Have you missed me? This season of my life has been super busy. I am still cooking and baking away, but finding the time to post about it has been challenging. But I did want to fill you in on a couple of books I’ve read that have great information and should convince you to rethink what you are eating.
The first book…(go get it right now, click here )…is a #1 New York Times bestseller and a finalist for a 2013 Books for a Better Life award.
Written by a neurologist, this book examines and proves with study after study how carbohydrates (both healthy and unhealthy carbs) are destroying our brains. It shows how grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more. Dr. Perlmutter ealso offers how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age and how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who asks me what they should read.
The next book I highly recommend (get it by clicking here), is an epic study written by a dentist. Since I am a dentist, I appreciate that fact.
It is an eye-opening read about the importance of whole food nutrition, and the degeneration and destruction that comes from a diet of processed foods.
I can’t say it any better than the Amazon description so here it is:
For nearly 10 years, Dr. Weston Price traveled around the world in search of the secret to health. Instead of looking at people afflicted with disease symptoms, this highly-respected dentist and dental researcher chose to focus on healthy individuals, and challenged himself to understand how they achieved such amazing health. Dr. Price traveled to hundreds of cities in a total of 14 different countries in his search to find healthy people. He investigated some of the most remote areas in the world. He observed perfect dental arches, minimal tooth decay, high immunity to tuberculosis and overall excellent health in those groups of people who ate their indigenous foods. He found when these people were introduced to modernized foods, such as white flour, white sugar, refined vegetable oils and canned goods, signs of degeneration quickly became quite evident.

As for the diet coke:
This video sums it up nicely. As an aside, you’ll note in the video that Phosphoric Acid is mentioned as an ingredient of colas. While watching this video, keep in mind that in dentistry, we use Phosphoric Acid to treat enamel (read: microscopically strip minerals from the tooth) so that we can bond adhesive filling materials to tooth. Which then begs the question, if we know it does that to teeth after a 15 second application, what is Phosphoric Acid doing to your insides when you drink it?! Watch this video and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
Happy Reading and Viewing!!
