Hello, 2013. How I love the "fresh start" that you offer all of us! I read If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure last month and couldn't wait to implement Sheri Rose Shepherd's recipes and coaching tips into my life. Each chapter is written with personal stories and humor and the book includes over 100 delicious recipes! Craving more energy? Why not try Cajun Jumbo Shrimp Kebabs! Craving rest and relaxation during the cold winter months? How about making Corn Chowder and Healthy Corn Bread tonight. Sheri Rose is encouraging and real as she covers New Life recipes too. They are like a mini Bible study for your soul. A connection with the Lord. Often our spirit and faith needs to be nourished more than our bodies do. Right?
Not only did I enjoy Sheri's sense of humor, but I loved reading her personal stories. She was severely overweight as a teen (you can't tell from the cover- she is gorgeous!) but she managed to lose over 50 pounds and is here to tell the story. She has "walked the walk" and has earned the right to "talk the talk"! I lost 30 pounds last year and have no plans on ever finding them again, thank you very much. The yummy recipes in this book are proof that eating healthy can also be enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed the chapter Craving a Celebration, which showcased recipes for the holidays- when eating well is not always easy. Stuff Me Full Turkey, Veggie Pie and Pumpkin, Spice and Everything Nice Cookies- yes, please!
The chapter Craving Healthy Food to Satisfy Your Children was also a favorite of mine. Choco Sauce, Yum-Yum Nachos, and Healthy Chili Cheese Fries- oh, yes.:) There's also a chapter on romance for you and your sweetie pie. Valentine's Day is just around the corner.... Sheri Rose Shepherd has thought of everything!
If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure is an excellent tool to use in your quest for a healthier life. It will also inspire you in your walk with God. It's helping me to get a great start on 2013!
