SALE NOW CLOSED; SO SORRY YOU MISSED IT! FEEL FREE TO READ BELOW FOR INFORMATION ON TRULY INCREDIBLE HEALTH RESOURCES, NOW AVAILABLE SINGLY AT EACH AUTHOR’S SITE.
Calling all Science geeks!
When I began my real food journey, one of the things of utmost importance to me was well-sourced information. I quickly gained a reputation here at Kitchen Stewardship as someone who does the research, who delves deeply into various questions and returns with facts, studies, and often as many questions as answers.
(By the way, if you’re going to start a blog, I recommend becoming known for short, humorous posts. Research posts take a long time!)
The quest for good health is often the quest for information.
Truly, knowledge is power.
In the age of the Internet, there is no shortage of information…but it can be daunting to sift through it for the best factual explorations, the most succinct presentations, and answers to your questions that resonate with truth for you, and that also have anecdotal success stories along with them.
If you or someone you love has any of the following health conditions, you’ll want to keep reading for some help on the sifting:
depression (postpartum or otherwise)
oral health issues
folate deficiency and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR)
If you appreciate resources on your quest for the natural life, the following may also be of interest for you:
herbs and herbal remedies
natural healing for cold and flu
mastering grain-free baking with coconut flour
natural beauty/personal products
how to create an herbal first aid kit
tools for transitioning to real food
how to shop for sustainable food
how to cook and eat leafy greens
bone broth tutorials and soup demonstrations
lacto-fermentation or sourdough
successfully eating gluten-free
allergen-free menu planning
WAPF diet information
raw milk research
I wanted to say “no thanks,” when I was invited to participate in this eBook bundle sale, because I didn’t want to overdo it. I felt like I had just shared the primal living bundle, and the healthy living bundle from the fall wasn’t very long ago, either.
When I started reading the list of participants and topics, however, I couldn’t help it. The audience for this collection is totally different, and I feel certain some of you waiting in the wings will want to jump on it.
Many of these books are not even available for sale as a stand-alone, and hardly any have been in a bundle sale before. You will NOT end up with a hard drive full of more recipes if you purchase this bundle.
The Health Library Sale will truly give you powerful knowledge, and I can hardly believe how much is included. Over $800 worth of downloadable eBooks, audio lectures, video presentations (both lecture and cooking demos), meal plans, and more. You get them all for $39.97. (That’s not a typo.)
If you’ve ever wanted to get started with herbs, this is the resource for you.
If you have any of the health problems I listed above, or know someone close to you who does, you’ll find inspiration and information throughout the collection.
If you need new and unique resources to start the journey of a new diet and healthier lifestyle, you won’t be disappointed here.
I’m pretty sure The Everything Beans Book, my humble contribution, is the most boring resource in the bunch.
The collection of over 50 products is truly a health library, for those of you who value information, and who are the ones reminding me, “Where’s your source, Katie?”
UPDATE: I’ve posted some interviews with various authors in the bundle, if you’re interested in learning more about them:
- Laurie Neverman of Common Sense Health and Christy Pooschke of A Fibromyalgia Recovery Story: Eating Outside The Box right HERE.
- Tracy McCullough of Ultimate Secrets to Acne Freedom and Todd Caldecott, Dip. Cl.H., RH(AHG) of Holistic Approaches in the Treatment of Diabetes Mellitus right HERE.
- Starlene Stewart of Baking with Coconut Flour, KerryAnn Foster of Family-Friendly Allergen-Free Menu Planner, and Jennifer Steinbachs, ND of Spring Cleansing – The Local Way right HERE
I’ve tried to skim through most of these and will include a little note as I think it would help you make your decision:
Relieve Common Conditions and Diseases
- Rebuild from Depression: A Nutrient Guide by Amanda Rose, Ph.D. and Annell Mavrantonis, M.D (200 pages; $19.97) (available on Amazon)
- probably the foremost real food look at depression available today; Rose sources extensively and will satisfy any science geek
- Adrenal Fatigue Solutions by Pat Robinson (127 pages, $59)
- a 9-week program to wellness from fatigue, including all natural methods and healthy foods
- Aging: Cumulative Knowledge from Peer Review Studies by Sayer Ji (131 pages; $29.99)
- if you want a source of research, this is the collection
- Infertility: Cumulative Knowledge from Peer Review Studies by Sayer Ji (34 pages; $9.99)
- A Fibromyalgia Recovery Story: Eating Outside The Box by Christy Pooschke (50 minutes; $14.95)
- an engaging talk detailing Christy’s return from being so much in pain that she would have days where she would not talk and could not even wear a seatbelt because it hurt when it touched her skin…at age 25. Doctors gave her no hope for recovery; real food did it in months.
