Summary "It's time to get back to your roots (literally) with Back to Butter. It's time to get away from processed and industrialized foods and enjoy an energizing, nutrient-rich, and satisfying lifestyle. It's time to feel great! The traditional food movement focuses on real, whole foods--foods that our ancestors ate--and is quickly becoming the diet and lifestyle of choice for those looking to nourish themselves in the most sound and natural way possible. Traditional foods are unprocessed, naturally raised, traditionally prepared, deeply nourishing, and decidedly unrefined. Authors Molly Chester and Sandy Schrecengost take you through the basics of a traditional diet with ease and understanding, offering a list to get your pantry started and why some of the natural foods that you may have thought you should avoid (like butter, eggs, full-fat dairy, and meat) are actually healthy and essential. And eating a traditional diet doesn't mean you can't have your favorites [such as] White Bean Chicken Chili, Caesar Salad with Sourdough Herbed Croutons, Baked Potatoes with the Works, Buttermilk Pan-Fried Chicken, Wonderful Winter Pot Roast, Hummus, Guacamole, and Onion Dips, Peach Caramel Pie, and Rich Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Sauce. Rediscover how great whole foods can be with this guide to natural, healthy meals that make you want to thank your grandmother's grandmother's grandmother"-- Provided by publisher.
