I LOVE this book :-) because it tells you exactly what you need to do to feel better about yourself, through food and vitamins!!!! I first found out about Rachel by stumbling across her second book, ‘Walking on Sunshine’, I was completely blown over. There in this hidden gem, are daily anecdotes that really inspired me to feel better. It was if the book had a magic potion attached to it. I would wake, my brain feeling rather cloudy, after some exercise, I would pick up the book and read it over breakfast. By the time I finished reading and eating, I was ready for a brand new day. I must also add that it helped me overcome a hugely challenging moment in my life.
Walking on Sunshine has this innate ability to make you feel like you are completely surrounded by love. Such is the power of the author. And because you know she had to go on this journey of healing, in order to lift out of the challenging moments she herself had faced, makes the read all the more worthwhile. It is this authenticity about the author that makes her such a compelling force. She writes from truth. Her truth. Her writing isn’t a fad, it’s honest, inspiring anecdotes, that Rachel had to find within herself, in order to survive. I feel so immensely proud that she not only found the strength to get through that time, but had the grace of heart to want to write and share these health giving tips, to us. In the hope that we would feel better about whatever situation we are facing.
Other cook books or medical books explain things in ways that always seem to leave me feeling confused. Where as in the “Happy Kitchen' the authors give you the ingredients and necessary information and then recap it at the end of the page, to make it understandable to 'dim wits' like myself. Not only did I find this an inspiring read, it has given me key insights into vitamins, minerals and foods that can help me live a more happier and balanced existence within the chaos of a city structure. It even has a chart detailing when fruits and vegetables are in season!!!!! It’s these simple things that can help us nurse our way back to optimum health. The recipes are Delicious, I haven’t done all of them yet!!!! But I have to say the chocolate brownies are the beeeesssttttttt!!!! :-)
The Happy Kitchen equals A Happy Life, for me anyway!!!! Genius is in the Simplicity. Thank you once again Rachel Kelly.
