My favorite part about following a holistic practice is the emphasis on looking at the WHOLE picture. Optimal health cannot be reached through one avenue alone. That is why at F.E.E.D. I focus not only on Food, but Education, Exercise, and Diet. This page will house F.E.E.D. approved information ranging from books and movies that will blow your mind, to other websites and businesses local to Cincinnati that will take your health to the next level. These are resources and businesses that I know, love, and trust. Keep checking back, as I am always learning and will be sharing new findings here.
- Food Revolution by John Robbins (this is the book that literally launched me into my health obsession. It is near and dear to my heart, and I would like to get it onto some kind of required reading list. )
- Slaughterhouse by Gail Eisnitz
- The Blood Sugar Solution by Dr. Mark Hyman
- How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger (omg, the food nerd in me loved every second of this book)
- Clean Gut by Dr. Alejandro Junger
- The China Study by T. Colin Campbell (This is another one that was a total game changer for me. Craaaazy amounts of information, and a definite must read.)
- Proteinaholic by Dr. Garth Davis
Movies and Documentaries
These can be found on Netflix. Take a break from binge-watching old episodes of Law and Order: SVU (or is that just me?) and turn on something that has the potential to radically shift your thinking!
- Forks Over Knives
- Food, Inc.
- Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead
- GMO, OMG
