I am ever more convinced that our organism knew the “rules of a correct diet” long before dieticians and nutritionists used scientific evidence to explain these “rules”.
Alimentary conditioning in recent years has distanced us from our bodies’ innate “alimentary wisdom” and is leading us to obesity and pathologies associated with nutritional disorders, such as dislipidemy, hypocholesterolemia, bulimia and anorexia.
In this little collection of recipes, apart from other related nutritional information, I am trying, together with you, to rediscover that “alimentary awareness” which can lead us towards a natural well-being.
