    Want to be challenged?

    This book has turned my world upside down. The jury is still out on if I'm going to fully adapt and accept all that was presented in this book, but it definitely has me thinking. I fully embrace the 'old school' way of preparing foods and do my best at staying away from refined and processed foods. However, this book tells you that what you thought was good and healthy isn't. What to do?

    Impressive, comprehensive, shocking and depressing

    There's not much left in this world unspoiled, including the food you eat. This book is expertly written and well researched like a PhD thesis. By the time you finish reading the introductory chapters, you will question everything you thought you knew about what foods really are healthy for you.

    not a normal cookbook

    This book is not for beginners. It`s full of information about all the things people in Amerika think are bad for you. Like using butter and drinking full fat milk. A lot of facts why you shoud avoid fortified and fat reduced food.
    The recepies are very interesting to try.
    I didn`t like that a lot of statments are repetative. It get`s old after a while.
    But for me it`s a great book, even when it transformed my family into guiney pigs -somebody has to try the food!

    This book gives great general info on all food groups, how to prepare properly and enjoy. I would consider this a great cookbook. Recipes are simple but purposely take a long time to prepare.

    Horrid recipes

    I went to the trouble of making three recipes today. Absolutley horrid.
    Simple Chicken Breats and decided on the variation version Mexican Chicken Breats with lime, oregana and chili flakes. Merinated for 6 hours and they were so bland I am contemplating what to do with them. What a waste of money and time. The chicken is so undersalted it's a crime. I understand this is a so called politically correct cook book but this is bad.... Also did the Mexican Rice oh so needs some sort of flavor added. I cooked the rice for 2 hours as stated and still very chewy and tough, absolutley no flavor. Just plain nasty. Also made the Chismole I added jalepenos after tasting and still so bland I will fix later. Although there are some good tips in the book you can get those off of the internet for free, don't waste your time with this book the recipes are absolutley nasty, bland and a waste of time. I give this a ZERO star but Barnes and Nobel rating system won't let me change this. YUCK, YUCK, YUCK.
