Ever since farmers first planted seeds 100,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables. Unwittingly, we’ve been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar and low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for over 400 generations. Eating on the Wild Side reveals the solution—choosing modern varieties that approach the nutritional content of wild plants but also please the modern palate. Jo Robinson explains that many of these newly identified varieties can be found in supermarkets and farmers market, and introduces simple, scientifically proven methods of preparation that enhance their flavor and nutrition. Based on years of scientific research and filled with food history and practical advice, Eating on the Wild Side will forever change the way we think about food.

Editorial Reviews

“Because recent studies have taught us that we should be getting our beta carotene and other health-builders not from pills but from well-grown food, this book is just what gardeners and cooks need.” Washington Post
“Robinson busts conventional wisdom on vegetables. Those of us who follow nutrition news have heard it all. And so it is not insignificant to say that Robinson has turned things on their proverbial heads.” Huffington Post
“From its pages, you will get a wonderful education on the changes that have taken place in agriculture over the past century, and you will discover new ways to enhance your health by choosing the best that natures has to offer us.” Sacramento Bee
