Food is powerful medicine and whole foods, or foods in their natural unrefined forms, offer us vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that prevent diseases and create a state of balance and health within us. Nutritionist Tom Malterre and Chef Alissa Segersten understand that food can be both healing and delicious and in The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook they provide information on the importance of living a whole foods lifestyle, and how to transition into one. Readers will learn to prepare foods that promote optimal health, prevent disease, and energize the body. With over 300 delicious, nourishing recipes, readers will discover amazing, new ways to cook whole grains, fish, poultry, meat and veggies. The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook includes:
Evidence-based information on whole foods Gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and soy-free recipes A complete guide to stocking your whole foods pantry The whole story on the current diet trends and how to adapt them to best serve your individual needs The real story behind toxicity in food and avoiding PCBs GMOs and non-organics Recipes that any vegan, vegetarian, carnivore or omnivore will love
Whether serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks or desserts, readers will enjoy their food while healing their immune system, decreasing the inflammation that causes disease, balancing hormones and promoting better overall health.
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.
