Three L.A. wellness gurus’ latest books serve up serious inspiration and instruction in how to live healthier, happier lives.
Recipes for Your Perfectly Imperfect Life By Kimberly Snyder, C.N. The sought-after plant-based nutritionist and wellness expert follows up her New York Times best-selling series with a motivating instructional book aimed at helping women connect to their true selves. Inside are 100-plus plant-based recipes, practical tools and illustrative personal anecdotes on things like overcoming body shame, restoring self-worth and kicking toxic social media habits to the curb. Says Snyder, “Feeling good naturally leads to looking good in a deeper way that taps into our wholeness and a level of peace from simply being comfortable with our perfectly imperfect selves.” $20, Random House
Daily Detox: Practices for a Vibrant Life By Claire Grieve It’s the second e-book for this celebrity yoga instructor, stretch therapist and plant-based health coach, who has identified simple daily activities that cause a buildup of stress, toxins, and physical and emotional tension. Boosting self-care practices despite a busy schedule is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s yoga guru’s aim here. “Practicing the minidetoxes I outline can help balance out the chaos and allow us to find fresh, vibrant energy every day,” Grieve says. $10
The Longevity Paradox: How to Die Young at a Ripe Old Age By Steven R. Gundry, M.D. The New York Times best-selling author’s follow-up to The Plant Paradox explores the idea that our fates—and lifespans—lie not in our genes or family history but in our gut bugs. These critters cause diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis and dementia, says Dr. Gundry. “The good news is that the tools and foods [needed] to accomplish [fighting] this are easy to find, delicious to eat and easy to do!” $29, Harper Wave
