simply daytox & beet soup
It is with much joy that I announce the launch of my latest book, Simply Daytox.
I’ve created Simply Daytox for it to be a beacon of calm in this fast, full and busy world. Reading it does not only offer temporary refuge, simplicity and stillness. It allows and guides you to find those beacons of calm within your own life, everywhere and everyday.
To truly make it your own, honor your unique needs and learn when your life requires you to simplify and slow down, the book has been set up as a 7-day program. You’ll be guided to cook simpler, eat simpler, live simpler, slow down, dive in, clean up and clear out. You’ll learn about yourself, your talents, your traps and your tendencies and, as a result, gain insight about what’s essential to your personal wellbeing. By doing this you will be gifted with time, clarity and a sense of peace and space. You’ll relax, which is an absolute requirement for enjoying every precious day of your life in a content, calm and centered manner.
-Do you feel rushed, stressed or restless?
-Are you easily distracted?
-Do you feel dissatisfied?
-Are you always striving for better and more?
-Are you having difficulty making choices and decisions?
-Is your home, head, agenda or fridge overly full?
Did you answer one of these questions with YES? I’ve written this book for YOU!
Simply Daytox is a 7-day program to slow down and simplify when life is fast, full and busy. The program includes yoga, nutritional guidelines, recipes, (writing) exercises and lifestyle tips. These recipes contain no more than 6 affordable (plant-based) ingredients. All meals take 15 minutes, or less, to prepare. Yoga poses and (writing) exercises are simple and enjoyable for all levels.
Simply Daytox will be available in Dutch first and can be purchased via BOL.COM, all major book dealers or (even better) your local indie bookshop. Books should be in shops from the 10th of December 2016, onward. Are you in Utrecht this Sunday, December 11th? Come say hi, ask me anything, purchase one of the very first copies of Simply Daytox and have it signed by yours truly. Please sign up for the ‘meet & greet’ HERE.
To celebrate the launch of Simply Daytox, and to offer you a taste of its contents, I am honored to present an exclusive preview. All of the images in this post are from the book and taken by yours truly. I’ve also added a small gift to this post, one of the recipes Simply Daytox holds. It is a simple but ‘oh so good’ soup using cold season ingredients, amongst which the mighty beet. Scroll down to view the recipe and get cooking.
Can’t wait for us to connect over soup and simplifying!
