I couldn't put this book down! It's packed full of research and information, but it's not boring! It's so engaging that I finished reading it in 2 days! Everyone needs to read this book!!! It's eye opening and inspiring. My trips to the grocery store are totally different now. Thank you for writing this book!

This book is empowering. It doesn't drone on and on about the problem and then leave you feeling overwhelmed and helpless. It tells you the problem - backed by nearly 50 pages of references. But, it also offers SIMPLE solutions that anyone can do while at the grocery store, eating out, or cooking at home. I love her uplifting story of how she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease (caused by food) but was able to reverse it! Also, I like how the book doesn't just focus on chemicals in our food. It also talks about how our tax dollars are used to make unhealthy food cheap and abundant. And, how the food guide pyramid has changed our perception of food, which is stealing our freedom and making us sick. My favorite part of the book is how she doesn't try to convince you that what you are eating is bad for you or that you shouldn't eat processed foods, GMOs, growth hormones, etc. She is not placing judgement. Instead, she is encouraging all of us to figure out our own core principles and then "consciously speak with your dollars." In other words, know what you are saying with your dollars; know what and who you are supporting. This book is eye-opening and it's easy to read. She took complex topics and made them both easy to understand and interesting. I love her conversational style. It's unique and refreshing. A must read!