- Cancer Isn’t a Death Sentence by Marcia Schaefer, D.C (115 pages; $29.99)
- Dr. Schaefer, a chiropractor, details her experience kicking cancer with Gerson Therapy – interesting, but written as if emails to friends. I wish it was more professional and informative along with the personal testimony…
- Ultimate Secrets to Acne Freedom by Tracy McCullough (116 pages; $29)The photo at right pretty much tells the story – I thought of this book when a cousin told us she started Acutane this weekend and was so excited that her skin was looking better. There is natural, real food hope for acne!!
- Holistic Approaches in the Treatment of Diabetes Mellitus by Todd Caldecott, Dip. Cl.H., RH(AHG) (22 pages: $17.99)
- Understanding The Right-Brained Child by Cindy Gaddis (70 minutes; $8)
Plant Remedies: Herbs, Oils and Trees
Any of these books alone is an excellent herbal education; the whole bunch of them is practically a college course.
- Practical Herbs by Henriette Kress (150 pages; $9.50)
- Introduction to Tree Medicines by Darcey Blue French (38 pages; $19.99)
- Herbal Remedies for Children During the Cold and Flu Season by Rosalee de la Forêt (88 pages; $20)

- Of Thorn and Petal: The Remedy in the Rose by Kiva Rose (50 pages; $9.99)
- Listen to the Ancient Mother Wisdom by Kimberly Crail (23 pages; $10)
- Meh. If you’re a Christian, skip this one.
- Numen: The Healing Power of Plants A Resource Guide (37 pages; $12)
Natural Living and Healthy Lifestyle
- Natural Beauty Recipes by Katie (Wellness Mama) (37 pages; $10)
- Homemade hair color, makeup, lotions and more – a great resource for gift-giving and cutting costs on (and toxins out of) personal care.
- Wildly Natural Skin Care Oils by Michelle Czolba (41 pages, $9.95)
- Salves Made Simple by Jennifer Saleem (41 pages, $9.95)
- Common Sense Health: Detox, Diet and Physical Activities by Laurie Neverman (40 pages; $8.99)
- I love Laurie! She has been a reader here at KS for a long time and I often learn from her blog posts. We’ll probably hear more from her later in the week…
- Detoxifying Your Home – Inside and Out by Dawn Lorenz (25 pages; $9.99)
- Stress Relief for Parents by Genevieve Simperingham (50 minutes; $25)
- Audio meditations…it wasn’t something I could multitask doing! Not sure if it’s my style…
- Introduction to Energy Healing by Tracy Liebmann (24 pages and video resources; Retail $18)
- Whispers from The Universe: 30 EFT Scripts for Feeling Great by Deborah Donndelinger (48 pages, demonstration videos; $25)
- Also probably not appropriate for Christians, in MY personal opinion, but you don’t have to download everything.
General Tools for Better Nutrition
- 100 Days of Real Food Challenge by Lisa Leake (73 pages; Bonus)
- If you don’t already know Lisa…you probably should.
- The Savvy Shopper’s Guide to Sustainable Food by Raine Saunders (121 pages; $24)
- I knew most of this info (I’m guessing upon a quick skim) but for those of you who want better sourced meat and veggies but aren’t sure where to begin in your location, Raine’s book is a great tutorial.
- The Whole Foods Revelation by France Morissette (102 pages; $19.95)
- The Everything Beans Book by Katie Kimball (That’s me!) (95 pages; $8.95)
- Hopefully you’re already the happy owner of The Everything Beans Book and well-versed in the real food lifestyle. Even with this book tossed out, you’re getting more than a bargain from the package.
- Eat More Leafy Greens by Cynthia Lair (20 pages; $6.99)
- I thought a book completely about greens might be kind of dumb, but I actually really enjoyed Lair’s book and will be referring to it again and again as CSA season approaches. I’d like to eat more greens as themselves rather than tucked into other dishes, and the formula for how to do it deliciously is a winner in this ebook.
