Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
06/16/2014
In their first cookbook, Segersten (who runs www.nourishingmeals.com) and nutritionist Malterre tackle the issue of healthy eating. For the authors, this is no fad—their diet is a way of life. They start the book with a section on what it means to live with “whole life nutrition” and another about why one should partake in it, showing home cooks how they can easily incorporate healthier approaches to cooking. The hundreds of recipes provide an easy to answer the question, “If you remove so many things (like gluten, eggs, dairy, etc.) from your diet, what can you eat?” If you want those things, though, there are recipes for them as well. From simpler recipes like garlic kale kraut and tofu scramble to the a fish tacos with tomato-peach salsa, there are plenty of recipes in this cookbook that pack a powerful punch. (June)

    Tasty recipes

    This cookbook has everything I need. I just started fermenting foods and this book has easy to follow recipes. I've tried some of the salads and desserts and everything was very tasty. Great if you want to cook gluten and dairy free.

    The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook is a VERY well researched, informative work.



    The title says it's a cookbook but it's much more than just a cookbook. The first chapter opens with the following Voltaire quote that I believe sets the tone for the book: "Everyone should be his own physician. We ought to assist and not force nature. Eat with moderation what agrees with your constitution. Nothing is good for the body but what we can digest. What medicine can produce digestion? Exercise. What will recruit strength? Sleep. What will alleviate incurable ills? Patience." If you believe in the what goes in, must come out philosophy, you will find something in this book to assist you in bettering your health! From the novice to the pro in the kitchen and garden, there's something for you here! 




    If you've watched Doctor Oz, you've probably heard of the "blue zones" which are areas around the planet where people live the longest and with the greatest health. The recipes in this book are derived from the dietary patterns found in the "blue zones." There is an excellent selection of gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and egg-free dishes - something for everyone!




    Besides the over 300 recipes, there's so much other valuable-to-your-health information that it boggles the mind. You will find the six steps to nourish your digestion system. Whole Food sensitivity is thoroughly delved into. As a celiac, I can attest that food allergies and sensitivities are far more common than we might have imagined. The authors reveal ten common sensitivities, familiar conditions associated with a food sensitivity and known triggers, if any. Various dietary lifestyles such as paleo, vegan-ism, raw, Mediterranean and many more are explained and analyzed. The books offers suggestions and tips for changing your diet to accommodate sensitivities. There's extensive sections on stocking your pantry, cooking techniques, and kitchen equipment.




    The recipes are easy to follow and not complicated. From cheezy kale chips to fresh marinara sauce and dill pickles. Even the most discriminating will find something they like!




    This book has found a permanent home on my bookshelf.
