Title: Nourishment – What animals can teach us about rediscovering our nutritional wisdom
Author: Fred Provenza
Blurb: Renowned animal behaviourist Fred Provenza spent his academic career researching how animals respond to an intricately tuned system of flavor-feedback relationships at the cellular level – a nutritional wisdom that guides them to eat the appropriate combinations of foods to meet their dietary needs. But what about us? Do humans still possess the wisdom to select nourishing diets?
In “Nourishment”, Provenza extends his theory of nutritional wisdom to human food selection and our health, calling into question blind adherence to academic, corporate, and political authorities. He embarks on a paradigm-shifting exploration of an external wisdom that can nurture the human body and spirit in a world of perpetual change.
