IMG_5451I love to read. I have had my nose stuck in a book since I was 5 years old! I have a ton of them at my house and probably 1000’s have gone through my hands. I am going to list some of my favorite books of all time in no particular order.

Integrative Nutrition by Joshua Rosenthal- This was a great read. The author, Rosenthal, is a quirky guy, and has some great insights that he shares in his book. It reviews all the major dietary theories as well as touching on other aspects of life that affect our relationships with food.

Better Homes & Gardens Cook Book. I got this book as a gift from my grandmother-in-IMG_5450
law. Since I moved to the United States this lady was like a third grandmother to me. She passed away in January and we all miss her dearly. She gave this recipe book to me in November 1997 and every recipe comes out perfect. As the years have passed I had adapted the recipes I use to make them “cleaner”, and they still come out fabulous. Check out Kellie’s blog on clean eating for more information on this.

How to Make Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie. I read this book for the first time about 8 years ago. I could probably do with reading it again lol. A wealth of advice on how to handle people, make your self likeable to people and how to sell your ideas to people. A must read for anyone working with people.

The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. This novel is a masterpiece to me. It is probably my favorite story of all time. It’s a story of a boy who falls in love with a book as a child, and tracks down the book’s author, when he becomes an adult. A beautiful tale.

The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman. Another must read! It’s for anyone in any type of a relationship- spousal, sibling, parental. Chapman explains very clearly how each of us feels love from others in completely different ways. So if you feel loved by being hugged a ton, but your partner feels loved by hearing wonderful things about themselves, no amount of hugs will every replace a “wow, you’re the best!”!

IMG_5447Cooking with Mother- Ladybird Books. This is a child’s cooking book given to me by my mum on May 3rd, 1978. It has travelled all the way to Ca with me. I have memories of making the lady bird chocolate cake with my mother….. it was a little dry, but we gobbled it up none the less!!!

Let us know which books have influenced you. We always welcome great book recommendationsJ
