"Nourishing traditions"

I am finally reading a book I have wanted to read for a while.  My friend MK has shared things from this book on her blog that have intrigued me, to say the least.

So....as I read I am going to post in this blog things I think you need to know.  So, here we go.....

1.  Never buy margarine!  Buy the real stuff, that is actually a real food....butter!  How margarine is made should be outlawed!  The reputation that butter has been given is shameful.  Shameful on the behalf of advertising and money making schemes.  Shame shame!

2.  Breastfeeding cannot be explained, in great enough detail to you, how much better mothers milk is compared to what is in formula.  You have to at least try to breastfeed when you have a baby...try before you say no.  What is in formula and what is lacking in formula is heartbreaking.  If you can't breastfeed, cross that bridge, if you get there.

3.  I am horrified at how unhealthy america is...especially when compared to other countries...but what should I expect when what is on the shelves in most grocery stores is crap...or should I say what we choose to buy off of the shelves is crap!  Grocery stores do have healthy, good foods...it is just that most of us don't know where to find them or know how to prepare them.
