Bulk Herb Store-Nourishing Traditions Book Review And Giveaway

I have been making a concerted effort to eat more healthy and only real food.  I have cut sugar out of my diet and only use natural sweeteners.  I have even taken up juicing!  The more I learn about the "food like products" we buy in the store the more I don't want to eat them.  So when Bulk Herb Store offered to allow me to review one of their books I knew exactly which one!
Bulk Herb Store is a company which carries herbs, herbal mixes, books, water filters, how-to videos, clothing accessories, seeds, and much more!  Something I really liked on their site and have used several times is a How To page on making a tincture, salve, tea, poultice, and and other natural remedies!  All in an easy to use format.
Here is some information on the owners and their mission
When we were growing up, herbs were like tomatoes. We grew them. We put them up for the winter. We used them daily, and gave concoctions away to other people in need of them. My mother was always teaching us. If we were weeding the garden, she would talk about which weeds were herbs and what those herbs could do. She instilled in us a passion to learn and create.

By the time I (Shoshanna) was 13, my family started the Bulk Herb Store. Quite a few years have passed since then, and my wonderful husband James and I now run the Bulk Herb Store together. Our son Jeremiah James helps pull your orders. At four years old, Jeremiah already can go outside, gather herbs in the wild and know what they are good for. He doesn't even know he's growing into a little herbalist, but he is!

At the Bulk Herb Store we provide our homemade concoctions, our experiences, and the tested wisdom of others. We want to do more than sell quality herbs. We want to teach you what we know and inspire you to learn and research beyond that. You can write to us here. Happy herbaling!

Nourishing TraditionsBulk Herb Store has a very good selection of herbs and spices and even teas.  I love the water filter they carry and they have some great how to books and videos.  The book I picked to review is Nourishing Traditions .  This is a groundbreaking book that exposes the lies that the food industry has preached to us for years.  And the author backs it up with study after study so you see the science behind the claims. 

Recalling the culinary customs of our ancestors and looking ahead to a future of robust good health for young and old, Nourishing Traditions offers modern families a fascinating guide to wise food choices and proper preparation techniques. Nutrition researcher Sally Fallon unites the wisdom of the ancients with the latest independent and accurate scientific research.

The revised the updated Second Edition contains over 700 delicious recipes that will please both exacting gourmets and busy parents.

I found this book mind-blowing, some of the info I knew but allot of it was totally new to me, but after thinking about it made sense.  The recipes are simple and delicious and after following the advice of the book I'm on the way to healing.  This is an amazing book and I think every young woman and man should be required to read it.  Especially new moms and wives (let's face it ladies, we do most of the shopping and cooking).

I would recommend Bulk Herb Store to anyone looking for herbs, spices, water filters, books on natural healing or herbs, and videos on gardening and herbaling.
