Review & Giveaway: It Starts With Food

A few weeks ago, I shared all the personal reasons I thought you should pre-order It Starts With Food, the must-have new book from Melissa and Dallas Hartwig, founders of the Whole30. Today, I want to tell you the concrete, have-nothing-to-do-with-the-fact-that-I-adore-them reasons you should absolutely, 100% read this book if you’re interested in having your best life possible.

I know! That’s a big wind up. But I’m not kidding! As the title suggests, feeling our best really does start with the food we eat at every meal. And as the book says in its whiz-bang of a kickoff:

The food you eat with makes you more healthy or less healthy… There is no food neutral; there is no food Switzerland—every single thing you put in your mouth is either making you more healthy or less healthy.

For people who’ve read the Whole9 blog, attended a seminar, or maybe even tackled a Whole30, the first question is probably, “Why should I read the book? I get it.”

I respectfully posit that you don’t “get” all of it — because this book is packed with new information. It’s like Melissa and Dallas read every research study available, then put their new knowledge through the meat grinder of their common sense approach, added the spice of their wicked-sharp sense of humor, and rolled out tasty little meatballs of information that are delicious and easy to digest.

A Quick Romp Through The Book

One of the things that I found most irresistible about the Whole30 when I started following Melissa  and Dallas’s guidelines in 2009 is that M&D were able to present their case in ways that made it impossible to say no. What they said was so reasonable — “Just try it and see how you feel. — there was no counter argument. Now imagine that case-building awesomeness for 300 pages. At each turn, M&D anticipate your concerns, your questions, your hangups, and they provide science, anecdotes, and encouragement to help you overcome your hesitations.

Starting with the Good Food Standards, the book progresses through the foods that make us less healthy, including the all-important how they make us less healthy— then moves into the good news: foods that make us more healthy. For paleo people, the food lists aren’t surprising, but the wealth of details about the why and how is eye-opening and, frankly, great affirmation for those of us already eating this way.

The second half of the book addresses pressing practical matters: meal planning, portion sizes, and the holy grail of kicking ass in the name of your own good health: the Whole30. But again, this is the Whole30 through a new lens, with lots of additional details about how you’ll feel during your Whole30 and why.

For those of use who are special, special snowflakes with past eating issues or health concerns, the chapters that deal with strategies for long-term success and special populations are especially helpful. If you’ve completed a Whole30 you know, when the “safety” of the rules ends, it can be even more challenging to remain true to those shiny new habits. The practical information in these chapters is dead-on.

5 Other Awesome Things About The Book

1. They understand the emotional side of the equation.
Food is more than nourishment for our bodies. We eat for all kinds of reasons: emotions, hormonal wonkiness, hunger. It Starts With Food respects the complicated relationship we have with food and addresses these “squishier” issues, along with the science. And while Melissa and Dallas are well-known (and well-loved) for their tough love approach to the Whole30, their book delivers the science with compassion:

You struggle with food cravings, bad habits, compulsions, and addictions. You know you shouldn’t, but you feel compelled to eat these foods. Sometimes, you don’t even want them, but you eat them anyway…. All of which makes you feel guilty and stressed—and more likely to comfort yourself with even more unhealthy food. We’re here to tell you: It’s not your fault. You’re not lacking willpower. You are not lazy. And it’s not your fault that you can’t stop eating these foods.

No, they’re not giving us all a free pass to dive face first into a box of doughnuts, but this precursor to the explanation of why some foods are so difficult to resist, both physically and emotionally is brilliant stuff.

2. The info is rich; the design is playful.
This book is serious in the value it provides, but it’s fun in the way it delivers that value. Throughout the pages, sidebars, a funky font, and illustrations keep you moving and break up the information into bite-sized chunks — all without sacrificing the flow of the story. Melissa and Dallas weave a tale that makes the conclusion inevitable: this is the healthiest way to eat. But the journey to that conclusion is enjoyable and manageable.

