Revue de presse

"Kristen Michaelis can help rescue your child from the quagmire of unhealthy baby formulas, cereals, and jarred foods while implementing a nourishing lifestyle that is your child's best immunization against illness. I see many happy babies growing up on these kinds of real foods, and I would like to see more."—Dr. Cate Shanahan, MD, author of Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food

"Before civilization, humans once had an innate intelligence about what was edible in their environment and how to prepare it in order to extract the most nutrition from it. Kristen Michaelis walks you through the minefield of conventional nutrition babble to the safety of what thousands of years of cultural traditions have shown: that vibrant health comes from eating what our ancestors ate—unprocessed foods from animals raised as they are supposed to live. This is correct nutrition that needs to be taught in every household and school and handed down from parents to children. This book should be required reading for all parents and those contemplating parenthood."—Jill Tieman, MA, DC, CCN, DACBN, editor of www.RealFoodForager.com

"At the end of October 2012, I found myself lethargic, uninterested in most things, and frustrated with my weight. Most of all, I was disappointed that my husband and I had not conceived, even though we had been trying for over six months. Tracking my ovulation didnÆt seem to help. When I ran across Kristen's website, Food Renegade, a week later, I immediately signed up for her free e-mail course on Beautiful Babies. Who doesnÆt want a beautiful baby? I made little changes at first, then bigger ones as I found reliable sources for real, traditional food. My energy went up, my digestive issues stopped, and it felt like my brain worked again for the first time in years. Best of all, a few days after Christmas, the home pregnancy test I took showed positive. I am eight weeks into my pregnancy with no nausea, enough energy to keep up with my three kids and two dogs, almost no mood swings, and the joy of anticipating a healthy pregnancy for myself and my baby."—Robin Fuentes, Beautiful Babies student

ôI want to thank you a hundred times over for the 'Beautiful Babies' e-course. I followed the recommendations that you made and I had a healthy, complication-free pregnancy and birth. I didnÆt get any stretch marks, varicose veins, no swelling, no pre-eclampsia, etc. I had a water birth with no complications, and I didn't use any painkillers or any drugs! I left the 'birthing center' the same day. I couldn't be happier! Just 1.5 weeks after giving birth and I can fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes."—Keri Hessel, Beautiful Babies student

Orange Cheese Lover Says: This Changed My Life 2 avril 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'm not a foodie. I love processed foods. Orange cheese, McDonalds, tube cookie dough... what the heck is this book on my recommendations page? Why would I even order it? I'm not a Weston Price person or any of those organizations. (15 days ago I had NEVER heard of Weston Price.) Heck, I didn't even know what coconut oil was or what the difference between corn and canola oil was two weeks ago. Why would you want beef that was raised on grass when corn-fed beef doesn't have that kind-of weird taste? And yes, chicken skin is so good, but it's really bad. Now, I eat and sleep and breathe this stuff. I mean it. Amazon somehow figured I might like this. Probably when I was buying a yogurt maker or a Montessori teaching book. I buy nothing else with Organic, Slow Food, Grass-Fed, or the like in the title. It's a little frightening how they could predict. Well, it arrived. I ordered it sort-of irresponsibly because I always feel a little guilty that I can't breast feed. I opened it sitting on the stairs. My kids were yelling for things, but I was glued. Two weeks later we get eggs from a "speak-easy" shed where you leave money for a farmer in town (yes, me, those of you who know me!). The yolks are neon yellow and I feed them to my 5 mo old. We get pasture-raised butter and cream from Whole Foods (best we can do for now) and I have tons of frozen grass-raised meats in my freezer. My life has literally changed. I can never eat the same way again. (And again, readers, I am NOT one of those Prius-driving, Farmer's Market-loving types, really!!!) I think so much of this is true and so much matters. It was an easy read and a brilliant introduction into what is no doubt the most important thing I can do for my children and family -- feed them well. And it's not hard at all.

This book increased my fertility! 7 avril 2013
Par Lala - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
After miscarrying my first pregnancy I was told I had a hormonal imbalance that was possibly PCOS (though I don't fit the standard profile) and it would be necessary for me to use fertility drugs to have a "strong" ovulation. After 8 months of following the recommended low-fat, calorie counting diet that many physicians adhere to, 3 rounds of fertility drugs and 2 failed IUIs, my husband and I were feeling hopeless and helpless (not to mention broke as we had spent some of our house savings for fertility treatments).

At the end of February I pre-ordered this book and took your online "Beautiful Babies" course. I started the course right away and made several immediate changes, most importantly adding in more good fats to my diet as I learned about the important role of cholesterol in hormone production. My TSH(thyroid) levels equalized after 5 months of being elevated and I felt much better. My other hormone levels began to equalize as well (all confirmed by blood test). I ovulated on cycle day 15, whereas I previously ovulated around day 21. My progesterone levels after ovulation on unmedicated cycles used to be around 7 (too low) and this time was 22! Today, April 7, I got a positive pregnancy test! And this was an unmedicated cycle as we had decided to take a break from fertility treatments. My husband and I are ecstatic and excited to continue making changes in our diet and lifestyle, because they are creating very positive changes!

Though I am now pregnant, this book will continue to be important during the next 9 months and especially after baby arrives as there is valuable information on breastfeeding and baby's first foods. As a first time mom, I will definitely be needing some references for these next steps!

*Disclaimer: I just want to make clear that I do not believe that diet alone may be a fertility treatment for everyone, as there can be many factors that cause infertility. I understand the role that fertility treatments play (as does the author of this book) but I think that for those that do need to undergo fertility treatments that this book can be a wonderful supplement that could increase the likelihood of pregnancy.

