Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

As a Bay Area and Wine Country chef and caterer for more than thirty years, Pauli Halstead served up stellar cuisine at many of California's world-class wineries, at elegant country weddings, and for private clients. Now, inCuisine for Whole Health, Halstead shares what she learned about nourishment along the way: that the foods our ancestors ate -- wild-caught fish, grass-fed meats, pastured poultry and dairy products, and organic vegetables, nuts, seeds and berries -- are still the best choices for optimizing physical and mental health.Cuisine for Whole Healthpresents a straightforward argument for a diet that is gluten-free, refined-free, chemical, antibiotic and hormone-free, and Halstead includes many simple and delicious recipes honed from her years as a world-class chef. Topics include: How to successfully minimize carbohydrates Optimum daily protein requirements Oils and fats that improve nutrition Key ingredients and where to purchase them Foods to avoid How to save money by eating sustainably Why eating sustainably is kinder to the planet Recipes include: Poached Duck Eggs with Spinach and Parmesan Zabaglione Wild Rice and Turkey Salad with Cranberries and Mint Curried Onion and Ginger Soup Wild-Caught Hickory Grilled Salmon with Pistachio Sauce and Grilled Vegetables Baked Cilantro Chicken with Tomato-Avocado Salsa Macadamia Chicken with Tangerine-Ginger Sauce, Hawaiian Red Snapper with Sweet and Sour Marinade
