   Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook That Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats
If you are concerned about eating healthy, this book will take you beyond the food pyramid thinking. It will teach you why you need certain foods like fermented ones in your daily diet. Each chapter is loaded with information as well as recipes. You can read it as a book, use it as a cookbook, or both. I am planning to use it as a text book in my homeschooling for teaching my daughter Health. This is definitely one of my favorite cookbooks!

   The old ways are the best ways. Some of the recipies may be 'weird'
The book is outstanding. This book is for people who want to be healthy and eat healthy. Get rid of the propaganda that comes from the My Plate or Federal Government recommendations. Since the government has been involved in these guidelines, Americans have become more overweight. The old ways are the best. Whole milk, organ meat, and ferment foods are weird because we have been told that they are. They are not! These foods are delicious and will give you a buzz.

   Must-Have
This is more than a cookbook, it is an essential resource for anyone who knows that our modern, Western diet and food concepts are incorrect. If we are to expect our future generations to be strong, beautiful, and disease-free, we need to learn what we need to know about food, regaining, and maintaining our health, and having healthy children.

   An Awesome Book!
This book was shipped in a padded box that was completely protected, and it arrived earlier than I anticipated. I waited a couple of days before I got this book on my door. The book is great. I am learning a lot about how to make yogurt from scratch, how to preserve vegetables for later use, and so much more. The receipes are wonderful and each page has information about the food. This book was a great purchase and I am very grateful that I was able to get it for the money I spent. I love it!

   A MUST-HAVE FOR ANYONE WHO EATS
This book has taught me a lot about preparing food with vitamins. This is much more than a cookbook. It's a must-have for everyone.

   Fantastic Resource
Nourishing Traditions is a fantastic resource for learning about the optimal human diet! I've been on a long healing journey and have incorporated many principles from Nourishing Traditions. I feel a million times better today in my thirties than I ever did in my twenties or youth... My body is healing and thriving thanks to many of the teachings from this book!

   DO NOT Buy Kindle Edition
The introduction is the only thing in this book. The Cookbook section is not included. I don't know if I will buy the full paperback copy or return it. The information is dated so that you won't be able to see the evolution of research on this important topic. Although I haven't been able to read the whole thing, the parts that I have read include a good review of basic scientific information, but her review of existing research is full of psuedoscience and highly dogmatic bashing of medical and scientific professionals.

   Truth will set you free
I like the book. It shows the truth behind what ancient people ate in order to expose the lies of our modern food industry. What modern science would call bad food and how it makes us sick. I haven't finished the book yet but I love it. It should be read by more people.

   Missing basic information.
I wanted to learn how to soak nuts. The book wasn't very helpful because it was missing basic information. The amount of water is not specified in the recipes. It is not clear what the salt concentration should be. The recipes are useless. It's not clear what the source of the recommendation is. I didn't expect a cookbook for healthy eating to contain a lot of sugar in some of the recipes.
