Nina Planck grew up eating traditional foods. Raw milk, free range eggs, fresh butter, in-season fruits and vegetables, and local honey. As she got older though, she strayed from this way of eating and found herself becoming a vegetarian. But, Nina became dissatisfied with this way of life and found herself to be “plump and grumpy.” And, thus she turned back to traditional foods, by way of the farmer’s market.
Nina has become the trendsetter for the return of the farmer’s market; and, her nutritional advice is sound. She includes information on produce, dairy, meat, fish, chocolate, and many other real foods. And, Nina Planck is in good company with other food writers such as Michael Pollan, Joel Salatin, and Marion Nestle. So, if you are making an effort to walk away from industrial foods and embrace ancient traditional food wisdom, this would be a good read for you. Nina’s writing style is personable and easily applicable making Real Food more like a life story than a book on nutrition.
