Can't wait for my copy to arrive without plastic packaging from Buy Green @Beth Terry - congrats!

My book, Alphabet Of Avoidance is available @Ethical Ocean

Food Rules Illustrated.

I can't imagine a healthier (un)cookbook by a better chef and person. Doug McNish's food is outstanding...I pre-ordered my copy, you should too!

Beth Terry's Book...available for pre-order now! her blog - myplasticfreelife...

If you've read Alexandra Zissu's other books (hope so!), you'll know that this is the only book you need for making, cleaning and greening the world you care about most...your home!

My own book! A fun, inspiring and perspective-changing read that not only identifies what we should be avoiding in order to live healthier lives, but also includes simple solutions to immediately replace the ‘bad’ with something better...or even, nothing at all. The Alphabet of Avoidance will change your perspective. It will make you more informed. It will convince you to get rid of bad habits. It will inspire you to develop new habits. It will give you the resources to make the changes easily.

If you aren't outraged, then you just aren't paying attention.

    Lisa can I buy your book directly from you and avoid the inevitable plastic packaging from Amazon?

No mother sets out to buy their newborn a bottle with BPA, serve chemical laden fish for dinner, or send their child to school with a lunchbox with lead in the lining. The brilliance of Slow Death by Rubber Duck is not simply that Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie experiment on themselves to show us all how everyday toxins impact our well being, it’s that they are able to deliver solutions and a hopeful message.

    I read this and it scares me! I wish there was a stronger call to action in it, not just a hopeful message and some kind of weak solutions.

The ultimate reference, yet still amusing, this book takes you on a guided tour of the supermarket. Along the way, it tells you just what you need to know about everything from food labels, to nutrition and health claims, and shows you how to make the best decisions for yourself and your own needs.

Food wisdom delivered in a witty, inspirational and common sense way – if you wonder “what should I eat?”, this is for you. Long novels aren’t your thing? Not to worry, this book is short, to the point, and easier to read than a People Magazine!

Written with three criteria in mind: what’s good for personal health, what’s good for the planet, and what tastes great. Alexandra teaches you how to find your way around a farmers' market, how to cook with the least amount of energy, and how to eat locally, even in winter!

You know how a mother says that she’ll do anything for her child? After Robyn O’Brien’s daughter had a violent allergic reaction to eggs, everything changed. I almost didn’t want to accept the information that she delivers about our food supply chain because it was so angering to see in print. But in order to change, we must take action, and we need the reason, the push the inspiration…and this mom has done that for all of us.

Has your child ever said, “Daddy, where does polysorbate 80 come from?” Steve’s did, and then he wrote this book – a chapter dedicated to each ingredient in a twinkie, it’s humourous and scary all at the same time. You won’t ever read a label the same way again… in a good way.

If you don’t know about the “wrong bus syndrome” look it up, or get this part book/part cookbook. Amazing perspective offering great ideas to create your own urban organic kitchen.

I like this version…simple enough for my 9 year old to read, but packed full of perspective twisting information that guides us to eat better for every reason.
