Modern society has made it harder than ever to be healthy. We’re confused by all the self-help books, new superfoods, cleanses and eating plans that tout they hold the secrets to wellness. We’ve also become trained to think that health, weight loss and self-care are indulgent, elusive goals that need strict rules and money to be achieved. These complicated messages have inaccurately shaped our personal relationship with food and our perceptions on wellness. They compete with our instinctive desire to do something so natural and enjoyable; to eat. That said, being healthy does not have to be difficult. Forget restrictive diets, counting calories, macros or estimating point values of food. Let’s bring ease and happiness back to our wellness with a simple, easy-to-implement message: Food should be nourishing and uplifting, not mentally draining and emotionally discouraging.
Because any life-changing decision requires a plan, the authors model their strategies after classic aviation principles. As such, readers are urged to create an individual “flight plan” by progressing through metaphorically titled chapters, including “Flight Route,” “Timeline,” and “Fuel Calculation,” among others. Overall, this collaboration brings a fresh approach to the gluten-free movement. READ FULL REVIEW
Gluten Free Soul Pilot is essential reading for those seeking joyful, holistic, gluten-free health. There are many cookbooks available for those with diet restrictions, but this is a book which inspires, uplifts and delights the senses with beautiful poetry, gorgeous photos, and ideas to slow down, simplify and just breathe. Now that’s a gift!
The book is organized as a “flight plan” for gradually and systematically changing one’s personalized diet, exercise regime, mental and health habits, and other steps to bring life back into balance. The authors are gentle and nonjudgmental in their tone, constantly offering encouraging advice about making realistic, small changes toward more healthy life choices.
