From the Back Cover
'Cooking Without' is not only a collection of delicious and simple recipes but is also a book about health: how to gain it and how best to keep it. By giving the body a sufficient amount of the nutrients it needs, it has the best opportunity to heal itself and stay well.
The recipes in 'Cooking Without' obtain their flavour from ingredients which are health promoting rather than from high levels of slat, fat or sugar. Ingredients such as wheat, dairy products and yeast, which cause many individuals to have health problems, have also been excluded. These foods, which are often linked to health disorders such as candida and irritable bowel syndrome, can also be an underlying factor in more serious health problems.
The book encourages you to build health by eating enough of the right kind of food at regular intervals. The result is a way eating that encourages the body to produce extra energy which can then be used for elimination, healing and weight control.
