Summary

This well-researched, thought-provoking audio guide to traditional foods contains a startling message: Animal fats and cholesterol are not villains but vital factors in the diet, necessary for normal growth, proper function of the brain and nervous system, protection from disease and optimum energy levels. Sally Fallon dispels the myths of the current low-fat fad in this practical, entertaining guide to a can-do diet that is both nutritious and delicious.

Nourishing Traditions will tell you:

  1. Why your body needs old fashioned animal fats
  2. Why butter is a health food
  3. How high-cholesterol diets promote good health
  4. How saturated fats protect the heart
  5. How rich sauces help you digest and assimilate your food
  6. Why grains and legumes need special preparation to provide optimum benefits
  7. About enzyme-enhanced food and beverages that can provide increased energy and vitality
  8. Why high-fiber, low fat diets can cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies

Topics include the health benefits of traditional fats and oils (including butter and coconut oil); dangers of vegetarianism; problems with modern soy foods; health benefits of sauces and gravies; proper preparation of whole grain products; pros and cons of milk consumption; easy-to-prepare enzyme enriched condiments and beverages; and appropriate diets for babies and children.

This audio edition comes with a supplementary PDF that includes selected recipes from the print edition. Nourishing Traditions is wonderfully narrated by Camille Mazant.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Good book to read and have as a reference

The book covers a lot of topics about dieting, research and traditional diets from around the world. It is good to read something which does not just repeat whatever is the fashionable trendy diet at the moment. There are some controversial topic regarding red meat and saturated fats, but the author has pretty convincing arguments if you read it with an open mind and don't follow some dogmatised diet e.g. veganism and are willing to hear different arguments. There is a lot to learn from this book even if you don't agree with everything.

Wish I had read this book 20 years ago!

The author is so way ahead of her time. In light of the fact that this book was produced 20 years ago, the information it relays is now being proven over and over today. Raw milk is now outlawed for sale... and we let this happen. Hopefully this can be changed as more folks discover the health benefits of fermentation.

Interesting & Informative

Packed with information.
I've listened to it a couple of times. Half of it is educational the other half is a cookbook. They don't read the recipies out loud but I believe there is a pdf. I got the hard copy. I love the recipies so far.
I'm glad I got it.

Flies in the face of Big Food

This book, if read and absorbed, will change your life. I like to listen with the physical book nearby, so I can run over and highlight parts of it that stand out to me. If you are a fan of governmental agencies, and believing what they tell you is good for you, this information will sound outrageous. Stick with it, and you will notice that it rings true to your intuition. No more needs to be said.

No full pdf

I was extremely dissatisfied that the included pdf is only a partial amount of the entire text! Should be expressed so buyers can understand what they’re purchasing. Wonderful book though.
