The 20/20 Diet Cookbook – Lola Berry

December 4, 2014

Lola Berry is a passionate Australian dedicated to spreading innovative ideas about healthy and delicious foods.

In true Aussie fashion, it’s Lola’s mission to become the Steve Irwin of fruit and veges. She says that the main purpose of food is to nourish the body as well as to share and enjoy with loved ones.

Lola sparked her love for nutritious food. She hadn’t focused on her health and was feeling unenergetic in her body – so she decided to go on a detox. She felt radical positive differences in her body and mind after feeding herself with healthy foods. Lola then qualified as a nutritionist and, in time, a yoga teacher. She’s a true wholesome babe.

Lola is very active on social media – Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

The 20/20 Diet Cookbook Itself

The 20/20 Diet Cookbook is Lola’s third book and this cookbook is an extension of her book The 20/20 Diet in which she shares health tips around how she lost 20 kilograms in 20 weeks.

Recipes in The 20/20 Diet Cookbook are:

  • Gluten free
  • Wheat free
  • Sugar free

There is something in this cookbook for everyone. From the start of the book, Lola identifies that we all have different goals and different preferences when it comes to food.

Lola emphasises that she used mindfulness and creativity in the kitchen. You’ve got to use your senses and enjoy what feels nice, smells nice, looks nice and tastes nice.

Like most cookbooks, Lola goes through common ingredients and utensils. One of the main ingredients on the list is – your smile. Having a positive approach to cooking will help to improve mindsets around health.
