In celebration of World Health Day, Goodness has rounded up the top three books to inspire you to embark on a healthier lifestyle. Whether you’re worried about eating right and cleaning up your diet or about aging gracefully, these three titles will help you feel like a happier, healthier version of yourself in no time.
To Eat Right
After being diagnosed with the rare illness Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, healthy hipster Ella Woodward (a.k.a. Deliciously Ella) embarked on a personal health journey by completely changing her diet. She started a blog, and nearly four years later she has become one of the fittest foodies in the industry. An advocate of the vegan diet, she noticed how consuming more plant-basted, whole foods helped her control her illness, stop the pain, and get her energy back. Her recipe book Deliciously Ella has become an international bestseller and is packed with delicious and nutritious meal ideas, like Brazil nut and rocket pesto pasta, Mexican quinoa bowls with cashew cream, and beetroot chocolate cake with chocolate icing.
To Age Gracefully
Aging gracefully is definitely a hot topic nowadays, with countless celebrities opening up about the pressures of keeping their youthful looks and wanting to do so naturally. Speaking to Savoir Flair, Diala Makki recently declared, “I am determined to age gracefully and naturally,” and Hollywood stars like Cameron Diaz are opening up about the topic too. In fact, it’s something Diaz feels so strongly about that she’s released a new book on the subject, The Longevity Book, which approaches the science, biology, and history of aging but with a holistic, natural angle.
To Find Balance
Having trained stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Elle Macpherson, it’s safe to say health guru James Duigan knows a thing or two about getting your body in tip-top shape. But you can forget the fads and impossible workout regimes, because Duigan’s approach is all about balance – eating a clean diet and exercising right to keep your body in check. In his bestselling book, The Clean & Lean Diet, he explains why eating clean will not only help you shed weight but also boost your health, and it includes recipe ideas and workouts to complement your new healthy way of living.