3. Sass, baby. Sass.
A few sample subheads to show you that while the subject matter is vitally important, there’s no reason we can’t all have a good time while reading about how to take excellent care of ourselves:
— Prime Rib and Oreos
— Cranky Cookie
— Don’t Move My Cheese
— Coconut: The Other White Meat
— Lions and Tigers and Saturated Fats, Oh My! (This might be my favorite one ’cause I reference this line from The Wizard of Oz all the time!)

4. What To Expect
While it’s just a few pages in length, this section speaks volumes for helping new and repeat visitors to the Whole30 mentally prepare for what their bodies are going to do when some of their favorite foods disappear from their plates. Our bodies can be moody SOBs when we mess with their routines, and I think these passages about how the Whole30 will roll are pretty kickass.

5. The Meal Map
Yes, that’s right: I’m tooting my own horn. I’m immensely proud of the work that Melissa, Dallas, Dave, and I did together on the Meal Map. Providing a meal-by-meal plan for readers seemed very “anti” the philosophy of the Whole30 and paleo, but we didn’t want to leave people without some kind of meal guidance. The Meal Map evolved out of a desire to demonstrate how easy it can be to eat the right foods without resorting to either “Boring Grilled Chicken and Broccoli Syndrome” or overly-complicated recipes. The Meal Map combines basic cooking techniques with the “You Know How You Could Do That” approach in Well Fed. And I can tell you, friends, every one of those recipe ideas tastes just as good as Dave’s photos look.

  17. Lindsay says:

    I already like you on facebook and I just liked Whole9, which I should have done long ago.

    My number one food of delight is pizza, all flavors and varieties. I have tried a bunch of different kinds of paleo pizza and none are as good as the “real thing.”

  20. Amber says:

    I already bought and am currently reading It Starts With Food, but would love to enter the contest for a copy of Well Fed. I’m only 53 pages into the book and can say that it is one of the most approchable and easy to relate to health books I have read. Also helps that they clearly have science in their corner. So, to those that don’t win I would still recommend it if you want to really know Paleo.

    And the food I want to magically be good for me is Mac and Cheese made with heavy whipping cream. I used to eat that by the box.

  21. Jennifer Q says:

    chocolate cheesecake

  26. I already ‘liked’ you both on Facebook, thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  27. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this review. And for your Meal Map genius. And for your wit, charm, and unending supply of positivity. And for your talented husband. And his camera. Pretty much thank you for you, because you rock, and we love you dearly.

    This contest rocks too! Good luck, all.

    P.S. I choose cupcakes. But I refuse to be boxed into one flavor and frosting, so I’m bending the rules and just saying, “I wish ALL cupcakes made me more healthy.”

    I’m going to go with pizza – italian sausage, onions, mushrooms and exra cheese – or maybe I should just go with the m&m’s that I just reached for when faced with an emotional overload. How fortuitous that right before I shoved another handful into my mouth, I came upon your facebook post about this offer and the discussion about the emotional side of the equation…help. I already like you, whole9 and Whole30 on Facebook…sorry, don’t follow twitters though. Really, really would love this offer!!!!!!

  33. Tina B says:

    I’d love it if hot fudge sundaes were magically healthy!

  34. Kimberly says:

    The one food I wish would magically be one of those foods that makes us “more” healthy would have to be husband’s homemade pizza dough and practically any topping combination (sausage and loads of cheese leaps to mind…)

    I like you on Facebook.

  50. Michelle says:

    I’m going to have to go with Nacho Cheese Doritos for my dream health food, too. Luckily, they contain gluten, so they’re dead to me now, but Trader Joe’s makes a gluten-free knock-off that I have to convince myself doesn’t exist every month.

    I think it’s a toss-up between pizza and fresh bread. I used to bake bread every few days and hot bread fresh from the oven is so good…. :-(

  70. Peggy C says:

    deep-dish pizza and any wonderfully, glutenous, sugary dessert… chocolate chip cookies, cheesecake, scones, i could go on!

  80. Andrea says:

    It’s too hard to choose just one! A few of the things on my list are nachos, cinnamon rolls, and brownies.

