    I rarely log ‘cook books’ on here but this one deserves a mention. A really lovely little hardback book full of self care tips and awesome recipes. Lots to read with really genuinely helpful self care tips rather than the stuff we all know as being common sense. Especially good tips for those with insomnia issues. Also that rare find in a cookery/lifestyle book in which I would like to make and enjoy every single recipe rather than just one or two.

    Healthy, beautiful recipes peppered with simple self-care tips. I savored this cookbook from cover to cover and that, in and of itself, felt like an act of self-care. I visualized myself making the recipes and imagined what it would taste like and feel like to include these healthier foods and practices in my life. I was charmed that a “glug” is a unit of measurement used, as in a glug of olive oil; that you “blitz” things in the blender; and that 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons showed up in several Healthy, beautiful recipes peppered with simple self-care tips.

Gem has a cute and quirky style as well as a wealth of knowledge surrounding the benefits of eating certain foods. Now all I have to do is incorporate all this into my life…and take a trip to Brighton to check out Gem’s Wholesome Kitchen.

    Last week when I picked this book up from the library I had no idea how much I was going to need it in the upcoming week. A perfect book for an ‘imperfect’ time! Such an uplifting book on how to care for yourself and to cook recipes full of healthy ingredients to nurture one’s self. It’s certainly not just a cookbook! I highly recommend it for anyone after surviving 2020!😁

    Unusual to have a cookbook as a goodreads book. But this one had a lot of interesting information on wellbeing, including restore, rebalance, reflect and renew and I read it from cover to cover. The recipes look simple and tasty. Inspiring for the start of the new year.

    Some lovely recipes, but otherwise very run-of-the-mill and filled with cliche phrasing. I love the idea of this book and did learn some interesting things; but ultimately this was very repetitive and in turn monotonous.

    Fabulous recipes and gorgeous pictures! Also, bonus: the book is small and feels nice to hold.

    It was like reading a book alongside a best friend! The way Gemma separates the book into sections based on category (EX: rest, energy, renewal) really helped to tailor the recipes and self care tips to what I needed in the moment! Her quirky, personal writing still made this more like a conversation when you needed a friend, and it felt way more than just about recipes. I have already added her recipes into my routine and turn to them when I need a pick me up!

    I like cooking impressive dishes when I have the time and energy, but usually impressive means making special grocery trips. More and more these days, I crave simplicity. Gemma's pantry closely resembles mine and her colorful, healthy, plant-based dishes show you can cook simply with stunning results. This little cookbook is packed with love and nourishment, including (again, simple yet impactful) bits of self care wisdom.

    Love this book! It’s not just a cookbook, it has a lot of useful information, ideas, and reminders. I actually did sit and read this through cover to cover - and I love how it’s structured. Instead of the meal or food type, it’s broken out based on “self care themes” - for lack of a better way to describe it. I can’t wait to try some of these out this week, it’s the perfect book for resetting eating after the holidays and to get some energy back.

    DNF @ page 62 While this is a beautiful little (literally) book, it offers nothing new on the self-care front. The recipes look interesting, but not enough to entice me to finish the book. I mentioned that the book is beautiful, and it is distractingly and painfully so. What is the fascination with 8-point font and books with form that handicaps the function? /rant

    Nicely written and put together This book is divided into five sections, including restore, TLC and reflect; each section includes information on self care tips, advice and recipes. I think it's a nice idea for a book and I enjoyed reading it. I haven't made any of the recipes yet but I plan to.

    More than just a cookbook - some lovely tidbits and encouragements along the way. I tried some of the recipes, and can't say I have the magical touch she has with food; however, it was a very enjoyable read.
