Originally published in 1901, the "Physical Culture Cook Book" represents the philosophy of physical culture, a combination of body-building with nutritional and health theories. Believing that “food, properly cooked, properly eaten, in proper quantity has a vast influence upon the strength, beauty and suppleness of the body [and] [t]he brain, too,…” the recipes emphasize fresh foods, whole grains, and the proper combinations of foods. This book is an antecedent to today’s slow foods and health conscious living movements.