  81. Cat says:

    Remind me not to read the comments to this post anymore – now I’m hungry! For me, the food would have to be multi-grain cheerios. Weird, I know. But they were a staple for me and I miss them!

    Pancakes. I have yet to try a Paleo version, I will eventually. A long run pre Paleo was followed by an indulgence in pancakes. I think I actually miss them!

  185. Brooke says:

    Just followed you on twitter! Your pumpkin faux jacks are amazing! My husband wants me to make them every day. I used to wish pancakes were healthy but no need to now!

  199. Sofie says:

    I wish baked Mac and cheese was health food…

  200. Shawna A says:

    If I could pick a food to magically be more healthy, it’d have to be frozen yogurt with reeses PB cups and heath bar. And anything with caramel. And spinach and cheese calzones. And red wine. Oops. At least I have trained myself to drink my coffee black…need your Well Fed recipes!

  201. Shawna A says:

    I already like Whole 9 on FB. I have loved you both for a while now, back when Melissa used to have urban/byersgetdiesel.com…used to waste all kinds of company time on both of your blogs! Thanks for this offer.

  222. natalie says:

  225. Monique says:

    I wish that popcorn smothered in butter – and then more butter – was a food that made me more healthy. Damn you, popcorn.

  226. Jenna says:

    Oh how I wish I could make cheese – all kinds, from the fancy schmancy aged cheddar from Ireland to the overly processed Velveeta mystery cheese – was healthy. That and of course, pizza. Pizza!

  227. Monique says:

    I liked you on Facebook.

  240. Lori says:

    What an awesome giveaway! I am so looking forward to reading this book.

    The food I have missed the most is the French batard loaf sold at our local coop food market – cut into thick slices, slathered with cool butter, and sprinkled lightly with salt before being savored, usually accompanied by moans of incredulous delight….. LE SIGH.

    I can’t swear I will never eat that again. Just not every week like I used to. And certainly not until I lose these last 40 pounds. (I’ve lost 70 already!)

  241. Jenna says:

    Just liked your Facebook page!

  242. Jenna says:

  281. Andrea Robinson says:

    I already follow you. Your paleo pad thai with sunshine sauce was a life saver, I tell everyone about it! The one craving I wish would grant me nutritional serenity would be homemade pasta. Nothing comes close to that texture, and that feel. All I can say is thank god for spaghetti squash.

  287. Jenell says:

    I was rushing to work one day and hadn’t eaten lunch and stopped at a gas station and bought a BIG bag of Doritos–and ate it all–and hid the evidence. Moment of weakness! Oh, damn you, salty, greasy goodness!

  288. Amy says:

    And I followed you on twitter! @amytube

  289. Jenell says:

    Mel, I “like” you on f.b. ;) Another food I miss in theory is polenta and cheese (must be because it’s kinda Doritos-like?).

  294. Jenell says:

    I just liked Whole9 on f.b. And my last confession, hmmm…. I don’t know, sometimes I crave crazy things that I never really liked to begin with, like cupcakes, and I think, “Hmmm…my body must need some good carbs.” That goes for the Doritos cravings, too. And then I just need to get some good fats in (unless, a-hem, I’m having a moment of weakness). Thank you so much for this generous giveaway. :D

  295. Melissa G says:

    You are liked on FB!!

  296. Dy says:

    It would not break my heart if Diary Queen Oreo Blizzards could be morphed into making me more healthy. That’s one thing I just can’t replicate *or* make healthy.

    Cream, so I can whip it up! But this would also have to come with the magical cure to my dairy sensitivity!

  301. Insomniac Mom says:

    Oh, HANDS DOWN, the seven-layer chocolate cake from The Palm restaurant. One slice is easily the size of my head, and oh, how I wish that it were Paleo and Whole30 complaint. :)

    And I liked Whole9 on Facebook. :)

  443. Becca S. says:

    I just got the book and I’m loving it. I know a lot of people who should read it, though, so an extra copy to give away would be awesome. I definitely wish chocolate souffle could be more healthy. At least the chocolate souffle from Capsouto Freres in Manhattan. It’s pretty much the best dish ever.

