Jessica Alba is set to release ‘The Honest Life’, a how-to handbook based on her mission of creating a natural, non-toxic life for her family.

“It’s totally crazy but amazing,” the People magazine quoted her as saying of her book.

“I’m not extreme. This book is for people who are in the middle but want to create a healthier life, like me,” she said.

The actress recently launched her first business, ‘The Honest Company’, with business partner and co-author Christopher Gavigan.

The 30-year-old’s book will detail her life as a mother and entrepreneur, seeking to give her children, Honor, 3 and Haven, 7 months, a better and safer start in life.

The Honest Life will offer tips on how to create a non-toxic home, from design tips to some of Alba’s favorite family recipes.

“Honor’s favorite meatball recipe will be in there,” she said.

“And I always hide flax seeds in everything,” she explained, keeping it healthy but still tasty for her two girls.

The book will also include beauty tips including “homemade” treatments to incorporate into your routine.

Among them: simple, fun DIY family projects (Alba and husband Cash Warren refinished furniture for daughter Haven’s room), tips on making sure your home is filled with only the purest of materials and inexpensive ways to find your own authentic style.

“It will be easy and fun and I want it to be really colorful,” she said.

“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,” she added.
