Paleo Desserts – 30 Delicious Recipes (Perfectly Paleo)

Marriah Smith

Price: FREE

This is the dessert book I have been waiting for! Simple using the ingredients I want and avoiding all strange or complicating methods.
Many recipe books for this type of eating have mysterious, unusual ingredients (eye of newt) or they eliminate some thinks, like wheat flour, but kick up the sugar, another unwanted ingredient. This one strikes the perfect balance!

S. Guthrie

You have probably heard about fad diets like the Atkins Diet as well as things like Slim Fast. These diets, along with crash diets like the lemonade diet and the grapefruit diet are designed to help people lose weight but they are not necessarily designed to improve your health. The Paleo Diet, on the other hand, is scientifically proven to provide a number of significant health benefits. Individuals who follow the Paleo Diet often notice an improvement in symptoms related to chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and even heart disease. Many people who switch to the Paleo Diet also claim that they have more energy and that they experience an improved sense of overall wellbeing.

How to Be Gluten Free

Linda Etherton

Price: FREE

I’ve been following Linda’s blog since she started it in 2008.
I’ve always found her ideas helpful and love the recipes she shares.
This book is a great, quick read for those wanting some basic information on how to live gluten-free.
It pretty much hits all the main points of gf living…
It’s great to give folks who really don’t have much understanding about your gf life and aren’t big readers. This sums it all up nicely!

J. Yeager

For most people, going gluten free or having a child or spouse go gluten free is very overwhelming and often discouraging. Sometimes it’s even depressing. How to Be Gluten Free is intended to give hope and help to those who are on a gluten-free diet for any reason.

Ten chapters give ten steps to take in the process, starting with the most basic but very important step of facing emotions. Giving up food is a grieving process for many, and acknowledging that is the first step to handling it successfully. The remaining steps are more practical in nature and help people learn what they need to know to successfully buy and prepare gluten-free food, supplements, and personal care products as well as eat out safely, and connect with others.

This is not a cookbook, but a few recipes are included in an appendix to get you started.

The Three Kitties That Saved My Life

Michael Meyer

Price: $1.49

“The Three Kitties That Saved My Life” by Mike Meyer is a moving memoir about loss and recovery.
Meyer lost his first wife to cancer and gradually recovers from his grief and manages to move on with his life, with the help – you guessed it from the title – two cats and his second wife, named Kitty.
This is a selection of short chapters that chronicles the development of Meyer from a bitter widower to a fully functioning and happy man.
As an animal lover myself I could not help but love he tales of his relationship with the stray cat that comes into his life just as he needs someone the most – and the same goes for the cat.
Charming and much more upbeat so much sooner in the book than I would have expected this has a great feeling to it and is inspiring as well as entertaining. It reminded me much more of dog books such as “Marley and Me” (sorry, I have not read a similar cat book yet) than of cancer / loss/ self help books, but it should fit wonderfully in either category.
Having read different books by the same author I am amazed at the versatility of his writing and pleased to see a man so full of life behind those great books of his.



Losing loved ones is an awful fact of life; losing one’s loving spouse, one’s day-to-day partner through life, especially in the prime of life, is one of the most unbearable tolls that we humans are forced to endure. This is the true story of my journey from grieving widower, not caring if I lived or died, to the once-again happily married man I am today, a man who both loves and cherishes life. My three kitties have given me a new zest for living.

Both inspiring and entertaining, my story might just make you laugh at times, or bring a tear to your eye, as you journey along with me.

Real Food, Real Frugal

Susan Godfrey

Price: 99 cents

The book is written in a VERY casual tone and covers things like: What is and what is not real food, how to be frugal and still eat real food and has lots of recipes! One of the really neat things she has added to the book is “the best real food choice” for things you use every day. Nice, quick, easy! She also has a resource section for additional reading. The majority of the eBook is recipes – 37% (per my Kindle) was informative writing on general real food, real frugal thoughts ~ the remainder is RECIPES! YUM! (Some REALLY GOOD ones too!)


How to cook and eat real foods on a budget.

Over the years, my family and I have tried to live a natural and real food lifestyle with varying degrees of success. We are a one income family and simply don’t make a lot of money. But this is the life that we’ve felt the Lord lead to live. While things are tight, the Lord has always provided for us and I’ve learned a lot of cost cutting measures along the way.

I’m even more committed to eating an living as cleanly as possible. I have learned how to live this lifestyle in a frugal manner and to be a good steward over the income that the Lord has provided me with.

The first part of Real Food, Real Frugal is about what defines real food. What it is, where to get it, and why you should be eating it.

The second part of Real Food, Real Frugal is full of cost cutting measures that will help you make the real food lifestyle more affordable and budget friendly.

The third part of Real Food, Real Frugal is my favorite–it’s full of inexpensive recipes that use real food ingredients, but won’t break the bank. It contains over 125 family favorite recipes your whole family will love.

I wrote this book because I really want to help others who have a hard time financially affording this lifestyle to learn from me how it can be don in a frugal manner.

Unlimited Power: The New Science Of Personal Achievement

Anthony Robbins

Price: $2.99

“Unlimited Power” is an exceptional compliment to “Awaken The Giant Within” and is easily one of the most powerful books I’ve ever read. In December 1994, after winning a battle with cancer, I stood, nearly bald, in the audience of my first motivational seminar, conducted by Anthony Robbins. Shortly after the seminar I read “Awaken The Giant Within” and “Unlimited Power” to learn more about taking charge of my destiny. To this day, I refer to these books often for inspiration and guidance.

Michael Davis

Anthony Robbins has devoted more than half his life to helping people discover and develop their own unique qualities of greatness. Considered the nation’s leader in the science of peak performance, he is the founder and chairman of the Anthony Robbins Companies, which are committed to assisting people in achieving personal and professional mastery.Robbins has served as a peak performance consultant for the executives of such organizations as IBM, AT&T, American Express, McDonnell-Douglas, and the United States Army, as well as professional sports teams such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Los Angeles Kings, the America America’s Cup team, and gold medal-winning Olympic athletes. Robbins also provides ongoing coaching and consulting to a number of prominent world figures and is the primary advisor in the re-engineering efforts of several organizations and communities.
Robbins’ special passion is to make the world a better place to live by assisting individuals in captaining their destinies — whether that means fostering their relationships with their families, directing their focus to achieve their goals, relieving emotional or financial distress, or making profound contributions to their communities and country. Throughout the years he has unselfishly given his energy and resources to those in need, and in 1991 he formed a nonprofit foundation to aid underprivileged children, homeless individuals, senior citizens, and the prison population.
