We’ve all had those days when we’re just trying to hold it all together. But when “one of those days” turns into weeks, then months, then longer, you start to feel like you’re drowning. Your immune system goes haywire, your sleep schedule goes out the window, and your brain feels like it’s turning to mush. You know that something has to change, but when you’re spending all your energy just trying to keep your head above water, change feels impossible.

If this sounds like you, From Burnout to Balance is here to be your life preserver. Patricia Bannan, MS, RDN, has been where you are now and knows how to break the cycle. She offers:

• compassion, stories, support, and guidance to break the cycle
• tips and shortcuts to make your life easier
• week-long meal plans for each symptom
• more than 60 delicious recipes that combine the vital nutrients your body needs to combat burnout

If spending time and energy on meal plans and cooking sounds like the last thing you want to do, know that the recipes are designed for simplicity and the book is packed with tips and shortcuts to make your life easier. Recipes include vegan, one-dish, kid-friendly, freezable, and 15-minutes or less options, and time-saving tricks like “Nearly No-Cook” meals will get nourishing food on the table with nothing more than some savvy pantry picks. From gut health to mental health, there are no strict rules to follow—just a guiding hand reaching out to help bring balance back into your life.
