Want a curriculum inspired by the same love of wholesome, traditional foods that you find in the cookbook Nourishing Traditions, the work of Weston A. Price, the Slow Food movement, and farmer's markets everywhere?
Annoyed with the sub-par Nutrition standards of the USDA and the typical Nutrition textbook?
Now you can breathe a sigh of relief. You've finally found what you're looking for.

I've been homeschooling my 5 kids for 18 years, and I've long wished for a way to present Nutrition to them that would support my own Nourishing Traditions inspired beliefs. I'm so excited to see this book! It's EXACTLY what I was hoping for.

My husband and I have raised pasture-based chickens and cattle for the last 6 years. We're very excited to see a Nutrition book that actually highlights the benefits of raising animals according to natural principles rather than industrial ones.
~ Susan H., Texas
Before this book, we had to create our own Nutrition hodge podge from stuff off the internet and Nourishing Traditions. That was okay, but this is far better and completely worth the price! Thank you!

I'm looking for a Nutrition curriculum to help teach my two oldest about exactly why raw milk and dairy can be so healing, why the food we get from our local farmers is more nutrient-dense and worth the premium, why returning to local and organic foods represents better stewardship of the land. Thanks for writing this book!

I've been helping to organize my local Farmer's Market for about 5 years. I know first hand the difference in quality and nutrition between eggs from hens raised indoors and those from hens who are out to pasture! It's great to see a Nutrition textbook that finally acknowledges this.

It's about time someone taught Nutrition in a way that acknowledged how we need to take care of the soil to grow nutrient-rich produce, about time they stood up against new-fangled industrially-made refined cooking oils in favor of the traditional cooking fats of our ancestors. Thank you!
Fats, Carbohydrates, Proteins, Vitamins, Minerals, Enzymes. You'll learn what they are and how your body uses them to build you.
It's perfect for your teenagers, or even yourself!
This is no stale read full of boring facts, but an intensely readable collection of essays blending my zeal for Real Food with my passion for Nutrition.
Why is grass-fed beef healthier than feed-lot finished beef? Why are the eggs from hens raised on pasture more nutritious than the eggs from hens raised indoors?
Just because a so-called "food" can be eaten, it doesn't mean that it's food. Real food will optimally nourish both body & soul.
Why is the life of the soil so important -- both for the environment and growing healthy produce? What's the difference between organic and industrial agriculture?
I'm a lover of real food. This is food that your great, great grandmother would have recognized as food. Translation? I drink raw milk from pastured cows. I eat wild-caught or pastured meats. I don't eat out of boxes, but cook with fresh ingredients. I know my farmers and buy directly from them. I'm not afraid of using fats like coconut oil, beef tallow, olive oil, ghee, or butter from grass-fed cows. I enjoy preserving food through natural fermentation and like to include these lacto-fermented foods regularly in my diet. I drink kombucha. I eat sushi. I think food ought to be sustainably produced, organic when possible, local, and prepared according to the wisdom of our ancestors. It's called "historical normalcy," and I embrace it.
