Hi People,

Thought I would share with you an opportunity of getting a signed hardcopy of the book The Blue Zones by Dan Buettner.

If you have never heard of The Blue Zones book, it is a good read that will really change your outlook on your diet and just your wellbeing in general. The author went around the world discovering the world’s best practices in health and longevity seeking those communities where there were a higher statistical number of centenarians. The author focused on 4 communities – Sardinia, Italy; Okinawa, Japan; Loma Linda, CA; and Costa Rica. The premise of TBZ was that if you optimize your lifestyle, you may gain back an extra decade of good life.


Interested? Whether you already are a fan of The Blue Zone or interested in reading it, to get your opportunity to get a signed copy, simply go to and follow the instructions on the blog.

In the meantime, stay tuned on this site for more recipe blogs. I am a little behind on this and have a few good bread and vegan recipes to share!
