Interested in learning more about nutrition for health and wellness for you and your family?  

I recommend starting with these books and consulting with your health care provider.

Oatmeal, from soaked steel-cut oats. 
Recipe in Nourishing Traditions.
This list includes some of my favorite books for learning the basics of eating well.  Several items by author Michael Pollan and also Robin Green's (an acupuncturist who specializes in pediatrics) new book, Heal Your Child.

As my grandpa often says, "everything in moderation".

Moderation is a basic nutritional concept in East Asian Medicine and, therefore, Integrative Medicine.

These are some good, accessible resources for learning more about whole foods nutrition and nutrition basics from an integrative medicine perspective.

You may hear the wisdom from your grandparents or great-grandparents echo-ing through these books.

The short list:
  1. the book, In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan
  2. the book, The Omnivore's Dilemma, young reader edition by Michael Pollan
  3. the book, Food Rules by Michael Pollan
  4. the book, Heal Your Child from the Inside Out:  the 5-element way to nurturing healthy, happy kids by Robin Ray Green, L.Ac.
