The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats
Nourishment is an idea that has been around for some time now. People throughout history have placed a lot of emphasis on nourishment as a guide to healthy eating. Unfortunately nowadays we are not getting the best nourishment in our diets. Modern food processing methods tend to denature food, and this is what Sally Fallon tries to emphasize and explain in her book, Nourishing Traditions The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats.
Sally Fallon believes that traditional preservation methods generally increase the amount of nutrients in our food. This food includes fruits, meats, nuts, vegetables and milk products. However, it is not that our modern food processing methods are not useful. It is actually better to merge the wisdom of traditional food processing methods with the latest food manufacturing methods to get the best nutritional food possible.
Sally Fallon describes more than 700 delicious recipes in her book, Nourishing Traditions, which is pleasing for gourmets as well as those people who are too busy to pay much emphasis on cooking. On reading Nourishing Traditions, you learn to make the right food choices for the health and benefit of your family. Along with this, you also learn the right techniques to maintain the nourishment in the food you cook.
It could be said that Nourishing Traditions is a recipe book everyone should own. With a copy of the book, there is no need to buy any other recipe book as it is a wonderful collection of recipes which are collected from around the world. On reading the book, you will learn why you don’t see any changes for the better in your health although you are eating healthy. It is because the way you are preparing your food is incorrect, wherein you lose the nourishment of the food that you were supposed to receive.
Sally Fallon also proves that the food that is produced by independent producers – the people who provide the masses with meat, eggs, butter and poultry – are actually offered the lowest profit in the food industry. This is despite the fact that their produce is the most sought after produce in all food making establishments. In other words, Sally Fallon points out that it is the people who produce the junk food we are not supposed to eat, that gets the highest returns for their work! Sally Fallon enlightens us on the fact that we pay more for food that is not healthy, and pay the producers of healthy food much less!
So it can be seen that Nourishing Traditions is much more than a cookbook; it can be considered an encyclopedia of rich recipes that will help you provide you and your family with the necessary nourishment to lead a lifetime of great health. Nourishing Traditions is a 676 page book of information on good nourishment and cooking methods. There is no need to buy another recipe book once you get hold of this book, for it is beneficial to both the vegetarian and the non-vegetarian.
