Not only is this book a guide but Ms. Reeder and Dr. Couey give biblical reasons and example of the "why." Why sugar isn't good for us. Why we need to eat locally grown foods. And even why exercise is "right" for us. "We must train ourselves for godliness..." (p. 279).
This read has made be rethink my eating habits and forced me to think responsibly about what goes into my body.
Will I change? You can count on it! Already I'm eating less sugar and eating more fresh veggies...not so many fruits right now as I'm cutting down on the sugars. Do I feel better? A resounding YES!
A fantastic read and a fabulous guide for all the right reasons! Don't delay get your copy today and get started on the road to Healthy Living!

(Maybe it's because I'm hungry...no, it really does look scrumptious!)
As soon as I read about this book I was intrigued to discover what it had to offer. And upon receiving it and delving into it, I have been in no way disappointed.
Treasures of Healthy Living by Annette Reeder and Dr. Richard Couey is actually more of a study than a book. As a matter of fact, I plan to try to go through this study with a couple of people whom I know have a major interest in eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle. I really cannot wait to dig into it with them! I think they are going to love it just as much as I do.
This 12-week study is one of the most holistic health and wellness guides I have ever seen. Not only does it focus on giving the reader very practical guidance in food selection and consumption, but it also connects foods and lifestyle with our God and His Word. It is truly amazing to see how much He has to say in His Word about food and eating and drinking as well as health and well-being.
To give you an idea of the vast array of foods discussed in this book, I will list the chapters for you here:
Treasure of Health (intro embarking on this treasure hunt about health)
Beverages (includes water & The Living Water, milk, juice, and others)
Grains (including bread & The Bread of Life, whole grains, seeds and nuts)
Vegetables & Fruits (focuses on color as well as gardening)
Herbs, Spices, Oil, & Vinegar (focus = flavor as well as herbal medicine)
Protein & Meat (overall discussion about meat, beef, and protein)
Fasting & Self-Discipline (God's design & benefits of fasting & self-control)
Sweets (WooHoo! My fave! Okay, really, it's the good & bad about sweets.)
Environment & Toxins (focuses both on recognizing toxins & on allergies)
Stress & Forgiveness (Yes, those two go hand-in-hand at times!)
Exercise (Caring for your body as the temple it is w/physical & mental exercise)
The Fullness of Christ & Health (Joy, laughter, & practical action plans!)
APPENDIX (Action Plan, Daniel Fast Journal, Health Assessment, & Results of My Hunt)
So, what do you think?
Are you as intrigued as I was?
If so, I highly recommend getting a copy of Treasures of Healthy Living by Annette Reeder and Dr. Richard Couey as well as its companion books (which I plan to get soon also): the Treasures of Health Nutrition Manual and the Healthy Treasures Cookbook.
Sooo, will you join me on a journey to discovering and utilizing the Treasures of Healthy Living in many ways: by using this study guide, by exercising more (as I have recently started doing) & especially by reading through God's Word from cover-to-cover?
I hope you will!
Please let me know how this is all going for you!

I should have paid more attention to the book description, as I missed the "practical Bible study" part. In the short time that I've had the book, I haven't had time to really dig into the Bible study portion, but I have read through the book. The authors' insights are interesting, and I have a feeling I'd learn a lot if I took time to dig into the suggested scriptures. However, the book often references two other books: Healthy Treasures Cookbook and Treasures of Health Nutrition Manual. Obviously, you can get by without buying a special cookbook, and I'm sure you can find plenty of similar healthy recipes online. But the Nutrition Manual is a different story. So often, the authors will be discussing a topic, and then there's a little "Digging Deeper" box that says something like, "For more information on _______, read about it in the Nutrition Manual." I really want to know that information, but without spending $17 to buy the book, I won't.
It boils down to this: If you're looking for a nutrition-based Bible study, this is probably perfect for your needs. But if you're looking for nutrition advice, you'd be better off with the Nutrition Manual or another nutrition book.
