books & films I recommend

Books about health and nutrition – About the Paleo diet and more.

Books about the emotional and spiritual side of eating.

My favorite cookbooks and books about how to cook.



This documentary is an entertaining but informative explanation of why “fat is bad for you” is bad advice (and how it got started and perpetuated). I don’t agree with all the diet advice implied (and the author has modified his thoughts since this film was made), but it will give you insight into the fat vs. carbs issue, in regards to weight gain/loss.

You can search for it on Netflix, or watch it here:

Learn why antibiotics in our food are so dangerous: Resistance

How sugar is taking over our diet: Sugar Coated
