Through the winter, I’ve had a bit more time to browse through books, and I’ve been enjoying one of the newest on my shelf- Health for Godly Generations.
Renee’s book is a comprehensive collection of research advocating a desire to glorify God through “real food” eating, a sustainable lifestyle, and other healthy choices, which will not only benefit us, but generations to come. Here is her philosophy:
“Real, whole, natural, traditional, ethical, nutrient-dense, flavorful foods. From organic plants and clean animals. Local and seasonal, fresh and handcrafted, when possible. The diet we were designed for. Genesis 1:27-29 & 9:3.” –Health for Godly Generations
Renee references many of my favorites, including Nourishing Traditions, The Coconut Oil Miracle, The Maker’s Diet, and In Defense of Food, among others. I’ll definitely be keeping this book available on our homeschool book shelf as my children grow older. (We’re already sifting through dubious health claims of conventional textbooks as we study diet & digestion for our kindergarten curriculum!)
Honestly, as I sit here reviewing the book, I’m munching on a bit of real dark chocolate (and a big glass of water). I loved seeing “dark chocolate” listed as a “health food” in one of her helpful charts in the book!
I stocked up with some bulk shopping this past week, and have started some freezer-cooking. As I filled my grocery cart, I kept some of her current research and advice in mind, and eyed those labels a bit closer; especially as I selected some frozen fish!
Renee has offered to give away one copy of Health for Godly Generations to a Frugal Granola reader!
