Now I understand
* why on a low fat diet I became depressed
* Why on a low fat diet I never feel full
* Why on a low fat diet I can never keep off the wieght I loose.
This book is about why good fat is vital to our health and well being, how eating right can give you flashing eyes and dewy skin, about how eating right can stave off disease and illness and give you boundless energy. And this book tells you all about which are the good fats and which are the anti nutrients. Think about your body as something that needs the right balance of nutrients to function efficiently - like putting the wrong fuel in your car, your body will eventuallyfail - diabetes, obesity and rotten teeth. Im so gald I found this book, it has saved my life.
This is an excellent book with HEAPS of important information! LOTS of recipies to choose from to make healthy eating interesting and YUMMY! Shows how to make cultured and fermented foods - you will be surprised and delighted! Truly a nutritional bible... And thick! This will take weeks to read :)
Information on: Politically correct nutrition, Fats, Carbs, Proteins, Milk products,Vitamins, Minerals, Enzymes, Salt spices and additives, Beverages, allergies and special diets, ....
Tells of an experiment where 18 rats were divided into three groups; thecontrol group received rat chow and water, the second group received cornflakes and water, and the third group received the empty cornflake box and water... Guess which group died first? Thats right! There is more nutrition in the box than there is in the contents!
Also heaps of quotes from Weston Price, Nutrition and Physical degeneration, and other relevant books.
Highly recommended to everyone!
"Nourishing Traditions... is a work of genius... richly encyclopedic.... run, don't walk to the nearest phone and order Nourishing Traditions."
Good information that is beginning to come out slowly but surely and is smashing the myths and dogma that surround what constitutes a good diet. Thinking about the fact that the majority of the brain is made out of fat helps me to understand why diets that burn too much fat could be dangerous for people. Things like this are very important facts to know.
This book is essential to any health conscious cook. It taught me to cook and got me really excited about the improvements I could make in my diet. Thank you Sally Fallon and Mary Enig. I actually wore my first copy out. Now on my second copy, there is such an array of do-able recipes that I'm still stumbling across new ones to try. The best thing is that my foodie/wine connoisseur husband really loves my cooking inspired by this book. Our stamina and health are enviable by all our friends. We both attribute this to putting into practice the principles Sally and Mary describe. From this book I have been introduced to 'The Weston A Price Foundation' www.westonaprice.org a fabulous resource for more info as well as an introduction to a whole community inspired by the message in Nourishing Traditions.
incredible that it can take so much going wrong with food production systems before people start to realsie there is a better way!!!!
this book smashes the myths about what food is- how it works in our bodies and how to eat it. Brilliant reference work.
This book was my wake up call to start NOURISHING my family, not just feeding them. The message is so important to you and your family's health. It will change the way you look at shopping and cooking for the better, its not hard to do either. Teaches in a very easy to read format about how animal fats are needed by humans.
Really easy to pick up the book and read little bits at a time when you are busy with children.
