Dr. Larinde’s Latest Book available on Amazon

Habits around eating affect our life in more ways than we can imagine. This leading edge book gives you specific steps, including a 7-Day Meal Plan and recipes to get you started on your path to discovering a new approach to the way you think about and behave around food.

This relatable and reader-friendly book is a compilation of professional perspectives, personal experiences, and academic research over three generations combined with the research behind a Ph.D. Encompassing a wide array of places, faces, towns, cuisines, and innovative family recipes, the theme running throughout each generation and dovetailing in this book illustrates how common sense and intuition become our guide, influence, and major ally in the choices, decisions, and ultimately our daily habits which determine the quality of our life. Change is possible when we are willing to bring our awareness to lifelong patterns that no longer serve us and understand we have the ability to replace them with new healing habits.

With a focus on food, mental and emotional well-being, and physical movement, you will be guided through concrete steps with a meal plan, recipes, and journaling instructions to shift your current state into one of balance, ease, and dignity.
