For nearly two million years, humans and our hominid ancestors were eating in the hunter/gatherer style of foraging for a wide variety of healthy fruits and vegetables and then hunting and scavenging for large game. However, about 9,000 years ago, humans started eating in a manner contrary to their design, while living increasingly sedentary lives. In Zero to Paleo: A Beginners´ Guide to Living the All-Natural and Gluten Free Lifestyle of Our Ancestors, Joseph SB Morse shows how we can achieve ultimate health by emulating our ancestors´ hunter/gatherer lifestyle. You´re about to embark on an insightful, and often humorous journey to discover how humans evolved to eat, what cultureless humans would eat, and how we can use that knowledge with today´s technology and wealth to develop the ideal diet. Included in this edition is a detailed section on the most common food allergies and intolerances: Dairy, egg, peanut, seafood, shellfish, soy, tree nut, and wheat (including celiac). The benefits of Zero to Paleo are immediate and include attaining an ideal weight, achieving balanced energy throughout the day, better sleep, and alleviation of symptoms from food intolerances and allergies. If you´ve been asking yourself what and how we were designed to eat, Morse´s Zero to Paleo is the answer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Lofbomm.

Modern beer has little in common with the drink that carried that name through the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Looking at a time when beer was often a nutritional necessity, was sometimes used as medicine, could be flavored with everything from the bark of fir trees to thyme and fresh eggs, and was consumed by men, women, and children alike, Beer in the Middle Ages and Renaissance presents an extraordinarily detailed history of the business, art, and governance of brewing. During the medieval and early modern periods beer was as much a daily necessity as a source of inebriation and amusement. It was the beverage of choice of urban populations that lacked access to secure sources of potable water; a commodity of economic as well as social importance; a safe drink for daily consumption that was less expensive than wine; and a major source of tax revenue for the state. In Beer in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Richard W. Unger has written an encompassing study of beer as both a product and an economic force in Europe. Weaving together the stories of prosperous businessmen, skilled brewmasters, and small producers, this impressively researched overview of the social and cultural practices that surrounded the beer industry is rich in implication for the history of the period as both a product and an economic force in Europe. The book is published by University of Pennsylvania Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Pruden. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/redw/000064/bk_redw_000064_sample.mp3.
