<p>From the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>SHRED </i>and <i>Blast the Sugar Out</i>, the ultimate guide to clean eating!</p><p>What is clean eating? In his newest diet book, Dr. Ian K. Smith teaches readers the benefits of clean eating and how to implement it in their own lives. He tells readers how to easily reduce unhealthy processed foods in their diets, a key to weight loss, disease prevention, and overall health. <i>The Clean 20</i> focuses on twenty clean foods--from avocado to whole wheat pasta and everything in between--that readers can easily find, prepare, and incorporate into their diets. <i>The Clean 20</i> includes a complete clean eating program with a daily meal plan, 60 recipes and substitutions, as well as 20 minute easy-to-work-in workouts.</p><p>Dr. Ian knows what works: it’s not eliminating food groups, but choosing foods <i>within </i>each group wisely to satisfy the palate and the body’s nutritional demands. <i>The Clean 20</i> isn’t just vegetables. Grains are in. And so is fruit, fat, meat and fish. When palate and nutrition are in sync, weight loss not only follows, it sticks. <i>The Clean 20</i> is a life and body changer.</p>

I have had an amazing transformation in my life by switching to a whole food plant-based diet. Eating this way has taken me from a hopeless addict that was over 400 pounds and almost immobile to a thriving, happy, and healthy athlete. My favorite part of this journey is that I have the privilege to help other people realize that this transformation is out there for anyone willing to take their health back. Change is a decision, nothing more.<br /> I have never had an interest in writing recipes or teaching cooking classes but I am realizing that is exactly what people need to get started with their own journeys.<br /> My recipes are about as simple as you can get with as few ingredients as possible. Life is too amazing to spend the day in the kitchen. I am writing these specifically to help people have easy recipes as they transition to a healthy plant-based lifestyle. My hope is that this will be a guide for someone to see how easy it is to eat simple, cheap, and tasty meals without becoming a chef. It's actually quite easy to make healthy meals on a budget and it's not as time consuming as people think.<br />I hope you enjoy my ideas and I hope they give you the confidence that you can start coming up with your own ideas and recipes that you love.<br />Here's a few of the recipes you will find:<br /> - Chicken Wing Hummus Dip<br /> - BBQ “Meat”Ballz<br /> - Quinoa Corn Fritters<br /> - Sloppy Toes<br /> - “Cheesy” Onion Tater Cubes<br /> - Veggie Burger Base<br /> - Peaches For Me Oats<br /> - Nannercakes<br /> - Eat Like A Peasant Feel Like A King Rice<br /> - Creamy Dill Dressing<br /> - Creamy Italian Dressing<br /> - Blueberry Muffins<br /> - Quinoa and Chunky Marinara<br /> - Smokey Santa Fe Green Topper<br /> - Kickin’ Sweet Hot and Smokey Sauce<br /> - Cashew Cheese Sauce<br /> - Snack Peas with a Punch<br /> - Crispy Tater Chips<br /> - Garden Gravy<br /> - Minestrone Soup<br /> - Smoky Cauliflower Chili<br /><br />The next book (Fat Man's Not So Fancy 40) will be out in July 2018 and is available for pre-order if you are interested.

<p><strong>From renowned cardiac surgeon and acclaimed author Dr. Steven R. Gundry, the companion cookbook to <em>New York Times</em> bestselling <em>The Plant Paradox</em>, offering 100 easy-to-follow recipes and four-color photos.</strong>  </p><p>In the <em>New York Times</em> bestseller <em>The Plant Paradox</em>, Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers to the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly healthy foods like tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and brown rice: a class of plant-based proteins called lectins. Many people are familiar with one of the most predominant lectins—a substance called gluten, which is found in wheat and other grains. But while cutting out the bread and going gluten-free is relatively straightforward, going lectin-free is no small task.</p><p>Now, in <em>The Plant Paradox Cookbook</em>, Dr. Gundry breaks down lectin-free eating step by step and shares one hundred of his favorite healthy recipes. Dr. Gundry will offer an overview of his <em>Plant Paradox</em> program and show readers how to overhaul their pantries and shopping lists to make delicious, simple, seasonal, lectin-free meals. He’ll also share his hacks for making high-lectin foods safe to eat, including methods like pressure-cooking grains and peeling and deseeding tomatoes.</p><p>With a quick-start program designed to boost weight loss and recipes for smoothies, breakfasts, main meals, snacks, and desserts, <em>The Plant Paradox Cookbook</em> will show readers of <em>The Plant Paradox</em>—and more—how delicious it can be to eat lectin-free. </p>

<p>INSTANT <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER<b></b><br /><b></b><br /><b>“One of the most important books I’ve ever read—an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.” – Bill Gates</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>“Hans Rosling tells the story of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But <i>Factfulness</i> does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.” <i>—</i>Melinda Gates<i></i></b><br /><b><i></i></b><br /><b><i>Factfulnes</i>s: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. </b></p><p>When asked simple questions about global trends—<i>what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty; why the world’s population is increasing; how many girls finish school</i>—we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.</p><p>In <i>Factfulness</i>, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators, Anna and Ola, offers <b>a radical new explanation of why this happens</b>. They reveal <b>the ten instincts that distort our perspective</b>—from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of <i>us</i> and <i>them</i>) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse). </p><p>Our problem is that we don’t know what we don’t know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases.</p><p><b>It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think.</b> That doesn’t mean there aren’t real concerns. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most. </p><p>Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, <b><i>Factfulness </i>is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future. </b></p><p>---</p><p>“This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance…Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing.

