A few weeks ago I told you about Not Your Mama’s Crunchy Granola by Crystal Collins. The book outlines a 7-week program for healthier living.
Sounds scary? Yeah, that’s what I thought. But, I love what Crystal says in the introduction:
You have just made an investment in your health! No, wait! Don’t run away! This isn’t scary at all. I’m not going to tell you to stop shaving, wear hemp clothes, and have a unibrow. This ebook will take you through seven weeks on the subject of Healthy Eating, Green Alternatives, Fitness and also Saving Money. Each week speaks simply about steps you can take to gradually change your life. This is all done in baby steps, so that #1 you are not overwhelmed, and #2 you will be more motivated to try.
The baby steps look like this:
- How to Save Money
- Raw Foods
- Organic Gardening
- Green Your Home
When I look back at my life and the changes I’ve made over the years, I realize that change doesn’t happen in one fell swoop. It happens over time and in cycles. Looking through Crystal’s list of things I could simplify, I realize that there’s a great buffet of choices to choose from. I don’t need to do them all, but I can pick a few things and test them out. Later I might come back to the list and pick a few more.
I like that!
And I like it that Crystal makes the choices clear.
Currently, the book is $5. But, if you order the book this weekend and use the code GCE, you can get the book for $2.99!
Win a copy!
Crystal is also giving away a copy of her book to 1 lucky Good Cheap Eater.
