Book update

1.  I finally finished The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown!  I really enjoyed the book, although I am not a fan of his writing style.  This book was interesting and kept me wanting to read more.  If you want to read something with some history in it and suspense with a twist… this is the book for you.

2.  I also finished reading The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.  I absolutely loved her book!!! I am going to test out some of her recipes too.  Her book was exciting and liberating at times.  As I was reading it felt like I was sitting right next to her as she told me her story.  She was very enthusiastic throughout the entire book and made me think about some things.  I have to say, one part in the book really made me question if I wanted to eat red meat again!

“Our intestines tell a story, too.  A carnivore’s intestines are only about 6 feet long, because meat isn’t meant to hang out in the gut forever.  Our intestines are 20 feet long; when we eat meat, it teks a full 72 hours to pass through us.  That’s 3 days, and your body, my friend, is 98.6 degrees inside!  It’s like having a steak sit out in the hot sun for 3 days straight.  Eventually it will start to rot and putrefy.  And that’s what’s happening inside of you.”The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone Pg. 33

I have really enjoyed reading her blog as well.  It is and has a lot of information available to you.  If you are looking for something different to cook and an adventure in challenging your diet, I suggest you read her book.  Half of her book are recipes just for you to try and hopefully love.  I liked her style of writing because it felt like we were talking.
