One Simple Change: Surprisingly Easy Ways to Transform Your Life + Giveaway

Share This

Hey friends, I am super excited to have my friend Winnie Abramson of Healthy Green Kitchen joining us today to talk about her brand new book, One Simple Change: Surprisingly Easy Ways to Transform Your Life.  I started reading this amazing book during the holiday break and although I haven’t finished it completely yet, as I am really trying to take it slow, take it all in and implement as much of it as I can into my own life, I already cannot recommend it enough! Winnie did an incredible job creating an easy to read, easy to implement list of 50 simple, but permanent healthy changes we can bring to our lives to improve our everyday well-being. From age-old culinary wisdom to green living tips, cutting-edge nutrition information, and 15 simple and easy recipes. You can take in the entire book at once and dive right into all the changes, you could work through the tips week by week or just dip in and out of the book at will. Either way, you will be left inspired to be the best you can after even just a few pages of reading.


One Simple Change

I am so honored Beth invited me to guest post here on Tasty Yummies. She asked me to share a bit about why I wrote my new book One Simple Change. I was happy to oblige!

When it comes to matters of health, our society is pretty obsessed with the concept of quick fixes. There’s also a great deal of pressure out there to take various eating and lifestyle practices to extremes. I understand the temptation to jump on the latest diet, exercise, etc. bandwagon (especially at this time of year), I really do…heck I’ve done that myself in the past.

My inspiration for writing One Simple Change, however, was to provide a different way of doing things…I wanted to pave an alternative health and happiness path, if you will. When I was younger, I dealt with disordered eating and over exercising and I ended up miserable with a host of health problems as a result.  Now I live a life that’s balanced and full of joy (and at 43 years old, I have never been healthier or happier): I wanted to share how I got to where I am today, and that’s why I wrote this book.

Much of One Simple Change is indeed based on my experiences making changes in my own life. But it’s also heavily influenced by what I learned in naturopathic medical school (and practice) and my recommendations are backed by scientific research (the book is heavily referenced). The book is a compilation of 50 small, sustainable ways you can transform your diet, adjust your lifestyle, and overhaul your attitude in order to benefit your health and well-being. A good portion of the book is also meant to inspire readers to live greener, a topic about which I am passionate.

Small changes can really add up. And when you take things slow and change only one thing at a time, the changes are more likely to stick! I hope you’ll check out the book, and give my “method” a try.

    So excited to read this book!

  2. I changed me breakfast 5 years ago from a chocolat laden sandwich and tea to a fruit based breakfast (smoothie or oatmeal with lots of fruit) and a glass of warm water. Cleared up my eczema spots!

  3. I have still yet to read this! I would LOVE a copy.

    Winnie you’re the best.

    One easy and simple healthy habit I do is to squeeze a juice of a half a lemon in a glass of water first thing in the morning.

    “43 and never been healthier or happier” – sign me up! I’ve been struggling with chronic migraines for a couple of years now and at 40 I’m in the worst health I’ve ever been. Changing my perspective on what “healthy” really means has put me back on the path to happiness. Thank you for the opportunity to learn from your journey, Winnie! I’m looking forward to reading all about it! A free copy would be such a bonus!

    And thank you, Beth – seeing your blog arrive in my inbox brightens my day!

    I have started drinking warm water with lemon in the morning instead of coffee and it is amazing how much better I feel.

  12. katklaw777 says:

  13. kathy says:

    this is such a great giveaway!! 🙂

  14. Agricola Bedard says:

    This book sounds great! I have made it a must to spend at least an hour to myself, whether that be working out, my early morning yoga or just slowing down to smell the roses. Being a 27 yr old mom of two little ones and a step mom to 3 grown boys, this has done wonders for me!

    • Agricola Bedard says:

      I am also on the Organic band wagon… My husband suffers from hep C so the changes have been paramount just from switching to organics, not to mention cutting out the processed junk:)

  15. Alicia says:

    cleaner food and more homemade everything!

  16. Ali F says:

    I do oil pulling each morning with coconut oil. And then I have a big mug of warm water with lemon and ACV to get my day started!

  17. Bonnie Sanders says:

    At the start of this year I get up and exercise immediately after brushing my teeth. Both a good habit! Thanks for the chance to win. Love your blog Beth and just signed up to start getting Winnie’s blog updates too. Thanks for the introduction. The book looks like something that would be so helpful, would love to win it!

  18. Sherri says:

    I juice most every day.
    The book looks very interesting.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

  19. gail says:

    Starting the day with a cup of hot water. Nice giveaway – thank you!

  20. Robin Barker says:

    Drinking water first thing in the morning to clear out my system and drinking only water and green tea throughout the day.

  21. Stephanie says:

    I’ve found that small changes are easier to incorporate and maintain. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  22. Rachel Abram says:

    I began juicing twice a day and now I cannot go without it. I feel energized and they fill you up so you avoid eating bad foods.

  23. Good luck with your yoga teacher certification, Beth! I’m loving all of these guest post. This book seems SO useful and interesting!
