Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig, PhD!
The wealth of information in Nourishing Traditions far exceeds the typical, everyday cookbook. I recommend that you approach it like a good novel. Forget about thumbing through its pages and looking for recipes that sound good to you. This is no ordinary cookbook!
It is far better to simply curl up in your favorite chair and just begin reading it from start to finish. Page after page, you will be drawn in with its straightforward facts, rich history, a passion for radiant health-and that of our earth-and comprehensive views on subjects that you will frankly be amazed to find existing in the food kingdom.
New concepts in the book, for most of us, are an introduction to lacto-fermented grains, vegetables, and beverages; a head-twisting re-education about healthy fats and cholesterol; and information about raw dairy products. There is an abundance of empowering nutritional nuggets. Having loved to study and cook for most of my life, it was quite a surprise to read and a joy to add these missing components to my diet, which are probably also missing in most everyone's diet. Since I started using lacto-fermented foods and many other recipes in this book, I have indeed noticed a dramatic improvement to my former lifeless diet. This is truly a must have cookbook!
