The new year has begun, and I thought it would be appropriate to share some hints I found about healthful eating, one of the more popular resolutions, come Jan. 1.
It is a resolution one typically makes this time of year, but finds difficult to keep. I was talking with a chef friend of mine Cristina Chang-Bryant, who will be opening Sweet Pea: Real Foods To Go on Feb. 13 in Cheshire, about healthful eating and cookbooks that help make that kind of eating a way of life. She couldn’t have spoken more highly of “Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and Diet Dictocrats” by Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, Ph.D.; $27, New Trends Publishing, 877-707-1776.
With more than a half-million copies sold, I had to check it out. The statements on the back cover of the book support an idea I learned a few years ago: “Recalling the culinary customs of our ancestors and looking ahead to a future of robust good health for young and old, ‘Nourishing Traditions’ offers modern families a fascinating guide to wise food choices and proper preparation techniques.” To see the rest of this column and recipes, please click here.
