Description

The Paleo craze has taken over the world. It asks curious dieters to look back to their ancestors' eating habits to discover a "new" way to eat that shuns grains, most dairy, and processed foods. But, while diet books with Paleo in the title sell well--are they correct? Were paleolithic and ancestral diets really grain-free, low-carb, and based on all lean meat?

In NOURISHING DIETS bestselling author Sally Fallon Morell explores the diets of our primitive ancestors from around the world--from Australian Aborigines to pre-industrialized Europeans. In looking to the past, Fallon Morell debunks common Paleo diet myths and points readers to what they should actually be eating--the key principles of traditional diets from across cultures: nutrient dense animal fats, carefully prepared grains and legumes, organ meats, carbohydrates like yams and cassava, bone broth, salt, and lacto-fermented foods rich in enzymes and beneficial bacteria.

NOURISHING DIETS begins with a discussion of the basic principles found in ancestral diets and then takes the reader on a fascinating world tour to explore primitive food practices and beliefs. Each chapter will include recipes that make ancestral principles available to food lovers in modern kitchens.
