NOURISHED, Truly Nourished!

I'm going to spend the next couple of posts bringing you two very important books that in my opinion, make great Christmas presents--for someone else, or just as importantly, for your personal Christmas wish list!

The first book, NOURISHED, A Cookbook for Health, Weight Loss and Metabolic Balance by Judy Barnes Baker has been an eye-opener. Many of you know I've been low carb for most of 14 years now (more on than off). I love this lifestyle and feel better when I faithfully follow my personalized plan than when I'm eating a SAD (Standard American Diet). I honestly thought I knew all there was to know about low carb. I thought I knew what each macronutrient brought to the table, the good fats, bad fats, the science behind low carb. I thought I could whip out a recipe for whatever we craved, whenever we wanted. I thought I didn't need to know anything else. But boy was I wrong!
