The Pantry Principle: How to read the label and understand what’s really in your food

By Mira Dessy, Nutrition Educator and Real Food Advocate

From the days of hunter-gatherers to modern shoppers attempting to decipher the complexity of products on the food shelves, the way we produce our food has changed dramatically. But our need for proper nourishment remains the same. Processed food, fast food, adulterated, and chemically enhanced foods make navigating the grocery store and stocking our pantries with healthy foods a truly mystifying chore. Many of us don’t know where this food comes from, and we don’t know what’s really in it. It’s not just what you eat, it’s what’s in what you eat. The Pantry Principle will help you take back control of your pantry and your food source.

By Dee McCaffrey, Diet Counselor and Nutrition Educator

The Science of Skinny: Start Understanding Your Body’s Chemistry and Stop Dieting Forever

By Dee McCaffrey, Diet Counselor and Nutrition Educator

Dee McCaffrey lost 100 pounds and has kept the weight off for over two decades. As an organic chemist, Dee worked with chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate—a detergent-like substance used to test for water pollutants—everyday. The last place she expected that chemical to be, however, was in the ingredients list of her favorite packaged food. As a chemist, McCaffrey was forced to question what effect the chemicals included in processed foods could have on the human body. As a woman who continually struggled with her weight, she began to wonder if these chemicals could be part of the problem.

Now a certified diet counselor and nutrition educator, Dee reveals how, as the food industry continues to replace natural foods with synthetic ones, our bodies are subjected to unnatural chemical reactions which often result in major health issues—everything from obesity to arthritis. Studies outlined in McCaffrey’s no-nonsense prose provide compelling scientific evidence of what processed foods can do to the body in an easy-to-understand, accessible format, guaranteed to make even the most die-hard junk food lover rethink their favorite snack. Knowing how daunting it can be to drastically alter one’s diet, McCaffrey shares her own experience managing the transition, and lays out a plan to help readers make the jump. Jam packed with fascinating, useful, science-based info about acid-alkaline balance, liver detoxification, how to eat organic on a budget, and an entire chapter on the most powerful skinny superfoods. Part memoir, part exposé, part lifestyle guide, The Science of Skinny provides readers with the knowledge and motivation necessary to better understand their bodies and stop dieting—forever.
