The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats
Technology is a generous benefactor. To those who have wisely used his gifts he has bestowed freedom from drudgery; freedom to travel; freedom from the discomforts of cold, heat and dirt; and freedom from ignorance, boredom and oppression. But father technology has not brought us freedom from disease. Chronic illness in industrialized nations has reached epic proportions because we have been dazzled by his stepchildren-fast foods, fractionated foods, convenience foods, packaged foods, fake foods, embalmed foods, ersatz foods-all the bright baubles that fill up the shelves at our grocery stores, convenience markets, vending machines and even health food stores.
The premise of this book is that modern food choices and preparation techniques constitute a radical change from the perspective of history, represent a fad that not only has severely compromised his health and vitality but may well destroy him; and that the culinary traditions of our ancestors, and the food choices adn preparation techniques of healthy nonindustrialized peoples, should serve as the model for contemporary eating habits, even and especially during this modern technological age.
Technology can be a kind father but only in partnership with is mothering, feminine partner-the nourishing traditions of our ancestors. These traditions require us to apply more wisdom to the way we produce and process our food and, yes, more time in the kitchen, but they give highly satisfying results-delicious meals, increased vitality, robust children adn freedom from the chains of acute and chronic illness. The wise and loving marriage of modern invention with the sustaining, nurturing food folkways of our ancestors is the partnership that will transform the Twenty-First Century into the Golden Age; divorce hastens the physical degeneration of the human race, cheats mankind of his limitless potential, destroys his will and condemns him to the role of undercitizen in a totalitarian world order.
This is me now...I would highly encourage all of you that are seeking better health and to overcome and or prevent illnesses, naturally (without the help of pharmaceuticals prescribed by a general doctor) to read this book. It's packed full of amazing truths of the way our culture has fallen into a deep, dark pit of illness and fatal diseases because of dietary choices. What our society has deemed to be safe and "healthy" is so far from the truth of what "healthy" actually is. There is a reason that the USA is one of the most obese and unhealthy nations today. Look at our choices of food and lifestyles, then at the healthcare system that simply wants to push pills for a profit rather than encourage an actual method of healing. As the women of our home and natural nurturers it is our job to make sure our household is living, eating, and simply existing in the healthiest state possible. This book will most certainly help to guide you in the right direction of accomplishing your healthiest state living.
