Foundation Building

These are books which helped to formed the basis for many of my dietary positions.  Mind you, I am not a fanatic, but have been able to incorporate many of these core concepts into my nutritional beliefs. Life is about balance. There were certainly periods in my life where these concepts were seemingly forgotten based on my behavior but they were always lurking. If only knowing better automatically translated into doing better!

Many of the concepts in these books have made it into the mainstream (at least partially) since I read about them. I got away from reading books so much with the expanded availability of information on the Internet. Don’t underestimate the value of reading a BOOK.  Check out these titles and perhaps look for an updated book on the same subject matter.
