Basically, your food’s job is to fill your physical needs; but it can’t do it completely unless it gives stimulation to the appetite and delight in the eating, and leaves a feeling of contented satisfaction that makes for better digestion. Remember, the food you eat becomes your body’s fuel – and becomes you!

Moderation is closely tied to the art of good eating. Excessive eating dulls the appetite and appreciation. No food remains “good” food when overindulgence governs the appetite, making you sluggish, sleepy and overburdening your digestive system! Nutritional science alone is not enough. It must be blended with inspiration, art and healthy imagination. For those who have never learned to blend science and art in their everyday eating, this book is written with the hope that it will guide them firmly onto the path of a healthy eating lifestyle, with healthy foods for a long, healthy, happy, fulfilled life! (Genesis 6:3)

Foods From the Far East

It is sometimes difficult to achieve the true Far Eastern flavoring because we do not always have the proper ingredients. It can be difficult to secure fresh ginger root, for instance, or the very young garlic bulbs such as the Chinese use that do not have the strong pungency of the more matured garlic bulb, or lotus leaves, small Chinese peas or bamboo shoots. Many of these ingredients are now becoming more available in the United States.

The Far East is the home of the soybean, the water chestnut, and the sesame seed, as well as some of the world’s finest health foods. The people of East Asia, like their Western neighbors, have yielded too much to popular methods of food preparation. Too many of their foods are now prepared by deep-fat frying and other dietary practices that are unhealthily. However, if we look for the best in Far Eastern cookery, as we search for the best of our own, we will find a treasure trove to prepare of delicious, wholesome food.

Whole Grains, Cereals & Rice

One of nature’s greatest gifts to mankind is the tiny, golden berry of grain. Whole wheat, rye, barley, oats – all nourishing nutlike grains – impart rich flavor to the menu and tremendous energy and healthy food value to the diet.

In modern civilization, one of the greatest crimes against food has been committed against the whole-grain! Since it contains elements that do not keep well in storage (for instance, the bran and the germ of the grains), the grain companies have established commercial practices of milling the bran and the germ right out of the grain and offering only a fraction of the original substance as an excuse for a rich, golden grain. They have robbed and refined the grains of much of their life, vitality, vitamins, and minerals, by removing part of their most precious substances! The tiny golden flake (the wheat germ), the rich, nutlike flavor of the bran, and the full-bodied flavor of the completely blended grain flavor, are lost forever in the refining processing.
