You should read this book



Even though I am waiting for Real Food, Mother and Baby to be published, everyone should read Nina's first book.
It is the book that opened my eyes to how I really should be eating. Traditionally. Foods that have been around forever.
"Don't you find it odd that the experts blame butter and beef for heart disease, even though heart disease is new and traditional foods are old? Heart disease as we know it was first diagnosed by James Herrick in 1912; it is a 20th century disease. Meanwhile, we (or our ancestors) have been eating milk and butter for 10,000 to 30,000 years and beef for 2 or 3 million."

It sounds like a great book. I'll have to pick up a copy sometime. Thanks for telling us about it!

I love that book!

I read a review on the Weston A Price foundation website that was not favorable to Real Food for Mother and Baby... If you haven't read the book yet, check this link out:

I have read the book, and I have read the thumbs down- it's still a good guide to help moms feed their babies real food and supports breastfeeding. And, I still support Nina and WAPF foundations :) They've both transformed my life!
