Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is! answers questions big and small: What are whole foods? How do we phase the processed stuff out and the whole foods in? How do we know what to look for among the glut of choices at the grocery store? Is organic food really worth it? And what the heck is a CSA? In short, how do we navigate our way out of a food maze that was seemingly designed to trap us into consuming an endless cycle of cheap, processed, packaged junk? First, you´ll discover the four steps. These are all-important, easy-to-remember principles that touch on everything from goals to budgeting, and they´ll help steer you in the right direction every time you set out to buy food for you and your family. With these guideposts in mind, you´ll then learn all about the staples that constitute a nutrient-dense diet. From organic meats and produce to raw dairy products to freshly milled grains, you´ll learn why these foods are important, where to find them, and most importantly, how to make sure you´re getting superior nutrition from them. By the end of Section II, you´ll know if you should: Cook your meat rare or well-done. Consume visibly gelatinous bone broth. Eat eggs from chickens raised on soy. (For that matter, if you should eat soy.) Drink raw or pasteurized milk and cream. Consume full-fat, low-fat, or nonfat dairy products. Soak and/or ferment your legumes and grains before cooking them. Invest in your own home flour mill. Buy iodized salt. Drink distilled water. Buy nuts and seeds from bulk bins. Cook with canola or vegetable oil. Feed your pets cooked food. Purchase over-the-counter skin care treatments that tout collagen and antioxidants. Of course, nobody ever said that changing eating habits for the better is easy, especially for little ones. But Put Your Money Where Your Mouth I 1. Language: English. Narrator: K.

Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times best-selling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky´s back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!). What´s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can´t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and 20 silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong, the five kilim rugs from Turkey, the splendid hand-carved dining table (and ten chairs) from Sri Lanka, the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband Luke expressly forbade her to buy)... Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London and Luke is furious. Two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky´s even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn´t have a new job yet! Luke insists she go on a budget. And worse: her beloved best friend Suze has found a new best friend while Becky was away. Becky´s feeling rather blue, when her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is thrilled! She´s convinced her sister will be a true soulmate. They´ll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos together. Until she meets Jessica for the first time and gets the shock of her life. Surely Becky Bloomwood´s sister can´t...hate shopping? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Kellgren.
