This is our list of recommended “real food” books, documentaries, and cookbooks. Some of the cookbooks do require recipe substitutions (like whole-wheat flour instead of all purpose flour) in order to not break the “real food” rules. …scroll down for cookbooks! -

    Your website is terrific. Just curious why you don’t have any of Jamie Oliver’s cookbooks?

    Hi Wendy. There are so many great cookbooks out there! We love Jamie Oliver, too. :) His Ted Talk is one of my favorite resources for getting families thinking about what we feed our kids. ~Amy

    I am a little confused about rice. I read in your cookbook that of course you should stick with brown rice over white rice. But it says to steer clear of Basmati and Jasmine rice…but I buy brown Basmati rice. Is that okay? I thought it still retains the bran…

    I am so glad I bought Lisa’s book. I have been on a journey toward healthier food for a while. I have been reading her book and was so pleased when she shared that she had made “mistakes” in the name of eating healthy and then exposed some of those fallacies. I was making some of them and really appreciate her help. I have tried some of the recipes and got my hubby to eat them. We are not quite at the point of doing the total pledge, but we have started on the mini pledges and my hubby is on board with them-yeah!!! Thank you so much!
    I am wondering, has anyone got some resources for finding non-stick baking pans. I am looking specifically for bread pans and muffins pans. Thanks so much.
