BOOK EXCERPT:

Discover just how deliciously simple whole foods cooking can be with this essential cookbook, based on the popular Nutrition Stripped blog, featuring more than 100 exciting and good-for-you recipes and color photography throughout. Search the web and you’ll find a variety of recipes from “health food” bloggers and “nutritionists.” Yet many of these recipes often follow trends or fad diets. Now, McKel Hill, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and wellness coach, takes you back to bare basics to enjoy the amazing benefits and incomparable flavor of whole foods—nature’s true healthy bounty. Drawing inspiration from nature, the turning of the seasons, the world of plants, nutrient dense foods and hidden gems in the world of superfoods, Hill celebrates simplicity, and shares her vast professional knowledge and expertise in this practical and easy-to-use cookbook. But Nutrition Stripped isn’t just an approach to eating—it’s a lifestyle that will help you look, feel, and be your best. Whole foods cooking is the foundation of health and can be enjoyed no matter what your dietary preference, whether it's vegan, paleo, or gluten-free. Hill’s whole food, plant-based recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, and entirely free from processed food, yet all can be adapted to specific tastes and needs, making them realistic, approachable, global, and livable. Start your day with delights such as Turmeric Milk (the new green smoothie), Carrot Cake Quinoa Porridge, or Plantain Flatbread with Poached Egg and Honey. For dinner, feast on Beetroot Burgers with Maple Mustard or Carrot Gnocchi with Carrot Greens Pesto. And don’t forget dessert—indulge with a mouthwatering slice of Raw Peach Tart with Coconut Whipped Cream or some Salted Caramel Brownies. Illustrated with beautiful, modern and minimalistic color photographs, Nutrition Stripped shows you how delicious and simple it can be to eat healthier with whole foods.

Gendered Food Practices From Seed To Waste

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

In nearly all societies gender has been, and continues to be, central in defining roles and responsibilities related to the production, manufacturing, provisioning, eating, and disposal of food. The 2016 Yearbook of Women's History presents a collection of articles that look into food-related practices and shifting relations of gender across food systems. Authors explore changing understandings of food-related activities at the intersection of food and gender, across time and space. Articles about the lives of market women in late medieval food trades in the Low Countries, the practices of activist women in the garbage movement of prewar Tokyo, the way grain storage technologies affect women in Zimbabwe, through to the impact of healthy eating blogs in the digital age.

Marx In The Field

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

Marx in the Field is a unique edited collection illustrating the relevance of the Marxian method to study contemporary capitalism and the global development process. Essays in the collection bring Marx ‘to the field’ in three ways. They illustrate how Marxian categories can be concretely deployed for field research in the global economy; they analyse how these categories may be adapted during fieldwork; and they discuss data collection methods supporting Marxian analysis. Crucially, many of the contributions expand the scope of Marxian analysis by combining its insights with those of other intellectual traditions, including radical feminisms, critical realism and postcolonial studies. The volume defines the possibilities and challenges of fieldwork guided by Marxian analysis, including those emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic. The collection takes a global approach to the study of development and of contemporary capitalism. While some essays focus on themes and geographical areas of long-term concern for international development – like informal or rural poverty and work across South Asia, Southern and West Africa, or South America – others focus instead on actors benefitting from the development process – like regional exporters, larger farmers, and traders – or on unequal socio-economic outcomes across richer and emerging economies and regions – including Gulf countries, North America, Southern Europe, or Post-Soviet Central Asia and Eastern Europe. Some essays explore global processes cutting across the world economy, connecting multiple regions, actors and inequalities. While some of the contributions focus on classic Marxian tropes in the study of contemporary capitalism – like class, labour and working conditions, agrarian change, or global commodity chains and prices – others aim at demonstrating the relevance of the Marxian method beyond its traditional boundaries – for instance, for exploring the interplays between food, nutrition and poverty; the links between social reproduction, gender and homework; the features of migration and refugees regimes, tribal chieftaincy structures or prison labour; or the dynamics structuring global surrogacy. Overall, through the analysis of an extremely varied set of concrete settings and cases, this volume illustrates the extraordinary insights we can gain by bringing Marx in the field.

Hardcore Health Live Young

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

We don't just want to live a long time. We want to live young! We want to enjoy life, be active, look good, travel, make love and socialize. Robert Yonover, PhD, attacks the problem of aging with personally researched techniques and practical advice from today's medical experts. Jennifer Armstrong, M.D., Advanced Skincare and Surgery Medcenter, Newport Beach, CA, shares guidelines for keeping skin young. Adam Crowe, PDC, permaculture consultant, herbalist and organic farmer, gives practical advice on growing bursting-with-nutrition food. Katie Amato, BS, MA Public Health, shares healthy and delicious recipes. Hardcore Health-Live Young! is a wellness and health book that attacks the problem of aging by staying healthy, fighting age and disease with diet and lifestyle, and "living young." We seem to be bifurcating as a society into those who learn about how to be healthy and take care of themselves and those who choose instead to simply live the commercialized low-nutrient, high-toxin, sedentary lifestyle. Since you are reading this book, I suspect you are one of the former. Not only have the guidelines to healthy living presented in this book been shown effective, but having practiced this myself virtually my whole life, I have had direct personal experience watching what happened to my friends and family according to the choices they made…Do you want a shorter life burdened with disease and fatigue? Or do you want a life of vitality and adventure? The choice is yours, —Joseph Pizzorno, ND, author of the Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine (2,000,000 copies in six languages), the internationally acclaimed Textbook of Natural Medicine, The Toxin Solution.
