Book Review: Everyday Detox by Megan Gilmore

With moving these past couple of months, I could feel the effects of the stress and eating things on the run. As a result, I wanted to get back into eating more healthfully. Everyday Detox by Megan Gilmore offers advice and recipes on eating healthfully to help your body feel better on a daily basis.

Megan Gilmore starts the book by sharing her story. She didn't start out being a healthy eater, but she says she did enjoy cooking. After years of diets, binging and unhealthy eating, Megan went to school and became a Nutritional Consultant. She shares that this book offers recipes developed with digestion mechanics in mind. She offers a basic plan for combining foods to help your body digest better. She also shares great advice on how to stock your kitchen with healthy essentials. A jump- start seven-day menu begins the recipe section. . .if you want to use it. She doesn't want you to get bogged down in the rules so much that you can't make the changes. Megan says you can make her plan work whether you are vegan, vegetarian, or a carnivore. 

The recipes include chapters on: liquid nourishment; Salads, sides and dressings; soups, sandwiches and wraps; casseroles and comfort food; sweet treats; and a chapter on the basics like marinara sauce and healthy coffee creamer. Many of the recipes are flanked by beautiful color pictures making all of the recipes look delicious. Lentil chili, cauliflower flatbread pizza(on the cover), go-to Greek salad, maple mustard glazed salmon and strawberry lime sorbet all look so yummy! I highly recommend this book for someone who wants to eat healthier on a daily basis with an emphasis on whole foods. I personally found most of the foods were easily available at our local grocery or food coop.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
