“If you’re concerned that your family stays too rushed to eat the most healthful meals, you may benefit from the guidelines found in a new book called Simple Food for Busy Families. It’s packed with advice, ideas and good recipes.”

But what ultimately makes the tips and recipes in Simple Food… so accessible is the underlying idea that its approaches (like eating seasonal foods) are, in the words of the authors, attuned to ‘the natural rhythms of life.'”
