Book Review: The Earth Diet by Liana Werner-Gray



I think you all know by now, that I am a bit of a fan of all things Hay House, and its wonderful authors. They offer every possible resource for self-improvement, self-awareness, and spiritual growth.

Because I work from a home office, I am able to listen to Hay House Radio all day. When a new author, Liana Werner-Gray was added to the weekly lineup, I was immediately hooked. Her beautiful Australian accent, upbeat attitude, and honesty about how her junk food addiction and subsequent illness led to writing The Earth Diet, make her a delight to listen to. She provides fantastic tips and recipes for living a better lifestyle through healthy eating.



Recently on Instagram, I commented on a Hay House UK post that she was pictured in. I mentioned how much I loved her show. She replied back, which was a wonderful surprise! We chatted a bit and I mentioned my struggle with sugar addiction. She suggested I call into her show, which I did the following week.

Along with some fantastic advice on replacing refined sugar with healthy alternatives, she sent me a copy of The Earth Diet and some yummy, healthy, chocolate samples from Raw Chocolate Man.



Liana's book is FANTASTIC! It is not just a cookbook. It includes her story of curing herself of a tumor at 21 years old, caused by unhealthy eating. Her mom also used The Earth Diet to heal advanced breast cancer. She provides vegetarian, vegan and meat eater recipes. She also provides recipes for baths, toothpaste, teeth whitener, deodorant, air freshener, household cleaners and more. 

First, I made her three ingredient Raw Chocolate Balls to curb my sugar addiction. They are healthy, super easy to make, and delicious! For organic, healthy ingredients, I shopped at Vitacost.com. Their prices are already up to 50% off, and I was able to get an extra 10% off with her special coupon code: earthdiet (and yes, it will still work if you want to shop too!). The items arrived quickly and shipping is free on purchases over $49. 



I've made my own organic almond milk too. It's another super easy recipe with only two ingredients, is very healthy and tastes great. You can make it with or without the almond skin. My first attempt was with the skin and it tastes fine, just not as smooth as without. Cows milk, honestly, has been grossing me out lately with what's in it and how the cows are treated. The almond milk that I've found in the supermarket is loaded with sugar and other ingredients. Making it myself is easy and healthier. I've used the milk by itself and also in Liana's shake and smoothie recipes.



I've also tried the Fat Blaster Juice and Green Juice. It's the first time I ever used a juicer and it was fun! I was surprised how much juice I could get out of a single orange! She has a bunch of juice recipes, and I plan to try them all. There are also lots of recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, desserts and more.


I highly recommend this book because there is so much goodness packed into it, and the recipes are delicious and easy to make. Liana lists so many of the unhealthy foods and products in our environment, and provides easy ways to replace them. Choosing real products from this beautiful Earth is the way to go, and Liana and The Earth Diet show us the way!
