BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

I absolutely love to read. It’s calming, intriguing, and has been a favorite hobby of mine for a long time now. Since I’ve got a pretty large book collection, my goal is to share the specific ones I’ve read that align with the philosophy this food blog that shares healthy recipe ideas to inspire diet-free eating, proper nutrition and true health.  And since motherhood and religion are and will always be in my life, I’ve included books on faith, fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood that have helped me the past several years.
