We thought it would be helpful to create a resource pages for that you can always come to for useful articles and websites, books, apps and other tools to help you on your Eat Real Food journey. More will be added to it as we learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future we will reference this page quite often. We recommend book-marking it for your convenience. Enjoy!

A fantastic free resource by Professor Tim Crowe. His information is excellent, easily digestible(!) and delivered with humour. Never a dull read. Please check it out.
Another super informative free site. All nutrition trained contributors, they get to the nitty-gritty of nutritional issues facing regular folks and do a good job of demystifying them.
Laurie has set up a wonderful Facebook community for home gardeners. If you grow herbs and vegetables, and have an excess of a crop, you can post up what you have and what you’d like – and connect with locals to swap with! Free, community-building and promoting boutique, sustainable gardening.
Listen to Nav and Tim discuss nutrition, fads and other food-related topics.
Monica Reinagel has been podcasting quality information on nutrition for years. She offers bite-sized(!) shows of about six minutes each, covering many aspects of nutrition in a very engaging way. She’s also an opera singer.
“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.
Sally Fallon with Mary Enig lay out the case for a traditional approach to food. Whether you agree or disagree with their position, you will definitely have challenged some assumptions and learned more as a result.
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.
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.
