The Hemp Cookbook From Seed To Shining Seed
Todd is the first author I’ve read who truly stresses and articulates expertly the importance of not only eating hemp but eating fresh hemp and how to prepare all the basics; butter, milk, flour from a ‘sterilized’ hemp seed, a microcosm of the entire hemp fight.
Not only do we need to change the way we live as individuals and get all the bad shit we eat out of our diets, but we also need to change our communities and have more control of what is being produced and sold to us consumers.
The graphic information in this book about the nutritional superiority of hemp seed products is the best and fullest I’ve come across. The cookbook section of Dalotto’s work is as good as any. Not only does he include hemp, but he matches the meals with the right combination of green veggies and fruits containing the perfect enzyme combinations to break down EFAs more efficiently.
It’s also a wonderful hemp food directory, with passion on every page. This book shows how to carefully prepare fresh hemp food products (milk, butter) and how to use them in fresh flavorful recipes that the author has been preparing for years. A perfect match for any cook who wants to make good health hempen.
