“Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.”
-Michael Pollan

What one eats has become a complex and highly political issue nowadays, and the information that is available is confusing and extremely varied.  One expert’s opinions differ from those of another.

Here are some websites that may help you formulate your own thoughts on food or provide you with some handy cooking tools:

The Weston A. Price Foundation contains recipes for traditional cooking– lacto-fermentation, bone broths, organ meats, and much more.  It also has provocative articles and conferences on nutrition and re-examining our relationship to food and ecology.

Michael Pollan’s Food Rules has a compiled list of the food policy expert’s articles, lectures, and interviews.  His voice provides a clear and succinct outline of the complexities of today’s food systems and the part we play in shaping them.

The Perfect Health Diet is a website based on the book by Drs. Jaminet, both researchers from Harvard University.  It contains detailed information on food and supplements, and backs this up with in-depth scientific research.

101 Cookbooks is a recipe journal of a wide variety of delicious foods from various cultures.  It also contains recipes that are gluten-free, low carb, and vegetarian.  A great resource for both beginner and advanced home chefs.

Food Politics is a Q&A blog by Marion Nestle, a prominent nutritionist and public health advocate.

Nom Nom Paleo contains delicious recipes for nutrient-dense, low-inflammatory meals based on the Paleo Diet (ancestral diet composed of healthy fats and minimal grains).

The Personal Paleo Code & The Baby Code, designed by functional nutritionist Chris Kresser, is an easy-to-use resource for you to create a personalized meal plan based on your personal health history, or on your desire to have a healthy pregnancy.  This site also contains well-researched articles and podcasts that go well beyond paleo.