<p>Highly sensitive people—or <i>empaths</i>—see life through the eyes of compassion and caring. They were born that way. As a result, they carry a tremendous amount of inner light. But they’re also the favored prey of “vampires” who feed off empaths’ energy and disrupt their lives on every level—physical, emotional, and financial.</p><p>In <i>Dodging Energy Vampires</i>, Christiane Northrup, M.D., draws on the latest research in this exciting new field, along with stories from her global community and her own life, to explore the phenomenon of energy vampires and show us how we can spot them, dodge their tactics, and take back our <i>own</i> energy. You’ll delve into the dynamics of vampire-empath relationships and discover how vampires use others’ energy to fuel their own dysfunctional lives. Once you recognize the patterns of behavior that mark these relationships, you’ll be empowered to identify the vampires in <i>your</i> life too.</p><p>In these pages, Dr. Northrup opens up a toolbox full of techniques you can use to leave these harmful relationships behind; heal from the darkness they’ve cast over your mind, body, and spirit; and let your own light shine. In the end, you may find yourself healthier, happier, wealthier, and more vibrant than you ever believed possible.</p>

<b>Internationally renowned dermatologist and research scientist Dr. Whitney Bowe presents, for the first time, the connection between a healthy gut and radiant, clear skin, with a 21-day program to maximize skin health and beauty.</b><br /><br />Every year, nearly 80 million Americans will consult their doctors about their skin. In fact, skin disorders beat out anxiety, depression, back pain, and diabetes as the number one reason Americans see their doctors. Unfortunately, however, the vast majority will receive only a surface-level treatment, leaving the underlying conditions at the root of their skin issues unresolved. Skin doesn't lie; it reflects overall health in unimaginable ways.<br /><br /><i>In The Beauty of Dirty Skin</i>, internationally renowned dermatologist and scientist Dr. Whitney Bowe shows readers that skin health is much more than skin deep. As a pioneering researcher on the cutting edge of the gut-brain-skin axis, she explains how the spectrum of skin disorders -- from stubborn acne and rosacea to psoriasis, eczema, and premature wrinkling -- are manifestations of irregularities rooted in the gut. Lasers, scalpels, creams, and prescription pads alone will not guarantee the consistently healthy, glowing skin we all seek. Instead, Dr. Bowe focuses on the microbiome -- where trillions of microbes "speak" to your skin via the brain -- and highlights the connection between sleep, stress, diet, gastrointestinal health, and the health of your skin. <br /><br />With simple explanations of the science, do-it-yourself practical skincare strategies, and a life-changing 21-day program, <i>The Beauty of Dirty Skin</i> is your roadmap to great skin from the inside out and the outside in.<br /><br />

<b>#1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Dr. Mark Hyman sorts through the conflicting research on food to give us the skinny on what to eat.</b><br /> <br />Did you know that eating oatmeal actually isn't a healthy way to start the day? That milk doesn't build bones, and eggs aren't the devil?<br /><br />Even the most health conscious among us have a hard time figuring out what to eat in order to lose weight, stay fit, and improve our health. And who can blame us? When it comes to diet, there's so much changing and conflicting information flying around that it's impossible to know where to look for sound advice. And decades of misguided "common sense," food-industry lobbying, bad science, and corrupt food polices and guidelines have only deepened our crisis of nutritional confusion, leaving us overwhelmed and anxious when we head to the grocery store.<br /><br />Thankfully, bestselling author Dr. Mark Hyman is here to set the record straight. In <i>Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?</i> -- his most comprehensive book yet -- he takes a close look at every food group and explains what we've gotten wrong, revealing which foods nurture our health and which pose a threat. From grains to legumes, meat to dairy, fats to artificial sweeteners, and beyond, Dr. Hyman debunks misconceptions and breaks down the fascinating science in his signature accessible style. He also explains food's role as powerful medicine capable of reversing chronic disease and shows how our food system and policies impact the environment, the economy, social justice, and personal health, painting a holistic picture of growing, cooking, and eating food in ways that nourish our bodies and the earth while creating a healthy society. <br /><br />With myth-busting insights, easy-to-understand science, and delicious, wholesome recipes, <i>Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?</i> is a no-nonsense guide to achieving optimal weight and lifelong health.<br /><br />

Deena Kastor was a star youth runner with tremendous promise, yet her career almost ended after college, when her competitive method—run as hard as possible, for fear of losing—fostered a frustration and negativity and brought her to the brink of burnout. On the verge of quitting, she took a chance and moved to the high altitudes of Alamosa, Colorado, where legendary coach Joe Vigil had started the first professional distance-running team. There she encountered the idea that would transform her running career: the notion that changing her thinking—shaping her mind to be more encouraging, kind, and resilient—could make her faster than she’d ever imagined possible. Building a mind so strong would take years of effort and discipline, but it would propel Kastor to the pinnacle of running—to American records in every distance from the 5K to the marathon—and to the accomplishment of earning America’s first Olympic medal in the marathon in twenty years.<br /><br /><i>Let Your Mind Run</i> is a fascinating intimate look inside the mind of an elite athlete, a remarkable story of achievement, and an insightful primer on how the small steps of cultivating positivity can give anyone a competitive edge.
