This weekend I finally had a chance to finish "The Makers Diet" and I must admit that my sister in law was right. It is kind of far out there and you can't adopt everything that's in the book so you have to pick and choose what works best for you and your family. It does have a lot of good concepts so I'm totally not telling anyone not to read it. Here are a few things that caught my attention before I do a recap with what changes we are taking from it.

-One of the most important fats are the omega 3 fatty acids found in cod liver oil or ocean caught fish.

-The Makers Diet focuses on the balanced intake of natural fats occurring in ocean caught fish, cod liver oil, grass fed, organic and free-range meats. It also includes animal products such as butter, cheeses, and full-fat lacto-fermented dairy products such as yogurt and kefir, as well as raw milk and cream from goats, sheep, cows, and other biblically clean animals.

-Always choose butter over margarine or other low fat spreads.

- For those who don't get enough cold water fish, you need to take a form of high quality fish oil every day. Helps to thin the blood, inhibits blood clots, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart attacks, strokes, Lupus. Relieves migraines, fight inflammation, helps regular the immune system, and much much more.

-Grapes were the first crop planted by Noah after the flood. Grapes fight tooth decay, stop viruses and are rich in other ingredients that many researchers believed may lower the risk of cancer.

-Rest is crucial to the health of your body and soul. Sleep is an absolute and undeniable necessity of life.

- Learn to breath from your gut.
