(LOS ANGELES) -- Actress Jessica Alba can now add author to her resume. The 30-year-old is set to release The Honest Life, a how-to book on how to live a non-toxic life.
"I'm not extreme. This book is for people who are in the middle but want to create a healthier life, like me," Alba told People.
The book shares design and beauty tips along with family recipes and do-it-yourself projects. "It will be easy and fun and I want it to be really colorful," Alba says. "I'm a crazy foodie. I love doing projects with my kids. Everything in this book will be something meaningful that I've incorporated into our lives. I wanted some kind of handbook with all the information I was consuming so I could apply it in a practical way."
The Honest Life is set to hit bookstore shelves in 2013.
