This book is not about a “diet.” This book is the how-to manual to eat whole food, real food, that creates and sustains true health.
Dr. Sarah Marshall and Dr. Tanda Cook are both Naturopathic Doctors, experts in restoring health, preventing disease and using food as medicine. They have been avid cooks and foodies for their entire lives and spent most of the past decade eating an entirely whole food (i.e. no processed food) gluten and dairy free diet sourcing as much of it from local farmers and their own back yards as possible.
It is their mission to change the way we eat in America: to bring us back to the basics, knowing where our food comes from and how to eat sustainability for the health of our bodies and our environment. It is their desire that you use this book not just as a great set of recipes, but as a toolbox to learn how to live healthfully, every day, through what you put in your mouth. This book is not just about what to eat, but about how to live, eating fresh, whole, made-by-nature foods that not only cure and prevent disease, but also nourish body, mind, and soul.
You can read this like a cookbook and follow every recipe to the letter, but the intention is to inspire a new way of thinking about food, cooking, eating, and how to share food around a table with people that you love. This book will bring consciousness to your grocery lists, your refrigerator, your health, and your life.

In part II they describe “the why” of living a gluten free, dairy free whole food lifestyle, defining what health actually is, explaining what whole foods are and why they are the foundation of living health, and include their top ten healthy lifestyle guidelines.

Part IV is where it all comes together: the recipes. They are organized by course: main dishes, vegetable sides, gluten-free grains, sauces, soups, salads, appetizers and snacks. Also included is a specific section of breakfast recipes. Every recipe includes nutrition and health information, different variation ideas, great meal and menu plans and time saving recommendations.
