BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

True Food: Eight Simple Steps to a Healthier You is an encouraging and informative how-to guide that helps you improve your health, your family's and the planet in eight doable steps.

Written by Annie Bond who is heralded by Body + Soul magazine as being “the foremost expert on green living" and with a foreword by natural food pioneer Alice Waters, True Food serves as a way to enlighten your kitchen so that you can be more conscious of how you shop for, select and prepare food.

True Food's emphasis on choosing foods that are natural, plant-based, sustainably-raised and preservative-free will encourage even the most die-hard Twinkie-eater and offers motivation to a "return to basics" mentality so that we're eating foods closer to the earth rather than those made in food laboratories.

Throughout the book, you will also discover new ways to go shopping and how you can still eat fresh seasonal produce in the middle of winter as well as how to mind your budget while choosing foods that are natural and organic and how to cook simple dishes like steaming an artichoke..

The eight steps outlined in True Food are:

Step 1: Eat Local Food Step 2: Eat a Variety of Foods Step 3: Aim for Organic Step 4: Eat Lower on the Food Chain Step 5: Eat Fresh Food Step 6: Eat Whole Foods Step 7: Stock Your Pantry Step 8: Green Your Kitchen
