I saw a Naturopathic Doctor last night for the first time. Because I love to cook, she suggested that to combat some small intestine/bacterial issues I should not only purchase some fermented stuff (kraut, etc.), but I should check out the Nourishing Traditions cookbook.

The reviews online seem to contain nothing but praise. It's obvious that grains are still "OK" in this book, and I'm not an idiot - I don't plan on cooking with grains just because a cookbook says to. My main reason to check this out is because I love cookbooks, I love cooking, and I love eating real food.

For those in the primal/paleo/grain-free community - tell me this: Are there a good variety of recipes? Are the non-recipe portions a good read? Any favorite recipes that have won you (or your family) over?

Thanks!
