This book did cause me to read labels more closely. Leake's mantra is five ingredients or less on processed foods, which is rare. I haven't resorted to making my own bread crumbs as she does, but I did choose the four-ingredient panko crumbs over the multi-line list of ingredients in the type I normally buy. Her suggestions require planning and extra time in the kitchen and at the supermarket (unless you live next door to a whole foods store).

This is the book version of her excellent blog. I recommend reading Michael Pollan's book, In Defense of Food, first, and then use this book for help with implementing his advice.

honestly I might not be agreed with here but this book is kinda lame. HALF of this book is fluffy filler with highly repetitive information taken from other well known books (as cited).
The other half is semi-interesting whole grain style recipes. Meh honestly it's not something worth getting especially if you have to wait 4 months like I did.

Very inspirational. A family overhauls their diet. They pledge to go 100 days without eating highly processed or refined foods. I have changed my eating habits dramatically since reading this book!

Practical advice, recipes that your family will actually eat, and ingredients that are commonly available. Love this cookbook and this approach to food!

I would recommend everyone read this book to just learn about her thoughts on eliminating processed foods from your diet, even if you don't agree with her. She does have some wonderful recipes in here. I suggest trying out these recipes: the best whole chicken in the crockpot and her homemade chicken stock. It's so easy to make with a whole chicken and tastes Great!

It is difficult to choose a singular star-rating for this book, so I'll break it down into 2 ratings.

5-stars: For those who are new to the "Real Food Movement" and or are researching the benefits of Real, Wholesome Foods, this book is excellent. There is lots of information of both the health and environmental benefits, as well as good recipes.

2-stars: For those who have embraced the "Real Food Movement", there is nothing new in this book. Even the recipes are all basic dishes our family makes on a daily basis.

I highly recommend this to those who are new to real food, but for those who are looking for new recipes to enhance their menus, I advice passing on this book.
