eat non-toxic book coverAs parents, it’s part of our job description to protect our children from harmful chemicals.  Most of us know, all too well, that it’s not an easy job. As we go through our daily lives we are confronted with information overload, pressuring us to buy specific brands –the media, our friends, family-everyone has an opinion.  When it comes to food products the ingredient lists are long and complicated; when it comes to choices the sky’s the limit. How do we sort through it all?  How can we be sure we are making good choices for ourselves and our families?

Katy Farber has written a new e-book, Eat Non-Toxic: a Manual for Busy Parents, to help us navigate through the information and inspire us to create healthy environments for our families. Katy is an author, mother, teacher, and the founder of the well- known blog, Non-Toxic Kids. Her new manual is a guide for busy parents looking to limit their family’s exposure to chemicals and toxins in food and feeding gear.

The book is filled with practical, usable and helpful steps that provide much needed guidance and direction when it comes to protecting your family and the earth from harmful toxins and chemicals. Each chapter is filled with valuable information covering a wide range of topics relating to food and food safety.

A few of my favorite topics are:

  • Find real, practical, and usable tips and ideas feeding your family in a safe and healthy way.
  • Fantastic recipes using whole foods.
  • Learn how to limit toxins in your family’s diet without tremendous cost, effort or time.
  • Why we should eat local, organic and humanely raised meats.
  • Cooking and food storage: why we need to limit or eliminate plastic in the kitchen.

As an added bonus for those of us who are really exhausted and crazy busy, the end of each chapter has the Tired Parents Cliff Notes– a summary of all the important stuff for those of us who need that extra help remembering the highlights (me!).

On sale now

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
