Great course

Definitely recommend it!

"So please keep that in mind"

I'm tempted to delete this course every time she says "so please keep that in mind", but I'm forcing myself through it for some reason. I'd make a drinking game out of it, but this is a nutrition course...

Textbook please

I enjoyed day one of this course (intro) but after that it was tough to follow without the textbook that she refers to. Where can I get a copy?
