Rx: A Month of Suppers

Front Cover
Trafford Publishing, Jul 25, 2006 - Cooking
This is intended as a teaching book for a basic understanding of nutritional needs, catering to novices, seniors, and those with dietary restrictions, whether rich or poor. It includes preventive health advice, and a common-sense approach to cooking good food with nothing to excess. To the best of my knowledge the science is accurate. I have not sought sponsorship from any agency, in order to preserve freedom from bias. There is no promotion of fad diets for personal gain. If groups such as the Heart and stroke foundation, Allergy foundation, or Diabetic foundation, should wish to recommend the book to their constituencies, the publishers are advised to give discounts for bulk printing. Should it prove popular, I intend to assign the revenue rights to charities, supporting education, peace activities, and international aid, irrespective of nationality or religious conviction. Future titles in progress are Traditional Foods for Coeliacs and The Contemplative Cook. This is the outcome of a very fortunate life and a hands-on cooking experience of 65 years, through war, education and a happy life with a chance to hand on my good fortune to more than my family, as did my mother who taught me to be a thrifty housewife, how to cook and to prize education as a means to help others. I like to describe myself as a Jill of all trades, but mistress of none daughter, student, physiologist, physician, wife, mother and amateur artist.
