“Sally Fallon’s book is the perfect resource for anyone looking to raise healthy children in an unhealthy American culture. Every parent should own a copy of this book!!”
“Love this book refer to it daily especially for creating meals for my son. Can’t wait to use it for my next pregnancy. It has a whole section in the beginning of resourceful guidance I did not have access to when pregnant with my son.”
“Have Nourishing Traditions and got this when babe was on the way. So refreshing to see a real diet that doesn’t begin with Cheerios. Also, I have a low milk supply so loved that there was not just one, but about four recipes for a homemade formula! Saving my sanity to not have to supplement with the commercial lab crap on the market when I cannot get milk donated!”
“This book is a great product to help realize how to nourish not only new baby, but how to prepare to nourish yourself if you plan to conceive. A+”
