Imagine a book that gives us an overview of the politics surrounding the food industry, the challenges of breaking our conditioned eating habits plus a great look at the pros and cons of all the major diet/nutrition plans out there (from the Atkins and South Beach Diets to macrobiotics and raw food lifestyles).
Then throw in tools to help reclaim our connection to our body’s innate wisdom on what we should be eating and a comprehensive set of strategies on how we can nourish ourselves with not just the food we eat but also with the “primary food” of loving relationships, meaningful work, physical exercise, and a deep spiritual practice.
Mix all that together and you have a very cool book.
I was introduced to and his great book by my Goddess, Alexandra, who’s currently enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition Joshua founded. (Learn more at IntegrativeNutrition.com.) I’m truly blown away by his wisdom—particularly the grounded way in which he shares the partial truths of various traditions while encouraging us to discover what works for us as we experiment with a set of 12 general guidelines.
We’re gonna start with some startling health stats and then take a quick peek at the 12 steps of Integrative Nutrition. Then we’ll explore some of my favorite Big Ideas on how to bring ‘em to life. If you’re interested in learning more about how to best nourish your (and your family’s) body (and mind and soul), I *HIGHLY* (!!!) recommend you get the book. It’s literally PACKED with dozens of Big Ideas and simply rocks.
