I am a reformed vegan. I will say this again and again with no shame. I was a longtime vegetarian who went vegan after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. I thought I was eating "cleaner" and "healthier". I guess I did feel morally superior but physically I felt like crap...

My stepmother gave me this book for my birthday. Looking it over at first I thought-- "Wow, she thinks I'm a spelt-eating, raw-milk drinking, conspiracy theorist lunatic." This book begins with 80 pages of single space size 10 font INFORMATION-- about how the USDA, the American Cancer Association...

As a child I lived in the city, playing outside, watching a lot of tv and chasing down the ice cream truck until my dad remarried when I was 8 and we moved to a small farm. On that farm, our family ate EXACTLY how she teaches in this book. We milked our cow and goats and drank raw milk. We raised...

Any book that contains the word "dictocrats" in the title should probably be read with a wary eye. This is a rant in the form of a cookbook, based on the work of the Weston Price Foundation. I'm sympathetic to many of the ideas here (especially the idea of eating natural, organic, unprocessed foo...

As a cookbook, its ok. It has a few odd and interesting recipes, but nothing really that jumps out as memorable. As for the rest. Its starts out by trashing fad diets while trying strongly to encourage you to believe it isn't a fad diet itself. Then rumbles on into telling you that packaged, prepa...

I came upon this book three years ago at Barnes and Noble. I read it, sitting in the bookstore, leaning against the bookshelves over the course of a few weeks, while my kids were at preschool for an hour. Fallon puts together a very interesting book though she isn't an anthropologist, a researche...

This book inspired me to become a nutrition consultant. It's a must-read. The first part of the book discusses nutrition concepts, and the second part presents a plethora of recipes. Don't worry if you are vegetarian; while Fallon focuses much of her time on meats, there is plenty of other inform...

I was first given this book by an herbalist friend of mine who endorsed its content and position ondiet, but warned me about Sally Fallon's "spit-and-vinegar" approach to food choices and social change. No doubt--Nourishing Traditions absolutely lives up to its subtitle in Sally Fallon's direct,...

Ok, this book is a little outdated, so I wonder how the more recent research on omega3/6/9 plays in to what's here. Or certain alternative sweeteners. Also really dogmatic ("everything for sale at the grocery store is crap; you really need to shop exclusively at health food stores or direct from...

Wow! This book is seriously challenging my notion of good food and a healthy diet. Just getting into it, but I think many of her ideas are right on: lacto-fermentaion, sprouted grains, cultured dairy products, meat - especially organs, and real butter! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when,...
