Friday Read and Write

Yesterday's post was about cooking from scratch and not using processed foods, so I thought it might be appropriate to suggest some reading material for those of you who haven't quite got on the whole/local/organic/non-processed food boat or even if you have they are just great inspirational reads.

In defense of Food, Michael Pollan - Written in a evolutionary world view but still enlightening!

The Vintage Remedies Guide to Real Food. Jesse Hawkins is a whole living expert.  I recommend anything by her and her company Vintage Remedies.

Don Colbert, Eat This and Live!  Simple to follow.

The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
Folks, This Ain't Normal by Joel Salatin
Both Pollan and Kingsolver subscribe to evolution but Salatin presents a Christian World view.
Do you have any favorites to recommend?

These all look wonderful! I am enjoying my extra time to read as a graduate and would enjoy several of these.

I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on Vintage Remedies; it sounds like you really appreciate Jesse's work. Do they have a specific worldview that comes out strongly in their books? Did you take one of their courses, or have you simply bought their books?

I learned a lot from the course I took from the School of Natural Healing, but I was wanting to get another perspective, because they have several ideas about diet that I wouldn't agree with at this point and want to stay well-rounded......

Thanks for your thoughts!
