The Nourishing Cook Blog

February 4, 2010

Here’s an interesting blog!

The writer Kim Knoch is cooking 1 recipe a day from the Nourishing Traditions cookbook put out by Sally Fallon of the Weston A Price Organisation, much like Julie Powell who cooked 1 recipe a day from Julia Childs cookbook, and was followed by the Julie and Julie movie (which is also a great flick).

Interesting she has a page dedicated to the guidelines that the Weston A Price Foundation puts out about diet.

1. Eat whole, natural foods.
2. Eat only foods that will spoil, but eat them before they do.
3. Eat naturally-raised meat including fish, seafood, poultry, beef, lamb, game, organ meats and eggs.
4. Eat whole, naturally-produced milk products from pasture-fed cows, preferably raw and/or fermented, such as whole yogurt, cultured butter, whole cheeses and fresh and sour cream.
5. Use only traditional fats and oils including butter and other animal fats, extra virgin olive oil, expeller expressed sesame and flax oil and the tropical oils-coconut and palm.
6. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, preferably organic, in salads and soups, or lightly steamed.
7. Use whole grains and nuts that have been prepared by soaking, sprouting or sour leavening to neutralize phytic acid and other anti-nutrients.
8. Include enzyme-enhanced lacto-fermented vegetables, fruits, beverages and condiments in your diet on a regular basis.
9. Prepare homemade meat stocks from the bones of chicken, beef, lamb or fish and use liberally in soups and sauces.
10. Use herb teas and coffee substitutes in moderation.
11. Use filtered water for cooking and drinking.
12. Use unrefined Celtic seasalt and a variety of herbs and spices for food interest and appetite stimulation.
13. Make your own salad dressing using raw vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and expeller expressed flax oil.
14. Use natural sweeteners in moderation, such as raw honey, maple syrup, dehydrated cane sugar juice and stevia powder.
15. Use only unpasteurized wine or beer in strict moderation with meals.
16. Cook only in stainless steel, cast iron, glass or good quality enamel.
17. Use only natural supplements.
18. Get plenty of sleep, exercise and natural light.
19. Think positive thoughts and minimize stress.
20. Practice forgiveness

Lately I’ve been getting into organic fermented grain breads (like Rye and Spelt) , as they don’t give me the blood sugar spikes that I used to get with wheat based breads and they are also really filling.  It helps that I’m eating them with other protein foods like meat, yoghurt and eggs.

I’ve updated my current eating plan on the page “How I do it” as with my move to Gold Coast in Australia I am eating a lot of different foods.