- Off The Shelf by Kris Bordessa (43 pages, $7)
- Homemade condiments, etc.
- Broth: Elixir Of Life by Patricia Lacoss-Arnold (59 pages; $8.99)
- I am inspired, even after broth week last week, to make chicken stock in a new way after reading Patricia’s in-depth guide. She dispels some myths about faster cooking, if you’re curious… I also know if I’m ever the recipient of fish heads, I can look up the tutorial for fish stock on my hard drive instead of trusting a random Google search!
- The New Health Paradigm by Anthony Gucciardi (99 pages; $19.97)
- Lacto-Fermentation by Wardee Harmon (155 pages; $20)
- Everything Wardeh does, but especially fermentation, is fabulous! Any fermenting I’ve done beyond homemade yogurt has been thanks to her.
- Simply Sourdough by Melissa Naasko (30 pages; $2.99)
- Melissa is another favorite reader/blogger of mine, and her culinary background shows in this helpful guide. Honestly, if you know what the “crumb” of the bread really means beyond grabbing a broom, you’re rocking out on the bread front in my book (and Melissa does).
- A Healthy Soda by Donna Schwenk (9 minutes; $6.99)
Gluten-Free Living Tools
- 7 Habits of a Gluten-Free Warrior by Peter Osborne
- This informative talk caught my attention a few times – gotta love it when people talk with disgust about the government recommendations for “8-10 whole grains a day.”
- Baking With Coconut Flour by Starlene Stewart
- As someone who has random flat grain-free muffins (ahem, yesterday) after batches and batches of good ones, I will be referring to Starlene’s book often. I learned a few good tricks just on the initial skim, including why my date sugar muffins didn’t rise yesterday (I should have added lemon juice, even though I don’t usually when I make the same muffins with honey, but I won’t tell the secret why). If you are thinking about going grain-free or gluten-free, this is an excellent resource.
- Traditional Soup Workshop with Whole Grain Gluten-Free Muffin Cookbook Bonus by Kimi Harris
- I love everything Kimi does! I have used almost ten soup recipes from her book, Ladled, and this video demonstrates a few of the tougher-sounding ethnic ones (which I haven’t tried). The muffin mini book is almost my favorite in the entire collection, because I have never figured out much about gluten-free baking with all those flours, but this might be the key to me learning a thing or two AND putting it into practice!!
- Family-Friendly Allergen-Free Menu Planner by KerryAnn Foster
- Quinoa Fit by Wendy Polisi
- If you’ve ever searched for a quinoa recipe online, you’ve found Wendy’s blog for sure. I cannot believe the number of ways this woman can fit quinoa into a meal plan! Lots of good recipes here.
- Divine Dinners: Gluten-Free, Nourishing, Family-Friendly Meals by Lydia Joy Shatney
The Weston A. Price Nutritional Perspective and Tools
- Nourishing Our Children (97 pages; $20)
- All the info about how to feed children a WAPF style diet from pre-conception through to when they take over making their own food decisions; enough factual references that your inner science geek will be soothed.
- Essential Elements of Whole Health by Amy Love, NTP, CGP, CILC (110 pages; Retail $49)
- A lovely little collection of resources, including a soups recipe book, gluten-free and grain-free pancake/muffin cookbook, and a guide on how to follow WAPF eating principles. Sounds shorter and easier to digest than Nourishing Traditions itself!
- Thrifty Food Plan Experience by Millie Copper (67 pages; $8.95)
- meal plans and recipes to show how a family of five eats real food (WAPF) on $172/week; a response to the USDA’s recommendations for a family her size.
Health and Natural Living White Papers
White papers are kind of like reading a very smart person’s term paper, except that the professor wrote it instead of the students. They usually have gads of research references. Inner science geeks, you better come out of hiding!

I do have all the books and videos and such, so if you have any questions about any of them, feel free to ask in the comments.
And again, although I know it’s probably not for everyone, I hope this is a gem of a resource for some of you, since it’s such a departure from the other bundle deals and I just know there are a few out there who really desire this health information, all in one place. (It’s a heck of a deal!)
The sale lasts for 10 days only and ends Thursday, March 7th, at midnight PST.
