About the Author

Reviews

"Nina Planck's powerful concept, 'real food, ' has changed how we think about what we eat. Now Nina turns to the nutritional needs of the developing human being. Today, one can say that 'womb ecology' is the most vital aspect of human ecology. In terms of public health, nothing is more important than the health and well-being of pregnant women. That's why no task is more important than to study the factors--particularly nutritional factors--that influence a baby's growth and development." --Dr. Michel Odent, author of The Farmer and the Obstetrician"Nina Planck's personal story of life with baby Julian, from preconception to tending the first tomatoes at their own Small Farm, makes compelling reading. Her no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is voice cuts through cant and euphemism like a whiff of sharp cheddar for anyone who wants the real dope. Her basic distinction between real and fake foods makes essential reading not just for mothers with babies, but for all of us who want to live and eat well." --Betty Fussell, author of The Story of Corn, Raising Steaks, and My Kitchen Wars"Nina's real food concept is critical for new parents and her advice on introducing solids is the best no-nonsense, eliminate-the-power-struggle option I've read in years." --Erica Lyon, author of The Big Book of Birth and founder of Realbirth"How can you not be interested in Nina Planck's book?" --Jesse Kornbluth, HeadButler.com"[Planck] is a cross between Alice Waters and Martha Stewart." --Washington Post"Science is finally catching up to what our grandmothers knew long ago: that traditional foods, and even fats, are actually good for you--and a whole lot healthier than the creations of food technology. Drawing on the latest research and oldest folk wisdom, Real Food offers a persuasive and invigorating defense of eggs, butter, meat, and even lard (!), as well as a powerful critique of a food industry that aims to replace these standbys with its highly processed, and sometimes deadly, simulacra. Nina Planck has written a valuable and eye-opening book." --Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma"Planck has written an important book, and her timing may be perfect. With any luck, Real Food will resonate with Americans (starved for so long on low-fat diets) and bring Weston Price to a much larger audience than he could ever have imagined." --Los Angeles Times Book Review
