Win a Copy of The Safe Food Handbook

Safe Food Handbook

Author Heli Perrett, PhD, a microbiologist and public health expert, recently published The Safe Food Handbook. The handbook is a guide to finding safe, healthy food. Here’s a summary from the publisher:

Dr. Perrett has created a comprehensive guide that speaks not only to pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and others to whom food safety is of greatest concern, but to anyoneβ€”vegan, confirmed meat-eater, or somewhere in betweenβ€”who wants to feed themselves and their loved ones more safely. From apples and alfalfa to chicken and cheese, The Safe Food Handbook, gives a balanced and comprehensive look at which food risks we should worry about, which age-old precautions are now outdated, and how consumers can proactively protect themselves.

    I’m an English teacher living in Taiwan and I struggle to eat good, healthy food on a daily basis – I need all the help I can get!

    Oh, please pick me! I would love to have a copy of this book. Food safety and nutrition are a passion for me. My partner and I are starting an organic farm specializing in heirloom/heritage varieties and this would be a tremendous help in educating consumers about the benefits of eating a healthful organic diet.

    I went vegan about 18 months ago, and am constantly amazed at the crap that gets snuck into my food if I’m not hypervigilant– I mean really, milk in hash browns, chicken broth in vegetable juice, beef fat in *frosting*, for f***’s sake?! I also am an absolute fiend for avoiding GMO junk & supporting sustainable agriculture… pretty much any food-ethics/ food safety issue gets my undivided attention: this book would find a good & loving home upon my bookshelf!

    WE recently had a scare. The organic baby lettuce we purchased was recalled. We checked the lot number and the use by dates and they matched! We had already consumed the lettuce. It was a voluntary recall with a possibility of listeria! Needless to say it scared the daylights out of us!!!!!!!!!!! Perhaps this book would assist us with better choices. Thank you.

    i would love to own a copy of this book! i’m a lactose intolerant vegetarian with IBS and it’s really hard to find foods that don’t make me sick, because ingredients are often snuck into things where you wouldn’t expect. also i’m really interested in the topic of food security and would love to get more educated on what’s actually safe and what’s not. thank you!

    Fanned on Facebook and newslettered!

    AND I would really like to win this book because, well, I am confused. I don’t know what the risks are, what the research says, or how much of what I think I know is outdated. Plus, after I read it, I’m likely to donate it to my local library!

    Signed up for the newsletter and ‘liked’ on Facebook. So glad my husband sent me the link to your website.

    As a new mother food has taken on a whole new dimension. I am always looking to build my food knowledge so that I can do my best to make sure our family lives long, productive, happy lives together.

    I’ve been researching the food industry as of late and the harmful impact that the western diet has on our bodies. The books that I’ve been reading have been more than eye opening and has caused me to go back to my vegetarian roots as well as to plant my own garden. While I’m waiting for my crops to grow, I’d be thrilled to read a book on safe foods, the accessibility of them and the myths that are now outdated.

    Pick me!
