From Fast Foods to Slow Foods: How to Wake up Laughing - what people are saying

Noted best selling author and educator, Gary Null, PhD writes:

“Celebrating life and how to appreciate its many gifts begins when we rise our consciousness about the thoughts, foods and beverages that go into our bodies and define our well being. Yvonne Stafford’s new book, From Fast Foods to Slow Foods: How to Wake Up Laughing, is an excellent first step on your journey to health and happiness”.

New York, NY September 2011: In her book: From Fast Foods to Slow Foods: How to Wake Up Laughing, Yvonne Stafford presents the case for changing the focus away from the 21st century habits of eating and living that has resulted in wide spread obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and other chronic diseases; and returning to a lifestyle that is more sane, more traditional, less manufactured, and drug free.

She challenges us to shift our belief in the system in which we have been trained; one of viewing aches, pains and prescription drugs as normal and basic requirements of “modern” living; to one where it is more important to get our health back than to get rid of disease.

“Without question this book should be read by all those parents thinking fast food will replace mom’s home cooking. I applaud Ms. Stafford with the diligence to bring facts and simple logic to the eating problems of America. Great Read!”

Ms Stafford asks,  “How can we even begin to talk about improving our lives without talking about actually taking on the personal responsibility of improving our health?”  Filled with common sense reasons, motivation, and actions that lead to rejecting the external programming of the “Fast Food” life style; this book gives you step by step instructions to begin the conversation and improve your life. It encourages you to adopt a lifestyle of eating a plant-based diet and living mindfully and in harmony with nature. 

The book includes comments on the politics of food, spirituality, traditions, and information and lifestyle practices that can help us live long healthy lives from the cradle to the grave, drug free.

“This book is a message from God to me. Besides being eminently readable and well argued, it is packed with all the survival stuff necessary to make the trip we call life, almost karmic free. Thanks for the wonderful experience itself; a trip inward to travel back out to a healthier life.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed this book and keep it on my kitchen table to try all the recipes. The author’s light is shining in the pages of this book. I loved the conversational style in which it was written, it was like sitting down with the author herself. It really made me embrace the value of raw foods and made me understand so much more what it means to be a healthy me.”
