Dr. J. H. Kellogg, who, along with his brother, invented the corn flake, here offers a "popular account of the travels of a breakfast through the food tube and of the ten gates and several stations through which it passes, also the obstacles which it sometimes meets." At the time he wrote this book, Dr. J. H. Kellogg was the medical director of the Battle Creek Sanitarium. Kellogg was a committed Adventist who was very interested in proper diet and health, which led to his medical vocation, but also to a keen interest to find natural remedies for disease. Among other things, he promoted vegetarianism, which led to the development of the corn flake and other breakfast cereals. He was the author of more than fifty books.
Published in 1876 in Michigan, The Hygienic Cook Book was part of the 19th century health reform movement that stressed a vegetarian diet to achieve wellness. Author John Harvey Kellogg, an American physician, took the health reformer’s diet even further by emphasizing abstinence from caffeine, alcohol, spices, condiments, dairy, eggs, and vinegar. Kellogg believed that “[c]ondiments are innutritious and irritating….they irritate the digestive organs, impairing their tone and deranging their function.” Above all, he stressed the importance of bowel health for an overall healthy body. Along with tips for reforming the diet as well as reasons for abstaining from animal products, spices, and condiments, The Hygienic Cook Book also contains wholesome recipes such as Johnny Cakes, Potato Bread, Apple Brown Bread, Graham Crackers, and Peach Toast. While Kellogg’s hygienic diet might not be for all tastes, The Hygienic Cook Book offers a fascinating look into the 19th century’s new focus on a healthier diet. This edition of The Hygienic Cook Book was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the society is a research library documenting the lives of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection comprises approximately 1,100 volumes.
