Nourishing Foods is a compilation of articles first published in the digital periodical Plant Healer Quarterly.  Brought together here are themes of:

• Food as medicine
• Incorporating medicinal herbs and tinctures into recipes
• Traditional cooking
• Fermentation
• Eating healthy wild foods
• Sensory engagement
• The health benefits of taking pleasure in cooking and eating

This book does not promote regimented diets of any kind.  Instead, it seeks to inspire us to deepen our relationship with food, equipping us with information we need for selecting wide ranging wild and cultivated ingredients with the nutritive and medicinal effects desired, empowering each of us to be the artist/cook/creator of not just our meals but our life.

Author/Editor Jesse Wolf Hardin contends that both health and wellbeing benefit from the art of taking mindful pleasure in the sense-awakening act of preparing and dining, and that the healthiest entrees can also be the most flavorful and enjoyed!  I discuss with you the ages-old benefits of home cooking, feeling deserving of the time it takes to cook for oneself, crucial presence and paying attention, excitement and ardor, slowing and savoring… and what it really means to be nourished, and to nourish others.

Contributors include Jesse Wolf Hardin and 18 exemplary traditional cooks, practicing herbalists, wild foods gatherers and food historians:

Jereme Zimmerman, Samuel Thayer, Jenny Solidago Mansell, Kiva Rose Hardin, Phyllis Light,
Paul Bergner, Shana Lipner Grover, Juliet Blankespoor, Wendy “Butter” Petty, Bri Saussy,
Charles “Doc” Garcia, Mike Masek, Sarah Baldwin, Rebecca Lerner, Susan Evans,
Penney Garrett, Lisa Valantine, & Kristine Brown

We’ll hope you enjoy your Nourishing Foods.  Healthy, and ever so tasty.
