Jo Robinson is a bestselling, investigative Jo Robinsonjournalist who has spent the past 15 years scouring research journals for information on how we can restore vital nutrients to our fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, and dairy products.

The nutritional losses did not begin 50 or 100 years ago, she has learned, but thousands of years earlier when we first abandoned our native diet of wild plants and game and began to domesticate animals and grow food in the first primitive gardens. Unwittingly, the choices we made about how to feed our livestock and what to plant in our gardens reduced the amount of vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants in the human diet, which compromised our ability to fight disease and enjoy optimum health.

Robinson is a nationally recognized expert in how to recapture those lost nutrients. Her insights into the benefits of raising animals on pasture have been featured in scores of magazines, newspapers, and radio shows, including Sunset Magazine, The New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, NPR’s All Things Considered, and Mother Earth News.


herb gardenHer new book, Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimum Health, published by Little, Brown and Company, was released on June 4, 2013. It extends her expertise to reclaiming the lost nutrients of fruits and vegetables. The book has received stellar reviews and will be featured in seven magazines in June and July—Bon Appetit, Prevention, Health, Fitness, Epicurious, Oprah’s “O”, Mother Earth News, and Redbook. Jo will also appear on several national television programs.

In addition to researching the health benefits of wild-like fruits and vegetables, Jo has been growing the most exceptional varieties in her garden on Vashon Island. She believes that growing the most nutritious fruits and vegetables in backyard gardens is the wave of the future.
