One of the first pieces of advice I give to newbies to real food is, eat the yolks. That’s why I was so excited when Liz Wolfe’s book came out. I love reading her blog, Cave Girl Eats and just knew she would write an entertaining and completely educational book. And she has!Eat the Yolks is written in a witty and intelligent style that keeps you interested and engaged. She addresses many of the food myths that so many of us have been misinformed about.
With chapters like:
- The propaganda police (or how I learned to stop worrying and start eating real food)
- Let’s talk about fat baby
- Cholesterol: Don’t hate!
- Kellogg’s flaccid flakes
- Myth: Animal protein causes cancer
- Myth: We can get all the protein we need from plants
- After agriculture: Traditional food, traditional cultures, traditional preparation
- It’s the hormones honey
- Nutrients, not calories
- How we get there
By the time you finish the book you will have a very good working knowledge about real food. In a very entertaining style, Liz instructs and educates us about how the food and marketing industries have shaped our view of food. She informs us of the need to take control of our food supply and the environment around us.
You don’t have to be “Paleo” to benefit from reading this book. It is geared to all eaters – with information that is critical for improving our health.
This book gives you the information you need to make better choices about food for your family. It will inform you with a significant amount of knowledge about food industry myths and how you can start to change the way you see food.
Wolfe busts all the dietary myths regarding fats, carbs, dairy, protein, etc. – there is so much to learn. While it may be overwhelming to think about the the changes necessary, Wolfe gets you right on board the journey and you’ll never look back.
Food that requires marketing jargon, fancy-schmancy labeling, or, worse, a cartoon spokesperson (or spokes-rabbit, or spokes-tiger, or spokes-leprechaun) isn’t food. It’s an edible industrial product.
I like that. I think Liz hit the nail right on it’s very head with that phrase!
