A celebration of food and farms, Nourished Kitchen: Farm-to-Table Recipes for the Traditional Foods Lifestyle is available for preorder. Nourished Kitchen provides a fad-free approach to cooking and eating that emphasizes nutrient-dense, real food, and values quality,environment, and community over the convenience of processed, additive-laden products that are the norm on grocery store shelves.
Based on the research of Weston A. Price, who studied the diets of indigenous peoples to understand the relationship between nutrition and health, a traditional foods diet avoids processed ingredients, but allows meat, animal fat, and grains. It embraces cultured dairy, such as kefir and yogurt, that contain beneficial bacteria; fermented foods, such as sauerkraut and kombucha, that are rich in probiotics; and organ meats that are packed with vitamins and minerals. It also celebrates locally grown foods. By choosing ingredients from nearby sources you create a stronger connection to your food, and have a better understanding what you’re eating and how it was produced.
Nourished Kitchen will be available as both a Softcover and an Ebook.
What People Are Saying about Nourished Kitchen
“What an inspirational book! Jennifer McGruther takes us from the local community and the garden to the kitchen and the table with a collection of delicious, nutritious, traditionally prepared recipes. The Nourished Kitchen deserves a place of honor on your kitchen counter.”
- Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation
“Jennifer McGruther’s road map to culinary integrity delivers us from wandering through the bewilderment of industrial, nutrient-deficient, supermarket detours. The Nourished Kitchen is as essential in the modern kitchen as a slow cooker and electric mixer.”
- Joel Salatin, farmer, lecturer and author of Folks, This Ain’t Normal
“I love this book. It’s gorgeous, informed, and filled with wisdom based on old ways and common sense— the wisdom that we crave. At the same time, it is filled with flavor and style. Jennifer’s food is food that I already love, plus there’s new food I am ready to try.”
- Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy
“Jennifer McGruther brings a wealth of farmhouse wisdom to life in The Nourished Kitchen. Her northern European culinary perspective is a perfect match for her home in the mountains of Colorado, a beacon for how to eat seasonally and locally in a place where the snow flies six months of the year.”
- Hank Shaw, author of Duck, Duck, Goose and creator of the award-winning blog Hunter Angler Gardener Cook
