Très Green, Très Clean, Très Chic

Cover: 'Très Green, Très Clean, Très Chic'

Staff Review: "Très Green, Très Clean, Très Chic" by Rebecca Leffler

★★★★

This lovely lifestyle book is packed full of plant-based, gluten-free recipes, all inspired by the French culture, for each season. I loved the passion in this book, from the lifestyle tips to the wonderful recipes, to the yoga routines. Plus, I learned so much more about a plant-based diet reading it. Did you know that (contrary to what the media and some doctors tell us) Leffler  states that milk is not a healthy source of calcium? The countries who consume the most dairy actually have the highest rates of osteoporosis, because dairy is so acidic it leaches the calcium right out of bones. Plant based calcium does not have this affect, so your body actually absorbs the nutrients it needs like it is supposed to. That is just one tidbit you'll find in this book that centers around the power of plants and the wonderful French culture.

Audience: adults | Genre: nonfiction, cookbook
