Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings What a positive take on nutrition and health!  Jennifer Adler starts her book with her story which didn't start out in the must nutritious of ways (which gives hope for the rest of us!).  Then she talks about all the different things that good food can help you do better.  I love books with practical advice that I feel like one trip to the grocery store could help change a few things and then little by little could make my eating and things better. I made a list on my phone of the power foods that she suggested and have purchased two and incorporated them into my daily/weekly routine.  Kafir and miso.  I heard about Kafir before from a co worker and how it helps with digestion and such and purchased just one bottle and take a healthy swig at night and I actually see a difference!  Miso - not a purchase for the home, but have since reading the book, tried to have two bowls of miso soup a week and I love the soup, but am still working on getting into the home and into the routine.  I don't feel overwhelmed and after tackling these two am ready to add some more things to the list to build a healthier pantry and fridge!
