The Ultimate Prescription (book review)

 . . . What the Medical Profession Isn’t Telling You. Are more prescriptions really the answer to our wide-spread health issues? “Take 2 and call me in the morning” just isn’t cutting it anymore.

Board-certified cardiologist Dr. James Marcum explains the biblical plan for spiritual and physical health that will help us feel energetic and beat stress naturally. I don’t know about you, but this fits in nicely with my New Year’s resolution to be more healthy and more natural.

Marcum reviews the 7 days of creation and then explains how each element (air, water, rest, etc) is necessary for our well being. That’s our ultimate prescription. Simple, yet complex in our modern-day lives. On the road of life, God is not a police officer; rather, he is our support team. Marcum says that God’s love and God’s directions will set us free from the stressors that can cause heart problems–and many other chronic health issues, I suspect.

Good and Easy Eats–Review & Give Away

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to eat more healthfully and more mindfully. And unless I miss my guess, I bet many of y’all made the same resolution. Kim Wilson, author of Good and Easy Eats, helps make this resolution a reality.

Allergies? No problem. The 70 included recipes are gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, soy, and yeast free. They’re also made with whole, plant-based natural foods. Fear not that these recipes taste disgusting, contain hard-to-find ingredients, or won’t pass the kid test. They’re affordable, yummy, and easy. Kim also includes information about a whole-foods diet, juicing, stocking your pantry, and introductory basics. 
Our family tried cinnamon raisin muffins, trail mix, and brownies and loved them! The only thing missing is nutrition information. I’d like to know how many grams of protein, carbs, and/or sugar (even if it’s natural!) are in each recipe. One of my major concerns with eating a vegetarian diet is getting enough protein and other nutrients.
