One of the questions I answered on the recent Balanced Bites “ask us (almost) anything” Podcast was about what I like to read. It got me thinkin’.
One of the books that has a permanent place on my nightstand is Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food* by Dr. Catherine Shanahan.
It’s one of the most fascinating takes on traditional diets and their application to our modern lives I’ve ever read. “Dr. Cate” is part of the Paleo/Primal/Real Food community, but this take on traditional diets, health and even beauty is all her own. It’s uniquely and beautifully presented.
Her words on glycosaminoglycans (ha! nutrition nerd alert) helped convince me to put broth at the top of my list for “Skin Interventions” in my nutritional therapy practice, which later led me to write the Skintervention Guide. So I really do credit this book for the path I took to natural body care and healing. I owe Dr. Cate much gratitude.
This is a must-read!