  505. Therese says:

    I’m just a few chapters into the book but it’s already making an impact on the choices I’m making and my way of thinking about food and health. Although the list of foods I wish were healthy is long my first choice is the absolutely disgusting Kraft Mac and Cheese served COLD from the fridge and liberally salted. It’s unbelievable to me now that at one time that was comfort food!

  506. Natalie says:

    Is this open to international readers, or just US/Canada? In hopes that it is open to international readers, here’s my entry!

    One food I wish was healthy & therefore a guilt-free indulgence. Chips, biscuits – anything with a crunch, really! & those usually fried in oil. I’m a texture lover, & love the sound of the crunch. So chips, whether potato or corn.

    I’m with you on the peanut butter too. I miss it & could eat a lot if allowed :P

  507. Kristen says:

    lot’s of chocolate and ice cream… I would eat one bar of chocolate(the good kind is fine) and like a quart of ice cream a day and maybe an apple if I were to just eat what I want. I never crave meat and never have. My parents used to buy almonds for me b/c I could barely gag down meat my whole life. I could never be one of those — “just feel what your body wants you to eat” people. My body is screaming 1/2 the time for chocolate or ice cream and the other half for fruit. and when I’m pregnant it adds “CAKE!”

  508. Sara says:

    The foods would not only have to be paleo it also couldn’t make your guts feel upside down. Mine would be german pastries with the sweet cream cheese filling…. Add some fresh berries and your in heaven.

  509. Lisa says:

    Oh, how can I pick just one??? I think the two foods I miss most from my pre-healthy eating life are chocolate chip cookies and Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers from Wendys.

    I’m a certified pastry chef and have won awards for my bread pudding with butterscotch sauce. If I could magically make that healthy it would be the very best ever, first because it’s the most comforting hug you could ever get from a dessert, two because it’s my crowning achievement for my career (so far) and third because I could totes convince TONS of people to go paleo if something that tasted so good was healthy.

    Haha, so I started reading your post today thinking that I was reading another one of my feeds and got uber excited when I saw you mention your cookbook thinking “OH, I have to post this to your page that the local what to do blog is talking about Melissa!”. Then I realized that I was reading your page. Night shift brain….

    Would LOVE LOVE LOVE if my homemade sourdough pancakes with peanut butter slathered on it were Paleo. But they’re not. And pizza with a hard cider – it’s like crack….

  535. argus says:

    i’d love it if lasagna we’re made healthy instantly

  536. Jennie says:

    I wish that sourdough bread with butter was paleo. It is actually the taste that is so delicious, but then I feel crummy, so I am glad that I am learning about paleo and food and my body’s response. I would love to win this book and learn more, also I am saving to buy your cookbook, so I would love to win that too. :)

    My dream food is pretty simple: potato chips, in particular Utz classic plain chips. Sure, they have the Grandma Utz chips that are fried in lard but they still are not making me healthier. What I really love is when I first open up the bag and the smell of the salty potato-y yumminess wafts out. Kale chips are awesome but just not the same.

  646. Lizzie says:

    Hello. My name is Lizzie and I’m a cookie addict.

    Seriously though, this is really tricky. I live in Singapore so everything local is so very un-paleo; everything has soy in it, or is served with noodles, or laced with sugar in various forms (oooh…. sweet and sour pork, my nemesis), but oh so very yummy… It’s really hard to be paleo in Asia and if anyone has any good advice, hints, tips and suggestions, I am all ears.

    Deep down though I think the thing I wish was healthy would be my mum’s homemade lasagna. It contains pretty much everything on the no-no list. She uses at least twice the amount of white sauce (made with cream and full cream milk, and white flour) extra pasta sheets but not so many it’s cakey, and lashings of red wine to make the sauce super flavoursome, all topped off with a generous serving of cheese. Any kind of cheese, but romano and parmesan usually. Served with homemade garlic bread. No veg except for the mushrooms in the meat mix.

