At Alternative Food Network we believe food can be medicine, a tool in the integrative tool box to heal and balance. Alternative Food Network is a niche multi-media resource at the intersection of food and personal best health. We produce cooking videos and informative podcasts with experts in the fields of medicine, science and nutrition to help health-minded adults get informed about what to eat to prevent, manage and even reverse disease. Our mission is to foster a 'can-do' approach to eating for a healthy and energetic life.
