“cholesterol” from Tom Valentine, Facts on Fats and oils

Posted in Books, Food, General, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

I’m going to share this as it is written from my “Nourishing Traditions” cookbook loaded with informative and interesting facts.  “Cholesterol is especially important to our brains. That’s right, today’s “most hated” substance is essential to the human brain function. In fact, infants need a constant supply cholesterol during brain development, which is why mother’s breast milk is so high in it. Modern science tripped over itself somehow when it names cholesterol the bugaboo of heart disease. Nature doesn’t make that kind of mistake- but man does. (Most soy-bsed infant formulas contain no cholesterol.)

Animal products are important sources of bodybuilding elements in the diet. Good sources of vitamin A and D and rich in minerals, vitamin B6 and B12. Meat, eggs and milk with the fat they come with for proper assimilation.

I have been a big believer in a balanced diet, and this is another reason to make sure you don’t cut out all your fats.  If you can eat organic that would be beneficial, even still, better to eat a variety of food to cover all your nutrient needs.



Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
