Books:

My husband and I read the book “It Starts with Food” and have been on the Whole 30 plan for over 2 months. Whole 30 is an anti-inflammatory eating plan. My husband has lost 19 lbs, stopped snoring and the inflammation in his knee is so much better he has postponed a knee replacement surgery indefinitely! I recommend reading this book for several reasons; it is one of the few books that focuses on the affect food has on your brain, how food causes inflammation, and stresses the importance of eating mindfully instead of just shoveling food into your face with no regard to the consequences. It also give you a real food education!

Thanks for stopping in! I hope my ‘favorite things’ become some of your favorite things too! ~ Linda Spiker