Ideal nutrition to promote fertility, a healthy pregnancy, breastfeeding, and baby's first solids 26 novembre 2013
Par Holly Scudero - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Kristen Michaelis is well-known in the blogging world for her site “Food Renegade,” which focuses on a traditional foods diet. Now she has applied her knowledge of nutrition to baby-making; “Beautiful Babies” is all about how to eat right to promote fertility, being healthy while pregnant, how a woman's diet can improve the quality of her breastmilk, and venturing into the world of solid foods once the baby is ready. Like many in the traditional foods movement, Michaelis promotes the dietary principles advocated by the Weston A. Price Foundation; unlike some names from that community who have been in the blogging spotlight of late, Michaelis is refreshingly non-judgmental towards women who do not maintain a “perfect” diet. Good nutrition is indeed important, and it is the author's goal to help women work towards it, but she keeps a very positive attitude about it all, offers suggestions to help those who are having a hard time eating certain recommended foods, and even has a section devoted to recipes that even the newest newbie to traditional foods will not find daunting. She also presents tons and tons of research to support what she claims, sourced from a wide variety of places (and with an extensive source chapter to back it up). Michaelis freely admits that she has no educational qualifications for this book, but she is a mom who has researched these topics thoroughly, and the book she has written provides a lot of good information in a very accessible format.

This review originally written for Sacramento/San Francisco Book Review.

Not for me. 4 août 2014
Par TW - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've been on the Weston A. Price Foundation (hereafter WAPF) bandwagon for quite some time now, though I always thought most of its constituents committed themselves to the diet blindly and over-zealously; so aside from reading the occasional post at blogs like Cheeseslave, I've stayed away from the "Real Food" movement (a term I take issue with, but I digress). Unfortunately, Kristen Michaelis' book confirmed a lot of what I'd been wary about in regards to WAPF followers. I tried to read this with an open mind, but it's quite possible I was too biased to give it a fair shake. Take my words with a grain of salt.

First off, I will say that Michaelis includes very little that is not easily available online. I'm not talking about information that you have to dig around for or that's hard to compile. Almost everything in her book is easily accessible by searching "WAPF, pregnancy." Or "WAPF, fertility." The Weston A. Price foundation has a page of dietary guidelines for pregnant women, and many have made blog posts that contain the essentials. What makes this book unique--or what's supposed to make it unique--is the emphasis on a pre-conception diet. She discusses the eating habits of various traditional peoples, and how folks prepared for pregnancy for up to year by undertaking a specific eating regimen high in specific nutrition. That one, tiny slant is not enough to make this book hold up its weight, but all right, I guess.

Another unique argument Michaelis offers (I would like to give credit where credit's due) is that food science and nutrition science is young and therefore we can only trust it so much. A fair point, in my opinion. In terms of food science timelines, we're like, pre Dalton atom model. Every other year, scientists suggest something different about how we should eating. Dairy is good and then it's bad. Eggs raise cholesterol. Oh no wait, only the good kind. Etc etc. Because of this, we should look back to how people in previous generations ate for thousands and thousands and thousands of years, because hey, they found a system that worked, right? It's a compelling argument, though I've been very convinced by certain science writers like Gary Taubes etc that fat is good and sugar is mostly bad (as well as have been convinced by my own lab reports). Further, we really don't know that much about how previous peoples at e. Weston A. Price might have traveled extensively, but not that extensively, and people all over the world have been eating a variety of different ways for a very, very long time.

I took issue with Michaelis' judgmental tone and lack of evidence to support her claims. YMMV.

I always laugh when I get to the "how do I pay for it?" sections of these books, because they're always assuming you're wealthier than you are. If my partner and I spent any more on food, we could not pay rent, and we already live in a very low-income neighborhood. She mentioned that she feeds her large family on a budget smaller than what's allotted by food stamps, and I rolled my eyes again, because though she was just making a point about expense, the way EBT is alotted does not allow for families to buy huge sections of calves in advance like she mentioned doing. Oh, but I guess when I buy my new house (like she did), I'll go ahead and buy a new giant freezer, too.

Again, I digress.

Then she mentioned that one way to afford her diet is that her family is vegan 70% of the year for religious reasons, and I'm like -- okay? After you spend a book arguing that the most important foods are raw milk, grassfed and pastured meat, and pastured eggs you throw that out there as your money-saving tip? She seemed to specifically avoid doing a price breakdown of how her family keeps their food budget under control, but it would've been really helpful to see how one manages to keep an affordable WAPF diet. I can only assume that it's a lot of legumes and grains, which alas, I can't eat, because I'm diabetic, and carbs.

I hope I'm not being too unfair. I agree with so many of the ideas. I survive on a diet of bacon, raw cream, eggs, and fish myself.

When I begin trying to conceive next cycle, I think lots of her advice (which I already knew) will help me give the child the best start possible. I wish that she had spent more time talking about why specific foods were so helpful (why eggs? what vitamins do they have again? A, I think??), how to afford it, and less time fetishizing ancient cultures, which seems to be a hallmark of these texts.

Excellent book for the childbearing years!! 30 décembre 2013
Par Lily Anna - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book comes at a great time for me, as my husband and I are starting our family. I am already familiar w/ Weston A Price for the most part. But I love this new book! Kristen writes in a way that is easy to understand, and provides lots of references.
I discovered Food Renegade via Pinterest, as I do a lot of traditional cooking and I LOVE Kristen's recipes that she posts. I was delighted to learn that she lives just 1/2 hr from me (Austin, TX).
I, like Kristen, have this strong motherly instinct to protect my kids. I feel that what I feed my body while pregnant and breastfeeding, as well as what I put into my kids is critical for their well-being.
A must-read!
