    Great book. So simple yet to full of information. I love a book that I feel happy to give to me teenage daughter. Big on self love, self esteem and health. It isn't about scales, carbs, fats, sugars, exercise and 'trends'. It is about finding what is true for you without deceiving yourself.

    Another this worked for me so you must do it book. (and as it so happens it didn't actually work out so well for the author who has sadly died)

I enjoyed the book and reading about Jess' journey, how she handled the decisions she made when it came to her life, her commitment and her experiences. There is information that I completely agree with and some scientific evidence exists pertaining to this information, and there is information I didn't agree with or the jury is still out on...it is worth a read.

I enjoyed the book and reading about Jess' journey, how she handled the decisions she made when it came to her life, her commitment and her experiences. There is information that I completely agree with and some scientific evidence exists pertaining to this information, and there is information I didn't agree with or the jury is still out on...it is worth a read. Although I found Jess' story intriguing, I also found parts of it incredibly conflicting. Jess is a warrior. She made a decision that gave her peace about her condition and followed it through with tenacious commitment. Following initial medical treatment Jess made a decision to pursue alternative natural treatment by resetting her system with an organic plant-based diet. It was what she wanted and it was nobody's decision to make but hers. I commend her for being so bold, brave and driven. I was incredibly saddened to learn after reading this book that Jess passed away from her cancer in 2015, in spite of her completely strict organic and wholesome lifestyle in pursuit of healing. I think it reminds us that although the human body has the amazing ability to heal itself when needed, we shouldn't dismiss science and medical intervention when it is most needed and advised, as it could very well be what saves a life. In saying this, I acknowledge that in Jess' case her only medically advised option left was to amputate her arm, and only then it would only serve to prolong her life a little more. There is no guarantee that any medical or alternative treatment will work for anyone. There is a lot of informative chapters in this book about clean eating and helping the human body to utilize all the wonders that nature offers us to repair and restore our health. Whilst I agree with the basics- eating mostly vegetables & fruit and limiting meat, dairy, sugar and processed foods full of chemicals that serve absolutely nothing good for our bodies- there are chapters of this book that I was skeptical about and even border-line against, like the step-by-step advice of some procedures such as the coffee enemas. Enemas have a potential to be very dangerous for bowels if not performed correctly. I think when it comes to Make Peace With Your Plate, each to their own.

    The most comprehensive book on transformation, nutrition and everything life enhancing I've ever read! Jess embarked on her journey to save her life and I've personally read a lot of her sources so I trust the authenticity of the information she shares.

Apart from the fact that it obviously 'cured' her of terminal cancer. A lot of her tips and tricks are easy to implement into a daily routine, at least as a preventative measure. I've already taken to rinsing my mouth in coconut oil (rather than listerine) and drinking edible clay as a natural detox regime daily and it adds less than 2 minutes to my usual schedule. It has renewed my commitment to juicing and drinking my daily green smoothie and I buy as much organic as possible. If you've been diagnosed with an illness - this is a must read. If you just want to prevent illness - this is a must read. The religiousness with which you apply the information will depend on your driver i.e. diagnosis vs prevention. Only two slight words of caution which should in no way take away from the value of the book's content: The importance of enzymes is, in my humble opinion, brushed over and not explored in the depth it deserves. Fortunately, raw, organic juices contains enough enzymes to not be a problem when it counts. The cost involved and career advise is suitable for an only child with infinite family support and no dependants. Single mom's, for example, will find that portion of the book annoying at best. Sorry Jess, when you have a [insert any number] of kids to support, not just financially but emotionally and every other kind of way, sitting around waiting for the universe to effortlessly supply a fabulous, well paying career opportunity is not a real option and when you have $-100 left after expenses (like rent, child care, school fees etc) organic IS NOT affordable. LOVED the book - easy to read even if you're not really that in to nutrition and self improvement. It WILL give you a number of AHA moments.

    Jess has written this book superbly - it is so easy to read. I consumed it on a one hour flight! Unlike many other "clean" eating books she also presents the information in a really engaging way which makes the idea of changing to this kind of eating less overwhelming. My only criticism would be that weight is mentioned quite a lot throughout the book. This is despite a specific comment from Jess early on that she doesn't see this way of eating as a diet plan and that what she wants "to express Jess has written this book superbly - it is so easy to read.

This is despite a specific comment from Jess early on that she doesn't see this way of eating as a diet plan and that what she wants "to express isn't really about being skinny". I support an approach which takes about loving our bodies because we are looking after them and so found the number of references to weight that occurred a little annoying. Overall though, a great read and Jess deserves to do well.

    I really loved this book. It is easy to tell that Jess comes from a place of love and has lots of great advice for getting as healthy as possible (mentally & physically). There were a couple of tips in here I most likely will not adopt i.e. coffee enemas or oil pulling but the other tips seemed very good and practical. I plan to start incorporating many of practices in here as part of my daily life i.e. green juices, dry body brushing and I thankfully already eat vegetarian. I plan to I really loved this book.

I plan to re-read this book several times to start utilising her philosophies. Recommended if you are wanting a cleaner body and mind. Jess always writes from a place of love and is great.

    Gobbled this one up in just over a day. Jess tells her story with honesty and humour, in a tone so relatable that I feel like I've known her forever! Part memoir, part cookbook, part nutrition guide and common sense, this book is a kind tap on the shoulder from a woman who has been there, lived that and survived. The advice and suggestions Jess gives are sound and her humour makes the "out there" suggestions less crazy and more approachable (coffee enema, anyone?). I've been recommending it to Gobbled this one up in just over a day. Jess tells her story with honesty and humour, in a tone so relatable that I feel like I've known her forever!

    This woman is living with cancer. She is apparently thriving with cancer. Definitely a motivation to clean up our diet, but I didn't get as much out of the book as I thought I would. One thing I really liked was how real she was & it seemed like you were chatting with a friend. Overall, I recommend for someone looking to make a change toward eating whole foods or who needs to learn a new relationship with food and themselves.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Wow! While and after reading this book I've bought organic butter, coconut water and am seriously considering oil pulling with coconut oil! Not yet sold on juices and smoothies. Definitely made me reconsider how and what I eat. Jess has such a strong spirit and it's a very uplifting book to read written in a no-nonsense slightly chummy manner.

    Jess shares so much valuable information in her book. I had tears in my eyes as I finished the last chapter on "Ending the War". She lived a beautiful life. We are all blessed that she left behind such inspiring words for future generations to wake up, get present and connect to the overflowing source of self-love available to us all.

    Easy to read, this has some good ideas and some controversial ideas about health. Jess is an amazing positive role model for young girls. The writing style was a bit too Dolly magazine for me however.

    This book was very informative and did provide some really good and helpful information though I found during the end of the book some of the ideas a bit wishy washy and to be honest hipstery. Saying all of that it has inspired to change some of my eating habits so it did it's intended job.

    Jess' story is inspirational and there's a lot of good, easy to digest information here. But those who regularly read up on whole foods and nutrition probably won't find anything new here.
