The blog site for Martha Char Love, author of "Mom's Island Bakens: Over 50 Altered Recipes For a Happy Gut and a Healthy Heart". There are over 50 original recipes in this book and all are very delicious and healthy foods—many entire meals. The recipes that I have included are from my personal collection that I have created over a 40-year span of time and that I refined to healthy versions for gut and heart over the years to reflect modern knowledge about excellent nutrition and well-being.
Review by Co-Host Ken Weene of Mom's Island Bakens:
Anybody here not like to eat?
admit it; I like to eat and I love tasty food. The problem is that
nagging worry about health. You know the one, the one asking will this
be healthy for me as well as tasty? Eating well — not just delicious
but healthy — requires a lifestyle change for most people. Martha Char
Love tries to help with Mom’s Island Bakens. It isn’t just the over
fifty recipes in the book that are helpful, there are chapters about how
to alter recipes in general, for example some advice on how to lower
the glycemic index and how to balance acidity and alkalinity. She offers
specific recipes for specific problems such as poor sleeping and
jetlag. Martha also gives tips for cleaning your kitchen without using
neither a nutritionist nor a chemist, Love condenses a lot of useful
information into her book, much as she encourages her readers to pack
nutrient density into their food. This is a book for people who care
what they put into their guts and that is certainly something for all of
us to care about.
