"There are so many people out there speaking about 'Wellness, ' but few do it as practically as Sid Garza-Hillman. After all, I can tell you the science behind a healthy diet, but I cannot tell you how to make living healthy normal while working and caring for a family. Sid is extremely knowledgeable, very entertaining, and most important, skillful at guiding you to a healthy lifestyle. This is a must-read for busy families looking for a better way." --Garth Davis, MD, author of Proteinaholic

"Parenting will never be easy. But it can be a heck of a lot more rewarding, enjoyable, and effective with the right mind-set and communication strategies. Raising Healthy Parents is a sane, funny, and eminently practical guide to the journey of a lifetime. If your parenting could use an infusion of joy, clarity, and compassion, Sid is your guide, and Raising Healthy Parents is your user's manual." --Howard Jacobson, PhD, host of The Plant Yourself Podcast, contributing author to Proteinaholic and Whole

"Small Steps for the win! For achieving a healthier, happier family, you've found the best approach for creating lasting change and the best person you could have chosen to be your guide on this journey." --Matt Frazier, author of No Meat Athlete and The No Meat Athlete Cookbook

"A fun, easy-to-read, practical parenting book that cuts the crap and gimmicks to focus on the real goal: happiness. Sid Garza-Hillman's approach centers around becoming a happy and well-balanced parent, and, in turn, raising healthy, thriving, and yes, happy children. A must-read for new parents like myself." --Doug Hay, founder of Rock Creek Runner and cohost of No Meat Athlete Radio
BR>"As parents, we are inundated with information about how to raise our children but receive little, if any, guidance on how to raise ourselves. Healthy, active, well-adjusted parents are more resilient and better suited to the task of child-rearing and LIFE. Sid Garza-Hillman walks us through the process of achieving this end in a practical, realistic, no BS way." --Aaron Stuber & Jackson Long of Thought for Food Lifestyle

"'Parenting is an imperfect art.' It's not about following the latest model for modifying children's behaviors; it's about the parents. In his charismatic tone, Sid sets an example for parents to first understand more about themselves in order to build a healthy family. Whether your children are just a glimmer in your eye or getting ready to flee the nest, this is a must-read that will create a positive transformation for you, your home, and your family." --Adam & Shoshanna Chaim, cohosts of The Plant Trainers Podcast
