Overview

True Food: Eight Simple Steps to a Healthier You by Annie B. Bond, Melissa Breyer, Wendy Gordon

"True food nourishes us physically and emotionally, in ways profound, beyond basic sustenance."

National Geographic invites you to experience a culinary epiphany with True Food: 8 Simple Steps to a Healtier You, an enlightening, altogether indispensable guide to a naturally healthy, globally sustaining approach to the foods you eat—and the life you live.

Clear, comprehensive, and engaging chapters introduce eight simple steps that can start you and your family on the road to a healthier life. Informative text supported by in-depth research guides you through the confusing choices and conflicting information that sometimes clutter the path.

Serving up a la carte inspiration in a number of ways this book offers "True Tips"—clever ideads, helpful definitions, and new ideas on how to shop, cook, and eat more wisely; "Snapshots" of individuals, from the famous to the not-so-famous, who have embraced a sustainable lifestyle; and features on "Shopping & Saving," "Fun, Kids, Pleasure," and "Simple Stewardship"—resourceful ways to engage the entire family and help you make informed, Earth-friendly choices every day.

Mouthwashing recipes that highlight fresh, seasonal ingredients will further wet you appetite for what the authors call sustainable eating.

Full of ideas as basic as choosing fresh, local foods and as innovative as cleaning your kitchen with natural ingredients, this book demonstrates how surprisingly easy, immeasurably important, and scrumptiously fun it is to choose, prepare, share, and enjoy true food.
