2 books inspired me to begin a different journey with food and my own health.  The first was the Wild Diet by Able James.  He frequently brings interesting guests on his podcast as well.  The Wild Diet helped me break the chains of processed foods.  The 2nd book is the China Study by Colin Campbell.  Although there are some who argue against the data of the China Study, the data is hard to completely refute.  At a certain point, animal protein consumption causes health problems.
