This is a simple guide to using raw food as the basis of a new, healthy you. If you've read anything about raw food, you'll know that you are usually told to aim for 100% raw, spend money you haven't got on expensive raw food, and in the process become a social outcast. None of that is necessary. You can get all the benefits by following a simple, 50% raw food diet.

What Foods Should You Avoid?
Often it's what you leave out of your diet that matters more than what you include. Leave out these few foods and your body will love you for it.
Fed Up Of Complicated Raw Food Recipes?
This isn't a recipe book, but I've included a few simple, but delicious, ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. There's no need to buy expensive raw foods, and no need to spend hours in the kitchen. Just a few simple ideas to get you started.
This Book Is Short
I make no apologies for the fact that this book is fairly short. My aim is to give you the information you need without overwhelming you. When I started out I read many raw foods books and always ended up not knowing where to start. But this book tells you everything you need to know, in a simple and clear way. Follow the advice and look forward to a healthy future.
About The Author
A few years ago I was in the same position as you. I wanted to try a raw food diet, but found it too complicated and too time-consuming. On top of that it didn't do much for my social life, as I felt like I could never go out and enjoy myself with friends, because they only wanted to eat cooked food. But after some experimenting, I found what worked. And this is what I want to share with you.

Book Description Publication Date: February 12, 2013 50 Something Dates with 17 Mr. Wrongs represents an anthology of factual experiences and lessons from me— a single female graduate level professional, who has decided to be unwavering in my standards in the area of romance.
The primary purpose of the book is catharsis, using poetic justice and humor with the awareness that my experiences are not isolated from other females. The common thread that stitched the fabric that would eventually become 50 Something Dates with 17 Mr. Wrongs was: “men just don’t get it and women need to be more assertive in matters of the heart.”
The author does not present to be a dating expert nor is the book intended to be used as a Bible of sorts for dating, instead, it is an honest interpretation of dating mishaps, “raw and untainted by efforts to please everyone and offend no one.” Consequently, it is for:
“The girls who have been burned, broken and rejected in the noble efforts of taking risks and being hopeless romantics and; the men who just didn't get it...”

Book Description Publication Date: December 26, 2011 These 50-word stories are based on “found” texts from mainstream news sources and other public sites. Jaffe sculpts them to reveal their inner core, all niceties stripped away. Now the true Motives, fears and sins of our age are on display for all who care to see.
Amidst an internet-driven content boom, meaning has virtually disappeared. Anti-Twitter’s extreme brevity demonstrates by example that brief need not = dumbed-down. Though the stories describe a wide arc: high and pop culture, intimate and public, sordid and exalted, all subjects are equally laid bare by Jaffe’s incisive stratagems.

Book Description Publication Date: April 13, 2013 In late 2012 Pete Sortwell did something that no one has ever done before: he wrote a book entirely using spoof reviews of items on Amazon. Well, he actually wrote three books. Now, for the first time you can get all these books together in one boxed set for a lower price than buying all three separately.
Product description: The Village Idiot Reviews
Join Brian, as he tries to woo the girl that works in the local shop, will passing out face down in super glue while trying to make her a gift hinder his chances of getting her to go out with him?
Will Father Frederick, an alcoholic vicar who has a slight issue with stalking be able to win back the heart of a woman he loved a long time ago?
And will Ethel, who thinks that throwing hard rice instead of confetti in a Bride Groom's face is an acceptable form of sport, be able to catch whichever one of these two losers in love with her trick as they step out of the church on the happy day?
Written entirely in the form of product reviews, we guarantee you've never read a book quite like this before. Hilarious and wholly original, The Village Idiot Reviews pokes gentle fun at the more obscure corners of your favourite e-commerce sites - and introduces the most bonkers set of countryside dwellers since The Vicar of Dibley.
Product description: The Office Idiot Reviews
There are all sorts of idiots we have to work with every day. Every office has them. Fortunately for most of us idiots in the work place are few and far between. However, Hogsbottom Plugs, 'the home of bath plugs' has a higher concentrate than other work places, from the MD down to the cleaner, they're all Idiots.
Read the trails and tribulations of this idiotic workforce as they explain their recent life events through reviews of things they've brought. There's Donald, who try as hard as does simply cannot get the office junior to notice him, let alone drink some of his special, sleeping tablet ladened tea. Learn how Jeff, gets his own back on the people who mock him by re-enacted a video he saw on Youtube involving Seagulls and watch on in horror as the over-worked cleaner tries to solve the mystery of who is making his job of cleaning the toilets worse than a job cleaning toilets is already.
If you've ever worked in an office, then this is the book for you. You'll recognise the office sex pest, the liar and the moaning admin worker who's been there longer than the chairs. Written in the form of product reviews, The Office Idiot Reviews is the second in the series of 'Idiot Review' Books from Pete Sortwell.
Product description: The Idiot Government Reviews We've all seen the news over the last few years, watching in wonder and disbelief at the situations the people entrusted to run the country get themselves into and then proceed to lie their way out of. Just imagine, and this won't be hard, that they were so stupid that they wrote reviews of the items that got them into or out of their latest bit of trouble and posted them online.
Ted Williebond is angry, not only at having to settle for running the opposition, but also for the bullying he had to endure at school by Cameron Davies and Gary Osburn, who now run the Government and don't mind pointing that out to Ted every time they see him. Join Ted as he foolishly leaves reviews of such items as Silly String, vodka and thick curtains as he tries his hardest to bring down the coalition.
On the other side of the fence we've got Daniel Dangly, a foolhardy old school politician from Southamptonshire who, try as he might, cannot outrun the press, who seem to stalk him for easy stories; and Elouise Munch, a career girl more concerned about who's defaced her designer handbag than the people in her constituency.
Running the show though isn't Cameron Davies or Ted Williebond; in fact it is Betty Rivers, the CEO of Information Inc.

