“Fantastic book. I enjoy the recipes and find myself talking about this book to my friends all the time. Easy to read and understand.”

Amazon review

“Simple strategies to invest in your health by eating better. I’m not comfortable in the kitchen and love the simple to follow recipes.”

Amazon review

“This book provides a great balance between the technical background information, easy to navigate “how to” checklists and suggested recipes to start out with. Additionally, I was amazed by Maggie Moon’s immediate response to a follow up question I had that I posted to her website. You can tell she cares about the topic and is interested in making people successful in following the MIND diet. This is a very easy program to follow and you are encouraged to keep following it even if you miss a few foods as every bit helps. With grandparents who suffered from dementia, this is a very important recommendation to reduce my risk of getting dementia as well. Thank you, Maggie!”

“The MIND Diet is a well-written, thorough book that I find has many useful foods to help foster brain function. If you’re looking for a book to help give you some insight on how to prevent cognitive decline, this is a good book to start with. The internet can only tell you so much about the relationship between food and one’s mind. I find this book to provide good authority on the subject and provide actionable options for fostering one’s brain function to stave off dementia and the like. We can’t stop getting older, but what we can try stop is losing one’s mind.”

 Amazon review

“As my parents get older, I become more and more aware of their health- including their mental health! The possibility of dementia is always with us as we age, and this book helps us eat food that will hopefully lessen the possibility. These recipes are designed to improve memory and mental acuity. The author is registered nutritionist and knows what she is talking about. The “brain food” in this book is not only healthy, but also delicious! These recipes are detailed and easy to follow. There are even relatively healthy desserts! I am a big fan of this cookbook and have been enjoying it very much. My parents have been loving it too. Highly recommended!

The Elimination Diet Workbook: A Personal Approach to Determining Your Food Allergies

(Ulysses Press, 06/2014)


Mysterious allergies and digestion problems plague millions of people, but doctors can do little to help since many allergies are undetectable and overlapping symptoms often make it difficult to come up with a diagnosis. The Elimination Diet Workbook offers the only trusted, natural method for getting to the root of your own ailments and eliminating them for good.

While an elimination diet is unquestionably the most effective method for identifying food allergies and sensitivities, those who want to try it are often plagued by a barrage of conflicting reports on the proper way. This comprehensive handbook cuts through all the misinformation to give you the facts you need and a diet plan you can trust.

A thoroughly detailed guide to the diet itself, The Elimination Diet Workbook is also a primer on common allergies, inflammation, and digestive disorders and the foods that trigger each condition. Once you have started the diet, you can log your experiences in the journal section, creating an invaluable record of reactions and their triggers that you can bring to a physician for a more thorough and accurate diagnosis.

“Since finishing this book, I’ve learned a TON and discovered I have either an intolerance or allergy to three of the top eight food allergens. I have changed the way I eat completely and any symptoms I’ve ever had have disappeared… as well as some of my health issues! I can feel my body operating a lot more efficiently, I’ve lost weight, and overall, I feel like an entirely new person. I have never felt this good in my life. Thank you so much to Maggie Moon for helping me finally find answers and get my life back.” Read the full review on GoodReads here.

“I really like the guidance provided in this workbook. There are a lot of elimination diets out there, but this book seemed to me to have the ease of use that I needed.” Read the full review on Amazon here.

“The particular plan that my doctor recommended is essentially a variant of Moon’s “catchall diet,” so her suggestions and worksheets are spot-on and quite helpful. For me, the strength of the book is in its nutritional advice, especially the “alternative nutritional sources” and “substitutions” tables, the “label smarts” and ingredient lists, and pretty much everything else in Part Four.” Read the full review on Amazon here.
