“At last, a wonderfully creative and thoroughly well researched work of immensely helpful and beneficial guidance, for us as parents!
Food and health are inseparable. In today’s information age nutritional concepts can be all too confusing, especially when the information is focused on ‘what’ to eat, rather than exploring and understanding the ‘why’.
This book introduces important and comprehensible ‘why’s’ of applying food as your medicine, while at the same time, offering truly sumptuous and easy to follow recipes to give our little genetic investments vibrant health and a greater connection to nature, of which we are all an integral part.
Toward healing, awareness and peace! Thank you Catherine.”
– Dr. Jon Morley (MBChB)

“Catherine has managed to fit a veritable encyclopedia worth of knowledge and wisdom into this beautiful book.
As a mother, I will value this resource for referring to time and again when preparing food for my family. I will turn to it when deciding on the best choices, in terms of personal and environmental health, while shopping and preparing delicious, healthy meals for my loved ones.
Painstaking attention to detail is paid to all things food and health related that we may all have heard of or read about, but are unsure of how to integrate into our daily lives.
The creative and wholesome recipe ideas will continually be an inspiration in my kitchen, and yours, for years to come!”
– Esme Morley (A mom)

“This well-researched and masterfully created book is a true gift to aware parents who want to give their children the best start to life.”
– Dr Hanna Grotepass MBChB, Homeopath, Synchronization Harmonics practitioner
