4.0 out of 5 stars Great holistic health tips! Jan. 28 2014
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Joyously Inspiring Book! Jan. 16 2014
By Kim B
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm feeling JOYOUS, you should too! Jan. 17 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic guide and recipe book April 19 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Joy's, following her on a few social media platforms, and love her book. Her writing is friendly and approachable, not at all preachy or militant. I've tried quite a few recipes in the book and have enjoyed them all! And have even finally mustered the courage to make my own hemp and almond milk! I thought I ate pretty well before (not a lot of processed foods, and virtually no junk food), but Joyous Health has helped me take it to the next level (without having to give up chocolate or wine!) and I truly notice the difference! Thank you Joy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing! Feb. 22 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I consider myself kind of a health nut and have read many wellness books, but never have I come across a book so comprehensive. This book does not just focus on food (although the recipes, especially the desserts, are to die for!) but it also provides recommendations for supplements, exercise, etc. I really loved it and each page was full of new information that was presented in a way that keeps you engaged. I have learned so much from this book and will recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspiring read + reference Jan. 15 2014
By carol
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I received my book a week ago and have already put it to full use. This is not a basic healthy eating book. It goes into great, but manageable detail, step-by-step on how to gradually improve your way of eating and day to day living. I know I will learn a lot over time from this book- I intend to keep it out in full view to reference daily. It is also one of the loveliest looking books I have seen- so pretty in style and extremely well planned out- a pleasure to use!

4.0 out of 5 stars Advice great, recipes not so great
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. Read more
