Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soapbox DVD – For those of you who love Dr. Bronner’s soap (pretty much all of us, right!?), then this is a fun treat of a dvd that my family enjoyed. It’s unique, fun, inspiring, interesting, and touching. If you know someone who uses Dr. Bronner’s soap all the time, then this also makes a great gift. Throughout the DVD, you’ll get to check out the history of the company, enjoy the quirkiness of the founder, and learn the meaning behind all of those words on the label.
Ricki Lake’s The Business of Being Born (DVD) is amazing. Watch this with your birthing partner. Lend it to your family to watch. It’s quite eye-opening and can help get the dialogue going. This DVD covers so many interesting and important statistics and thought-provoking ideas, plus powerful images. I’m so glad I saw this before we started our journey of conscious conception.

Evie’s Kitchen is a delightful book written by Shazzie (a UK sassy super star!). I have many pages in this book tabbed for future reference when my baby is here. This book contains recipes as well as her wisdom about natural birthing, breastfeeding, attachment parenting, co-sleeping, natural immunity and first-aid, and more. It’s FILLED with fun and playful pictures.
Food, Inc. is an amazing, eye-opening, jaw-dropping documentary that should be in every home library. I was fortunate enough to see this opening weekend when we were in NY and heard the director speak after the viewing. Throughout the documentary, I was moved to tears a couple of times. I was riled up. My blood boiled in parts. I was humbled. I was motivated. And, I was inspired. Food, Inc. is a MUST-SEE. I’ve heard a couple people say, “Oh, it’s stuff I already know and has already been shown.” It doesn’t matter. Food, Inc. is to be praised. Read More »
If you haven’t seen it, YOU MUST!!! It’s beautiful, educational, fun, scary, eco-adventure-like and everyone needs to see this. Get educated about sharks like never before. Here is proof of the amazing info you’ll learn: My husband wanted me to learn how to scuba dive and I used to be terrified…because of sharks. Not anymore! This movie makes me want to hug a shark (if only that were possible – ahhh, I can dream). Seriously though, sharks are incredible creatures NEEDING OUR HELP! This terrific documentary has already won 31 international awards!!! Check out the details about Sharkwater here and then buy it here or rent it from Netflix – whichever you want, just do it! It’s amazing! We bought it and lend it out to family and friends to keep sharing the information, not to mention we like watching it a couple of times a year.
I am inspired. I am motivated. I am feeling high after watching this documentary, even though it’s the fifth time I’ve seen it. When the publishers of Food Matters sent me a copy for review, I was elated because it had been on my to-do list for a long time. And, man, am I glad I saw it! I showed it to both my mom and husband and we all wholeheartedly agreed that this is a documentary we want to see a few times a year. It’s that good! Read More »

Food Revolution – By John Robbins. This is the new follow-up to Robbin’s ground-breaking classic, “Diet for a New America.” For those of you who don’t know, Robbins was heir to the Baskin Robbins fortune and gave it up when he came to realize that consuming dairy kills people.
Skinny Bitch – If you need a swift kick in the butt to motivate you to embrace the vegan diet, then this book is for you. It has moxie written all over it. Skinny Bitch is a no-nonsense, super funny, give-it-to-you-straight, can’t-put-it-down, sassy book. It’s one of my favorite gifts to give out during the holidays. Rumor has it that they’re writing a book for the dudes out there, too!
The China Study – This is the earth-shattering book by Columbia University researcher Colin Campbell. If you eat meat or dairy after reading this, you’re in the same category as people who ride fast on motorcycles without wearing a helmet. On ice. Drunk. While doing Sudoku. Seriously, if you want to know the meticulously scientific, scary truth about meat’s causal linkage to cancer, heart disease, and numerous other killers, this is the most important book to read on this list. The chapters on how doctors, hospitals, FDA and the meat/dairy industries have responded to this will get your blood boiling.
