Just Peachy By Belinda Smith-Sullivan

Just Peachy by Belinda Smith-Sullivan (Gibbs-Smith/May 2019) provides a vast array of delicious recipes all showcasing the versatile peach that can delight holiday meals.

Just Peachy contains 70 recipes that cover a wide range of dishes that include peaches.  Recipes range from breads, breakfasts, appetizers, entrees and desserts to sauces, preserves, condiments and drinks, all beautifully photographed.  Chef Belinda has included facts about peaches, information on growing and growers, festivals, a list of all peach varietals and how to use them, and the history of peaches.

Recipes in Just Peachy range from the sweet to the savory and grace any holiday celebration:

–    Buttermilk Peach Waffles
–    Old-Fashioned Tea Cakes with Peach-Almond Glaze
–    Hot Curried Peaches
–    Peach and Tomato Gazpacho
–    Greek-Style Beef Stew with Peaches

–    Blueberry-Peach Slump
–    Chocolate-Peach Soufflé 
–    Peach-Thyme Pound Cake
–    Granddad’s Easy Homemade Peach Brandy

Just Peachy proves the peach is a very versatile fruit, lending itself easily to savory applications, especially when paired with meats like chicken, pork, fish, and lamb.  Chef Belinda’s peach-inspired recipes will allow home cooks to celebrate the holidays peachy deliciously.

Detoxelicious: Easy Soul Food Inspired 10-Day Detox Cleanse Recipes and Fitness for Super Busy People

Balancing our lives can be challenging.  We want more energy, but we are tired of all the latest trendy and fad diets.  Detoxification means ensuring your entire body is functioning at an optimal, balance level.  When our bodies are in balance, we feel energized and refreshed.

Award-winning market researcher, health coach and certified yoga instructor Dena Dodd Perry has just released her first book DETOXELICIOUS: EASY SOUL FOOD INSPIRED 10-DAY DETOX CLEANSE RECIPES AND FITNESS FOR SUPER BUSY PEOPLE, a self-help food-fitness book that will assist readers make their food-fitness journey easier and delicious.

DETOXELICIOUS is an easy soul-food inspired guide centered on foods that detoxify, fitness and mindfulness. It is a detox 101 resource book that is supported by healthcare professionals which promotes healthy living and healthier food designed to be dairy-free, sugar-free, grain-free, meat-free and carb-free.

The 10-day detox plan in Perry’s book is based on her own health story having suffered the effects of pneumonia as a young child and the complications she experienced from having to live on a battery of antibiotics for a long period of time.

“I was on a mission to restore balance for my own gut and cardiovascular health. I decided to start by taking the ‘old school’ cayenne pepper and lemon water cleanse, then I proceeded to drink cold pressed juice cleanses once a year beginning in 2012. Then, I finally found a 10-day detox supplement plan in 2014 that I loved,” Perry explains.  “My detox approach was to cross reference plant-based super foods with soul food that I loved to eat as a child. I especially loved eating my Grandmother’s collard greens from Selma, Alabama. I incorporated those favorite recipes into this program.”

DETOXELICIOUS provides readers with daily mindfulness exercises such as yoga movements and breath work.  Recipes include: Berry Strawberry Smoothie, Gentle Lentil Vegetable Soup, Beyond Cheeseburga! Cheeseburga!, Vegan Barbecue Chicken Pizza, Hot Buffalo Cauliflower, Hip-Hoppin’ John Black-Eyed Peas, African Fire Vegetarian Chili.
        
With the aim to make every reader healthy inside and out, DETOXELICIOUS offers plant-based recipes intended to give the kidney and liver a 10-day break from complex proteins and processed sugary foods. Supplements supported by healthcare professionals are also added in order to reach desired health goals effectively with renewed energy levels. Moreover, the book highlights the importance of yoga fitness (to aid the body’s natural detoxification) and mindfulness (to remain mentally inspired throughout the detox journey).

“Anyone can decide to make better lifestyle changes. Making better choices with your food-fitness routine is the best way to start. It starts with the premise of giving your heart, liver and kidneys a break from complex animal proteins, fats and processed foods. Go with a fiber-rich plant-based diet for only 10 days. It’s not a lot to ask in a year which is comprised of 365 days,” Perry stresses.

For every copy of DETOXELICIOUS sold, proceeds will go to local children’s charities.
