I am reading an excellent cookbook, Nourishing Traditions, The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats, by Sally Fallon. This book challenges the concept of low-fat cooking and opts for cooking with whole, organic foods. Fat is important in our diet, it claims. The book discusses in full length the topics of nutrition, fats, carbohydrates, proteins, dairy, vitamins, enzymes, salt, spices & additives, beverages, food selection…in the Introduction (it’s a big intro)! And is followed by the recipes and explanations of why these recipes or ingredients are good. The book is written so well, I am having a hard time putting it down, and it’s a cookbook!I found this treasure at the library, but am definitely putting it on my wish list.
