About Alexx Stuart
Alexx Stuart is an educator, activist and change agent who runs online courses and hosts a podcast for those wanting to reduce their toxic load in everyday life. She’s at the forefront of a movement that’s non-judgmental, gentle on the body and skin, and tough on the companies selling products masquerading as food or safe cleaning products. A columnist for Wellbeing magazine, she is also a sought-after speaker and consultant to businesses committing to change for good.
Dan Bourchier is a multi-award-winning multi-platform broadcaster with the ABC, accomplished company director on commercial, and in-demand public speaker and event MC and facilitator.
Dan anchors ABC Canberra’s flagship 7pm news, and as well as being a member of the University of Canberra Council, Dan has extensive experience in governance, leadership, strategy and strategic communications, and Indigenous affairs.
Dan grew up in the remote Northern Territory town of Tennant Creek, where he was mentored by elders from around the region while coming to understand his own Indigenous heritage from his mum’s side of the family in coastal and inland parts of Victoria.
He was driven to news and reporting from an early age, and began a traineeship at the Tennant and District Times as a teenager still at school. Dan has worked as a radio broadcaster, newspaper reporter, video journalist, foreign correspondent, political reporter, and social commentator.
As a broadcaster, Dan is driven by giving voice to the voiceless, holding to account those in positions of power, and telling really great stories – while his work as a company director is underpinned by cultural and ethical governance.
Low Tox Life: Food
A toolkitfor answering the question ‘what should I eat for my health and for the planet?’.
What are the best foods to put in your shopping basket for your health and for the planet? Is it necessary to cut out meat, almonds and go organic? Who can afford it anyway?
Bestselling author of Low Tox Life and ‘ultimate gentle activist’ Alexx Stuart clears a path through the rules so stridently laid down by proponents of particular diets. She turns the tables on a supermarket system that is geared strongly against our health and the environment, and points to the how rather than the what. Because questioning how your food is grown is the key to unlocking dependence on a broken food system and to finding easy and delicious answers to that daily conundrum: what’s for dinner?
Low Tox Life Food is packed with inspiration and stories from regenerative farmers, checklists for what to ask about the produce you buy, ways to afford better choices, as well as 80 of Alexx’s most requested recipes for budget-friendly, easily adaptable meals without waste.
If you want to feel more certain and more hopeful about the future of food and our planet, this book is for you.
