Eating on the Wild Side

The Missing Link to Optimum Health

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Winner of the 2014 IACP Cookbook Award in the category of "Food Matters."

The next stage in the food revolution--a radical way to select fruits and vegetables and reclaim the flavor and nutrients we've lost.

Ever since farmers first planted seeds 10,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables. Unwittingly, we've been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar and low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for more than 400 generations.

EATING ON THE WILD SIDE reveals the solution--choosing modern varieties that approach the nutritional content of wild plants but that also please the modern palate. Jo Robinson explains that many of these newly identified varieties can be found in supermarkets and farmer's market, and introduces simple, scientifically proven methods of preparation that enhance their flavor and nutrition. Based on years of scientific research and filled with food history and practical advice, EATING ON THE WILD SIDE will forever change the way we think about food.

So interesting!

Such a fascinating read! I'm not even half way through the book and have made changes to my diet and how I prepare my food. Not a "diet" book, but a book about how to get the most out of what we eat. Has given me much more respect for our food sources too. Read it if you want to improve your health.

Eating on the Wild Side

This is one of the most useful books I have ever read. I'm buying copies for all my relatives!

Very interesting, but...

I'm about halfway through the book, and enjoying her focus on nutrition and what veggie varieties to plant in my suburban garden. I've been planting F1 Juliet tomatoes for years, and agree with that tomato recommendation.

However, in the section on asparagus & avocados she wrote that inulin is a probiotic. It isn't, it's a "prebiotic" -- a starch that feeds many of our probiotic bacteria and fungus gut flora. Yeah, it's a minor editing error, but it annoyed me that she missed it.
