By L. Runkle on September 7, 1997
Format: Paperback
This book was written by two State Registered Nurses in the U.K. While the theory is admirable, (introduce one or two biologic families of food per day, and observe the results), the practice of the diet, as written, would only be possible in large metropolitan areas of the U. S.

If one is not a hunter, the meats used are very difficult to obtain in the U.S., due to game laws. (You cannot sell game that you have shot, so game needs to be raised for human consumption.) That cuts out Quail's egg salad, Game bird casserole, (calling for a brace of grouse or partridge or three pigeons), Wild boar cutlets with mushroom sauce, and even Prawn, avocado and fennel salad (shrimp or crayfish can be obtained; prawns cannot.) There is a vegetarian alternative, but the authors mention that that will eliminate meat choices from your diet in the future.

There are no sources listed for supplies except "health food stores." I am a member of my state's largest natural-foods cooperative, and live within five minutes of the largest food store in the state. I also live near Indian and East Asian groceries, and I cannot find fresh, whole, sheep's milk yogurt, nor organic venison.

The book is meant for audiences in the U.K., with growing seasons in the U. K. Under no stretch of the imagination can I conceive of a time when I will get fresh blueberries, raspberries, parsnips, and pumpkin in a 28 day stretch. The problem is even worse for the game meats. There is no 28-day stretch when all of the mentioned game is in season. In the land of corn-fed deer, there is no way that any of the game hunted could be termed organic. Plaice is the fish of choice, and not easily obtained in Iowa.

I can translate aubergine to eggplant, courgette to zuchinni. But when chopped cooked swede was mentioned, I had to do some hunting in other cookbooks to realize that they meant rutabega, and not my Uncle Jon Gustafson.

There are other, better, books for my purposes
