Power Foods for the Brain: An Effective 3-Step Plan to Protect Your Mind and Strengthen Your Memory
Power Foods for the Brain: An Effective 3-Step Plan to Protect Your Mind and Strengthen Your Memory by Neal D. Barnard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Let me be honest. I didn’t read this word for word. I found myself overwhelmed with the science, and all. If you like to see why Dr. Barnard’s diet to reverse diabetes and protect your mind and memory then this is your book. I was already convinced by his more recent book about reversing diabetes: Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes Without Drugs. But this particular book is more about Alzheimer’s and other diseases of the brain, something I worry about because of grandmothers that died of that dreaded disease. So I took note and will be more aware metals that are in my diet. Luckily, I eat no meat or animal products (most of the time). I drink filtered water which should help.

There are recipes in the back for those who are so inclined.

Dr. Barnard keeps his explanations simple enough for the average person to get through. He puts enough personal stories to keep it relevant. And I believe in his scientific research.

This was a library Kindle book. I couldn’t afford to buy my own. I did buy the Reverse Diabetes one after the borrow as I believe I will refer back to that one more often. Yay, for raw foods!

Coconut Oil: How To Implement Coconut Oil In Your Diet For Weight Loss, Detox And Better Health (Coconut Oil Handbook
Coconut Oil: How To Implement Coconut Oil In Your Diet For Weight Loss, Detox And Better Health (Coconut Oil Handbook by Daniel Adam
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is mainly about the benefits of coconut oil. There are a few recipes including a way to use the oil in a cleanse diet. I doubt with my diabetes and fibromyalgia that I will do that fast, but I do feel encouraged to use the oil more often. I do already use it to cook my tofu and pour on GMO-free popcorn and, if I remember, I rub it into my skin or hair. I try to use only coconut oil an not other oils or spreads.

This is a quick read. I recommend it to anyone who is curious about coconut oil

Diabetes Diet Made Easy For Vegans: Proper Diabetes Management Using Vegan Recipes: Diabetes Diet Meal Plans, Recipes And Easy Lifestyle Guide by Dana Tebow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After reading about the author’s own medical needs I knew I had to read this book. It is mostly a cookbook, but the first part talks about how to adjust a vegan diet for those of us that are vegan and gluten-free. There were a couple times the author alludes to meat, wheat, fish and dairy, but that is only for those that might need to adjust to the more carnivore diets.

I didn’t try any of the recipes, but looking them over they look absolutely delicious! I would have loved even more recipes. Also, have you looked into the benefits of coconut oil? Anyway, keeping this available when I feel ready to cook! 🙂
