The Blue Zone Kitchen
Some good ideas but where did these people get almond milk, soy milk, and for many, coconut milk? That seems incorrect.
In order for these exceedingly simple recipes the work, the ingredients need to be fresh and locally produced. Better yet ... hand foraged that day off the rocks near the ocean. Not really possible unless you are fortunate enough to live in one of these regions. The wisdom of this book is in the ethos of preparing and eating meals and not so much in the actual recipes.
