"Kristen Michaelis can help rescue your child from the quagmire of unhealthy baby formulas, cereals, and jarred foods while implementing a nourishing lifestyle that is your child's best immunization against illness. I see many happy babies growing up on these kinds of real foods, and I would like to see more."—Dr. Cate Shanahan, MD, author of Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food
"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

I discovered Food Renegade via Pinterest, as I do a lot of traditional cooking and I LOVE Kristen's recipes that she posts. I was delighted to learn that she lives just 1/2 hr from me (Austin, TX).
I, like Kristen, have this strong motherly instinct to protect my kids. I feel that what I feed my body while pregnant and breastfeeding, as well as what I put into my kids is critical for their well-being.
I already eat sugar free, gluten free, organic but gained so much valuable information from this book about and will continue to refine my diet and lifestyle. Here's praying this helps :)