Many will ask: How I can get better sleep? How is my brain health improved (or hurt) by poor sleep? Is my depression and anxiety being caused by poor sleep? Do sleep problems cause weight gain?

Sleep Better for Brain Health provides a plan for an insomnia cure. As you begin to sleep better you improve your overall brain health. The book is designed to provide the reader with an insomnia solution rather than psychobabble and academic jargon.
Six basic principles are presented, which based upon research, have been shown to help most people with insomnia sleep better. For those needing professional help, the reader will be able to communicate their concerns more effectively to their healthcare provider.
A memory problem from poor sleep is often a result of sleep disorders and insomnia. Brain health can be seriously affected if sleep deprivation becomes persistent. We now know that anxiety, depression and other emotional disorders so common today can be caused by or made worse by sleep disorders.
Sleep Better for Brain Health is divided into sections to help the reader cure insomnia based upon their personal issues. A Quick Start Guide is presented in the beginning of the book to get the insomnia suffer started off right.

The author pledges to donate ALL the proceedings from the sale of this book to The Being Human Foundation (beinghumanonline.com), dedicated to education and healthcare of the under-privileged kids. He firmly believes that while our earnings show how we make a living, our contributions to the society show how we make a life.
A little about what this book is all about - For me, life had always been a game of choices. It is a game of perceptions that we draw everyday within our minds and their associated outlook. To some, life has always been "half-full" while to others; it has been "half-empty". Through this book, I can guarantee that one can easily solder wire the brain to look only for the "half-full" side that our life has to offer. It is not a book of DOs and DONTs, neither it is some kind of a rulebook nor does it unveil the secret recipe of "that" magic potion we had been searching for years.
The book, in reality, is a beautiful compilation of my personal and professional experiences and describes the various teachings that Life offered to me during all these years.
I was always taught that to become wise, you have to make decisions in the form of choices. If your choice is good, it will help you climb a step ahead on the life ladder. But if it backfires, then a unique opportunity is offered to un-learn and re-learn it in such a manner that makes you successful on its next application.
Life is not only stranger than we can imagine, it is more mysterious; one which is like a riddle wrapped in an enigma. Life is also the single-most complex phenomenon to understand after the human brain. Each of us has a unique life to live and each one of us deal with it even more uniquely making it almost impossible to have one size that fits all. However, the book would surely help us create a framework which can help all of us lead and live our life better, happily and blissfully.

This way, they can share expenses and parenting responsibilities.

