Happy Monday, my friends! I spent the majority of this super rainy weekend reading, and I wanted to tell you about the book I couldn't put down plus two others on my radar.
1. The Light We Lost - I picked this up when I couldn't sleep and unfortunately (or not so?) I could not put it down! Next time I'll have to pick up the dictionary if I'm really looking to fall asleep. It's about a guy and a girl who meet in college, on September 11th. Their lives are brought together by the terrorist attacks, and they date and then break up, and stay in touch for over thirteen years. It's such a beautifully written story of complicated relationships that I think we can all relate to.
2. Vegetarianism Explained - This book, I predict, is going to be a best-seller. Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride is the doctor behind the GAPS book, which you've heard a ton about if you've been following YBC for a while. This book scientifically explains how the human body works, how animal and plant foods are digested and broken down in the body, and how we extract and absorb the nutrients. I would say it is an essential book for vegetarians/vegans to read to understand how to feed the body for optimal health. I was blown away when I read The Micronutrient Miracle and that one part that talks about how raw nuts actually deplete your body of various micronutrients, leaving you deficient, which triggers health issues. It's all so fascinating to me, and I'm excited to learn more. In that same vein, Carley and I will be leading a gut healing and yoga intensive weekend in Maine this June. We have one spot left, if you'd like to join!
3. Into the Water - Ok, moving away from health and wellness for a second, let's talk about Paula Hawkins' new book. You may recall the name because she's the author of Girl on the Train. Apparently it's another thriller that's tough to put down, and I'm always up for something like that.
Have you read anything interesting lately? I'd love to hear down in the comments section below!
