Nutrition is a part of health that isn’t always easy, especially when you’re feeling ill. Between our busy schedules and an abundance of convenient food options, it can be difficult to give our bodies what they truly need. Without thinking, we can easily slip into a habit of packing our body with preservatives and toxins.
Nourishment doesn’t have to be hard. With the right information and a little bit of practice, you can fill yourself with all the natural, healthy foods your body needs in order to feel good.
One book that has especially helped me with all my dietary needs is Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, PhD. If the name looks familiar, it’s because I mentioned this book in my previous post, Feeding Baby, which was essential to developing my nourishing formula.
Whenever I’m sick and need something hearty, this is the first book that I turn to. The chicken stock recipe is a favorite of mine, whether I’m using it to feel better or as a base for a soup.
With over 700 recipes – ranging from salad dressings to desserts – and proper preparation techniques, this book has everything you need to make wise food choices.
