If you’re anything like me, and my guess is that we have something in common if you’re reading a blog about out-of-the-box parenting, you like to read. And research. And learn the *other* side of the story. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming though, when you have a topic you want to dig deeper into, and have to sift through heaps of books and internet rabbit trails. I know; I did it for almost two years researching for The Other Baby Book.
So that’s why I’m THRILLED to present the “Extreme” Health Library sale! Literally, you could brew a big pot of tea (or three), and grab a cozy blanket (for all your Northerners), and spend the rest of the winter learning alongside some pretty awesome health professionals and real food bloggers. The authors of these books are the real deal. Some of them I know personally; some of them I admire from afar. Regardless, I’m super stoked to have these gems in my library now:

and one I’m really excited about, because I’m a food science nerd…
