Gigi Berardi’s FoodWISE in Western Today

Cascadian Weekly:

Bellingham Alive:

FoodWISE is currently available wherever books are sold. You can order FoodWISE from independent booksellers here or place an order at your local bookstore. And you can order from AmazonBarnes & Noble, or, again, wherever books are sold. Please consider leaving an honest review of my book on AmazonGoodreads, or wherever you review books. This really helps get the word out. My publisher also created these fun picture quotes that you are welcome to share on social media. Please feel free to share them and tag me on Facebook at @Gigimberardi.

Here are a few links to national media that my book has received, including my interview with and exciting review from Foreword Reviews, and my interview with Alex Wise from Sea Change Radio. Below are a few lovely endorsements that the book has received:

“If you can’t figure out what to eat after reading FoodWISE, you might as well just stop eating.”—Steve Ettlinger, author of Twinkie, Deconstructed

“If you ever find yourself in solitary confinement or the equivalent with one book to read, make sure it’s FoodWISE. Rarely is so much wisdom, common sense and original thinking elegantly pressed between two covers in a world hungry for food and even hungrier for the full story about the staples of life.”—Charles Geisler, Cornell University

“.…restorative as it is informative, and I love Gigi Berardi’s mantra: stop, think, then act.”—Michael Moss, investigative journalist and Pulitzer Prize recipient, author of Salt, Sugar, Fat

And some very generous press: See Whatcom Talks, Bellingham Alive! (January issue), the recent KGMI interview, and Grow Northwest (February Issue), as well as the spring issue of Oxygen Magazine (spring 2020).
