Editorial Reviews

Review

"Essential reading for anyone interested in eating a clean, healthy diet.  Stefanie Sacks explains the additives in food and how to avoid the harmful ones. This book will guide you in cleaning up your pantry and refrigerator, shopping wisely, and storing food properly. All this and easy, appealing recipes too!”
—Dr. Andrew Weil, founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and author of True Food
 
"While Sacks writes in a similar style to Marion Nestle and ­Michael ­Pollan, her book is more accessible and practical for people seeking the motivation and tools to follow a healthier lifestyle, emphasizing that even very small changes in diet can make a big difference in health.... This is a valuable guide to evaluating, choosing, and preparing food for wellness."
—Library Journal

“An approachable, sensible guide that delivers on its promise of helping readers make healthier choices without breaking the bank or alienating family members.”
—Publishers Weekly

“This is a good primer for those who want to give themselves and their families a nutrition makeover. Sacks, a chef with a master of science in nutrition degree, provides can-do ways to make healthier choices.”
—Booklist

"Stefanie Sacks shines a bright light on the dark side of our food supply, but she doesn't resort to fear-mongering and she doesn't leave you hanging. Rather, she offers a sensible, step-by-step plan for making the best food choices in the real world. Her non-judgmental, balanced approach and inspiring recipes are just what we need to make healthy changes that last."
—Ellie Krieger, MS, RDN, host of the Food Network’s “Healthy Appetite” and bestselling author of Weeknight Wonders

“Stefanie understands how we need to nourish ourselves. She has helped me shift food choices to support my mind, body, and spirit, and I believe she can do the same for you.”
Donna Karan

“In a time when labels are meaningless, Sacks cuts through consumer confusion and tells the truth about our food system. What the Fork Are You Eating? is an informative, accessible guide on how to choose healthy—and safe—food. A must-read for anyone who cares about what they put in their body.”
—Anthony Fassio, CEO, Natural Gourmet Institute          
 
“Stefanie reminds us to slow the fork down, encouraging us to learn the story behind our food so that we can make better food choices that will truly nourish our body, mind, and spirit.”
 —Richard McCarthy, Executive Director, Slow Food USA®
 
“In a world where our children are expected to have shorter lifespans than ourselves and where the leading cause of death for children under 15 is cancer, it is imperative that we are all educated on our food choices. What the Fork Are You Eating? is an invaluable tool to help you feed yourself, your family, and your friends the ‘best,’ healthiest food possible. With Stefanie Sacks as your guide, you can positively impact the health of your family, our food supply, and possibly our planet as well!”
—Ann Cooper, founder of the Chef Ann Foundation and author of Lunch Lessons: Changing the Way We Feed Our Children
 
“Stefanie Sacks really stirs the pot in her must-read book, What the Fork Are You Eating?  With wit, wisdom and authority, Stefanie clearly lays out what nasty additives are hiding in our food, and empowers us with concrete solutions on how to make cleaner food choices. This book is a must-have for all of us looking to enhance our health and wellbeing.”
—Rebecca Katz, MS, author of The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen and The Longevity Kitchen
 
“There’s a revolution coming, and the most powerful weapon is your fork! You choose—is your fork a weapon of mass destruction, or does it wield food as medicine? In What The Fork Are You Eating? Stefanie Sacks tells you what the fork to do to ward off the top-rated terminators and get yourself to pantry and meal rehab for a longer and healthier life!”
—Mary Beth Augustine, MS, RDN, CDN, Director of Nutrition, Saybrook University, and author of The Detox Prescription
 
“Stefanie Sacks asks the pressing question, ‘When will the food industry and the government stop playing roulette with our health?' She elucidates myriad ways they are doing so, as well as how we can navigate a healthy route through our food system. This book is an invaluable resource in guiding each one of us to be part of the solution.”
—Mary Cleaver, chef and owner of The Cleaver Company and The Green Table
 
“Stefanie Sacks has given us an eminently practical guide to help us navigate the windy road of healthy eating. Her expertise in this field is evident on every page as she lays out in straightforward language the dangers of the artificial food industry and the ‘better for you alternatives.’  Her good-natured approach is a refreshing change from the fear-based messages we find so often in books about nutrition. As a pediatrician, I will be recommending this book to all my families to support mindful healthy eating.  Enjoy each chapter of What the Fork as you would a good meal. Bon Appetite.”
—Stephen Cowan MD, FAAP, author of Fire Child, Water Child: How Understanding the Five Types of ADHD Can Help You Improve Your Child’s Self-Esteem and Attention.

I love how they break up every chapter by explaining what each ingredient is, why it's bad for you and what to eat in its place. A great guide for busy people.

Indispensable! Practicable! Fun! Stefanie Sacks easy breezy writing style makes this book stand apart from all others on the subject and a must read for anyone interested in living a healthier more balanced lifestyle. She's an expert who speaks to the reader like a sister, best friend, cousin or dear neighbor - concerned but without lecturing. I also like the fact that you can jump around from chapter to chapter on subjects that interest you. An indispensable resource everyone should have for themselves and those they care about. And it makes a great gift! Highly recommended.

This is a book that condenses a ton of information about the history of food and how it got to where it is now and what we need to know to make our own food choices. The book speaks in a tone that is inclusive, informative and honest. It's the best book I've come across yet that puts everything you need to know in one totally readable source. It's going to be a reference bible for me for a long time. Worth every penny!

This is an awesome, no-nonsense guide to avoiding the bad stuff (chemical additives, preservatives, gmo ingredients, etc) and replacing it with good. Stefanie's discussion of each bad ingredient explains simply why you should be concerned, citing scientific facts, without feeling overwhelming or fear-mongering.

Not only is this book a great guide for food-makeover beginners, but it's also beneficial for those who closely follow the subject of wellness. Stefanie adds informative historical context to each of the topics to help you understand not only how to avoid the bad stuff, but also how it's found it's way into our food system in the first place. She shines a light on areas of our food system that need change and what you can do TODAY to avoid harmful ingredients sneaking their way onto your plate.

What I loved most was the fact that her goal is to meet you exactly where you are at. This isn't any kind of pushy diet plan. She just wants you to make informed choices, simple as that. The information is completely digestible even though the topics would be otherwise overwhelming without her guidance. With most "healthy eating" books you are always left with the now what thought, but this offers better for you brands, a fork ton of recipes, and other resources to help you afterwards . I cannot tell you how many times I have referenced this book while shopping!

I would rather spend my money on quality, organically grown vegetables and fruits, whole grains and humanely raised and properly fed food than a doctor and a pharmacy. This amazing book is a complete blueprint to accomplish this mission. I will be buying copies for all my family and friends. Loved it, easy to read and understand.
