A primer to the current traditional food movement, Eat Right: The Complete Guide to Traditional Foods, with 130 Nourishing Recipes and Techniques (Kyle Books, 2017) by Nick Barnard, offers achievable and simple ideas, recipes and advice on how to be fully nourished by traditional foods in a modern world. Today more people want to know where their food comes from and are interested in more traditional methods of cooking, which is at the heart of Barnard’s debate on food production and consumption. The following excerpt is from Chapter 6 “Vegetables and Sides.”

The life-giving energy of the sun in summer is captured within the root vegetables of winter. Eat as many of these vegetables as you can throughout winter and into the lean months of early spring. Vary your repertoire, and serve winter vegetables raw, cooked, or fermented. The truly seasonal weekly winter vegetable drawer may not look exotic, but it will be full of goodness, energy, and nutrients to see you through the cold short days. For variety and a little addictive pungency, make a garlic dipping sauce.
