Eating Lean and Green BOOK

Praise for Eating Lean and Green &  Jack and the Bean Stew 

Eating Lean and Green with Super Foods to Save the Planet is a fresh and smart approach to educating kids about their very own "super power" when it comes to food choices. Mrs. Gates has created a simple formula, supported by beautiful and engaging photographs, that is sure to activate a child's enthusiasm for eating "lean and green" - and compassionately with plant-based meals. This book is an excellent addition to every parent or teacher’s bookshelf.  Neal Barnard, M.D., F.A.C.C.

​​I Love Jack and the Bean Stew!  The book not only creatively weaves allusions to various fairy tales into the story, it sends a powerful message -- be kind, in an open, down-to-earth, kid-friendly, yet very powerful way.  Fabulous illustrations, too!
Jason Folkman, Parent and High School Teacher

​Eating Lean and Green with Super Foods to Save the Planet is perfect!  It's exactly what I want to get through to my students!
