Books about Eating Clean and Backyard Homesteading

by Rita Calvert, the Local Cook

Clean Food
I’m somehow drawn to the pure and clean eating aura especially with all of the news out there that many of the processed foods aren’t food at all; in other words our human systems can’t metabolize them. Whew! In her book Clean Food, Terry Walters gives hope and encouragement on how and what to eat in season. She conveys the importance of knowing the source of your food. Oh I love that positive direction! The NY Times states there is actually a clean food movement brewing and clean food doesn’t resemble the old medicinal or funky look of health food.

While we’re talking about fresh…here is Terry with a note about herbs:[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkK7dESnbXQ&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&feature=player_embedded&fs=1]

Backyard Homestead
Doesn’t a a feast right outside your door sound tempting? (I bet you’d also love someone to cook it).  Rodale Press’ new book, Backyard Homestead sounds like a most intriquing read and possibly the beginning of a great adventure.
