You have the power to impact your health and wellness!

Scientists are beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.

In this revolutionary book, Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change your eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in fads such as raw foods, vegan, gluten-free, or paleo, Leaf reveals that every individual has unique nutritional needs and there's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows how to change the way you think about food and put yourself on the path toward health.

If you're tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, if you struggle with emotional eating, or if you're simply not satisfied with your level of health, you'll find that this book is the key to discovering how you can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit--for life!


"Dr. Caroline Leaf shows us how we can use our minds to choose to establish not only a healthier, integrated lifestyle but also to improve the lives of those suffering injustice within the global food industry."--Christine Caine, author of Unstoppable

"With an informative combination of scientific research and scriptural principles, Dr. Leaf shows that healthy eating may not be quick or cheap, but it is something we all can do."--David I. Levy, MD, clinical professor of neurosurgery, University of California, San Diego; author of Gray Matter: A Neurosurgeon Discovers the Power of Prayer . . . One Patient at a Time

"We live in a world consumed with so many things--including food and the pursuit of health, beauty, opportunity, and influence. I am confident this book will be life-changing for many and will fuel foundational truths that make for a blessed, effective, and fruitful life."--Bobbie Houston, Hillsong Church

"Dr. Caroline Leaf reveals how to have a healthier lifestyle and a sharper mind. Her scientific knowledge, combined with her revelatory wisdom, will completely change your life."--Robert Morris, founding senior pastor, Gateway Church; bestselling author of The Blessed Life

For anyone who wants to be healthy
4 stars By Mariquita, Nov 21 2016
This book was an eye opener into the food industry. The author quotes from the Bible, to help guide us into what God would want us to do, regarding our health and food choices. The author also talks about our brain, and offers suggestions about how we can train our brain to make choices, especially in food choices. I highly recommend it to people who want to be healthy and have God's influence.

A must read for any Christian
5 stars By Andrea, Nov 07 2016
This is a must read for any Christian wanting to steward Gods wonderful gift of the earth to us with love. This book is brilliant and full of great information that has completely changed the way I think about how I shop and what I feed myself and my family.  I can't possibly continue to eat the way I have been according to the world and expect to receive healing in my body and continue to disrespect what God has provided us now that I am aware.  I'm looking forward to a healthier longer life free of illnesses for me, my children and my children's children and so on.

Should be a text book in schools
5 stars By Becc, Oct 25 2016
I'd previously heard about Dr. Leaf and thought I should review her material. This book absolutely blew me away. So much information in regards to the industrialized food industry and things that I was not aware about. It completely transformed the way that I think about food, what I choose to eat and what I do and don't buy in a grocery store.
Dr. Leaf not only highlights the issues with the current food system, but also provides a solution and alternatives to the problem. This book also includes recipes. I've personally made a few of them and they are delicious.
I can not recommend this book highly enough. I think it should be used as a text book in schools and every teenageryoung parent should read this.

Fantastic
5 stars By Monique, Jun 29 2016
Our food today is not the way God intended it to be with many foods being genetically modified or have added chemicals to make it last longer and appeal to our taste buds. 
Leaf explains how the food we choose to eat can have various impacts on our body, and sometimes not for the better! With lots of research on the topic, her opinions are heavily backed with references back to the bible. A fantastic read and you will learn so much!
