Chef Braux's recipes were like a "culinary awakening", to me. I realized that you can actually have the proverbial (healthy) cake and eat it, too. Not only are the dishes in his book quick and easy to make, but they are also outstandingly delicious and satisfying! I don't miss my old way of eating at all, and I feel much better after a meal from "How to Lower Your Cholesterol With French Gourmet Food" than after my former fare of so-called "Old World comfort dishes". Instead of being ready for a nap, I'm energized and ready to go.
What really blows me away is Alain Braux's concise, no-nonsense approach to teaching us about food quality. We're so accustomed to mindlessly stuffing ourselves with popular grocery store items, that we've overlooked how the giant food corporations have gradually poisoned their products to improve their bottom lines. Most of the time, even the big manufacturers don't even know where exactly their base ingredients come from - it's all outsourced through several layers of obscure brokerages without regulation or oversight.
So I appreciate it that Chef Braux takes us by the hand and leads us back to the natural well of eating well, so we stay well. (Well, wasn't that a mouthful?) Seriously, who has time to read through hundreds of pages of health reports? Not me. I've learned more about food and how it affects our health, in 1 hour of reading the first part of this book rather than wading for hours through internet junk in search of reliable information.
"How To Lower Your Cholesterol With French Gourmet Food" is entertaining and highly educational. And it worked for this "hard head" when it came to giving up comfortable old ways. My new ways taste much better!
Before reading Alain's book and others, I can now see I was eating too many empty calories that left me hungry after a few hours, and under-nourished. (I ate almost no fruits and vegetables, for example).I now find it simple to eat healthy foods that sustain me and the environment that have increased my energy and concentration levels.
Alan's suggests foods that leave us feeling satisfied and nourished properly.He tells us how to best use sugar and butters, and even how to cheat on our diets... in an intelligent way.
He explained to me the detrimental effects that barbequeing meat has on one's health, and why microwaving and over-cooking food destroys much of its nutrient value. Shopping is much easier as well, as he has provided lists of herb, pantry, refrigerator and freezer 'staples'. He has lists of 'no-no's that make it easy to avoid food that is horrible to my health.
Other tips I value especially are: how to make a super healthy breakfast easily, how to cook eggs in the most beneficial way, and why we should eat more live, fresh food to prevent disease, instead of causing it, and destroying the planet in the process. He also tell you best pots and pans to buy and places to shop for quality ingredients (In Austin and elsewhere).
Alain describes the importance of not eating food that has a negative impact on the digestive track, (which he notes is where most degenerative diseases start.) This book is easy to read and humorous and a steal of an investment. It leaves us with inspiration and practical tips about how we can joyfully and creatively take responsibility for how we treat and feed our bodies ."
