Publisher's Summary

Sally Fallon Morell, best-selling author of Nourishing Traditions, debunks diet myths to explore what our ancestors from around the globe really ate - and what we can learn from them to be healthy, fit, and better nourished, today.

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 best-selling author Sally Fallon Morell explores the diets of our primitive ancestors from around the world - from Australian Aborigines and pre-industrialized Europeans to the inhabitants of "Blue Zones" where a high percentage of the populations live to 100 years or more. In looking to the recipes and foods of the past, Fallon Morell points listeners to what they should actually be eating - the key principles of traditional diets from across cultures - and offers recipes to help translate these ideas to the modern home cook.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

An eye opener, and no mistake!

The author critiques current diet fads and mass-market assumptions with a well researched document of eating habits in ancient and modern cultures. Special attention is paid to places that seem to support modern hypotheses about low-fat and plant-based foods. The author essays a (successful, imho) proof of a contrary view: traditional, healthy diets require fat and animal-based foods.

The Gift of Real Food

This book is a treasure. Sally Fallon leaves no BS stone unturned to find underneath it the nutritional gold that hides out of sight. People in our politically correct, don’t rock the boat culture fear what they don’t know and shrink away from what they don’t understand before they learn about it. In this volume, all the organ meats, fermented foods, animal fats and smelly traditional dishes that scare most of us Americans away take center stage and put real evidence about real healthy human eating patterns right up under our noses. It’s important to take any nutritional advice with a grain of salt, consider the source, and make informed decisions for your health and that of your children and loved ones; this book provides a tremendous piece of that puzzle in a deep and rich way. I loved it!
