The New York Times bestselling author of the Beauty Detox series, nutritionist, and personal development expert Kimberly Snyder offers us a powerful new guide to help us feel good, eat well, dispel insecurities, and increase our love of life.
Feeling good is not about having a picture-perfect life with a flawless body, job, and family. We can have those things and still feel deeply unhappy. Joy and true confidence come by finding a level of inner peace in our messy, perfectly imperfect lives.
In this beautiful, inspirational, and highly anticipated new book, Kimberly Snyder shares not only her amazing new food recipes but also practical tips for living a happy and fulfilling life. As Snyder teaches, the key is to live beyond labels, heal body shame, and move past self-judgment. By embracing life's ups and downs and learning to tune into our intuition, we can ultimately claim our right to feel good, just as we are.
With dozens of life lessons and more than 100 plant-based recipes for smoothies, soups, snacks, and entrées, Recipes for Your Perfectly Imperfect Life invites us to find inner peace and acceptance, and teaches us how a healthier mind and body can give us strength to thrive in all parts of our lives.
