Leslie Korn's book is a wealth of information for 'at home'
strategies to implement cleaner, healthier food choices. Food can
be either medicine or toxin. Her approach aids in creating a
family-friendly cooking environment with simple, clear lists to
reduce toxic foods and retool the pantry. These changes support
reduction of symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, and cognitive
impairment. The key is her personalized approach: finding the
'right fuel for you!' Sharing her wisdom in nutrition, spices, and
foods, recipes are included throughout to strengthen the use of
home cooking.--Judith E. Pentz, MD, Integrative and Holistic
