Exceptionally observant animal behaviorist Fred Provenza in his groundbreaking work Nourishment discusses his theory of 'nutritional wisdom', the idea that each body has an inbuilt intelligence for what it needs that works with foods to create an intricate system of flavor-feedback relationships in the pursuit of optimum health.

After a surprising experience observing the eating patterns and preferences of goats, Provenza spent the remainder of his extensive academic career studying the ability of animals (including humans) to self regulate dietary intake in relation to nutritional deficiencies and excesses.

At times verging on psychedelic, this uniquely insightful and critically well-thought-out work gives equal weight to scientific research and traditional knowledge, taking a holistic view of nutrition that is breathtakingly obvious as it unfolds to the reader.

Edition: 2018.
