What the Fork Are You Eating?
With grocery store aisles overflowing with products claiming to be “low-fat,” “gluten-free,” or “natural,” it can seem almost impossible to know what’s actually good for you. That’s where certified chef and nutritionist Stefanie Sacks comes in with her new book, What the Fork Are You Eating?, a straightforward blueprint on how to shop for your health. Featuring an aisle-by-aisle breakdown and 50 original recipes, this practical guide helps readers choose health from cart to kitchen. Go hear Stefanie Sacks read from her book and explain how to best navigate the complexity that is our food system.
