West Bloomfield, MI (PressExposure) April 04, 2009 -- âNatural Foods Recipes-Health Coach Approvedâ is the newly published cookbook by Cheryl Heppard of Michigan Health Coach. Heppard, a board certified holistic health counselor, published the book for two reasons. âI needed a way to easily share my recipes with clients and since not all of my clients are internet savvy, I needed a way to share my favorite recipes and save myself the time it takes to make copies. Secondly, I wanted to be able to put a cookbook on my website as a way for potential clients to get to know me and learn what my nutrition philosophies are all aboutâ. Every recipe is a personal favorite for the health coach, as well as being taste tested and approved by her family, friends, and clients. âI spent a lot of time making sure that the recipes I chose are the ones which offered the most flavor, health benefits, and can fit within the pervasive busy scheduleâ, says Heppard.
According to Wikipedia, âNatural foods are foods that are minimally processed. Natural foods do not include ingredients such as refined sugar, refined flour, milled grains, hydrogenated oils, sweeteners, food colors, or flavorings.â Heppard feels that ânatural foodsâ is the newest buzz word in healthy cooking and wanted to offer a new twist on the old buzz words such as âhealthyâ, âwhole foodsâ or âdietâ. Adds the author, âAnd actually, âhealth coachâ is yet another new up and coming keyword which is growing in popularity as people look for new and holistic ways to improve their healthâ. The 39 page color cookbook offers recipes which covers everything from breakfast, snacks, soups, main dishes and dessert. Most of the recipes are gluten and dairy free, and all of the recipes are diabetic safe. Some of the recipes are vegetarian and vegan as well.
