GAPS cookbook
GAPS Introduction Diet Cookbook: 100 Del... GAPS Introduction Diet Cookbook: 100 Delicious & Nourishing Recipes for Stages 1 to 6 - Andre Parker

This cookbook is supposed to help people who are having to change their eating habits. While I would probably follow this if I was alone, it would not work in this family or house. Just like other diets, I have tried, having to cook 2 or 3 meals for every meal would make it an impossible task and would not be followed. If you do have to follow this diet, I would recommend the book.

The Nantucket Diet Murders - Virginia Rich

The Nantucket diet murders by Virginia Rich
Book starts out with her returning to the island and she finds her friends very thin and lacking in diet. Also some have died and she's on the trail of what is going on.
You are brought up to date about the womens past and their spouses and children as they all grow up around one another and spent many holidays together.
On their strolls they discuss architecture, widows finances, herbs that Tony is giving to others-it's an individual plan for each...
Like hearing all about the herbs and their combinations.
Recipes included at the end.
Received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

Good self-help book
The Joy Diet: 10 Daily Practices for a Happier Life - Martha N. Beck

A good self-help book which I could really have done with about 20 years ago when I started work. Now that i'm retired, it's less relevant but it contains a lot of very good advice about how to enjoy life more and put worries behind us. Recommended to all who feel that they're not getting the most out of life.

Mediterranean Diet: 250+ Heart Healthy Recipes & Desserts + 100 Mediterranean Diet Beginner’s Tips, Tools, & Resources. (Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, Lose Weight, Slow Aging, Fight Disease & Burn Fat by Kevin Hughes
Don't care for some of the discussions in this book as our nutritionist told us to limit our salt intake due to husband's heart attack. This book says Med diet is high in salt-I totally disagree with that.
I know what I can sprinkle on our food to make it healthy.
Recipes in this book do not have pictures. The nutritional information they do contain is different for each of the recipes, most will have protein, fat-not broken up into good and bad fats, carbs and calories. Each recipe has a title and servings and list of ingredients. When you have to use a can of beans and just rinse it off the brine is already in the beans, USE FRESH!
Some items I have no idea what they even are: tahini. Also has directions in how to make. Not all recipes even have nutritional information. Some of format is different for some of the recipes.
There are to me, a lot of useless information in the book. Introduction starts out with what the Mediterranean diet is and to check wtih your doctore first.
I totally disagree with having red wine at dinner. our doctor told us if you do not drink wine, don't start because of this diet. To us it's a new lifestyle as we combine exercise and sleep with the good diet.
Not sure if you really need to know about what kitchen utensils and appliances you should be using. Some of my appliances do the job of 6 other appliances.
There are listings of other sites online to check out along with apps to use.
Funny how it states to use low fat butter and other products but recipes don't use them as ingredients, they use real milk, etc.
We use low fat, low sodium and have no problems when the recipe calls for regular.
This book I could modify but it still doesn't list good and bad fats nor sodium which is what we are more interested in than calories or carbs. So lacking.
