Sally Fallon: Nourishing TraditionsThe Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats

T her and begin pulling out stickers that she gets hung up in her hair this time of ear Our dog Mocha used to love to come to the farm with us and this last spring she saw her first new born baby goat Being a border collie she instinctively knew not to hurt it so she just put her nose up to the goat and I could see the wonderment in her face Mocha isn t with us any and sometime I just wish to go to the farm Lisa makes the best soft chervil goat cheese with chives and garlic And the other day she gave me a jar of her homemade fermented Anaheim peppers It would be good with eggs she said I took it home and made my special scrambled egg dish that consists of 2 eggs beaten with some milk then scrambled in olive oil Next I slice up some tomato avocado and then I add some of her cheese but I do not cook them Well this time I sliced up some of the fermented peppers and added them I was so in love with this meal with the added peppers that I had it again that day for lunchI called Lisa up Are Here With Me (Together you sellingour jars of fermented peppers No not unless I can find another crate of Anaheim peppers so I am make She had bought the crate she used from out of town Then can I have the recipe She started to give it to me but then she began talking about thiscook book how wonderful it was and how it even had neat tidbits in it She went on and on about it mainly because I asked her where she had found the recipe Then I said I will buy it and get the recipe from it because the book sounds great Then she told me that the recipe was on page 97 but that she had changed some things in it The biggest change was that it was not made with cucumbers but with Anaheim peppers She first scorches the peppers and then she peels them and takes out the seeds If ou can t find Anaheim I think that Poblano would work as they are almost as large but unlike other peppers they are both not hot Of course the amount used would than likely be different due to the size differenceFermented Anaheim PeppersFor one uart12 Anaheim peppers scorched seeded and peeled1 T mustard seeds1 T sea salt4 T whey not powder t peppercorns2 to 4 minced garlic cloves2 T Onion chopped but NOT finely2 T olive oil1 c filtered waterPlace whole peppers in a uart jar Mix other ingredients in a bowl and then add to jar The liuid should cover the peppers and be one inch below the top of the jar Screw on the lid and keep at room temperature for 3 days then refrigerate Note You may have to use another jar a pint one I say thins because ours overflowed So after mixing up the liuid etc I poured the mixed into both jars covering the peppersEnjoyUpdate We made some fermented peppers and sat the jar on the counter Well after three days nothing happened I called Lisa and she said to leave them on the counter for ten days because it takes longer to ferment in cooler weather So my husband put a heat lamp on them because nothing was happening The next day the water in the jars rose and there were a few bubbles So a few days later we took a jar over to Lisa s She took one out and ate it Said it was getting there but it wasn t tart enough Maybe two weeks but I could keep tasting it and see how I like them I was afraid of botulism but she said that the whey prevented that from happening So make sure our whey has live cultureLisa has now made fermented jalapenos with carrots cauliflower and cucumber Even green tomatoes would be good In the batch with the cauliflowers she added a tablespoon of turmeric Update Two days after Lisa told me that it needed another 14 days to ferment the peppers were tart enough Lisa hadn t taken into consideration our heat lamp I was excited I made my scrambled eggs and enjoyed them just as much as I had enjoyed her batch I came upon this book three Wicked Lies (Men of Summer, years ago at Barnes and Noble I read it sitting in the bookstore leaning against the bookshelves over the course of a few weeks while my kids were at preschool for an hour Fallon puts together a very interesting book though she isn t an anthropologist a researcher or a very good chef though some of her salads are deliciousShe denounces modern food preparation methods including the pressure cooker and the microwave in favor of old fashioned methods of preserving culturing sprouting etc She advocates time spent in the kitchen feeding a family wholesome unprocessed foods She also advocates the family garden and farm Her book made me really think about how little I knew about the processes our food goes through before it hits our grocery store shelves Fallon got me into making my ownogurt and experimenting with alternative grains I now own this book and though I don t like many of the recipes I like reading the uotes and getting ideas I also think her suggestions on soaking grains to make them digestible especially for children are dead on This book inspired me to become a nutrition consultant It s a must read The first part of the book discusses nutrition concepts and the second part presents a plethora of recipes Don t worry if ou are vegetarian while Fallon focuses much of her time on meats there is plenty of other information to be gleaned from this volume. Cinating guide to wise food choices and proper preparation techniues 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.

