I had a copy of it in my hands at one point, even think I mentioned it here in forums, and for the life of me, can’t come up with it again. It was about more conscious living and making improvements in steps, without beating yourself up – appreciating the process, not setting yourself up for/dwelling on failures. For instance, not trying to become vegetarian overnight, but experimenting with vegetarian recipes, cutting back on red meat, buying local, etc., and going from there – depending on what your motivation was to begin with. It addressed all kinds of lifestyle issues. I think I may have seen the author (blonde woman?) on a talk show, maybe Oprah. It was a long time ago though and my internet searching is not helping. Anyone know what I’m talking about?January 29, 2010 at 6:33 pm #687435January 29, 2010 at 7:03 pm #687436
If you can’t remember right away, don’t beat yourself up about it. Give it time, and it will come to you. Try remembering part of the title…January 29, 2010 at 8:07 pm #687437
Not familiar with this particular book, so I entered “oprah conscious living vegetarian book” into Bing and came up with Kathy Freston who is blonde and has written the type of book you described: http://kathyfreston.com/. The other well known author who recommends incremental steps to changing your health is Dr. Andrew Weil; as a physician and botanist, he balances the traditional medical approach with an ‘alternative,’ holisitic point of view: http://www.drweil.com/. Hope this helps with your search.January 29, 2010 at 9:32 pm #687438
Quantum Wellness (not the cleanse book) by Kathy Freston is it!! I don’t know why I couldn’t find it. It stresses the “importance of leaning into change…taking small, manageable steps” and not just about healthy diet, but other topics from a healthy planet to bad habits. Guess I should try Bing more often, thanks metrognome :)January 29, 2010 at 11:17 pm #687439
Glad I could help; I find I get better results from Bing for this kind of search as it seems to give more focused results. I think Kathy Freston was the fourth hit on the first page whereas with another search engine I probably would have had to sift through 40 pages of Oprah hits to find her.
