You can get most of Tosca's books at the library. I just borrowed them and copied pages that interested me. If there was enough information that I really wanted, then I would buy them.

I will NEVER give up. It is not my destiny or your destiny to live the life of a fat person. That fat person is not who I am meant to be and I have the power to change it. Anything in my power I will do. ANYTHING. I will not give up until I get to goal.

Sooo *happy* you found this team. I just found it too, a couple of days ago. I've got a lot to learn too, even though I've baked my own bread for years, have made home made soups, have two deep bed vegetable gardens, fruit trees, berry bushes, herbs, etc. I think this is a lifestyle that we'll always be learning in. I haven't read these books, but I think your children will learn by your examples. emoticon

Welcome! I haven't read that particular book of hers, so I couldn't answer that. I'm sure your lifestyle will become part of your family's way of eating.
I am becoming a vegetarian for the simple reason that I can't stand the way our meat industry runs, but I may look into local, ethically raised and see if I can afford it for occasional meals.
Anyway, best of luck!

Okay, so I've eaten fairly healthy for the last few years, choosing whole grains, lots of fruit & veg, reading labels, etc. Sometimes even thinking that I could go vegetarian without too much struggle. However, having a carnivore for a husband and two typical kids does tend to derail my best-laid plans. For the last couple months I have been reining in my own eating even further, cutting out sugar and processed foods, and tracking my calories on SP. When I stumbled across this team yesterday, something in my head screamed, "This is the way I was meant to live!" The basic tenents are what I have chosen for myself, although I have a lot to learn. I just bought Tosca's book for my Kindle and I am excited to start reading it. Question: has anyone read the "kids & family" version of the book? I know my food decisions directly impact my kids' eating, but was wondering if there were enough specific suggestions in that book to make it worth buying it as well. Thanks!
