Over the years, I have come to realize that the food offered to Americans is hurting us. All the commercially processed foods and artificial sweeteners, high temp processed oils is what is causing all the health and weight related problems in this country. This book just confirms all I have been learning due to my own (past) physical ailments. Because of a change of diet - to wholesome, organic and raw milk, eggs, vegetable and meat products, I am happy to say that I have been restored to complete health! I recommend reading Nourishing Traditions and using the wonderful recipes included.
