Treasures of Health Nutrition Book Giveaway

Source: Designed Healthy Living

With the start of the new year, did you make some nutritional goals?

Have you been considering a new approach to wellness with diet, exercise, or other life/home changes?

I received a timely review copy of the Treasures of Health Nutrition Manual from Designed Healthy Living a couple months ago, and it has been at our fingertips for browsing at the dining table. Multiple family members looked through the book during visits over the past weeks, appreciating the quick-read format and succinct reference information to answer nutritional questions.

Nutrition Manual from Designed Healthy Living

I found this book helpful in working through the question of whether or not to use supplements (based on eating a healthy, real food diet). The information provided helps provide reasons when they may be necessary, or offering food alternatives instead.

At one point, I appreciated the current research information on Vitamin D supplements. My midwife tested my blood vitamin D levels this winter. Even though I’ve consciously tried to add real foods rich in this vitamin to my diet, we found that my results were still very low, and needed supplementation during this season of pregnancy (and soon, nursing again).

I loved the analytical recommendations of nutrient-rich raw milk (with its naturally-occurring lactase for digestion), grass-fed/pastured meats, avoiding the “Daily Dozen” produce and GMOs, and using only natural sugars. (However, I would recommend pairing this book with Nourishing Traditions, as I prefer to avoid soy altogether and use “real fats” such as butter and coconut oil, for example.) The author is a bit more accepting of soy consumption than I am, and more cautious- but still encouraging- of the use of fats.

The biblical perspective of the Nutrition Manual is refreshing. If you’re in the midst of transitioning your food choices or embarking upon a new diet, it can be especially helpful to meditate upon the encouragement of Bible verses.

The Nutrition Manual is also a resource for lifestyle information, encouraging healthy exercise, biblical & medical perspectives on birth control, chemicals in the home, and even some healthy tips for pet care!

Designed Healthy Living offers a selection of materials, in addition to the Nutrition Manual book, including Bible studies for groups, a cookbook, DVDs, and more.

    I love the cookbook. I am always looking for different ways to present the same types of food:-)

    I’d also love the 12 cd collection. I could listen to it while I’m in the kitchen making meals for my family.

    All the books look great and will have to add them to my wish list. I have done a Daniel Fast many times and am looking forward to looking through her ebook.

  • Emily Leigh

    Def. the cookbook. New recipes that are healthy are always great. It is getting harder to find good cookbooks. One that I was given for Christmas has recipes that start with “take one box of cake mix…”

  • I love to learn more about healthy eating, especially in a Biblical approach! Would love to study this book!

  • I liked it on Facebook!

  • I was just looking at Daniel Fast books on Amazon, thanks for the tip! I would probably be most interested in the book, Treasures of Healthy Living!

  • Ashley

    The Excalibur Dehydrator is definitely my pick product on the page. I am very interested in dehydrating to healthfully prepare and preserver food but my current machine just doesn’t cut it. I would be so grateful to win a copy of this book for my family as well. We are on a new path of a healthful diet and this would be a great resource!

  • Shanna

    The Chef’s companion chart would be handy posted in my kitchen.

  • Lots of information to be had. Was glad to see the discount for churches. I am a sucker for cookbooks would like to check out some of the recipes.

  • Thanks SO MUCH for the opportunity! I think I’m interested in the Daniel Fast, too. Put that 1 on my list. :-)

  • Gayle H.

    I love the Treasures of Healthy Living study! I wonder if I could ever talk my church into offering a study like that. I love the idea of approaching nutrition and health from a Biblical perspective–not something churches should avoid, I think. Thanks for giveaway : )

  • Gayle H.

    Liked them on FB too.

  • Kami Fleener

    I love their website and everything in it! I am most interested in the 12 DVD set bible study! I am also a facebook fan!

    How about everything! I would like to do the Bible study with a group

    The Treasures for Healthy Living Bible Study really peaked my curiosity. I also appreciate the chance to win the Treasure of Health Nutrition Manual. Thanks!

  • This sounds fantastic! I would be most interested in the nutrition manual I think, but everything would be cool.

  • Scarlet

    The cookbook, I just can’t seem to stay away from a good cookbook! But the manual seems very interesting as well.

  • Lori

    I visited the Designed Healthy Living website. I would love a Bosch mixer, but more in my price range right now would be the Healthy Treasures Cookbook.

  • Nancy Smith

    I visited the website. Looks like a good resource!
    I’m intrigued by the Daniel Fast and will probably print it out. I’m most interested in the Healthy Treasures Cookbook.

  • Nancy Smith

    Oh my goodness, I love so much! My first preference to have in my home would be the Nutrition Manual. Hopefully it would answer some questions and put to rest some wonders for me.

  • Jacquie Olsen

    The book and the cookbook both look great! I’m sure the nutritional manual would be a great resource – all of it! Why do we need so much information to get and keep us motivated to live healthy? We do! Thank you.
