Recommended Reading

Nourishing Traditions

If you haven't noticed already, I highly recommend Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon, with Mary Enig. This book is available at my local library, it just might be available at yours.

This book opened my eyes to a lot of things. But I must say that the first time I checked it out, I was overwhelmed and didn't even read it. It is so thick. Then I learned that it is mostly recipes. The portion on nutrition is only the first little bit, maybe 60 pages. That was doable to me.  I have read that portion, now, over and over, each time gleaning new information.

The authors cover everything you need to know on the subject of fats, carbs, protein, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, and more.

This is a general resource that everyone should check out, whether you're just starting to eat healthy, or you grind your own wheat and make your own bread. :)


  1. As a new member of CHEER,I only just now looked at your discussion of Nourishing Traditions. Do you know about the support group for people who follow Sally Fallon's teachings. NT is our textbook.

  2. Yes, I was a very active member of that Yahoo group for a while. I learned a lot discussing things with those helpful folks, but I have had to change my membership to Internet only, for time management reasons. I could very easily spend all day on there. :)
