With over 60 delicious recipes from cook Marguerite Patten, who completely eased her own painful arthritic symptoms through diet, and a comprehensive self-treatment plan from nutritionist Jeannette Ewin. Marguerite Patten suffered from crippling arthritis, but was completely eased of her painful symptoms after following Giraud Campbell's original classic arthritis diet, The New Doctor's Proven Home Cure for Arthritis. However, as a cook she found the recipes impractical and often unpalatable- so she set about creating a whole new set of easy to prepare, good to eat, arthritis-beating recipes. The 60 delicious recipes are accompanied by a nutritional plan devised by Harvard medical School trained nutrition expert and author Jeannette Ewin
"Wild spinach about 7 feet tall and fully mature. Well-fed wild spinach is well-branched and produces a huge quantity of seeds when mature. The leaves are still edible at this stage but are reduced in quality, taking on a somewhat off-flavor. According to research on other mature plants, the leaves on these older plants retain most of their nutrients and phytochemicals as long as they are still green." (Left: The author stands in for perspective, 2006.)
Imagine what you could do with eighteen delicious new greens in your dining arsenal including purslane, chickweed, curly dock, wild spinach, sorrel, and wild mustard.
John Kallas makes it fun and easy to learn about foods you've unknowingly passed by all your life. Through gorgeous photographs, playful, but authoritative text, and ground-breaking design he gives you the knowledge and confidence to finally begin eating and enjoying edible wild plants.
Edible Wild Plants divides plants into four flavor categories -- foundation, tart, pungent, and bitter. Categorizing by flavor helps readers use these greens in pleasing and predictable ways. According to the author, combining elements from these different categories makes the best salads.
This field guide is essential for anyone wanting to incorporate more natural and whole foods into their diet. First ever nutrient tables that directly compare wild foods to domesticated greens are included. Whether looking to enhance a diet or identify which plants can be eaten for survival, the extensive information on wild foods will help readers determine the appropriate stage of growth and how to properly prepare these highly nutritious greens.
John Kallas is one of the foremost authorities on North American edible wild plants and other foragables. He's learned about wild foods through formal academic training and over 35 years of hands-on field research. John has a doctorate in nutrition, a master's in education, and degrees in biology and zoology.
He's a trained botanist, nature photgrapher, writer, researched, and teacher. In 1993 he founded the Institute for the Study of Edible Wild Plants and Other Foragables along with its educational branch, Wild Food Adventures.
John's company is based in Portland, Oregon, where he offers regional workshops, and multi-day intensives on wild foods.

The concept of clean eating is becoming increasingly popular among adults, however it is children who are the most vulnerable to additives and nasty toxins such as sugar, found in unhealthy, processed, and fast food. Because children are still growing and developing, it's important they consume adequate vitamins and nutrients through their diets. Children are, after all, our future. The concept is simple: using fresh ingredients in their most natural state. We say goodbye to gluten, wheat germ, refined sugar, and genetically modified oils, as these can be addictive, acidic, deplete energy, and can cause sluggishness, mood swings, and hyperactive behaviour in children. Feeding the Future is a glossy lifestyle/cookbook filled with inspiring recipes that all children - from those aged two to grown-up "kidults" - will love. These recipes are clean, nutritious, and delicious, as well as being easy to make. The book is the perfect tool for health-conscious and time-poor parents.
