Dandelion Hunter from the Author: Rebecca Lerner. In this engaging and eye-opening read, forager-journalist Becky Lerner sets out on a quest to find her inner hunter-gatherer in the city of Portland, Oregon. After a disheartening week trying to live off wild plants from the streets and parks near her home, she learns the ways of the first people who lived there and, along with a quirky cast of characters, discovers an array of useful wild plants hiding in plain sight. As she harvests them for food, medicine, and just-in-case apocalypse insurance, Lerner delves into anthropology, urban ecology and sustainability, and finds herself looking at Nature in a very different way. Humorous, philosophical, and informative, Dandelion Hunter has something for everyone, from the curious neophyte to the seasoned forager.

What if someone told you one of the world's most nutritious foods is also tasty, can be cooked many different ways, is easy to find, and is totally free? I know what I'd do: I'd run out and grab some! Well, the good news is, there is such a food: Dandelions. Yes, those pesky weeds with bright yellow flowers you've grown up thinking are the enemy of perfect lawns are actually food – brought to North America by immigrants who knew how valuable they are. Every part of the dandelion is edible: * Dandelion greens recipes are common throughout Europe and often used in salad, quiche, lasagna and other pasta dishes, and many other familiar and less-familiar dishes. * The honey-like flowers are a healthy and tasty addition to bread, omelets, pancakes, and more – plus they make delectable dandelion wine, dandelion jelly, and dandelion wine. * The buds are often pickled or added to stir frys and other dishes. * The stems can be eaten like noodles. * And the roots add coffee flavor to everything from ice cream and cakes to drinks. And let's not forget dandelion root tea! The Ultimate Dandelion Cookbook offers 148 recipes, plus expert advice and tips, for cooking all parts of the dandelion – one of nature's best free foods. Black and white interior photos. "5 Stars. Here is what we had for dinner last night: Dandelion noodles, picked with revenge in my garden, and eaten up with zest! So great, and so easy to make this recipe from the brand-new Ultimate Dandelion Cookbook. You can see pictures on my blog." --Caleb Warnock author of Backyard Winter Gardening and other books "5 Stars. Kristina Seleshanko has created a wonderful collection of enticing recipes, all featuring those yellow-top, front yard pests: dandelions. She includes some rather expected dishes, like omelets, salads and soups. Other recipes, however, are likely to catch readers off guard, like pizza, soda, jellies, wine and even ice cream and cookies! What I enjoy most about this cookbook is the abundance of education. The author includes valuable nutritional information, but also instructions on how to harvest dandelions, how to preserve them and store and what alters the taste of these greens. She's obviously very knowledgeable. All in all, this book is an excellent value at a great price." --Tanya Dennis Writer & Editor "5 Stars. What a fantastic book! I have seen dandelion recipes here and there, and am determined to try my hand at dandelion cordial, but this book has it all. The author went to great pains to give a very comprehensive book on dandelions in every form. With this book you will learn to use every part of the dandelion to make foods and beverages for every meal of the day. If you are interested in frugal living or just trying something a little different, get this book and get out in the yard and start picking!" --Jennifer Shambrook Author of I Can Can Chicken!

Make Shift Happen from the Author: Dean Dwyer. Being vegetarian for nineteen years and working out intensely four to five days per week was supposed to yield results. However, the "bagel" of fat that Dean Dwyer clutched with both hands told a very different tale. At the ripe old age of 45, unemployed and facing a very uncertain future, Dwyer found himself at a rather disturbing crossroads, asking a rather counterintuitive question: "What if eating healthy is making me fat?" And with that one simple question, a paradigm shift like no other was unleashed. Suddenly, nothing was sacred ground. Everything was open for debate. il Is cardio important? Hell, is it even necessary? il Is diet and exercise secondary to the battle with our personal demons? il Is it possible that most of us are over-CARB-onating ourselves with the crappy food we eat? il Would we be healthier with NO grains in our diet whatsoever? il Could we lose fat by eating more fat? In an honest and at times humorous portrayal of his own personal journey, Dwyer takes us on a coming-of-age tale about weight loss and it's intersection with truth. What he discovers leads to an evolution of 12 EPIC shifts that resulted in an incredible body, mind, and soul transformation.

Deep Nutrition from the Author: Catherine Shanahan, M.D.. One of the Best Health and Wellness Books of 2017 — Sports Illustrated A self-published phenomenon examining the habits that kept our ancestors disease-free—now with a prescriptive plan for “The Human Diet” to help us all live long, vital, healthy lives. Physician and biochemist Cate Shanahan, M.D. examined diets around the world known to help people live longer, healthier lives—diets like the Mediterranean, Okinawa, and “Blue Zone”—and identified the four common nutritional habits, developed over millennia, that unfailingly produce strong, healthy, intelligent children, and active, vital elders, generation after generation. These four nutritional strategies—fresh food, fermented and sprouted foods, meat cooked on the bone, and organ meats—form the basis of what Dr. Cate calls “The Human Diet.” Rooted in her experience as an elite athlete who used traditional foods to cure her own debilitating injuries, and combining her research with the latest discoveries in the field of epigenetics, Dr. Cate shows how all calories are not created equal; food is information that directs our cellular growth. Our family history does not determine our destiny: what you eat and how you live can alter your DNA in ways that affect your health and the health of your future children. Deep Nutrition offers a prescriptive plan for how anyone can begin eating The Human Diet to: *Improve mood *Eliminate cravings and the need to snack *Boost fertility and have healthier children *Sharpen cognition and memory *Eliminate allergies and disease *Build stronger bones and joints *Get younger, smoother skin Deep Nutrition cuts through today’s culture of conflicting nutritional ideologies, showing how the habits of our ancestors can help us lead longer, healthier, more vital lives.
