My Top Ten Real Food Resources

 

With so much conflicting information out there, it is often hard to find peace with the way we eat.

My passion for health and wellness has led me to try many different things; including being a vegetarian for eight years (one day I’ll tell you why I gave that up). When I stumbled into the world of real food, I found something that made sense to me. Something just clicked.

Last year I got my basic nutritionist certification through Liberation Wellness.

Studying for this certification solidified many of the beliefs I’d been forming through reading and experience.

I’ve found a lot of peace as through learning about the history of food industry and the effects of different foods on the body. Most of this learning came through reading blogs and books dedicated to educating others about real food.

Today I’d like to share some of my favorites with you:

Blogs

100 Days of Real Food – Really inspiring and motivating to see a family commit to eating real food for 100 days (and now beyond).
Gnowfglins – Their e-course is excellent.
Kelly the Kitchen Kop – Very informative post about all things related to real food.
Keeper of the Home – This blog covers a lot more than real food. The real food information is thorough and well-researched.
Kitchen Stewardship – Katie does her research and questions everything. I love this because I know she is sharing honestly with her readers. She also has some excellent ebooks.
Food Renegade – Another blog that is full of detailed information about real food, including lots of information about what to eat and why.

  1. Looks like we have a very similar blog reading list! This is a great list for real food. Thanks for the new resources.

  2. I read Real Food for Mother and Baby by Nina Planck and it was amazing. As a nursing mother of an 11 month old, it was so inspiring to read how beneficial it is for babies to nurse longer than one year.
    I’m now reading her first book Real Food and just picked up my first carton of Whole Milk from grass fed cows.
    My other favorite book is The Unhealthy Truth by Robyn O’Brien. You can get the gist of her book from her TED talk as well.

  3. I loved The Unhealthy Truth By Robyn O”brien too and that was the first book I read on this journey to help my daughter with her mysterious illness (now suspected to be mitochondrial disease)…
    I also love “What’s eating your Child?” By Kelly Dorfman and FED UP by Sue Dengate…
    and a few more are here on my mommy book report list: http://babyfoodsteps.wordpress.com/booknook/
    Thanks for your resources I have not been to the Keeper of the Home blog…so looking forward to checking that one out!

  4. Yup, they are all great blogs. Cheeseslave is another one of my favourites as well. Thanks for posting the list as it’s nice to read what others found to be a good resource :) Keep up the good work!

  5. Have you read Trina’s book? http://www.trinaholden.com/p/real-fast-food.html
    I met her online and then in real life at Relevant. She is passionate about real food.
