Recipes for Your Perfectly Imperfect Life by Kimberly Snyder, C.N. (Harmony, $19.99)……

It’s a simple philosophy.  Eat better, feel better.  Recipes for Your Perfectly Imperfect Life is a cookbook designed to help readers eat better and feel better.  Nutritionist, personal development expert, and New York Times bestselling author Kimberly Snyder pours her heart out in her new book in hopes of showing readers how they can thrive by eating those foods that enrich and transform.

The first half of Snyder’s book focuses on life lessons such as restoring self-worth, overcoming body shaming, and treating unhealthy relationships with food.  The second part of Recipes for Your Perfectly Imperfect Life is filled with delicious plant-based recipes from smoothies to entrees.  A few of the healthy offerings include:  chickpea stew with pistachio pesto, millet hash browns, spinach balls, all veggie lasagna, and fudgy, clean, blonde brownies.  Two of the tastiest recipes in the book are pistachio hempseed cucumber salad and cranberry cinnamon muffins.  The salad combines several flavors rarely enjoyed all together and the muffins are just plain scrumptious.    

Snyder maintains that how we eat can support healing on all levels.  All her recipes are designed to be cleansing and rejuvenating in various ways. 

Recipes for Your Perfectly Imperfect Life is a powerful guide to help us feel good, eat well, dispel insecurities, and increase our love of life.
