Format: Paperback
The skinny: Joy McCarthy, holistic nutritionist and healthy food expert for Steven and Chris, has published her first book.

The pros: The first half lays out some healthy eating solutions, talks about supplements, and give great health tips. Her recipes are quite simple, with not a lot of expensive or rare ingredients.

The cons: While I appreciate the recipes and health tips, I felt that this book is for someone who is just starting on a healthy path, which I chose almost a decade ago. (As such, it's an ideal gift for a college student living on their own for the first time.)

Rip out this page: Page 116, featuring a 10-day healthy-eating plan that's great for menu and grocery planning. It's a savvy way to stay on budget, and to keep yourself from reaching for that 3 p.m. bag of chips.

The aftertaste: If you're interested in getting healthy, ditching diets, and learning more about holistic eating, this book is a 10/10.

I was so excited to receive this stunning book. "Joyous Health" has turned out to be the perfect new year, new me addition to my life. I have been looking for a "lifestyle" book that offers both clean eating, healthy lifestyle tips as well as simple and yummy recipes that cater to someone who doesn't live around the corner from a 'specialty foods' shop. The recipes are not only easy to do (beet/goat cheese dip - yuuumm!!) but also deliciously nutritious! This combination is hard to find. Not only does Joy offer stunning pictures to go along with recipes, but she also gives nutritious tips, ideas and personal anecdotes. The ingredients are affordable and simple to incorporate into my grocery shopping list and as a Mom of 2 little ones, that makes a difference in so many ways. I can't wait to try more recipes and read further into the lifestyle section - which is page after page of information- written in a fun and engaging way. I highly reccommend this book to anyone who wants to make or continue to make that important healthy shift in their lives but in a gentle, uncomplicated way.

The first part of the book is all advice and where I think the value is. Some of the recipes look great, but are pretty unrealistic in my opinion. I bought the ingredients for a couple of recipes and it was over $100 for a single bag of groceries. There are a lot less expensive ways to eat healthy and organic!

I’ve fallen in love with this book, it’s bright colors, fun recipes and tips for living a healthy life style I just can’t seem to put it down. It’s truly inspiring!! My friends and I have all bought a copy and it’s always the topic of discuss, who’s whipped you what recipe and what to try next. My absolute favorite so far is the Chocolate Protein Square, simple delicious. I know exactly what in it and can say all the name of the ingredients, not like a protein bar off the shelf. Clean diet is so important, know what you’re eating! “Eat and Live Well Without Dieting” will guide you to eat clean. I consciously try to eat and live well, this book makes it fun and easy too. I now enjoy cooking and baking more than ever, since her book arrived I’m always in the kitchen. It’s more than just a book full of recipes, it’s an inspirations guide to living a healthy lifestyle, full of great tips and ideas.

I'm not sure what to think of the book. On the one hand there is a lot of useful information in the first half of the book that everyone can benefit from. And for that I would give the book 4 1/2 stars. However, when it comes to the recipes in the last part of the book, I wasn't that impressed. The recipes seem quite "fancy" and often call for ingredients that the average person just isn't going to buy, or simply can't afford to. That's not to say that the recipes don't look delicious -they do. I just don't think they are for everyone. Sadly, some of the people who could really benefit from the great health tips and recipes in this book simply would not be able to afford the ingredients necessary. I guess that's more of a comment on our society, rather than the book.

What do vitamin G, the music mineral, sleeping, gratitude, and hugs all have in common? (I know, I know, vitamin G is not a “real” vitamin, but I’ll get to that in a minute.) They’re all lifestyle habits that, according to Joy McCarthy, help to promote overall wellness. Through topics like gut health, detoxification, and foods, superfoods, supplements, and habits for joyous health, Joy encourages us to work our way through the book at a comfortable pace, making lifestyle adjustments for better health as we go. Sprinkled in amongst Joy’s light-hearted chapters are her joyous tips for health and real-life stories from her clients.

As someone who has a background in nutrition and food, I am most often drawn to these sections of books. In Joyous Health, however, it was this section on lifestyle habits, that fuelled some healthy inspiration in me. It wasn’t that the information that I learned was new, but rather that it reinforced beliefs that I already have and motivated me to continue on with some of the healthy habits I’ve developed. Here is a summary of Joy’s 5 Lifestyle Habits for Joyous Health:

Back to Vitamin G (G for greenspace). Vitamin G is the term used by the authors of “Your Brain on Nature” who advocate that a daily dose of nature helps us feel more relaxed, grounded, and rejuvenated. Joy elaborates on this concept and the idea of “forest bathing” (which, for the record, really just means spending time in a forest) and how it can decrease cortisol, blood pressure, and pulse rate and increase immune function. The idea of being connected to nature for more optimal health is certainly something that was discussed at-length in naturopathic school and it’s something that I can say, from lived experience, has tremendous benefits.
Get the music mineral!
