"Swedish bloggers Aurell and Clase make their life-changing eating habits a source of education, fun, and sustenance for readers. . . . What’s particularly motivational are their personal stories of trial and error, whether it has to do with giving up breakfast or cutting way, way down on sugar intake. . . . Lots of “ahas” will greet the text, from explanations of each individual’s 100 billion good gut bacteria to symptoms of chronic inflammation."
"It's not hard to understand why Food Pharmacy became the best-selling book in Sweden. Scientific studies on how we can eat healthier are presented in an easy-to-understand manner and with a great deal of humor."
—Brodde Wette, CEO Add Health Media
“I recommend Food Pharmacy to everyone. It successfully communicates vital knowledge about nutrition and its correlation with health in a brilliant and easily accessible manner. It invites readers to take responsibility for their health and well-being. While the impact diet has on our health is familiar to many today, not everyone is aware of the facts. Thank you, Food Pharmacy, for contributing to the creation of a healthy and happier world!”
