I have personally known Pat Smith for years. This woman walks the talk, and is one of the most honorable women I have had the privilege of knowing.

My job as a Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Nurse is to help people with one of the fastest growing chronic diseases in the world. We all know that we need to eat better to both help with and prevent many chronic diseases. Yet, the first question I am asked when a patient comes to me for education is “what do I eat?”. There is so much information out there and much of it is confusing and unclear and wrong.

Now here is Pat’s book. I have watched as she has poured her heart and soul into finding the truth when it comes to real food and real health. She has been able to translate all that knowledge into this book. It is a delight to read. It is easy to understand. You will be able to implement the knowledge you gain. After reading this book, you will be able to make better choices in order to eat right and improve your health.

I love this book. I wish I could give every patient I see this book. You will not be sorry that you own this book.

“It’s All About the Food” takes the reader on a journey through a short history of the food industry in America and how seemingly “helpful” changes in our food production system have brought havoc upon our bodies in the form of constant inflammation, obesity, and other diaeases. This read is fun both fun and informative, offering personal anecdotes about the author and her family, while also being clear and insightful around more complicated topics. Pat also gives readers a toolbox for further information and the outline of a more balanced and healthy diet.
Do you want to know why your health numbers are not winning gold stars, read this book . It is easy to understand even though a lot of scientific information is quoted. I am a diabetic and cancer survivor so I am really motivated to be at my optimum health. This book ” scared me straight ” but also gave me hope that I can do it. Thanks for making a “hard pill to swallow” go down easy.
I really appreciate all the knowledge shared and the way it is presented. The book is a very educational read regarding nutrition and encouraging to all who read it to make the move to whole foods and go about it in the most healthy way.
For many years I have been a fan of ‘The Missing Manual’ series for Mac Computer users. Pat Smith’s book is THAT missing manual for people want to know more about nutrition and health. Every page is packed with the missing links in our comprehension about how our diet relates to our well-being. Whether one’s concerns are weight, allergies, disease, energy, or whatever, this is a concise and enjoyable read that will take you a quantum leap forward in your understanding of what to buy, cook, and serve your family. This book is for EVERYONE, unless your health is not worth taking time to read 163 carefully written pages. In that case just grab a bag of chips and go watch ‘I Love Lucy’ reruns.
Excellent! Easy, fun reading, but tons of information.
