Nothing is slowing the expansion of our collective girths. A volume of lipid of biblical proportions is sweeping the planet like a pestilence of the past.
And a simple cure might not be possible without significant change to our food supply.
Wild Foods explores whether the food you rely on for your good heatlh and well-being are even worth eating at all due to their elevated levels of sucrose and water, at the expense of dietary fibre, protein and benficial micro-nutrients.
The book explains that we need to eat a whole raft of wild foods. There are no 'superfoods' that are the whole answer to health. No culture survived on one or even a dozen 'special' foods.
If we want to regain our heatlh we cannot do better than to embrace some aspects of our ideal diet through looking back at the 60, 000 years of Indigenous culture- comprised of an arsenal of wild foods.