    It’s sloppy comfort food that brings the whole family together in harmony, and makes you flop back in your chair and say ‘aaaaaaaaah’.

    I follow you all on twitter (@just_lizzie); need all the help I can get!

    Has to be cake – particularly Nigel Slater’s carrot cake. But it’s made with sunflower oil instead of butter….ugh….gives it an amazing texture but these days I just don’t think I could.

    Oh and did I mention I love cake and wish it was paleo and Whole9 approved :) I can dream!

  701. Christina D. says:

    Oh wow, one food I wish that would magically be more healthy would be a simple bean and cheese burrito from my favorite Mexican Restaurant back home.

  702. Mary Ann Clingan says:

    One food that I would love to be healthy is Nachos. Thanks for all your hard work (I got Well Fed on my Kindle!).

  703. Mary Ann Clingan says:

    I liked you on Facebook (and I like you in general, LOL).

  704. Marla Sarris says:

    OMG I live down the street from a Dunkin Donuts and every time my friend Dave comes to town that’s where he goes to get coffee and I’m tempted by the ice cream SO SO bad. I wish the Dunkin Donuts chocolate chip ice cream smoothie was Primal. I’ve made my own version but you know it’s not the same :p

    It’d be great if ice cream and beer were healthier, though maybe not together.

    The one food I wish would magically be healthier for me…ohhhhh, tie between Hawaiian pizza (Canadian bacon, mushrooms and pineapple) and ice cream (specifically Baskin Robbin’s World Class Chocolate)

  718. Grilled cheese sandwich on homemade French bread with sharp cheddar, mozzarrella, parmesan, and cream cheese. Cooked with butter, of course.

  721. I like Whole9 on facebook

  722. I follow Whole9 on Twitter. After admitting to all these likes and follows, I’m starting to feel like a bit of a creeper ;)

  723. Nika S. says:

    I wish there were a ‘love, love, love’ button, but alas, I can only ‘Like” you on FB, (so I did), and I mean that in the most benign, normal, food-obsessed, health-crazed kind of way, if that makes any sense at all.

  724. Nika S. says:

    I also feel the same way, (and subsequently also was only able to ‘Like’ Whole9life on FB

  725. Nika S. says:

    So, now, on to the choice at hand….hmmm (mentally casting about for the utmost, the absolute, the end-all, be-all, as it were….) This choice is made more difficult for me as I am still riding the rollercoaster that is the Pregnancy Hormone Train. I have just had our second son, and between the still-circulating hormones, and the sleep deprivation inherent in every 2 hour feedings, and [as an added bonus, (which he is, by the way)] a three year old to boot, this is a very hard choice, but I am going to have to go with….(wait for it)….
    Pudding.
    yes, pudding…in all its gloriously eggy, rich, beautiful forms, pudding….Rice,(Thick with starchy creaminess); Tapioca (ah, yes, glistening pearls popping between the tongue and the palate); Bread (and the sauces…alcohol-infused lusciousness on a plate, with raisins and cinnamon, oh, my!); Yorkshire (light, and flaky balloons of eggy-ness with which to sop up those unctious meat juices);Plum (would the holidays be the same without its rich soaked flavors? I think not!)
    Dear heavens, put me out of my misery, and let me take a set of books in consolation!

  727. Juanita says:

    Corn Nuts (chile picante or nacho cheese) and Frito Lays, especially a good Frito Pie! I’m a sucker for corn based salty foods!

    I already own your amazing Wellfed book, I even introduced it into Peoples Pharmacy in Austin to sell at all our stores!

    I would love to own It Starts With Food, to spread the word of healthy eating and living!

    If only sourdough bread were good for you! Of course homemade and with butter. I still have some starter in my fridge that I keep alive….I just can’t kill it:(

  731. Andi says:

    This list could get long, so I will say chocolate chip cookies. How I wish they were good for me!
