Wendyl Nissen's supermarket companion
From the bestselling author of Domestic Goddess on a Budget, A Home Companion and Mother’s Little Helper comes Wendyl Nissen’s latest book about additive-free living.
Find out what happens to Wendyl during the two years she spends writing her popular New Zealand Herald column Wendyl Wants to Know. You’ll discover:
· A comprehensive Food Code Table listing every food code, what ingredient it represents and what it could do to you.
· The 49 additives you should avoid.
· Which artificial food colourings are banned in the USA and UK but are allowed into our food.
· What is really in 48 popular supermarket products.
Protect your family from supermarket foods laden with dangerous additives by shopping better and making some of the 76 easy, real food recipes created by Wendyl for you.
Don’t head to the supermarket before reading this book, perhaps even take it with you!
I have read three chapters so far and have found them fascinating and occasionally alarming. Wendyl's introduction should be compulsory reading for us all. Here is a brief excerpt:
THIS BOOK STARTED with a suggestion from Weekend Herald readers who thought it might be nice to have all the newspaper columns in one book for easy access. It finished up being a story about a woman who started reading labels and what happened to her along the way.
I hope you find it mostly entertaining, at least informative and that in some way it might change a little or a lot about the way you eat and look after yourself and your family.
