With all the talk of tinctures and tablets, it’s easy to forget a simple concept: Food is the best preventive medicine we have.

Sometimes a concentrated form of medicine such as a tincture or capsule is appropriate and necessary when treating illness, trying for a specific effect (such as energy enhancement), or making up for a deficiency. But when it comes to prevention, nothing beats a healthy diet. Scientific research confirms what our ancestors knew from experience: We are what we eat. A healthy diet means that we absorb more nutrients and regularly expel more toxins, which ultimately means we are less prone to disease.

The recipes presented here are designed to taste good and help you stay healthy. The healing ingredients fall into several categories, outlined below. You’ll find a little of everything in these easy recipes, so experiment with what best suits your taste buds and your lifestyle.
