The focus of the book is to show that eating real whole traditionally prepared foods should be our focus, rather than the 'nutritionism' which is popular today. "Nutritionism" is what we see all over mainstream media- quick little quips like, "Fiber prevents cancer" or "Vitamin D prevents heart attacks". Fiber isn't a food. Fiber is in food, and is found in foods that have many other healthful properties. We can't expect to isolate fiber from it's source and have it provide the same benefits as fiber found in conjunction with all the other goodies in fruits, whole grains, veggies, etc.
The individual chapters go into the 'why' this works the way it does, dispelling nutrition myths along the way.
Chapter 1 – Food, Not Nutrients
A great way to make sure you've covered all the real nutrition basics both for yourself and for your children, homeschooled or not! I know I talk to my kids all the time about food, health, and nutrition, but a good comprehensive book is always welcome to fill in any gaps that I might have missed. And I love that it's in real book format. Ebooks are fun, but there's just something about holding a real book in your hands to make it feel valuable You can order online here.
