Lemon's are a Girl's Best Friend
This post contains affiliate links.
Lemons Are a Girl's Best Friend is a handy, pocket-sized guide to thirty superfoods, each with two simple recipes--one to eat and one to use as a beauty treatment, complete with notes about each food's benefits and best uses.
With 60 recipes for healthy dishes and all-natural beauty treatments, Lemons Are a Girl's Best Friend lets you have your Pomegranate Facial and eat your Halloumi, Orange, and Pomegranate Salad, too. Each of the recipes uses just a handful of all-natural, common ingredients to make deliciously clean dishes and easy treatments for healthier skin, hair, and nails. Each superfood is introduced with a list of its active compounds, which are then translated into tangible benefits--for example, the Vitamin C in the Tomato and Basil Bruschetta gives your immune system a boost, while the lycopene in the Tomato Face Mask protects your skin from free radicals and UV rays. With recipes for grocery store staples (oats, sweet potatoes, cucumbers) and buzzy superfoods (seaweed, chia seeds, cider vinegar) alike, there is something in Lemons for everyone!
My thoughts: I love making natural beauty treatments, so I thought that this book was perfect! I love that there are recipes for things you can eat and then different beauty treatments you can make a home. The variety of foods you can use with this book makes it so much fun. I think this would be a fun book to pull out for a girls night, make the foods ahead and then each pick a couple of the beauty recipes to make. So many fun combinations!
I received this book from Blogging for books in exchange for my honest review.
