I noticed you recommend Sally Fallon's book, "Nourishing Traditions". I picked it up to glance through and noticed she said it is best to eat meats raw. I know I could not tolerate that--is there something I am missing> Would you say you agree with most of her findings on nutrition? Very interesting book.

I, too, am reading Sally Fallon's book. I don't think she means competely raw all of the time. Just barely cooked so as not to destory benificial enzymes - ie, beef cooked rare. I enjoy raw ground beef, much to the disgust of my family. Needless to say, I use only organic beef!

Nourishing Traditions is a wonderful book! Yes I agree with a lot of the information in Sally Fallon's book. Though I myself do not eat raw meat. I think the meat has to be organic, very clean and fresh, and then she means not to cook it a lot. The more you cook it the more you destroy the enzymes, the protein and the fat until it becomes unhealthy to eat. Dr. Loomis also believes in eating meat raw or near raw. I do not suggest this. Though I do eat it more rare than I used to. I think it is unwise to eat it well down, that's for sure. Also, over time, I am eating less and less red meat, almost none. I have lost my desire for it. Follow your instincts combined with your intelligence. By the way, always cook poultry, fish and other meats well.

I'm enjoying this book very much. However... I've recently tried to bake the spiced zucchini loaf (variation of Bannan Bread). Both times I cooked it way past the suggested 1.5 hours and both times it remained mushy inside. I used less liquid the second time, and even squeezed the excess liquid from the zucchini and it still didn't work. Wasted a lot of time and precious ingredients! My oven is fine. Can anyone make any suggestions? Perhaps the ingredients and their amounts are incorrect?
