Soup and Bread Cookbook Book Review:

The Soup and Bread Cookbook aims to explore the social role of soup through a collection of terrific, affordable recipes from food activists, chefs, and others. This quirky exploration of the cultural history of soup as a tool for both building community and fostering social justice is the result of a brainstorm: eating your way through a pot of soup day after day can get boring — why not get together and swap some with friends? Now neighbors across the country are getting together regularly for home-based "soup swaps." In Chicago, the arts collective InCUBATE uses soup as a microfunding tool. And of course, soup can be a political statement: the radical volunteers of Food Not Bombs have been providing free vegetarian soup to the hungry as a protest against war and social injustice since 1980. These are just a few examples of the stories Bayne wraps around a collection of delicious, accessible, and tested soup recipes.

From New York Times bestselling author of THE VIRGIN DIET comes a groundbreaking program that will revolutionize the way readers think about sugar and help you drop fat fast--up to 10 pounds in just two weeks! NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER If you're eating healthy, but just can't seem to lose weight, you're not alone. Sugar is the single biggest needle mover when it comes to your health and the number on the scale, but sugar hides in places you'd never expect: whole foods, diet foods, packaged foods, dressings . . . even sugar substitutes. And it's not enough to cut out or cut back on sugar-you have to cut out the right kinds of sugar. In this groundbreaking book, New York Times bestselling author JJ Virgin explains the powerful concept of Sugar Impact: how different sugars react differently in the body. High Sugar Impact foods cause weight gain, energy crashes, and inflammation. Low Sugar Impact foods fuel your body for prolonged energy and promote fat burning. This eye-opening book pinpoints the most damaging sugars that we eat every day-without even realizing it-in common foods like skim milk, diet soda, whole-grain bread, and "healthy" sweeteners like agave. By swapping High Sugar Impact foods for Low Sugar Impact foods, you will shed fat fast--up to 10 pounds in 2 weeks!--and transform your body and your health for good. Best of all, you don't need to eliminate sugar completely or count calories. Prepare to: Lose the bloat Target belly fat Rev your metabolism Cut cravings Become a fat burner, not a sugar burner Lose fat fast-and forever!

“Dawn makes healthy eating fun and delicious, and the dishes are easy to prepare. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to eat nutritious, joyful food.”—Lyn-Genet Recitas, New York Times bestselling author of The Plan The 4-week plan that beat out all other plans in the ABC weight-loss reality TV show My Diet Is Better than Yours. For more than fifteen years, nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner has helped hundreds of clients lose their bad eating habits and step up to optimal health. The key? Not deprivation, but a new kind of gratification, which she calls “super swapping”—exchanging fake foods (C.R.A.P.: food with Chemicals; Refined sugar and flour; Artificial sweeteners and colors; and Preservatives) for wholesome high-quality superfoods. A largely plant-based diet rich in fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants stabilizes hunger hormones, speeds metabolism, and fights disease. For each week, Blatner shares simple techniques, with eat/avoid lists, ideas for great lunches, advice on how to read labels to spot healthy-food impostors, and scores of useful infographics. The 100 tempting recipes—many vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free—include Fish Tacos with Crunchy Cabbage Slaw, BBQ Sandwich & Collard Chips, Sprouted Pizza, and Dark Chocolate Cherry Milkshake. Each one comes with a nutrition analysis. “Informative, creative, and fun. She shares sound nutrition advice based on scientific research and years of experience, and she does it in a way that’s both engaging and easy to digest. Filled with practical tips, helpful charts, and delicious recipes, this book definitely deserves a spot on your bookshelf.”—Joy Bauer, MS, RDN, health and nutrition expert for NBC’s Today Show and #1 New York Times bestselling author of From Junk Food to Joy Food

Also included are recipes for flavor enhancers and finishing touches—such as croutons, caramelized onions, roasted garlic, pestos, kimchi, and more—and over 15 informative features on “Vegetarian Kitchen Essentials,” including Five Salad Dressings, Five Easy Desserts, Cooking for One, and Hosting a Dinner Party. “The beauty of Volger’s approach lies in its simplicity, creativity, and portability.” —Publishers Weekly

Orchard House Book Review:

For fans of Anne Lamott, a profoundly moving memoir of rediscovering, reinventing, and reconnecting, as an estranged mother and daughter come together to revive a long-abandoned garden and ultimately their relationship and themselves. Peeling paint, stained floors, vined-over windows, a neglected and wild garden—Tara Austen Weaver can’t get the Seattle real estate listing out of her head. Any sane person would have seen the abandoned property for what it was: a ramshackle half-acre filled with dead grass, blackberry vines, and trouble. But Tara sees potential and promise—not only for the edible bounty the garden could yield for her family, but for the personal renewal she and her mother might reap along the way. So begins Orchard House, a story of rehabilitation and cultivation—of land and soul. Through bleak winters, springs that sputter with rain and cold, golden days of summer, and autumns full of apples, pears, and pumpkins, this evocative memoir recounts the Weavers’ trials and triumphs, detailing what grew and what didn’t, the obstacles overcome and the lessons learned. Inexorably, as mother and daughter tend this wild patch and the fruits of their labor begin to flourish, green shoots of hope emerge from the darkness of their past. For everyone who has ever planted something that they wished would survive—or tried to mend something that seemed forever broken—Orchard House is a tale of healing and growth set in a most unlikely place. Praise for Orchard House “This touching memoir chronicles how the act of transforming a garden together—of ‘planting hope’—helps a mother and daughter reconnect and revive the sense of groundedness that had been lost within their relationship and themselves. . . . [Orchard House] deftly [captures] the love, laughter, trials and tears that make motherhood the joy and job it truly is.”—American Way “Honest and moving . . . [the story of] one woman’s initiation into intensive gardening with her mother, which changed a neglected space into something beautiful and bountiful and shifted their relationship as well.”—Kirkus Reviews “Fascinating, tender, often heartbreaking . . . The perfect gift for a mother or a daughter with an appreciation for the transformative power of gardening.”—HGTV Gardens “A wise exploration of family roots . . . Nurturing a garden is a lovely metaphor for healing a family. . . . [Orchard House] could serve as a handbook for both.”—Shelf Awareness “With buoyant grace and empathic insights, Weaver offers an ardent tribute to both the science of perseverance and the art of letting go.”—Booklist “This is a glorious book—lyrical, honest, compassionate, and wise. It reminds us that gardens and families are messy businesses, but from them we can harvest hope and food and moments of grace.”—Erica Bauermeister, author of The School of Essential Ingredients “Filled with sensuous descriptions, this beguiling story enchants. Gardeners and non-gardeners alike will delight in this lyrical tale of how a garden grows a family.”—Diana Abu-Jaber, author of The Language of Baklava and Birds of Paradise “Orchard House is a glorious and deeply moving story of one family’s redemption. If Anne Lamott and Wendell Berry ever had a literary love child, Tara Austen Weaver might well be her.”—Elissa Altman, author of Poor Man’s Feast
