Real Food All Year: Eating Seasonal Whole Foods for Optimal Health & All-Day Energy (Whole Body Healing)by Nishanga Bliss
Synopses & Reviews
Eating seasonally can be more delicious, more fun, and ultimately more nutritionally beneficial than simply eating whatever produce happens to be in the supermarket. Real Food All Year draws on ancient food traditions and modern research to present a season-by-season guide to eating the way human beings were always meant to eat. In spring, readers will focus on the health of the liver and gall bladder by reducing the ingestion of toxins and enjoying delicious, cleansing greens. Once the weather warms, readers can enjoy the many fruits of summer and focus on their cardiovascular systems. Autumn brings harvest time and many foods that can naturally enhance the immune system. Readers will also learn fermentation and drying methods that have been used for centuries to keep food from harvest time edible in the months to come. In winter, readers can balance their energy with slow food and slow cooking for deep nourishment. Each chapter offers recipes that fit perfectly into that season’s theme and additional tips that can help readers prepare the foods that will maintain their energy and health all year long.
Real Food All Year is a practical and important season-by-season guide to cooking techniques and recipes that allow readers to eat in harmony with nature. Using local, whole foods, readers learn to create delicious meals that can enhance their energy and well-being.
For thousands of years, human lives and diets have been closely tied to the rhythms of the seasons—and for good reason. Following the season-by-season nutritional principles of Chinese medicine is the best way to maximize the nutrients in your diet and strengthen your body. Real Food All Year offers seasonal shopping lists and meal suggestions, detoxifying cleanses drawn from the wisdom of ancient traditions, and tips for putting together quick snacks on the go. This guide includes everything you need to enjoy the pleasures of eating fresh foods and nourishing your body in the way nature intended.
In Real Food All Year, you’ll learn to:
• Use Eastern medicinal principles to balance your diet for greater energy
• Understand how each season affects your body’s health
• Refresh your body with simple, energy-building cleanses
• Prepare delicious meals using over 35 gluten-free recipes
