Donna Schwenk’s world changed when she discovered cultured foods. After a difficult pregnancy and various health problems, she became determined to find answers to what ailed her. And in her quest, she came across the ancient art of home fermentation, a food preparation technique that supercharges everyday foods with beneficial bacteria to balance your digestive system, and vitamins and minerals to enhance your overall health. This simple, natural process has been used for thousands of years to create everything from drinks like kefir and kombucha to foods like kimchi and pickles. After incorporating fermented foods into her life, Donna began to experience a vitality that she had never known. And then she was hooked! She started a new life as a teacher and writer, blogging on her website culturedfoodlife.com, in an effort to bring the beautiful world of fermented foods to as many people as possible. She now works with thousands of people to open the door to a world of foods that can help improve an array of health problems including high blood pressure, diabetes, allergies, acne, hypertension, asthma, and irritable bowel syndrome. In Cultured Food for Life Donna brings this same information to you and shows you that preparing and eating cultured foods is easy, fun, and delicious! After speaking to the science behind the healing power of probiotic foods and telling the astonishing story of how she healed herself and her family, Schwenk walks you, step by step, through the basic preparation techniques for kefir, kombucha, cultured vegetables, and sprouted flour, plus more than 135 recipes that use these foods to create dishes to please any palate. With recipes like Herbed Omelet with Kefir Hollandaise Sauce, Sprouted Ginger Scones with Peaches and Kefir Cream, Kefir Veggie Sprouted Pizza, Apple Sauerkraut, and Brownie Cupcakes with Kefir Frosting, along with inspirational stories from Donna’s family and friends, you’ll learn everything you want to know about a diet that’s as tasty as it is healthy.

Just Food for Thought is a story about Patty's life during ages 18 to 25. She leaves Texas to go off to college in the Pacific Northwest, leaving behind her family and friends. Her idyllic ways of thinking are soon challenged. She experiences life on her own. She becomes ingrained into college life, where she makes many friends. However, she never forgets her strong family roots while finding her way in the world. She crosses paths with a handsome upper classman, then enters into a darker realm. But she also crosses paths with good people who help her through rough times. She marries, has a baby, eats health foods, sews clothes, writes poetry. She sees a ghost, has dreams of the future, and dreams with messages. She weathers storms. She learns that friends die, babies cry, and mother's love lasts. She learns about the special bond of love with her dogs, even years after her first Labrador dies and her second one appears. She sees how unconscious connections with people spiral from past to future. She learns that her own life moves in spirals - goes full circle - then meets on a different plane. Patty's memoir, begun twenty five years after the events, was based on vague recollections. Eight years later, the memoirs became intertwined with her letters. The letters were presented to her by her mother in 2013 - lovingly tied into bundles with baby blue satin ribbons. Vague recollections of her life, as it turns out, do not always match letters written at the time. Both accounts remain within the story, which has led to some duplication, as well as some contradiction. That's just food for thought, dear reader.

Eat for Heat is best described as a complementary concept that has yet to be discussed anywhere in the world of health, diet, and nutrition. The book takes a close look at the modern habit of compulsive beverage consumption, mass prescriptions to “drink 8, 8-ounce glasses of water per day,” phobias about salt and sugar, and turns them all upside down in classic 180DegreeHealth style. The objective? Increase the concentration of the fluid in our bodies for increased core body temperature (rise in metabolism), increased circulation to the extremities for warm hands and feet, and taking the burden off of the stress system. The concept is extremely simple. Eat for Heat discusses simple principles on how to make minor changes to your meals and drinking habits to keep your body in a better metabolic “zone” all day every day. It can apply to any dietary belief system, and can even yield tremendous health benefits to those eating just a regular Western diet. Everyone can benefit from the simple concept within.

Serving foods that are appetising is no easy task for the parent of a child on a gluten-free diet due to condition such as celiac disease. Forbidden foods -- wheat, rye, oats, and barley -- pervade most recipes and food labels are not always clearly marked. This cookbook, however, can save families time, money, and anguish by providing clear guidelines for selecting ingredients and preparing food safely. But best of all, this is the first cookbook to provide delectable gluten-free recipes formulated especially for children. The rest of the family will want to try them, too. In addition to food recipes, there are tips for cooking substitution, entertaining, a list of resources, as well as a detailed trouble-shooting chart for the gluten-free baker. Sanderson also offers advice on how to deal with situations outside the home that may compromise a child's diet, such as peer-pressure and day care.

At any time, in any place, food is there for the taking—if only people knew how to look. This foraging handbook tells readers how to recognize the rich possibilities that surround them—whether in the city or in the countryside. The author—who makes a living out of foraging—reveals the how, why, and what of this lost art. He starts with the many different sorts of habitat, from waste ground to woodland, from cliff top to coastland. Many of these plants—nettles, dandelions, fat hen, sorrel—grow so profusely they are considered a nuisance, yet they offer fantastic food possibilities and are rich in nutrients. For each plant and mushroom, ideas for how to use them in the kitchen as well as their nutritional qualities are provided. With tips from some of the most exciting chefs working in Britain today, this book will take readers on a voyage of discovery.
