Co-authored by homeschool mother Debra Raybern, N.D., M.H., C.N.C., I.C.A.; homeschool mother and researcher Sera Johnson, B.MU; homeschool mother and writer/editor Laura Hopkins, B.S.; and mother, grandmother and former Home Economics teacher Karen Hopkins, B.S.
Nutrition 101: Choose Life! is a three-in-one family nutrition and health program for all ages that presents the major body systems, how they function, their common health issues, the benefits of good food and the consequences of bad food. Its 448 pages include into six units:
Biblically based and packed with hands-on activities, science and art projects and nearly 80 family-friendly recipes, this program teaches and reinforces the why’s of what we should eat, not just “because I said so.” Containing a complete reference guide filled with nutrition facts, charts, practical tips and an exhaustive index, Nutrition 101: Choose Life! will serve as a constant resource for improved health and abundant living.
If the book and USB drive have the same information, what is the value of having both? The book provides all of the information from the USB drive professionally printed and bound in full color. The USB drive allows you to reprint individual copies of the recipes, shopping lists, charts and any other relevant pages. Many families print single pages and create a folder for each child. Nutrition 101: Choose Life! is a tremendous resource and having it in both formats allows flexibility and saves you time and money.
“Nutrition 101: Choose Life! is a wonderful, well organized and much needed educational tool! There is simply nothing else out there like it!”
- Thomas M. Reed, DPM, FACFAS, Double board certified in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery and author of Core Essentials Complete: 90 Days to a Healthier You
“It has been such a joy to see Nutrition 101: Choose Life! come to life in our co-op. The kids have greatly enjoyed the fun and varied science experiments and the delicious cooking activities. They also have learned a great deal about their bodies and healthy eating habits. The most important thing my own child has learned is that healthy foods don’t have to taste bad, and that trying new foods can be fun!”
- Elise Eaton, Director, Extraordinary Education
“We have really enjoyed Nutrition 101: Choose Life! I love the fact that my daughter has learned to make better food choices at each meal and has become such a great label reader.”
- Maureen Brisack, homeschool mother of two
“Nutrition 101: Choose Life! does an amazing job explaining the anatomy and physiology of the body, nutritional health and how to make good food choices every day, but most of all it reflects God’s love for us. Passing this information on to our children will be a blessing.”
- Lisa Cook, mother, RN and Executive Director of Columbia County Independent Living

First, I must preface with the fact that I own the previous version (white book) and I love it. Great content and a real treasure and wealth of knowledge. That being said, I am so disappointed in this new updated edition. I am using this to teach a class and the editing (if it was even edited) is awful. The very first sentence in the book is missing words, there are various mistakes and words left out in just the first chapter! People already judge ND's as lesser than MD's and I'm trying to teach this natural lifestyle (to very observant teens) from a book that doesn't even use proper grammar. It is discrediting. Personally, I prefer the previous version and I am appalled to have payed $80 for this "book"!

The previous edition was amazing and easy to go through and teach from. I love this version and the combo best of all. Thankful for tools like this to help me proactively keep my family healthy!

I came across this book at the perfect time. I was praying about dieting, but I realized the more important thing is incorporating healthy lifestyle for our family. I am a homeschool mom of four and I am excited to incorporate this into our school and life.
Awesome information and very easy to follow .

I think it will be a great source to use for my 3 students; my daughter 10th grade; grandsons, 8th and 6th grades. I have only looked through the book CD, but I believe we will all learn about our bodies (health/science/growth/needs). Cooking is a lost art, we all need to learn how to cook well, healthy and safely.

I am loving the wealth of information, BUT extremely disappointed in the amount of typos. They are distracting, and interfere with the flow. I'm looking at page 339, right now, and have found 3. I would think, with the amount of money I spent, someone should be paid to find mistakes before print.
