"For those battling autoimmune disease--or just seeking healthy life balance--the voice behind the popular blog Feed Me Phoebe shares her yearlong investigation of what truly made her well. After she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease in her early twenties, Phoebe Lapine felt overwhelmed by her doctor's strict protocols and confused when they directly conflicted with information on the bestseller list. After experiencing mixed results and a life of deprivation that seemed unsustainable at best, she adopted 12 of her own wellness directives--including eliminating sugar, switching to all-natural beauty products, and getting in touch with her spiritual side--to find out which lifestyle changes truly impacted her health for the better. The Wellness Project is the insightful and hilarious result of that year of exploration--part memoir and part health and wellness primer (complete with 20 healthy recipes), it's a must-read not just for those suffering from autoimmune disease, but for anyone looking for simple ways to improve their health without sacrificing life's pleasures"--Provided by publisher.

After being fed up with living with an auto-immune disease for several years, chef and blogger, Phoebe Lapine, takes a year to explore wellness. The book is an easy read and often humorous. Lapine’s voice is real and sincere and often times it read like her diary. I loved this book for taking a more balanced and experimental approach to wellness. Great read for anyone feeling frustrated with their body and/or lifestyle and looking for some lighthearted motivation to make changes.

This book may give some people ideas on how to clean up their lives with a better diet, switching to safer home and personal products, exercise suggestions, etc. The author writes about her own journey to be healthier. Most of the time the chatty style works well, but the book is a little too detailed. Here and there I found myself skipping over sections that didn't apply, or were just boring, but the rest of time it was interesting enough to keep on reading.
