Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content. In this revolutionary book, Dr. Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change readers' eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in whether we should go raw or vegan, gluten-free or paleo, Leaf shows readers that every individual is unique, has unique nutritional needs, and has the power to impact their own health through the right thinking. There's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows us how to change the way we think about food and put ourselves on the path towards health. Anyone who is tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, who struggles with emotional eating, or who simply isn't satisfied with their level of health will find in this book the key to discovering how they can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit.

Nutrition, environmental impact, ethics, sustainability—it seems like there's no end to the factors we must consider when we think about our food. At the center of the dietary storm is animal-based agriculture. Was your beef factory-farmed or pasture-raised? Did your chicken free range, or was it raised in a battery cage? Have you, in short, met your meat? Most efforts to unravel the complexities of the production and consumption of animal protein tend to pit meat eaters and vegetarians against each other. The Ethical Meat Handbook seeks a middle ground, arguing that by assuming full responsibility for the food on our fork, and more importantly, the route by which it gets there, animals can be an optimal source of food, fiber, and environmental management. This hands-on, practical guide covers: Integrating animals into your garden or homestead Basic butchery: whole animal, primals, subprimals, and end-cuts, including safety and knife skills Charcuterie: history, general science and math principles, tooling up Culinary highlights: getting creative, preparing sauces, ferments, difficult cuts, and extras Eating diversely may be the most revolutionary and proactive action we can take to ensure the sustainability of our food system. The Ethical Meat Handbook challenges us to take a hard look at our individual dietary choices, increase our self-reliance and at the same time enjoy delicious food that benefits our health and our planet. Meredith Leigh is a food and farming specialist who has worked as a butcher, chef, teacher, and homesteader, all in search of realistic solutions for sustainable food.

From the Editor: I first attended Alan Savory and Stan Parson's “Rancher School” in Albuquerque, NM in the early 1980s. Since that time, and throughout my academic career, I have advocated, taught and practiced the principles of the “Savory Grazing Method (or SGM)” as it was called in those days. Only a short time after I completed the school, Alan and Stan decided to dissolve their partnership and go their separate ways. Alan founded Holistic Management International and Stan the Ranching for Profit School. SGM (now Holistic Management) is a “method” and "methods" cannot be patented. As a result, the names the principles are presented under have proliferated. Although the fundamental ecological principles have not changed since those early days, we now have managed grazing, planned grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, and perhaps a half-dozen others. (In fact, for some small degree of distinction, we choose to call what we do “Managing the Ranch as a Business with Restoration Grazing.”) Never-the-less, to this day I still find myself referring to it as “The Savory Grazing Method” in honor of the brilliant man from whose mind these ideas sprung. This guide is a detailed book review of sorts, but perhaps it would be more accurately described as an abstract that condenses 864 pages of detail into 189 pages of concentrated information. First, "Holistic Management: A New Framework for Decision Making" by Alan Savory with Jody Butterfield and "Holistic Management Handbook: Healthy Land, Healthy Profits by Jody Butterfield, Sam Bingam and Allan Savory" were condensed and summarized. Then, the summaries were complied into one with the result being organized into a logical sequence. In no way is it intended to be a substitute for the original works. They are both highly recommended and readily available from Land & Livestock International, Inc., Holistic Management International, Amazon.com and many other sources. Suggested uses might include:• lesson plan guidelines for educators• a study guide for students and • a field guide and quick reference manual for practitioners The material is organized into nine “Lessons:” Lesson 1: IntroductionLesson 2: The Strategic GoalLesson 3: The Four Fundamental Ecosystem ProcessesLesson 4: Tools for Ecosystem ManagementLesson 5: Management GuidelinesLesson 6: Infrastructure PlanningLesson 7: Grazing PlanningLesson 8: Financial PlanningLesson 9: Monitoring and ControlIn sum: the primary objective was to capture the essence of the two works in as few words as possible and in a language understandable by the reasonably intelligent person without formal education in natural resource or business management. My hope is to make these logical, common sense ideas available to a wider audience and, thereby, make a small contribution to the conservation of the world's natural resources. If I have succeeded, that would be my only small claim to originality because the ideas are from the minds and the pens of Allan Savory, Jody Butterfield and Sam Bingham. The errors are mine.
