This is the book I have been waiting for someone to easy, accessible approach to healthful homemade food. I wish the word 'diet' was not in the title, because I believe that has such a negative connotation for a book with a positive message. This is not a diet-it is an approach to food from a different perspective, integrating yoga and meditation into a positive lifestyle. I appreciate, as opposed to some health-food or vegan philosophies, that if you 'slip up' and have an ice cream or an alcoholic drink it's not the end of the world. Like Tara has said about Strala, it is about ease. That approach to yoga and food is especially helpful for someone in recovery from an eating disorder and compulsive exercise. Tara sharing her story and how she has adapted her lifestyle makes you feel like you have a guide right there with you. Now, if I could just get my hands on a Vitamix!!

Nothing quite prepares you for that moment when you have to call an ambulance because your husband thinks he might be having a heart attack.   Emergencies bring out so many random emotions. As the paramedics hooked my husband up to machines to assess his condition, I waffled between being justifiably concerned and scared for him and our family, and nonsensical notions about how the paramedics must be judging us for having our child running around in only a diaper on a cold December night (I was getting ready for bath time when the incident occurred).   My husband was fine, thankfully, and the episode was brought on by too much stress and caffeine and not enough self care.   This was a major wakeup call for us, and we promptly declared 2015 our “year of health.” But where did we start? Neither of us are overweight aside from a few vanity pounds that we’d like to shed before swimsuit season, and no one in our family is dealing with any health issues of any kind.   When Hay House offered me the opportunity to review Tara Stiles book, The Make Your Own Rules Diet, in exchange for a review....I jumped at the chance. Making our own rules sounded like everything we needed! I liked that Tara’s diet plan isn’t a diet at all….It’s based on feeding your body healthy foods, and doing exercise that feels good (Tara’s approach is yoga, if you didn’t know). The book also provides a 30-day plan to get you kickstarted on a healthy lifestyle. I liked the book a lot…it touched on yoga and meditation (both that I’m trying to get my husband to try) in a really approachable and nonthreatening way, and the recipes were very easy to prepare (great for me…a cook with marginal skills), and quite tasty. The one thing that I didn’t like about this book was that most of the photos were from Tara’s personal Instagram (which I know because I follow her), and while I love her Instagram feed….it made the book feel a bit rushed an unprofessional to have most of the photos be pulled from social media.
