5.0 out of 5 stars The book that replaces many
This book is an absolute must for anybody who is confused by the plethora of diametrically opposed nutritional 'advice' that permeates our health-conscious society. Although it describes itself as a 'cookbook' there is actually a tremendous amount of material that points out how far removed we actually are from sound nutrition, in spite of what various 'Diet Dictocrats'...

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good things...but some glaring errors!!!!
The basic premise of this book, and its claims are good; it is interesting reading, and all good advice.
The recipes are a little simplistic for us, but some good ideas we will take.
However, the dreadful ignorance regarding infant nutrition is inexcusable.
No concocted formula comes even close to mothers milk - NOT CLOSE!!! Mothers' milk is a living food...

5.0 out of 5 stars A bible for good health!,
This review is from: Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook That Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats (Paperback)I can't recommend this book enough! It's not just recipes, though of course 100 s are included. There is so much research and clear, well written chapters about what our modern, supposedly healthy diet has done to us and the disease resulting from this, and it just makes so much sense. The references are all there, and there are loads,- and Sally Fallon explains very clearly why cod liver oil, lacto fermented food, butter, raw milk and cheese from pasture fed cows, organic free range eggs, fresh,pesticide free vegetables etc etc are nourishing and full of essential vitamins, minerals and enzymes mankind has eaten in some form or other for million+ years in every culture and which has kept them healthy. She explains how modern marketing and share holder profits drive the huge food manufacturing interests and not the Consumers' health and well being . She uses many examples from both scientific research and anecdotal to illustrate exactly what is causing so many modern, life crippling diseases like cancer, heart problems, Alzheimer's and how we can help ourselves and our families to avoid them, and to a healthier way of living. It took me several months to decide to buy this book, but I have now given it as presents to friends , and even my sceptical husband is convinced of its truths! One of the most interesting, fascination and educational 'cook books' I have ever bought, and I have over 100. I was very happy to discover Sally Fallon is part of a world organisation called Wise Traditions that has yearly events in London and hopefully is a vital part of the much needed revolution we need to bring "nourishment as live giving " to the forefront of our culture. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book,

5.0 out of 5 stars The best cookery book ever,
5.0 out of 5 stars Nourishing Traditions,
Was recomended this by my friend - fantatic good old fashioned common sense ! Not finished ready all the reciepes but yum yum
5.0 out of 5 stars massive resource for old fashoined healthy cooking,
I am already a true believer in plenty of cholesteral and saturated fat and minimising refined carbs for maximum health, so I have no difficulty accepting the dietery presupositions of this book.
It was actually someone trying to sell me the china study line that got me looking into the issues more seriously and I have gone more to this way of thinking.
I just wish we had regular access to raw milk in this country as this book and others tout it as major health resource.
Having read through the intro and thumbed through the rest of this book I can fully reccommend it as a great health resource, for those wishing to get back to basic, wholesome, home cooking. Try it you might like it.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional cooking at its best!,
5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone who is serious about their health.,
