Return To Food – The Life Changing Anti-Diet – Book Review

Today I’d like to share a really important book for those of you who are interested in eating better, feeling better, and improving your overall health. It’s a book that contains so much practical and common-sense information that it’s probably going to be considered radical in a genre where fad diets are, sadly, more often the norm.

The book is called Return To Food – The Life Changing Anti-Diet by Sherry Strong, whose philosophy can be summarized with one simple question:

What if the secret to losing weight, increasing your energy and reversing disease, was to stop dieting and simply return to eating real food?

Don’t be fooled by Sherry’s seemingly simplistic question and the charming illustrations she shares throughout the book. Return To Food is a well-researched, well-thought-out book that not only incorporates her personal philosophies on eating, nutritional healing and holistic living, but leaves you with much food for thought.

Eating is not just about the food that we put on our plate and into our bodies – what we eat also impacts the world around us. Accordingly, Sherry tackles a diverse array of topics in this book.

  • Readers who are health-oriented will learn how to tell the difference between natural and “unnatural” food, the main five lethal recipe ingredients, and how to replace the white stuff with the right stuff!
  • Readers who are socially conscious will find information on hot-button topics such as consumption, pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
  • Readers concerned about the emotional and spiritual aspects of eating will learn how to listen to their body and nurture themselves through activities that extend beyond eating.
  • Readers who are anxious to make a change will learn how to conduct a kitchen audit, shop, and set up their kitchen so they can make some of the wholesome recipes included in the book!

Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg!

What I love most about Return To Food is how Sherry explains – in terms we can easily understand – the areas in our lives that need revamping (which encompass more than just food) and how to replace the things that drain us with nourishing food and activities that will sustain us.

Return To Food is a refreshing book to read and a positive book to apply to your life.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    I’ve seen this book on a couple of blogs lately. Eating better is certainly on many of our minds these days. 🙂

  2. Claudia says:

    Sounds like she’s definitely got the right idea. Thanks for sharing about that book.

  3. Beth F says:

    It’s always refreshing to get important information in down to earth terms. Thanks for bringing this one to my attention.

  4. Lee says:

    I hopped over from Natasha in Oz. Looking after our bodies is so important, for years I neglected my health issues and now paying for it having developed an autoimmune disease. I am now gluten free and try to buy organic and avoid processed foods. This book looks like it is one for my library. I am now trying to put my health back on track and hoping that after half a century its not too late.

  5. I like to keep up on all things real food and have not since this book yet. I’m looking forward to reading it. Thank you for introducing it to us.

  6. Just the healthy inspiration and insight so many of us need! We take so much for granted. I agree with the philosophy that ‘Eating is not just about the food that we put on our plate and into our bodies – what we eat also impacts the world around us,’ so I am so delighted that you shared your wonderful post with us at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Link Up. I’m pinning and sharing.

  7. Stephanie says:

    I love the concept of this book. Thanks for the review as I’ll definitely be checking out this one.

    Popping over from Sundays Down Under.

  8. I think this sounds wonderful. I have tried clean eating, and liked it, but not been able to stick to it, but i know that I need to do better with what I eat.

  9. Rebecca says:

    This sounds like a very enlightening book. Our concept of food is way off sometimes. God gave us food to enjoy and sustain our body. This would be a great read !! Visiting from the Sits Girls.
