Then you’ll want to read The Unhealthy Truth by Robyn O’Brien for answers – the book we mentioned to you earlier this week.Here’s why:
O’Brien turns to accredited research conducted in Europe that confirms the toxicity of America’s food supply, and traces the relationship between Big Food and Big Money that has ensured that the United States is one of the only developed countries in the world to allow hidden toxins in our food–toxins that can be blamed for the alarming recent increases in allergies, ADHD, cancer, and asthma among our children.
What I really appreciated about her book was her genuine helpful approach that comes across throughout each chapter as she puts a spotlight on a vareity of food issues that are important to so many parents. And she doesn’t stop there – she also includes advice on how to take simple steps to smarter choices that we can make for our own children.
I also like her realistic perspective on living with this new knowledge:
Target the 80/20 rule, as I highlight in the book: do as much as you can to try to reduce your families’ exposure to these substances 80 percent of the time, then give yourself a ‘free pass’ for the other 20. Instead of blue yogurt, opt for white yogurt and add sprinkles. Chances are that these baby steps are going to feel so good that you will want to do more. There is a lot that we can do to protect the health of our families, we just have to get savvy about it!
While we’d love to say we eat healthy 100% of the time, let’s be real here – we don’t. I don’ t always know where our food comes from when we go out, when my kids are at school or at friend’s house, or other events. My philosophy is to do my best when I influence our food, and don’t give in to more mommy guilt when I’m not in control.Our percentage probably fluctuates each week, depending on what’s going on.
If you’re ready to learn more about the toxins in our food supply, you’re in luck. Robyn and her publisher were anxious to share a copy of her book with our Feed Our Families community (we’re not BFF’s but run in shared circles).So…