With a cast of family and friends from Lucy’s Jewish aunts to Junior League neighbor, Candace, Tales From the Crib is the story of how one baby can bring people together – so they can drive each other nuts!
Essential Vegetables Box Set (4 Books in 1 Package): Organic Gardening with Tomatoes, Potatoes, Peppers, Eggplants, Broccoli, Cabbage, and More [Kindle Edition] R.J. Ruppenthal (Author) Essential-Vegetables-Books-Package-ebook
4.8 out of 5 stars (5 customer reviews)
Book Description Publication Date:January 13, 2013 This book is a bundled package containing four practical books on vegetable gardening. Together, they can help you grow over 30 different delicious organic vegetables in your home garden. These works are particularly helpful for beginning gardeners and anyone who has never grown these vegetables. They are appropriate for urban gardeners as well as others, since they cover both traditional gardening and container gardening for small spaces.
Each of these books is available separately, but this package gives you a discount on all four. The first book, How to Grow Potatoes, is one of my most popular gardening books. Everyone should grow these simple and delicious tubers in their yard, or in containers on their patio, doorstep, rooftop, balcony, or deck. I wrote Potatoes because there was a lack of good information out there on both traditional and innovative methods of spud growing. I saw some good books, but who really wants to pay $20 for a huge book about potatoes?
This book covers the basics of potato growing, walks you through all the information you need on selecting different types, proper soil, materials, planting, fertilization, watering, care, harvest, and storage. It also introduces you to some creative ideas for getting plants to produce more potatoes. Just the basics, no fluff, at a very low price people can afford.
Fast forward to the next book in this set, which is How to Grow Tomatoes, Peppers, and Eggplant. This is one of my newer books. Tomatoes are most peoples’ favorite homegrown gardening crop, and for good reason. Anyone who has tasted a homegrown tomato will tell you how much better it tastes than anything in the store. Peppers, including sweet peppers and spicy chili peppers, generally are recognized as the second most popular home food crop in the United States, Top 10 in the United Kingdom, and popular elsewhere also.
Why eggplants? As Asian and Italian gardeners will tell you, they’re really good when grown at home. As with tomatoes and peppers, the home organic gardener suddenly has access to dozens of different varieties of eggplants (hundreds, or maybe thousands in the case of tomatoes and peppers!). They are WAY yummier than the store-bought ones.
Tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants are all so closely related that their growing needs and habits are very similar. So once you learn to grow tomatoes, then you can pop in a few eggplant and pepper plants, treat them the same way, and they will reward you with lots of delicious organic vegetables. Once again, this book is a concise guide to growing these three veggies, leading you through proper site selection, planting them from seed or seedling, appropriate support from stakes, cages, or trellises, proper watering, fertilization, and care, and three advanced tips for pampering your plants into producing lots and lots of really good tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants. It’s all here.
Third in this set is my How to Grow Beans and Peas book. With the rising cost of food, more people need to learn how to grow some of their own protein. These wonderful legume plants provide you with a dirt cheap source of high quality protein and vegetables in both warm and cool season weather. Beans, peas, lentils, soybeans, mung beans, adzuki beans, cowpeas, limas, green (snap) beans, sugar snap peas, snow peas, runner beans, fava beans…they’re all in here.

Book Description Publication Date: July 21, 2011 "Fantastic read." "A heartwarming plot." "Terrific medical thriller."
"This story touched my heart. So worth reading."
"Was so interested in this autism novel that I decided not to take my sleeping meds so I could finish it last night. I reluctantly read the last page at 2 a.m. I didn't want it to end."
"Impossible to read the last chapter without a tear...or at least a lump in your throat."
"Special needs parents concerned with autism or Aspergers syndrome will cherish this book."
In an age (late 1960’s and early 1970’s) when charlatans and medical quacks reigned in the treatment of autism, and when “refrigerator mothers” were blamed for the disorder, Peggy Raintree, a courageous mother, refuses to believe the myth that she caused her son’s autism by rejecting him at the breast—so she sets out to find her own answers. But will she be prevented from using her creative, new ideas to reach her strange little boy? And will he ever be able to show her his true face?
Peggy deals with the pressures in her life with strength and grace, and even in her darkest moments never loses sight of her goals. She is not perfect, either as a parent or spouse, but she is warm, clear-thinking, and brave.
The incidences of autism have skyrocketed in the last twenty years. This novel dramatizes the struggle to understand this phenomenon. It explores the foolish medical myths of the last forty years as well as the roots of the promising new ideas that have helped hundreds of boys and girls with autism in recent years.
"Very few books have the power to make me weep, but the last scene with Billy made me bawl."
Book Description Publication Date: July 8, 2012 When David LaChapelle begins attending Carleton University everything seems to be going in the right direction. But he begins experiencing unexplainable changes in his thought processes which eventually devolves into a full-blown psychotic state. He tries to get help but is turned down, told by the admitting physician that he is fine and not in need of psychiatric care. Not until his family steps in and takes him to the hospital does he come close to receiving any treatment. While there, however, he meets Angela, a fellow patient he will later learn is also suffering from schizophrenia. For now, though, they will embark on a journey that takes them across Canada and beyond.
Beginning first with short trips in the greater Toronto area—including a jaunt to nearby Niagara Falls where a perceived zombie attack necessitates a forced and narrow escape, David and Angela eventually decide a trip to Vancouver is in order. Pawning possessions, selling stocks, sleeping in McDonald’s parking lots, and narrowly escaping arrest on a possible kidnapping charge, their escapades provide a rousing, rollicking ride as they traverse the Great White North until Dave finally receives the help he needs to heal and become healthy once more.
A whirlwind tour of Canada, New York, and the psychological inner workings of a paranoid schizophrenic intertwine with LaChapelle’s openness and bracing honesty to turn a frightening disease into a lighthearted, tragicomic romp full of action, hilarity, and more than a few surprises. As his mental state deteriorates, so too does the logic of the adventure, yet somehow he is able to keep it going, showing a resourcefulness not often expected of the mentally ill. A stirring, baffling, and altogether head-scratching caper, David’s Adventure with Schizophrenia is as fascinating as it is entertaining.
