     Eat your way to better health! In Eat Better, Live Better, Feel Better, Julie Cove explains how having too many acid-forming foods in your body creates an environment that can cause inflammation, resulting in everything from headaches to muscle pain to chronic illness. But, she argues, by adapting to an alkaline-based lifestyle you can ward off ill health, aid digestion, eliminate acid reflux and increase your energy. In this beautiful book, Julie gives you everything you need to quickly feel the benefits of the alkaline way of life.
     In Part I, Julie explains the basics of alkalizing, the science behind the food choices you make and what happens in your body when you eat certain foods. Julie then introduces her easy-to-follow 4-step program. In the first step of the program, Inspire, you ease into the alkaline lifestyle; step 2, Desire, encourages detoxification; step 3, Aspire, helps you dump years of toxins; and finally, step 4, Acquire, shows you how to maintain a balanced alkaline lifestyle with food, exercise and a positive outlook.
     With the basics covered, Julie then gives you more than 150 nutritionally-balanced, inspirational recipes to get started. With easy-to-find ingredients and simple preparations, these recipes offer a multitude of options for alkaline-balanced eating, including: nourishing smoothies, breakfasts, salads, soups, warm dishes, savory bites and sweet treats. The recipes are easily adaptable and full of flavor, ready for you to mix and match to help you meet your alkaline goals.
     Julie's personal story of overcoming illness is behind the writing of this book.

Eat Better, Live Better, Feel Better is a book that will help balance your body and revitalize your life, and will be your blueprint for improved good health for years to come.
