The Diet Dictocrats don't want you to know that...

Your body needs old-fashioned animal fats.
Newfangled polyunsaturated oils can be bad for you.
Modern whole grain products can cause health problems.
Traditional sauces promote digestion and assimilation.
Modern food processing denatures our foods but
Ancient preservation methods actually increase nutrients
in fruits, nuts, vegetables, meats and milk products!

At last, a successful challenge to Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats.


Recalling the culinary customs of our ancestors and looking ahead to a future of robust good health for young and old, Nourishing Traditions offers modern families a fascinating guide to wise food choices and proper preparation techniques. Nutrition researcher Sally Fallon unites the wisdom of the ancients with the latest independent and accurate scientific research. The revised and updated Second Edition contains over 700 delicious recipes that will please both exacting gourmets and busy parents.

"Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon is the only cookbook that I have owned, that I have used over and over again. Nourishing Traditions is no ordinary cook book. It has an excellent section on food science; and there are about 700 traditional recipes and roughly 1100 sidebars which provide excerpts from books and journals on nutrition. The information is so pertinent that I suggest you buy a copy of Nourishing Traditions for yourself and give one to a relative, another to a friend and one to your favourite health care professional."
