Rich Food Poor Food – Book Review and Giveaway – CLOSED

Congrats to the winner! Stephanie L!


How many of you read the nutritional facts on the products you buy?  Up until last week, I didn’t.  I honestly didn’t really think about what our family was eating.   Last week I started a nutritional diet (which I will share more about tomorrow) and I became aware of what “Rich Food Poor Food” is.  It has taken some time to get a grasp of everything but I am learning something new every day.  I received the Rich Food Poor Food book to review at the perfect time.  It helps explain why we shouldn’t be eating many of the foods that are ending up in our shopping carts.

Jayson Calton, PhD and Mira Calton, CN authored the book Rich Food Poor Food, to help open our eyes and educate us on these foods.  This book is the ultimate grocery purchasing system (GPS)!  It will help everyone shop smart, shop healthy, save time and save money, all the while avoiding harmful ingredients.

Do you know about GMO’s (Genetically Modified Ingredients)?  These are ingredients that are added to aspartame, molasses, sucrose, yeast products and so much more.  Reading the Rich Food Poor Food book is a like a blue print for the grocery store.

The book will walk you through with easy to spot icons such as the Make Cents pig which will offer cash-conserving suggestions for your health.  Fun facts with the Food for Thought icon, Steer Clear (which states exactly that) and Checkout Checklist to list a few.  The layout and pictures come to life in this book.  It’s one of those books you want to pick up and read from cover to cover.

It will take you aisle through aisle of your grocery store.  You NEED this book to navigate away from the bad and towards the good.  I am thrilled to have received this book for review the week before I started looking for those healthy foods.  I have been re-reading some of it because it is so informative.  It is packed with great info!

I should note it’s Paleo friendly and Wheat free.  We all need education in this area and you will receive it in Rich Food Poor Food.
