I love salads. On an average I eat 4 salads weekly. I typically just grab some lettuce either Ice Burg or Romaine. Throw some veggies in it and pour on some store-bought dressing. When I’m feeling a bit crazy, I’ll throw in some spinach when I’m feeling a bit wild and crazy. So, when this book came up as an option for review, I knew I’d need it.


Salad Love by David Bez

Salad love provides a salad a day for a year. It breaks down the salad down into layers: the base, Vegetable & fruit, protein, toppings, herbs, etc. It goes on to divide the salads by seasons. The salad pictures are beautiful. The ingredients are varied so you are certain to find some that you enjoy. I like how this book encourages its readers to step outside of what you think of as traditional salad.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review from the blogging for books program.

Wow! It’s been a whirl wind around here! Spring time tends to pick-up for us. We’ve got kids activities and my training for a half-marathon. That paired with increased sunlight, we start spending a lot more time outside and less time sitting at home.With all of this extra activity, I get less time to read and less time to blog.

Tonight, I plan to get caught up on a few blog entrees, please excuse the multiple posts.


Blessings for the morning by Susie Larson

Susan Larson is a popular radio show host whose Biblical teaching helps strengthen people faith. I was very excited to get this book as I love listening to her radio show. This book is filled with quick blessings/devotions paired with a Bible verse. I found this book up lifting and points the day in the right direction. The words are soothing. Its good to keep in these are short passages that help focuses your day but it’s not a full devotional.

I found this book uplifting and enjoyable.

On a scale of 1-5 bookends, I give this book a 5.
