Beyond Labels: A Doctor and a Farmer Conquer Food Confusion One Bite at a Time (Paperback)
A nutritionist and a renowned organic farmer explore and explain the art of eating well.
Do you want to be healthy, happy and free? But find yourself stuck in your healing journey and want some guidance and encouragement? Perhaps you are overwhelmed by all of the conflicting diet advice. Maybe you don't know where to start or who to trust. Or, maybe you just need a little motivation.
You're not alone. We're constantly bombarded with ever-changing diet recommendations and the latest diet crazes: Paleo, Keto, Whole 30, Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and the list goes on. Eggs are bad one day and good the next. Kale is good for you today. Tomorrow it contains high levels of thallium and is toxic to your thyroid gland. How do you know what to put on your plate that will bring you toward greater health and wellness?
In Beyond Labels, Joel Salatin, a farmer who is blazing the trail for regenerative farm practices, and Sina McCullough, a Ph.D. in Nutrition who actually understands unpronounceable carbon chains, bring you on a journey from generally unhealthy food and farming to an ultimately healing place.
Through compelling discussions leavened with a dose of humor, they share practical and easily doable tips about:
- What to eat
- How to find it and prepare it
- How to save money and time in the kitchen
- How to stay true to your principles in our modern culture
Whether you are just starting your health journey or you grow all of your own food, this book is designed to meet you where you are and motivate you to take the next step in your healing journey - ultimately bringing you closer to health, happiness, and freedom.
"The ideas, evidence and takeaways from this book have the power to reshape America's declining health. This is the most-fascinating, inspirational, and flat out most useful book I've ever read. Joel and Sina have done what no other authors have managed to do. They've created a survival guide for the war on our gut microbiome." -Andy Snyder, Founder of Manward Press

She was the Director of R&D for a supplement company and taught Biochemistry and Bioenergetics at UC Davis.
