Is Nourishing Traditions your Food Bible? If so, then you are going to love The Nourishing Traditions Cookbook for Children: Teaching Children to Cook the Nourishing Traditions Way. Enter our raffle below for a chance to win your copy now. There’s no better gift for your children, grandchildren or friends’ children.
The book by Suzanne Gross and Sally Fallon Morell is illustrated by Angela Sette Eisenbart and serves up chapters on eggs, butter, bone broths and soups, lacto-fermented foods, meat and organ meats. As the kids would say, it offers the “funnest way” to learn the whys of healthy eating AND the simple hows of cooking the Nourishing Traditions way.
There are more than 100 recipes for healthy snacks, desserts, baked goods, lunches and breakfasts. Though written with kids in mind, it’s the perfect way for visually oriented adults to learn to cook “real foods” as well.
What’s more, this is a souper book that will teach kids how and why to make broth. Here’s an excerpt:
What’s your favorite kind of soup? There’s red tomato soup, orange squash soup and green bean soup. There are clear broths, creamy blended soups and chunky chowders. How do you like to eat your soup? Do you like to slurp it with a spoon? Or drink it in a mug? Maybe you like to dip toast in it.
No matter how you like your soup, there’s one secret ingredient that you must not forget. It’s something that’s white and hard and a dog’s favorite treat. Do you know what it is?
It’s bones! Bones give soup lots of flavor and nutrients. The hard outside of the bone contains minerals that help your body build strong bones and teeth. Hidden inside the bone is a soft fat called marrow. In Russian, marrow is called “bone brains.” Indeed, marrow is very good for your brain and all the organs in your body. The rubbery joints on bones are made of gelatin. Gelatin helps your body digest food better. This means your body will be able to absorb more nutrients from your food.
Bones have so many good things in them, but how do we get these good things into our bodies? Can we chew up a bone like a dog? No, our jaws aren’t strong enough for that. A better way is to put some bones in a pot with water and make bone broth…
