I am madly reading through these e-books, and time is short! It certainly sounds like a great deal – 30 e-books for $39, which is about £25 for those of us in the UK and approximately €30 in the rest of Europe.
I am very interested in what Matt Stone has to say, in his idiosyncratic style, in ‘Eating for Heat’ about salt and water consumption – it certainly made me sit up and think about what I do regarding hydration. I particularly liked his insistence that his book is to bring about awareness, and is not to be followed to the letter; instead, he advises, pay attention to how you feel in your body, and act accordingly. I was a little shocked(!) at some of the foods and drinks he mentioned, but these are not recommendations, just examples of what might be an improvement for some people. I suppose, when you’re changing your diet, it’s probably wise to move slowly into new habits. In fact, that is my own experience with starting to eat meat, it’s been a slow process.
Matt and Betsy Jabs’ ‘DIY Natural Household Cleaners’ is full of recipes for household cleaners that are non-toxic, environmentally friendly and cheaper than the chemical products many of us use. I did this switch a few years ago using a book I was given, and I’m very happy that I did, but my book omitted recipes for the dishwasher and washing machine, so I was very pleased to find some recipes in Matt and Betsy’s e-book. I’ll definitely be giving them a try. I liked the advice on adjusting the ingredients to suit the hardness of water, too.
‘The Eczema Cure’ by Emily Bartlett I found interesting – eczema is something we are familiar with in our household. I’ve been on quite a food journey regarding this alone and this e-book might have saved me trips down some dead ends had it been available a few years ago. Emily recommends nutrient dense foods, healthy fats and fermented foods and gives recipes for many of these foods. She also discusses the use of Chinese medicine for healing eczema.
I’ve ‘flicked’ through some of the recipe books too – ‘Indulge and Heal: 40 Treats Without Grains, Dairy, Nuts and Refined Sugar’ by Lauren Geersten, ‘Fast Paleo Top 100 of 2012’ by James Gregory and ‘Afternoon Tea: Grain, Nut, Dairy and Refined Sugar-Free’ by Suzanne Perazzini. These contain a wealth of tasty looking recipes. For me, using chocolate or coffee in baking is a no-no, but there are alternative flavours that I use instead, so they’re easily adapted.
I’ll review some more of the 30 over the weekend…
