a difference. Eat Beautiful by Wendy Rowe was written to help you nourish your skin both inside and out. To start with, Eat Beautiful is divided by the seasons. When Rowe lived in Paris for 4 years, she said she learned to eat with the seasons which made a big difference in how she looked at and felt. With in each seasonal chapter, there is information on ingredients representing each season, such as asparagus, leafy greens, radishes and spinach for spring. Each ingredient is described with nutritional information and how the ingredient could be beneficial to your skin and other aspects of your health. Following the ingredient descriptions within each seasonal chapter are various recipes that could be used for that season. All of the recipes have beautiful color photographs accompanying them. In the back of Eat Beautiful, Rowe has included recipes for do-it-yourself beauty treatments. Recipe examples include magnesium foot scrub and rosewater toner. Rowe then lists several skin conditions and offers advice on how you could help those conditions holistically. She also offers advice for taking care of your skin in the sun. Rowe then offers a section called, Nature's pharmacy where she lists various natural herbs that one could use to help skin conditions. The last small section is a guide to nutrients where Rowe lists how various nutrients help the body and also what foods would be the best sources of those nutrients. Eat Beautiful also has a nice, complete index to find things quickly that you are trying to reference. I think this is a great reference book for someone who wants to take care of the skin naturally and holistically. I can see pulling Eat Beautiful off my shelf and referencing it seasonally or when facing certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to care for their skin and their body holistically.Rowe stresses that diet, exercise, stress, and skin care all work together to make a difference in how your skin looks. I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
I am in love with being naturally beautiful! Forget that fake shield of makeup, which is wonderful to cover up imperfections, but once it's off of you still have to deal with the skin you have. Same goes for your hair, nails and pretty much the entire body inside and out! Therefore, one book I read this year of January has really made me super happy to be me by taking in what my body needs and leaving out what my body doesn't want and this book is called Eat Beautiful by Wendy Rowe! Of course, food is the major piece of what the body needs to look and feel it's best. That is exactly what you're going to learn about inside this book. You'll understand the bad foods that you should avoid, which some are very obvious after years of hearing what others say in their books and words of mouth from a doctor, but having it right in front of you and learning about not only the bad stuff but the good stuff, like fruits and other plant foods that help cleanse and detox the body as well as provide the nutrients one needs to keep the body healthy and attractive. I know the book might not say attractive or sexy, but this book is going to provide you with foods that won't make you feel embarrassed to go naked or wear nothing to cover your beautiful face-up. What this book is, well a recipe book of healthy nutrition for the body. However, it's more than just what to eat, but what it can do for the body and skin. For example, eggs are one of the good foods you need to have that beautiful healthy skin. It's packed with nutrition and honestly, I always eat eggs, pasture is best but I get natural/organic when I can. The main part that you need to eat is the yolk, don't remove them as they hold all the key vitamins for a healthy body. To me, they do resemble a bright golden/yellow sun with the white clouds and yolk being the sun which is perfect because like the sun they provide you with Vitamin D. Well, this is one food type you'll learn about, with all of the vitamins listed on the page for reference and there are so many others which are inside this book! Finally, I really love this book! It's so helpful and filled with more than recipes but information and ways to improve one's body and health forever!
