So I've been lurking around the NT posts for a little while now and am pretty sure that once I know more about it I will LOVE it. I also think I may buy a NT book. But, can anyone give an explanation of what NT is? I'm a bit too overwhelmed trying to sort through the posts on it with the limited internet time that I get. Thanks so much

Nourishing Traditions is the bestest, awesomest, greatest book on nutrition that I have ever read. It focuses on preparing and foods the way people have for hundreds of years, and making similar food choices, as opposed to the way modern "nutrition experts" claim we should eat. The idea is to allow for optimal digestion and nurtitional value of our food. It goes agains "diet dictocrats" and the food pyramid, etc. Great stuff!!

The reviews on Amazon were interesting. Anyone interested in NT should read them before spending the cash (I'd certainly like to read the book out of curiosity).

Some of the negative reviews on Amazon are so obviously fake that I am surprised that anyone believes them. Except, of course, for the people who want to believe them.

I've learned that if there are strong negative reviews on a book on Amazon, that it's usually worth reading, whether I end up agreeing with it or not.

Those negative reviews of NT on Amazon are bunk, IMHO!
