The Couch Potato | Jory John
Pickpick

Published in 2020, this story became an immediate New York times best seller. This is a story about a young potato who only enjoys playing video games. When his power goes out he is forced to find something else to entertain him. He goes outside and gets to explore the world and find beauty in little things other than video games. He ends up enjoying it and says that he is going to continue to do this more often.

kallikramer I think this is a great story to read to children because in todays world many students go home and play video games in their free time instead of going out and exploring and playing. I think this story has a great message that all students should hear about how there is so much more to life than just video games. 2d

Overall it was an okay read, but it didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. This is not a guide on healthy eating as such but on avoiding fad diets, misleading headlines, & eating sensibly. Newcomers to the subject may find this a helpful 'beginner's read' or introduction to the subject of the Western view of food but it was written in 2015 so some of it will probably now be out of date. 2⭐

OutsmartYourShelf (Obviously there is a difference between those with a food allergy or something like Coeliac disease or Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity, & people who just cut out certain food groups due to media headlines. If you have CD, NCGS, or food allergies, then it is vital to eat the right diet & avoid food triggers which the author states.)

Audible brings Deepak Chopra to its members in the form of a podcast titled, Living Outside the Box: Mind Body Zone. There are 12 episodes and I like that I could listen to them in order, back to back. I love Deepak‘s work, so listening to him interact with his guests was a true pleasure. Each session had a guest unique to the topic. This series is well produced, interesting, and thought provoking.#MountTBR

Sick Day | Steven Banks

Yesterday when I woke up on the day of departure to go home from my Mexican vacation, I was feeling incredibly stuffed and not feeling well. Endured a 4 1/2 hour flight home, walking through YVR, going through customs, driving about an hour to my parents house before heading to bed. Today I‘m taking it really easy and resting at my parents place.

Well researched book that also includes the author‘s observations/experience from her years of clinical practice as an ob/gyn. Offers explanations and timeline for the menopause transition and potential therapies to treat symptoms interfering with quality of life.

A “kind” cookbook for #KindnessDay 🧡
One of many vegan cookbooks I own, I haven‘t made a lot of the recipes in it but the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are really good.

Here‘s a link to the recipe: https://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/2010/02/things-i-am-loving-this-week.html?m=...

Rambling & not very helpful.

The skinny: Don‘t be a butt to yourself. Exercise, meditate, do yoga.

Don‘t be morbid. Stop getting down on yourself.

Treat your depression.

Ta-da!!

You won‘t shrivel away like a 46 yr old prune bag in your neglected bottom refrigerator drawer.

Meh. Book felt aimed at people resisting/being coerced into vegan lifestyle. Lots of “miracle cure” type rhetoric at first. Then Barnard seems to want to sell the idea that plant-based eating is easy by giving examples of how to eat at restaurants/fast food places. Also promotes some things like vegan cookies or other junkier foods. Felt like book wasn‘t really a starter kit for the person who‘s already sold on vegan wanting to know more.

Soscha Ugh. I am vegan but that‘s entry level stuff, what Neal Bernard mostly does in his books. I‘m glad it‘s out there but if you know the arguments & want 💣 recipes that‘s not really the best go-to imo. 2w
DogMomIrene @Soscha Yeah! He has some recipes in the back, but they seem kind of meh too. Focused more on easy. I‘ve been getting vegan cookbooks from the library and I‘ve made some tasty stuff. I had high hopes for this book since I‘ve liked his perspective in the plant-based documentaries I‘ve watched, but I don‘t see me reading him again. 2w

I usually have at least 3 books on the go; 1 audio, 1 #sundaybuddyread and 1 random. Sometimes I have another small book on the go if my random is a chunkster. A favourite this year was Horse by Geraldine Brooks and I don‘t think I‘ve bailed on anything this year. Last book I bailed on was Let‘s Get Lost by Aldi Asaid sorry I‘m a day late

Eggs Thanks for joining in 📚🥳👍🏼 2w
