Praise for Beyond Labels
"A successful, all-natural farmer and a savvy PhD nutritionist/scientist get together to write a book about food. What a concept! Finally, a story about eating that invites you, the reader, to co-create your own personalized roadmap to finding the best food options for you and your loved ones."
– Will Winter, DVM, Holistic Veterinarian
"The labels we put on ourselves as eaters are as mired in dogma and misinformation as the labels on our packaged food: paleo, vegan, keto, pescatarian, and beyond. Beyond Labels makes the complex simple, but more importantly, it is an opportunity for our unity and reconnection to the land, our communities, and our humanity through real food. Let the feast begin..."
– Zach Bush, MD
