If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure~ Book Review

"In If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure , bestselling author and speaker Sheri Rose Shepherd encourages you to embark on a new adventure with faith and food." Sheri shares the tips that have helped her lose over 50 pounds.
This book is consists of 15 chapters that each begin with a "Craving"________.  Chapter One is Craving More Energy.  The format of the book is different than I expected.  Each chapter is formatted the same starting  with a personal bit about Sheri. Next is "Soul Food" which is a scripture verse that is relevant to the topic. "New Life Recipes" are everyday practical tips for you to try. This is followed by "Power Up With Prayer" and a "Food Truth" with the Food Truth of Chapter One being "No food..... is as satisfying as the energy to enjoy life." Each chapter concludes with actual recipes.
This book is a quick and easy read. I expected more Sheri Stories but I was surprised that she kept them brief and not to deep. Did I mention that there are over 100 recipes in this book as well? The recipes sound very inviting and are not filled with processed ingredients. I can't wait to try a few. I would recommend this book to anyone that has struggled with weight loss or food addictions.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
