spoon fed

2. SPOON-FED - Tim Spector

Why almost everything we’ve been told about food is wrong!
Spoon-Fed reveals why almost everything we've been told about food is wrong. Spector explores the scandalous lack of good science behind many medical and government food recommendations, and how the food industry holds sway over these policies and our choices.

A groundbreaking book that forces us to question every diet plan, official recommendation, miracle cure or food label we encounter, and encourages us to rethink our whole relationship with food.


magic of food

3. The Magic of Food - Michael T Murray

From “a pioneer in alternative health” (Dr. Oz), doctor of natural medicine, and the co-author of the Encyclopedia of Healing Foods and The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine comes this accessible and comprehensive eating plan based on his extensive knowledge of food as medicine to promote optimum health.

Food affects our body, mind, and health in many remarkable ways. And certain foods work together in ways that are almost magical. In this groundbreaking new eating plan, Michael Murray, ND, identifies foods that act together to produce a total effect or force that is greater than the sum of the individual foods—what is known as a synergetic effect. Research shows there’s a tremendous synergetic effect that the healing force of nature exerts through each food and each food component. As the foods work together, they improve your energy and your physical and mental health.
