NOURISH Cookbook Review

Spread the love


Lorna Jane Clarkson is an active wear designer that has grown to be so much more.  Her philosophy and daily mantra of  Active Living  has not only allowed her to get more out of life but it has resonated with so many of us who are trying to better our lives from the inside out.

Active Living can be summed up in 3 words: MOVE, NOURISH, BELIEVE.  Move your body everyday. Nourish your body with delicious food. Believe anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.

And that leads us to her amazing new cookbook: NOURISH – The Fit Woman’s Cookbook.

NOURISH is so much more than a cookbook.  It’s a collection of everything Lorna Jane has learned on her own journey in nourishing her body.  Inside you’ll find inspirational quotes, alkaline & acidic foods, mouthwatering recipes, seasonal eating recommendations, and thoughts on hydration, good digestion, and dieting.

Now that you have a little insight to Lorna Jane – let’s talk about the recipes!


There are 122 recipes in total which break down as follows:

  • 9 Elixirs & Tonics
  • 15 Breakfasts
  • 9 Smoothies
  • 18 Snacks
  • 17 Lunches
  • 15 Dinners
  • 16 Desserts
  • 4 Basic Recipes
  • 19 Dressings, Sauces & Sides

I love that she incorporated elixirs and tonics and I’ve already tried my hand at her Immunity Tonic – here’s the recipe:

I also tried my hand at one of her four green smoothies and it was FANTASTIC!  Here’s the recipe:

LJ Green Smoothie 1Green Smoothie 1 Mild

In high-speed blender, blend 1.5 cups loosely packed baby spinach leaves, 1 coarsely chopped small banana, 1/2 peeled, cored and coarsely chopped medium ripe pear, 1 peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped small orange, 1/2 coarsely chopped Lebanese cucumber and 1/2 cup filtered water or coconut water until smooth. Serve in glass.

(Prep time is 5 minutes, serves 1, protein: 5.6 g, carbohydrates: 43.1 g, total fat: .7 g, fibre: 8 g)
