I realize it has been some time since this book has launched. I felt a huge affirmation as I read Eat and Think Yourself Smart in 2016. I sensed strongly that my desire to raise as much of my own food as possible, teaching others as I learned, sharing my ideas and experiences was a an inspired path. It has taken some time to manifest and truly is still in its beginning stages.
About the Book
Dr Caroline Leaf takes on the Modern American Diet(MAD) advocating the importance of real local food for all. She speaks to the food choices we have and the impact that “cheap” food has on our health. When one considers the rising cost of health, it is not such a bargain after all. A large section of Eat and Think Yourself Smart takes a look at how the brain functions. Dr Leaf’s Geodesic Information Processing Theory formed the basis for her 30 (+)years of research with clients and research. She includes a 21 day diet plan complete with recipes. This book ends with a note section(73 pages) from which one may continue to research the subject of the impact our food choices have.
Most intriguing to me is the study of the brain, our thought processes and how we can change our brain structure by changing our thought patterns. This concept has been studied extensively and unfortunately not taught in our public school system. In this book Dr Leaf shares how we may use the concept to learn a new outlook on choosing food and eating. I am still applying what I learned for it is not a concept that changes over night. This is not about a quick fix, but rather an invitation to shift our perspectives and begin making healthier food choices.
Eat and Think Yourself Smart became one of my inspirations to move forward with a homesteading lifestyle and share the journey to inform others of ways that they might produce their own food. It is a journey for me as I work to change my own thoughts toward food and put new habits in place when making food choices.
