it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

Absolutely one of the most inspiring books I've read in QUITE some time - especially considering that it's basically a cookbook. And the subtitle is correct - it is a challenge to everything you "think" you know about nutrition. I'm a self-professed (other people think so too ;)) health nut, but this book really caused me to stop and THINK about the differences in what we might consider healthy, and what your body actually needs to function.

As a "recovering vegan", this book laid out some spectacular concepts - use milk (raw, fresh, and from a grass-fed source), butter (same), and eggs (predominately the yolks)... everything you've heard is bad for you, but tastes OH SO GOOD! ;)

Lots of good information, and has helped me to broaden my mind when it comes to food, and how I prepare it. If you're as into nutrition (or just want a reason to smear good butter on bread), you should take a look - it's definitely worth it.
