Livwise: Easy Recipes for a Healthy Happy Life by Olivia Newton-John

by |May 5, 2011

Olivia Newton-John is a woman who radiates health, positivity and wellbeing. She is often asked, ‘how do you do it?’

In Livwise, Olivia explains her belief in the importance of eating a healthy diet in order to maintain wellness and balance. This book will introduce you to ways of eating and living that will keep you in good health and happiness.

These simple, wholesome, tasty recipes are the ones Olivia loves to cook for her family — some created in her own kitchen and others contributed by friends and chefs at her Australian health retreat, Gaia.

From delicious salads and snacks to hearty mains and guilt-free desserts, the recipes in Livwise offer a perfect balance of flavour, goodness and vitality.

With a film and music career spanning more than four decades, Olivia is still a vibrant, star adored by fans around the world. As a breast cancer survivor (or cancer thriver as she prefers to say), Olivia is raising funds for The Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne. Her royalties from the sale of this book will go to the centre.
