As part of the Awakening Project we have another 2 books for you this month covering mindfulness, health & nutrition and spirituality.
Proteinaholic - Garth Davis M.D
This is our first big book on nutrition, and I will say now that it gets pretty deep into science and studies, but somehow Garth Davis M.D has a way of making this deep dive into science and nutrition, not just easy to understand but constantly keeps it relevant to our personal lives and health by coming back to the main message that is animal protein is not as healthy as you have been led to believe. If you care about your health, and the health of your family then this book is a great read, not very long, 300 pages max, it contains a wealth of information and knowledge, as well as recipes, advice and useful tips from one of the worlds leading Bariatric Surgeons and obesity experts. It's a book I recommend to anyone who wants to improve their weight, waistline and overall health and it is one I have recommended to many who are studying plant based nutrition.
A New Earth - Eckhart Tolle
This is the latest book from Eckhart Tolle and if you loved the Power of Now then this is a must read. Covering less the principles of Mindfulness and more practice and purpose it ushers in a new level of oneness and understanding of mindfulness and spirituality. Tolle uses real life events and examples to explain mindfulness and its purpose in bringing about a new level of consciousness to humanity and this planet. In a sense creating a new earth.
I read this book on my honeymoon in Tuscany and it shaped many of my decisions during that time including starting this company, website and blog. The desire to share that experience of mindfulness and compassion has only grown since discovering this book and I cannot recommend it enough. Even if you found Tolle's other works a little hard to get through this book has a totally different feel, more conversational that educational, yet it will transform you in ways you may not expect.
