It is a guide for those of us who wish to return to a more natural way of eating and to avoid the illnesses of body and spirit which can be caused by eating processed foods. Especially written for Australia's climate and using ingredients which can mean or in this country, it is a synthesis of many styles of cooking and approaches to nutrition. Its basic emphasis is that food should be clean, whole, taste delicious, and be prepared thoughtfully. The emphasis is mainly on vegetarian recipes and of a balanced diet in the sense that there should be no excess, neither too much oil, too much sweet food, too much fruit or simply too much. -- from the front fold over blurb. age toning of the page edges, no other damage to describe.