U re gonna die from malnutrition but this book is here to save ouOverall the book presents such an extreme viewpoint that it can be difficult to read at times While there are maybe good ideas presented in the book they are drowned out in the dogmatic preaching Ok this book is a little outdated so I wonder how the recent research on omega369 plays in to what s here Or certain alternative sweeteners Also really dogmatic everything for sale at the grocery store is crap ou really need to shop exclusively at health food stores or direct from farms and if ou follow the advice without living on a farm Churchills Trial you re gonna be broke pretty uick Even ifou re rich ou ll be time impoverished while sproutingfermentingculturing all this stuff You should use methods and techniues that tra I was first given this book by an herbalist friend of mine who endorsed its content and position ondiet but warned me about Sally Fallon s spit and vinegar approach to food choices and social change No doubt Nourishing Traditions absolutely lives up to its subtitle in Sally Fallon s direct no nonsense critiue of prevailing nutritional values and investigation of the vagaries of processed foods This book is both a bible of useful recipes and an argument for a considered holistic relationship to food and diet that are incredibly valuable I am a vegetarian and it s important to note that Fallon does not endorse vegetarianism nor is the text lim I am a reformed vegan I will say this again and again with no shame I was a longtime vegetarian who went vegan after being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia I thought I was eating cleaner and healthier I guess I did feel morally superior but physically I felt like crap and I never felt any relief from autimmune disease flare ups Then I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism I felt like my body was turning against me even though I thought I was healthy After finding out that soy was a big NO for anyone who is hypothyroid and here I was living off of a diet that was about 90% soy I mean Tofutti Cuties I felt stuck And then magically one day I met Weston A Price Only I didn t actually meet him because he s dead and everything but I met his foundation I m not going into all the specifics Go do that ourself But I tell Lakeside Redemption you all this because my life has seriously been changedimprovedhealed after I picked up Nourishing TraditionsI ve loosely been following the dietary guidelines for about a month and I have experienced ridiculously improved energy I mean insane And I have almost normal sleep now weight loss without much effort almost nonexistent sugar cravings before this sugar was my heroin I mean shakes and chills and visions of goblins until I had an hourly fix cleared complexion okay this is going to be harder to explain but I have this definition I never had before in my face and body Like contours I never knew I had And it s not the weight loss because even when I was terribly thin I didn t have uite the same definition I mean it s magicPlus I ve had about 99% less joint swelling Magic I tellou I will get off this soapbox nowSo as another review said this is textbook than cookbook so I have a feeling I will be reading this forever The general idea is grass fed organic meats full fat dairy and lots of it coconut oil organic produce and then only two parts I haven t ventured in to lacto fermented foods and organ meats The former because I tried to make fermented carrots and the smell was too vile to try them and the latter because I m still too seamish to venture inside the animal Also I haven t had raw dairy et because there is only one certified raw dairy farm in Texas and it is a few hours from where I live I MISS YOU CALIFORNIA I WILL COME BACK SOON There are 7500 characters remaing for this review I wish I could use them all 7481 Any book that contains the word dictocrats in the title should probably be read with a wary eye This is a rant in the form of a cookbook based on the work of the Weston Price Foundation I m sympathetic to many of the ideas here especially the idea of eating natural organic unprocessed foods but I think the authors use uestionable science to back up many of the out there ideas There s some serious cherry picking of references here If it convinces people to eat healthier to eat closer to nature that s a good thing but I was turned off by the didactic lectury tone and the wacky conspiracy theorist smellI did like the fermenting recipes I have some pickles up right now using the recipes in the early part of the book but little other that really called out to me that I had to try I m glad I read it because a bunch of friends have been pushing the WP foundation at me and now I know exactly what they re up to but I m not at all convinced by the arguments Fermented Peppers Oh MyMy friend Lisa raises goats and chickens just west of Tahleuah I always enjoy going to visit with her and her farm animals She has some Great Pyrenees dogs one that I have loved since she was a puppy Gigi Now that she is grown the only way I can tell her from the other dog is that she runs up to me first and begins pawing me I pe.

