Came for the history, left from the clickbait writing.
What could have been an interesting history was framed like a clickbait blog entry. "YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT YOU'RE FEEDING YOUR CHILDREN!"
The attempt by the author (not helped by a performance that drips with sarcasm and holier-than-thou attitude) to scare the reader gets in the way of the facts and history. I had to stop when I reached the chapter on bread - the author attempts to draw a link between Celiac Disease and shelf stable bread without any evidence save a timeline. Similar to the false "vaccines cause autism" argument, the diagnostic criteria got better at the same time as an unrelated development, equalling correlation, not causation.

Interesting subject, not-so-great writer
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
If you like long lists of names, you'll love this book.
Has Combat-Ready Kitchen turned you off from other books in this genre?
No. I am super duper interested in military technology.
What three words best describe C.S.E Cooney’s voice?
Clear, nice, loud-enough.
What character would you cut from Combat-Ready Kitchen?
Any additional comments?
The author is bogged down in reciting which school everyone went to before they made a discovery. It would be clearer with edits, less confusing technical metaphors, and a sharper focus. I love the subject matter but did not love her framing the story with how romantic it was when she used to make sandwiches for her husband.
