When I discovered Nourishing Traditions a few years ago, I was both elated and horrified. Elated to learn that foods I loved like cheese, milk and red meat were actually good for me. Horrified because all I was left with was one cookbook that didn’t contain most of my favorite recipes.
Fortunately, I have learned a thing or two. Thing One: Most of your favorite family recipes can be remade to incorporate Nourishing Traditions principles. I am helping a friend do that right now and it’s easy! Thing Two: There are tons of recipes out there that are both nourishing and creative. Some of my favorite sites are The Nourishing Gourmet and Kitchen Stewardship. This week I discovered Kelly the Kitchen Kop, who has a whole section on healthy homemade chinese food! Bring on the healthy fried rice!
