Hi, I'm Sabra.

I'm a writer, editor, marketer, wife, friend and new mom. And I wanna talk about all of it with you. Honestly. So, let's do this.

3 Green-Living Books Worth Adding to Your Library

I got the first round of layouts for this year's edition of Green Hawaii: A 32-Page Guide to Living a Greener Life this week, and boy am I thrilled. It's looking awesome! I can't reveal any of it yet, but let's just say visual elements include a rooster, a woman carrying a torso-sized tube of sunscreen and a giant sledgehammer-wielding bicep sticking out of an oven. In the meantime, I want to share a few of the  books I'm recommending in the magazine's media section. Each of these gems is worth a coveted spot on your library shelf (or, better yet, in the queue of your e-reader).

1. "Crazy Sexy Kitchen: 15o Plant-Empowered Recipes to Ignite a Mouthwatering Revolution," by Kris Carr Kris makes living a plant-strong lifestyle fun, exciting and incredibly delicious. Try the Chickpea and Root Vegetable Tagine. It's like a fireworks show for the taste buds.

And check out Kris's website, too. Her email newsletter is one of the few I subscribe to.

2. "Go Green, Spend Less, Live Better: The Ultimate Guide to Saving the Planet, Saving Money and Protecting Your Health," by Crissy Trask Trask shows you how to make saving money and saving the planet a win-win. Some of these tips are new, some of them aren't, but all of them are useful.

3." Plastic Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can, Too", by Beth Terry. The more I read, the more I'm convinced that plastic has just got to go. But considering how many things we use daily contain it, it's a really hard thing to give up. Terry's tips make it a little easier. This one's endorsed by Jack Johnson and his wife, Kim. A lot of people don't know it, but one of their foundation's key missions is helping Hawaii's people live plastic free. Love them!
