A cookbook from the author of the popular website Nourished Kitchen, featuring over 160 recipes based on the "traditional foods" philosophy of eating, which emphasizes whole grains, dairy, red meat, organ meats, and fermented foods. The traditional foods movement is a fad-free approach to cooking and eating that emphasizes nutrient-dense, "real"food, and values quality, environment, and community over the convenience of processed, additive-laden products that are the norm on grocery store shelves. Based on the research of Weston A. Price, who studied the diets of indigenous peoples to understand the relationship between nutrition and health, a traditional foods diet avoids processed ingredients, but allows meat, animal fat, and grains. It embraces cultured dairy, suchas kefir and yogurt, that contain beneficial bacteria; fermented foods, such as sauerkraut and kombucha, that are rich in probiotics; and organ meats that are packed with vitamins and minerals. It also celebrates locally grown foods. By choosing ingredients from nearby sources, you create a stronger connection to your food, and have a better understanding what you re eating and how it was produced. In"The Nourished Kitchen," Jennifer McGruther guides you through her traditional foods kitchen and offers more than 160 recipes inspired by the seasons, land, and waters around her. In the morning, fuel up withEggs Poached in Fiery Tomato Sauce. On a hot summer day, Cucumber Salad with Dill and Kefiris a cooling side dish, and on a chilly fall evening, Barley in Broth with Bacon and Kaleoffers comfort and warmth.Old-Fashioned Meat Loaf with Gravymakes a hearty family meal, whileChicken in Riesling with Peascan be the centerpiece of an elegant supper.
