it was ok

While this book promotes some great concepts (i.e., raw foods, juicing, limiting meat consumption, maintaining your body's pH balance, environmental impact of the foods we eat), there was nothing new in it for me. If you are already a health conscious person, you won't find anything groundbreaking in here. The language, while cute at first, became irritating about halfway through. I actually thought it diminished her credibility. But my biggest gripe was the almost judgmental way Kris looks at people who eat meat, dairy, and don't subscribe to a 100% vegan, gluten-free, caffeine-free lifestyle. I'm sorry, but health need not be so extreme, and for most people this is not practical. Calling meat "corpse" and dairy "mucus" and promoting do-it-yourself enemas just became too much for me. I do not advocate a vegan lifestyle and don't like to be subject to the notion of superiority that people who eat this way sometimes carry. To be fair, if you had cancer like Kris did, I'm sure you'd be willing to try anything at all costs, but for healthy people just trying to focus on conscious eating and positive lifestyle, this book goes a bit too far.
