Mom, will this chicken give me man boobs?

..asks a 10-year-old boy his mom, worrying that the hormones in chicken and other poultry might give him moobs.

Being a mom with a toddler and being very concerned about our planet and the food we eat, I could relate to a lot of areas in his mother’sjourney. Raising a green family in this world and time is not an easy task. However, she’s adding a sense of humor to her stories and it did make me giggle here and there.

I did not expect tips on how to be a green family or some stats and reports and Robyn Harding lived to my expectations (or lack of any) by giving a light, funny, and real (as the struggle I am currently living,) story of her attempts. She did succeed in many of them but eventually gave up to at least one bad habit; traveling.

Did I learn anything from her guilt-ridden struggle? you bet I did! I even bought “Arctic Tale” from iTunes,  YouTube’d Julia Roberts composting with Oprah, and researched options to offset flights emission.

If you are in this mindset and have sense of humor, ready for some wins and disappointments (I thought she shouldn’t have cared to fit in, should have only cared for the cause;) then this book if for you. If you’re uptight and care too little or way too much about the environment then you will not enjoy this book.