My stepmother gave me this book for my birthday Looking it over at first I thought Wow she thinks I m a spelt eating raw milk drinking conspiracy theorist lunatic This book begins with 80 pages of single space size 10 font INFORMATION about how the USDA the American Cancer Association and Second Time Loving your pediatritian are all part of a sinister alliance to giveou cancer heart disease cavities and arthritis and about the vast conspiracy of misinformation in the health and food world and detailed chemical analysis of the foods ou should and shouldn t eat than I ve ever read beforeDid I say looking it over at first Well at second look I read the whole 80 page introduction It basically says Eat butter eat sea salt eat meats preserved food and soaked foods are easier to digest and have enzymes Don t eat sugar or white flour or any fat besides butter and olive oil Traditional cultures have the right idea butter organ meats sausages pates miso natto saurkraut And on third glance once I got past all the dense reading and into the actual recipes wow this stuff is ummyAs weird as this book is I have had it for 3 days and I have made 5 recipes out of it already Dark Awakening yogurt cream cheese whey carrot kim chee dill pickles bean sprouts That s a way better track record than my favorite The Joy of Cooking As a child I lived in the city playing outside watching a lot of tv and chasing down the ice cream truck until my dad remarried when I was 8 and we moved to a small farm On that farm our family ate EXACTLY how she teaches in this book We milked our cow and goats and drank raw milk We raised and butchered our own cow pigs and chickens My step mom made us eat liver organs and lacto fermented foods like sauerkraut and pickled veggies She was German but now I am wondering if she lived by this book We have a son that was born with heart defects so I am constantly reading books that will teach me how to feed him to protect him against worsening his heart disease and this book takes us back to eating a diet before all the modern inventions ruined our food We are doing some things right like eating eggs from a neighbors chickens eating butter never margarine we only use coconut oil and cold pressed olive oil and never any oils that aren t expeller pressed we buy all organic fruits and veggies and plant a garden and we only eat beef and chicken from a local farm We also just found a source for raw milk since homogenizedpasteurized milk is one of the main sources for heart disease Before I found this book I already knew of Weston Price a dentist and his travels to remote tribes and villages where he studied their teeth and their diets It is amazing what he learned If any tribe was near civilization he always cautioned them not to EVER eat anything from the white man s stores We would be doing a lot better if we did the same I am a big supporter of co ops and farmers markets If we didn t travel so much we would probably have our own small farm I actually appreciate my childhood experience even though I didn t like my mean step mother Read this bookUpdate 2019 Due to the massive amount of research on the devastating effects of eating animals and oilsfats that have been extracted from the original plant source I no longer recommend this book We followed her recommendations and ate like this for 11ears and it didn t improve my kids teeth or our health one bit I followed everything as perfectly as possible even the recommended supplements My kids never drank soda or juice and have never eaten at McDonald s or other fast food restaurants and their teeth are still terrible I still think that if people raise their own animals and grow their own food they will dodge many diseases but my family is now eating 100% whole food plant based No animals dairy eggs oil added salt or refined sugars This was an easy transition for us because we already ate almost exclusively home cooked meals and no refined sugar We tossed the oils dairy and meat We have seen significant improvements in our health My husband lost 30 lbs I lost 20 lbs My kids stopped wetting the bed at night No one has toothaches any so I am expecting to see improvement there My son s acne cleared up I no longer have insulin resistance We all have energy when we run and exercise I no longer have joint pain None of us wakes up with stomach aches any My digestion has improved greatly Sorry but this book is going in the trash now For information on peer reviewed research on eating whole food plant based check out the non profit nutritionfactsorg As a cookbook its ok It has a few odd and interesting recipes but nothing really that jumps out as memorableAs for the rest Its starts out by trashing fad diets while trying
