great tasting recipes, scientifically sound! contrary to most nutritional info out there.
Our ancestors were much healthier and stronger than we are, they also lived longer.
That changed with the
agricultural revolution a bit and the hard blow came with the industrial revolution. Now we have heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis etc.
Using the recipes and info in this book will get you your desperately needed nutrients again.
