D-Tox e-Cookbook Now on Sale!

There are some things in life that we can’t control. But, luckily, there are also some that we can. Contracting a chronic disease is something that makes the strongest person feel weak. Helping and standing by people who we are close to in that situation can take a lot of inner strength. Taking steps to prevent such eventualities is however something we can all do.

At the end of 2010, I came to fully understand the benefits of an increased intake of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables in our diets and the potential this has for the prevention of chronic diseases, such as cancer. I decided to give my families diets a boost through introducing fresh juices and smoothies into our daily lives. I kick-started this change by collaborating with and drawing upon the knowledge and advice of a group of wonderful fellow bloggers.

Eat Fresh and D-Tox Your Life

The D-tox January  event was created and at the beginning of 2011, 20+ bloggers came together for 31 days to share 31 nourishing and detoxifying smoothie, juice, and soup recipes. The blogosphere buzzed with great new ways of upping the intake of fruit and vegetables to start the year off right.

The January D-tox event was so well received that we decided to write and publish an e-cookbook—capturing these fantastic recipes, tips and tricks in one place.

And so without further ado, we announce the release of Eat Fresh and D-Tox Your Life: A Collection of Smoothies, Juices, Soups and Tips for the Whole Family. Not only will this book provide you with inspiration to increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, but it also benefits others. All proceeds from this e-book go directly to MitoAction.

What is Mitochondrial Disease?

Mitochondrial disease is a genetic, neurodegenerative disorder that occurs when the mitochondria fail to produce enough energy for cell or organ function. More common than cystic fibrosis, mitochondrial disease can develop in both children and adults and is often misdiagnosed. Mito symptoms are varied and progressive, and can include stroke, muscle pain, extreme fatigue, and organ failure. Mitochondrial disease is related to many other conditions, including autism, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s.

Gwens dedication for Mito Action

Diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease, Gwen was not able to eat and had to receive IV nutrition. She has spent as much of her young life in the hospital as out, and was the recipient of a multi-organ transplant, which included a new stomach, intestines, liver, pancreas, and spleen.

Today, as always, she and her family are fighting to help her live a healthy life and allow her to do as many of the things young kids like to do as possible. Recently, Gwen was to be able to savor a bite of banana! As food bloggers, we live and breathe food, so we’d like to dedicate this book to Gwen.
