There’s an awful lot of confusion about just what healthy” food really is-and a vegetarian, vegan, or low-fat diet is no guarantee of a healthy diet. Wholefood cooking-using ingredients that are as close to their natural state as possible without unnecessary processing and refining-honors the basic integrity of food, keeping intact its inherent ability to nourish. That’s just what Wholefood does. With more than 400 recipes, tips on how to use the book, a glossary, information on cooking basics, and techniques, variations, and indications of vegan and gluten/dairy-free recipes, this book is the best tool for planning healthful and delightful meals. Author Jude Blereau introduces readers to the basic wholefoods, and different ways to prepare them. The book also contains some fabulous meat dishes and a delicious desserts and baking section.
