“If the recipe ingredients can’t go in a container and survive in a back pack or cooler on the beafch, they didn’t make it into this book”, say Beach Foodie book author CFayla Johnson. And these foods “provide excellent nutrition and have great taste”. These really attracted me to this book that I consider my guidebook for Joy, Bliss, Vitality, High Energy, Youthfulness and Spiritual Energy. Boy, we can’t allow our energies depleted in these trying times (you read them, you see them, you feel them). CFayla recommends a diet containing 20 % carbs, 30% good fat and 50 % protein — whole, unprocessed and uncooked for maximum nutritional values. And she adds:
1) Eat frequently, about 5 times a day, but small quantities.
2) Do not eat a large amount of food after 6 pm.
3) Listen to the body and rotate the foods you eat — some days more protein, or some days less carbs.
And to make skin feeling smooth and supple, CFayla says, “Spread 2 tablespoons coconut oil on your body, it’s nurturing, it’s hydrating”. Doing this every night before I go to bed — oh what a feeling! Recipes include Chilly Chili, Raw Apple Pie, No-bake Carrot Cake and Cherry Pie with Dates Crust. I love CFayla’s 3 Ms — Meals, Move and Meditation — let’s make it a plan, and let’s stick to it!
Here’s the press release shared to me…
