Real Food and The Devil's Punchbowl
The book is 275 pages long, with another 55 pages of references, etc. The main gist of the book is on page 273, where there is a paragraph of the author's recommendations for eating. As you would guess, she recommends generous amounts of fruits and veggies, wild fish and seafood, grass-fed meat, full fat dairy (ideally raw), only traditional fats, whole grains and legumes, cultured and fermented foods, and unrefined sweeteners.
The book makes a compelling case for eating this way and there is a lot of interesting information about each topic. I'm glad that I read it, and I will give consideration to her suggestions.
