GIVEAWAY: Deep Nutrition and Food Rules Books

Last week, I shared an interview I did with Dr. Cate on how your diet affects your genetic expression. Even though I’d already read both books, Dr. Cate kindly sent me new copies of each book to facilitate the interview. Guess who wins?

You do! This week, I’m being inspired by the spirit of Christmas giving. I’ll give one of you lucky readers my extra copies of Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food and Food Rules.


What You’ll Win

Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food
The subtitle says it all. This book uses simple language and an engaging style to explain why your genes need traditional food. Learn how genetic expression can change with diet, and how you can impart genetic wealth to your children and grand children with your diet today.

Food Rules
An answer to Michael Pollan’s book by the same name, Food Rules unpacks what a nourishing, healthy diet looks like by sharing bite-sized chunks of easily digested information. Rules include such wonders as “Skip the skim.” and “Replace soda with kombucha.” It’s perfect for helping people transition to a more nutrient-dense diet of traditionally-prepared foods.

The following two tabs change content below.
I am a passionate advocate for REAL FOOD -- food that's sustainable, organic, local, and traditionally-prepared according to the wisdom of our ancestors. I'm also an author and a nutrition educator. I enjoy playing in the rain, a good bottle of Caol Ila scotch, curling up with a page-turning book, sunbathing on my hammock, and watching my three children explore their world.

    Would love to get these books thank you. Also someone on one of the blogs in this genre wrote about supplements and vegetables and how toddlers cannot absorb the nutrients yet so it is okay if they don’t eat them. I really want to find that blog again and get the book it was based on but cannot find it. Does anyone know what I am referring to? Thanks!

A recent diagnosis of breast cancer and I went thru genetic testing. I must be doing some things right(foods, filtered water, probotics, enzymes) as it turns out my prognosis is very good, Praise Be To God!!

Who Am I?

My name is Kristen Michaelis. I'm a nutrition educator, author, and mother of three. I adore hats, happy skirts, horizons full of storm clouds, the full-bodied feel of wind as I ride motorcylces, reading in my hammock, and a hearty shot of Caol Ila scotch. I'm also a rebel with a cause.
