9780316227940: Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimum Health

Winner of the 2014 IACP Cookbook Award in the category of "Food Matters."

The next stage in the food revolution--a radical way to select fruits and vegetables and reclaim the flavor and nutrients we've lost.

Ever since farmers first planted seeds 10,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables. Unwittingly, we've been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar and low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for more than 400 generations.

EATING ON THE WILD SIDE reveals the solution--choosing modern varieties that approach the nutritional content of wild plants but that also please the modern palate. Jo Robinson explains that many of these newly identified varieties can be found in supermarkets and farmer's market, and introduces simple, scientifically proven methods of preparation that enhance their flavor and nutrition. Based on years of scientific research and filled with food history and practical advice, EATING ON THE WILD SIDE will forever change the way we think about food.

Review :

"I learned so much from this outstanding book about how to choose, store, and prepare the best varieties of fruits and vegetables available today to compensate for the drastic changes that plant breeding and modern agriculture have wrought on their wild ancestors. Jo Robinson tells you how to shop, cook, and eat to maximize your intake of protective phytonutrients that nature puts in plants. Highly recommended reading for all who are health conscious." --Andrew Weil, MD

"What would we do without Jo Robinson? A modern-day Hippocrates, she's written the prescription for good health in her phenomenal new book, Eating on the Wild Side. And this is no bitter medicine: Robinson points to wiser choices we can make not only at the farmers' market but also in the aisles of our supermarkets. The cure for what ails us is right there, and it's delicious." --Dan Barber, chef and owner of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns

"Eating on the Wild Side is a wonderful, enlightening book. Jo Robinson has done a magnificent job of bringing together information from so many diverse disciplines--most of it unknown to nutritional scientists, physicians, and lay people alike." --Loren Cordain, Ph.D., author of The Paleo Diet

"With Eating on the Wild Side, Jo Robinson has written the next "Omnivore's Dilemma--"a book of revelations that food lovers and home cooks everywhere will be reading, recommending, quoting, and living by. Robinson may not be a household name yet, but her groundbreaking work will turn much of what you thought you knew about food upside down and inside out." --Epicurious.com
