More than a collection of recipes, this book features a wealth of information about diet and health to help you appreciate the nutritional benefits of each delicious recipe the book provides. After a disappointing journey from low-fat/low-cal restrictions through vegan and all-raw diets, more and more health seekers are discovering the truths and rewards of eating properly prepared traditional foods: cultured dairy products, fermented vegetables and fruits, sprouted grains, nuts and seeds, stocks, sauces, condiments, and more.
Based on research by the Weston A. Price Foundation, you’ll find no open-a-can-and-zap-it ideas here but instead, recipes for unadulterated foods that can help reduce your risk of tooth decay, digestive disorders, infertility, auto-immune diseases, heart disease, and even cancer. From basic how-to information to delicious, gourmet meal plans, Nourishing Traditions will become the cornerstone of your cookbook library.
Author Sally Fallon is president of the Weston A. Price Foundation and editor of its quarterly magazine, Wise Traditions in Food, Farming and the Healing Arts.
