You are about to delve into the subject of lifestyle and nutrition from a different perspective, perhaps, than you have previously considered. Until our daughter Meenakshi was diagnosed with cancer, we were conventional food eaters. Frankly, if I had not had to seek life force in the most nutrient dense foods available to save my daughter's life, I would be at the grocery store buying the same blank, dead, carcinogenic food like substances I was buying before.
This book is about truth. FOOD can shape or destroy an entire civilization. We are capable of regenerating cells to heal our bodies when given the correct unadulterated nutrients to support the cells.
We need to do everything we can to expand living soils since it is the root of our wellness. Regenerating soil is the basis of food freedom; the result of this practice is health independence - the purpose of this system/cycle is to balance the eco-system, which will stabilize the climate and overall well-being of all life on earth.
Although this book will guide you to a deeper and more practical understanding of what a regenerative lifestyle looks and feels like, my intention is to give you a more conscious awareness of the potential depth and breadth of the power each of you has to influence.
I am the catalyst to reestablish the regenerative small family farm food system in America so we can stop the browning of the earth and restore life giving force back into the soil. Our family committed our lives to healing ourselves, healing our land, and healing others. What will your choice be? #GetOutOfTheGroceryStore

F idhlim Harty explores how and why we need to go zero waste, firstly looking at where waste currently goes, and revealing the hidden world of food and product miles and embodied energy. He shares how to reduce waste room by room, at events, parties, during our travels, and at work. Having minimised waste for over two decades, F idhlim and his family share their clever ideas to eliminate junk, buy wisely, free yourself from useless packaging, reduce not only your eco footprint but your household bills, compost all biodegradables, and reuse, repair and reroute. They share five simple steps to zero waste and inspire us to be active and push for change.
There is a hunger now within society to address the root causes of plastic waste, right back to the point of oil and gas extraction. People want no part in adding to plastics in the oceans or spreading microplastics into our water, soils and food. Nor do they want to be subjected to the cynical betrayal of consumer built-in obsolescence. Patience with government policy and corporate greenwashing is wearing thin. Towards Zero Waste offers clear guidance for anyone wanting to actively be part of the solutions and not the problems.
This debut cookbook by Matt Stone--Head Chef of Australia's renown Greenhouse restaurant--focuses on zero waste cooking, and delves into hot topics in cooking, like fermenting, pickling, eating natural food, and many others. Stone combines green philosophy with his cooking to create a unique take on contemporary cooking. Readers will love the recipes and techniques Stone presents as they make their own smoky eggplant dip, beef soup with greens and mushrooms, or lamb, chickpea, pomegranate, and saffron salads
