But how can you control your weight and health without sacrificing great food and gorgeous curves?

With attitude, inspiration, and expertise, inBy Any Greens NecessaryMcQuirter shows women how to stay healthy, hippy, and happy by eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes as part of an active lifestyle. The book is a call to action that all women should heed.
