" I wouldn love to win this ebook. I have been overwhelmed with my hectic life and as a result I haven't had the time to sit down and figure out all this clean eating business. I eat fresh and raw every day but I know I am missing so much. I am not even sure what classifies as a "superfood" so I couldn't even give you a favorite. i appreciate teh blog link even if I don't end up winning because it seems like it will be a wonderful resource. "
Thanks to everyone who entered!!
Now I know some of you are familiar with Meghan Telpner and her wonderful blog Making Love in the Kitchen because I link to it on occasion and have recommended it to many of you in the past for the recipes or health and healing information.
I have been reading Meghan's blog for over a year now and look forward to the daily inspiration to lead a health conscious lifestyle. She writes on a wide variety of topics including recipes, superfoods, cleansing, disease prevention, holistic healing, and more in a friendly and easy to understand way. Needless to say if you follow my journey at all this is right up my alley! I encourage all of you to check out her site.
Meghan also has self published a series of E-Tutorials on many topics such as low glycemic eating, a green smoothie cleanse, and a 5 days vegan guide. Almost every month she also hosts a challenge centered around one of them and provides support.
The exciting part is that her new tutorial on superfoods comes out today! It focuses on traditional superfoods as well as everyday superfoods and gives easy ways to incorporate them into a diet beyond blending into smoothies. The even more exciting part is that she is willing to give a free copy to one of you! That's right FREE. Here is more info from Meghan on the guide:
If food is what is making us sick in our society, what if we amp up our diets and use food to resolve the problem too. What if we looked at food as our fuel, as our medicine and made it easy, delicious, and so uber powerful that our body had no choice but to heal and repair itself? That is what this tutorial is about.
The more I began to learn about the healing properties of these superfoods, the more of them I wanted in my diet. What was missing for me, in everything I was reading, was the inherent lack of practicality. Some might argue that being able to throw everything into a blender, stir it together, and drink your meal down is the ultimate in practical. True, it might be for some people. But what about the people who have families to feed, who want to sit down to a meal with others, who get genuine pleasure from being in the kitchen and finding creative ways to blend raw superfoods, cooked superfoods and plain old whole, unprocessed foods into delicious meals? That is where this tutorial comes in.
I will show you how to incorporate these superfoods into your everyday eating.

• The Definition of a Superfood

These tutorials use humour and simplicity making them enjoyable to read and approachable to incorporate into everyday eating.
