A food-choice toolkit and recipe book perfect for fans of the Low Tox Life podcast, Cornersmith, Anna Jones, War on Waste, Matthew Evans.

What are the best foods to put in your shopping basket for your health and for the planet? Is it necessary to cut out meat, almonds and go organic? Who can afford it anyway?

Bestselling author of Low Tox Life and 'ultimate gentle activist' Alexx Stuart clears a path through the rules so stridently laid down by proponents of particular diets. She turns the tables on a supermarket system that is geared strongly against our health and the environment, and points to the how rather than the what. Because questioning how your food is grown is the key to unlocking dependence on a broken food system and to finding easy and delicious answers to that daily conundrum: what's for dinner?

Low Tox Life Food is packed with inspiration and stories from regenerative farmers, checklists for what to ask about the produce you buy, ways to afford better choices, as well as 80 of Alexx's most requested recipes for budget-friendly, easily adaptable meals without waste.

If you want to feel more certain and more hopeful about the future of food and our planet, this book is for you.
