Fresh air, singing birds, and showers are in the forecast. It's definitely Spring. I'd like to share some of my favorite books and magazines for the season that will motivate, keep you healthy, and help you with your Spring knitting project options.
First off, is Alecia Silverstones, the kind diet. Diet is used as a noun folks! ("a way of living, or thinking, a day's journey" as Alecia explains) It's delightfully written, has yummy recipes, great eco-friendly tips, and you will want to add more good foods to your meals immediately. She has a website, TheKindLife packed with help and information. One of the things I like most is that it's a fresh approach to the age old problem of encorporating the good foods and avoiding the bad stuff. There's no judgement - it's kind, afterall. Alecia has been on the journey for awhile and knows the ups and downs. It's a new season, new food options, energy for knitting, it's all good. You might also enjoy this months article in Natural Solutions where Alecia joyfully shares her enthusiasm for the earth, animals, and the journey to becoming healthy and vibrant. Hooray! You won't be able to read fast enough.
