Book Review: Lola Berry's Beauty Food
Title: Beauty Food
Author: Lola Berry
Publication Date: November 2017
Synopsis: "Nourish yourself inside and out with Lola Berry's delicious wholefood recipes and natural beauty treatments.
When it comes to glowing skin, sparkling eyes, lustrous hair and healthy nails, we truly are what we eat. Whether it's olive oil for thick, strong hair or health fats for radiant skin, Lola's recipes and beauty tips celebrate the benefits of eating wholefoods for your body.
Lola also includes advice on which chemicals to avoid when buying cosmetics, foods that can have a negative impact on your skin (hello, sugar!) and the importance of that miracle youth elixir, sleep.
Say goodbye to expensive face creams and salon treatments, and start stocking your fridge and pantry with healthy wholefoods that will make you feel beautiful from the inside out."
My thoughts: This is a beautiful little book, filled with gorgeous photography, simple styling, and delicious recipes. I have really loved Lola Berry's books in the past and this is definitely no exception - in fact I think I liked this one even more than the last!
Helpfully split up into sections depending on which part of the body you want to assist most (hair, eyes, face, etc.), each section starts with the 'hero ingredients' that will really benefit you, before moving into the recipes, and then finishing up with some homemade treatments, such as masks.
Lola's voice in this, as in all her books, is friendly, down-to-earth, and informative. She also shares some great yoga poses to help with circulation and such, all in an effort to help you feel better in your own body.
This is a wonderful little aid to have in your arsenal, and I highly recommend it. I have already tried (and become addicted to) several of the recipes, and am planning to make quite a few of the homemade treatments.
[I received a review copy of this book from Pan Macmillan in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!!]
A favourite recipe from the book: I am a suck for a good smoothie or milkshake, and the Maca, Macadamia and Carob Shake is one I was slightly sceptical about but now adore. Highly recommend!
You would like this book if: You like Lola Berry; you like books where they help you to look and feel good via your gut.
Tea to drink while reading this book: Perhaps a herbal tea with some nettle for detoxifying?
