Books

In Defense of Food
In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto
“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Michael Pollan’s bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives, enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating.
Nourishing traditions
Nourishing Traditions

primal blueprint

Good Calories, Bad Calories
Gary Taubes is no stranger to controversy. In this book he challenges the mainstream position on nutrition by critically analysing the history of US recommendations and the personlities behind them. At the very least this book will cause you to ask more questions and blindly accept fewer answers.
The Omnivore's Dilemma
The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals
Michael Pollan again! He asks basic questions about the moral and ecological consequences of our food. Critics agree it’s a wake-up call and, written in clear, informative prose, also entertaining. The book doesn’t outline a diet plan but is a loud, convincing case for change.

Apps
