"Before civilization, humans once had an innate intelligence about what was edible in their environment and how to prepare it in order to extract the most nutrition from it. Kristen Michaelis walks you through the minefield of conventional nutrition babble to the safety of what thousands of years of cultural traditions have shown: that vibrant health comes from eating what our ancestors ate—unprocessed foods from animals raised as they are supposed to live. This is correct nutrition that needs to be taught in every household and school and handed down from parents to children. This book should be required reading for all parents and those contemplating parenthood."—Jill Tieman, MA, DC, CCN, DACBN, editor of www.RealFoodForager.com
"At the end of October 2012, I found myself lethargic, uninterested in most things, and frustrated with my weight. Most of all, I was disappointed that my husband and I had not conceived, even though we had been trying for over six months. Tracking my ovulation didnÆt seem to help. When I ran across Kristen's website, Food Renegade, a week later, I immediately signed up for her free e-mail course on Beautiful Babies. Who doesnÆt want a beautiful baby? I made little changes at first, then bigger ones as I found reliable sources for real, traditional food. My energy went up, my digestive issues stopped, and it felt like my brain worked again for the first time in years. Best of all, a few days after Christmas, the home pregnancy test I took showed positive. I am eight weeks into my pregnancy with no nausea, enough energy to keep up with my three kids and two dogs, almost no mood swings, and the joy of anticipating a healthy pregnancy for myself and my baby."—Robin Fuentes, Beautiful Babies student
ôI want to thank you a hundred times over for the 'Beautiful Babies' e-course. I followed the recommendations that you made and I had a healthy, complication-free pregnancy and birth. I didnÆt get any stretch marks, varicose veins, no swelling, no pre-eclampsia, etc. I had a water birth with no complications, and I didn't use any painkillers or any drugs! I left the 'birthing center' the same day. I couldn't be happier! Just 1.5 weeks after giving birth and I can fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes."—Keri Hessel, Beautiful Babies student

At the end of February I pre-ordered this book and took your online "Beautiful Babies" course. I started the course right away and made several immediate changes, most importantly adding in more good fats to my diet as I learned about the important role of cholesterol in hormone production. My TSH(thyroid) levels equalized after 5 months of being elevated and I felt much better. My other hormone levels began to equalize as well (all confirmed by blood test). I ovulated on cycle day 15, whereas I previously ovulated around day 21. My progesterone levels after ovulation on unmedicated cycles used to be around 7 (too low) and this time was 22! Today, April 7, I got a positive pregnancy test! And this was an unmedicated cycle as we had decided to take a break from fertility treatments. My husband and I are ecstatic and excited to continue making changes in our diet and lifestyle, because they are creating very positive changes!
Though I am now pregnant, this book will continue to be important during the next 9 months and especially after baby arrives as there is valuable information on breastfeeding and baby's first foods. As a first time mom, I will definitely be needing some references for these next steps!Read more ›
