Growing Connections with Deborah Madison. Deborah’s guest today is Alexandra Zissu.
Two small but very important books have come out within the past year and both contain ideas that can easily be put into motion, thereby bettering our lives.
The first book, Michael Pollan’s Food Rules is “written with the clarity, concision and wit that has become bestselling author Michael Pollan’s trademark, and lays out a set of straightforward, memorable rules for eating wisely, one per page accompanied by a concise explanation.”
Alexandra Zissu’s The Conscious Kitchen, isn’t about how to eat, but rather understanding the foods, materials and fuels that we use in our kitchens on a daily basis. Think of The Conscious Kitchen as as a nuts and bolts guide that helps make sense of the many things we consume without questioning, but probably know we should.
Alexandra Zissu has a penchant for using her own life to unravel problems, find, and share solutions, which was coincidentally the focus of her first book: The Complete Organic Pregnancy. She is known as an “eco-lifestyle consultant” and her work has appeared in Health, Plenty, and The New York Times. www.alexandrazissu.com.
