Total Health from the Ground Up

Numerous dietitians requested that we make a course using this book. Dr. Daphne Miller visited farms and a vintner to learn about how the ecology of our food supply is intrinsically linked to the ecology of our bodies. Fascinating nutrition reading!

What an interesting book! I found myself re-reading certain excerpts over and over again. This book was a nice change being written - almost as a story - I found myself intrigued and engaged with an uncharted topic. This book proves to me that stepping outside of my comfort zone can be interesting!  SS, MS, RDN 2015
