Sheri Rose Shepherd takes us on a journey with faith and food in her new book If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure. She provides us with many tips that she used to lose 50 pounds. Each chapter includes tips, ideas, scriptures and great recipes. Sheri also includes some gluten free and raw food recipes. So many of the recipes sound delicious and I cannot wait to try them!
This book was a very quick read and was very different than what I thought it was going to be. I had envisioned this book to be more of a biography where Sheri discussed her hardships and explained how she overcame them. Sheri did not dig deep into her personal life but instead provided information on how to overcome some of the struggles many of us encounter. For example, the second chapter provides information regarding rest and relaxation. Sheri talks about taking a vacation from our worries and giving our bodies the rest that they need. Recipes for this chapter include Potato Salad in the Raw and Corn Chowder.
Overall, I thought this was a good book that could be read as a weekly devotional. I think it would be fun to read a chapter each week and then try out the recipes. With the New Year quickly approaching, some may find this book helpful if they are looking to incorporate some healthy recipes and maybe even lose a few pounds.
