All about Cooking Well: Beautiful Skin
But the message often stops there. Where are the billboards for the wide variety of antioxidant-based foods that we can eat to improve our skin?
As I began researching antioxidant-rich foods and creating recipes for glowing skin, my idea of cooking for beauty morphed into something deeper as I pondered what beauty really is. My book matured into incorporating an inspirational message, stemming from my philosophical quest to define beauty.
I define beauty as your authentic, inner self. I want to share my ideas of authentic inner and outer beauty and offer a way to cook with antioxidant ingredients to reveal beautiful skin.
This is a unique beauty cookbook, because in addition to 50 exceptionally easy and delicious recipes, I have compiled 50 Antioxidant Beauty “Bytes” that share secrets and fun tips for beautiful skin. The Beauty “Bytes” are derived from natural ingredients and are easy and enjoyable to follow. At the core of the book is an inspirational approach to discovering one’s authentic inner beauty. Beauty is not skin-deep.
There is an authentic, inner beauty within all of us that transcends our outer beauty. My beauty cookbook is about living for yourself and becoming the most beautiful person you can be.
Over the past few years, we have seen a rise in people searching to find their “center.” This inspirational beauty cookbook is a creative avenue to a spiritual awakening. Cooking Well: Beautiful Skin communicates with readers in an easy, light, and encouraging tone, rather than a rigid, prescriptive-laden text.
Beauty transcends time, yet time erodes our ability to maintain ourselves. The ability to defer the degenerative changes we all face is this book’s lesson. Let the book be a guide and inspiration to always be in a state of becoming beautiful. The foundation and philosophy of Cooking Well: Beautiful Skin is that we are always in a state of becoming, and our beauty is always evolving.
I want to raise people’s spirits and provide them with a platform to understand their true beauty, and the beauty that is within each and every human being. I hope that with this understanding of authentic beauty, people will feel happier, have a newfound appreciation for their body and their spirit … and will feel beautiful.
Those who read this book will be inspired to cook for the sake of their beauty and health, which I believe are synonymous. I want people to know how miraculous our bodies are, and why it is so important to care for ourselves, body and soul. Caring for ourselves is how we truly connect with our authentic, inner beauty.
