A real, no-holds-barred take on making smart, healthy choices for you and your family.

In Green Enough, Mamavation blogger Leah Segedie uncovers the truth behind the food and household products that are misleadingly labeled "all-natural" and healthy but are actually filled with chemicals and toxins. From furniture to packaged food, Leah guides you through detoxifying your home, diet, and lifestyle, showing you how to make the best choices possible.

She exposes the brands and products that contain toxic and hormone-disrupting ingredients and gives guidelines on choosing safer products and organic produce that are free from toxic and persistent pesticides. She instructs you on making the move to meat, dairy, and eggs that are free of antibiotics, GMOs, growth hormones, and dangerous pathogens. She explains at what phases of childhood children are the most vulnerable and need more protection. And she includes delicious and kid-approved recipes to help you detoxify your cooking routine. It’s not about being perfect or 100% clean—none of us are—it’s about being green enough.

“Leah Segedie is a force to be reckoned with. I've know Leah for years and even though she began her journey fighting for cleaner food and household products well before I began to understand the importance of it all, I always marveled at her energy, dedication, drive, and fierce never-say-die attitude. Leah is so sincerely passionate about uncovering mistruths and problems that most of us have no idea about. I credit her with being one of the forces of massive change in the non-GMO movement that has made a significant impact on the CPG industry at large. I have mad respect and gratitude for this woman who fights for our protection every day. We all owe her a debt of gratitude that cannot be measured. Keep fighting, Leah. You've so got this.”
