Cookbook begins with a few pages on text on nutrition. Then, there’s a page of instruction about collecting the right kind of cooking equipment from thrift stores. Chapters on vegetables and salads, soups and curry, casseroles, meat, fish and chicken, eggs and dairy, breads, desserts, baby food, remedies and tonics, and a quick introduction to canning. Lots and lots of homespun hippie advice.
