THIS is the book I have been waiting for. Nancy Gain explains the how’s and why’s of ingredients and tools. She explains the proper pans to use, the use of starch, of proteins of liquids, sourdough, kneading and more. If you want to learn a new craft whether out of necessity or pleasure, you go to the experts. If you want to learn how to prepare gluten free breads, cakes and more (that actually taste good), you go to someone who owns the company, who has been in the trenches and who has succeeded. After playing with this book.. I get it! I too, now can make a darn decent loaf of wheat free bread that is not a floppy mess, a desert that guests don’t know is not wheat based, and cookies that melt in your mouth, all without using added chemicals. Every recipe has a story and a history and Nancy tells that story so well that I actually read it before I go through the recipe itself.. If you want to learn the art of making gluten free breads from real ingredients I highly recommend this book and I cannot say enough positive comments about it.
When a person consumes a diet ‘from the earth’, health happens. Disease is prevented, current issues resolve themselves and the mind body connection is strengthened. I have quite a few books on this subject and The Earth Diet is officially one of my favorites. Liana truly gets it and she shares her knowledge in an organized format that is easy to understand. The ingredients she uses are solid and work well. And yes, the recipes I have tried taste delicious. The Earth Diet is a book about real food and also pleasantly non-judgmental about individual diet lifestyle preferences whether it be raw or meat eating or whatever. Having been a raw vegan for a few years in the past to heal myself from some severe physical issues I understand how food affects you. I’ve done the work to understand and so has Liana. I highly recommend this book. Not to be stacked in your bookshelf or buried in your kindle but in your hands, actively using it.. For your health.
I received this book from Hay House and the opinion is mine.
