Explores the healing properties of than 175 ingredients, how to gain the maximum benefit from each food, and provides nutritious recipes designed to heal Also includes descriptions of a variety of seeds and sprouts, medicinal herbs, and fermented foods According to the authors, we need to include in our diet not only vitamins and minerals, but also the phytonutrients found in plants that support health, such as antioxidants which protect the body from free radicals They argue for a varied, seasonal diet rich in plant foods from local, organic sources organic, because they have higher percentages of nutrients to help protect against some types of cancer, dementia depression, heart disease, and arthritis To achieve this, they suggest you choose foods like multigrain breads and granola that have variety built in, and eat side dishes and condiments, such as fruit and vegetable salads, sprouted seeds, fresh salsas, pickles, and chutneys Another way to get variety, they say, is to eat stir fries, casseroles, and soups with many ingredients.Overall, I like this book The ingredient list is thorough they even point out, for example, that apricot kernels are edible and have anticancer properties I also like how they provide lengthy lists of recipes that make use of their dietary principles and target certain ailments, such as heart disease and urinary problems However, the authors need to provide scientific evidence to back up some of their claims, such as the health benefits of organic foods and phytonutrients They even make the suspect claim that these organic methods are legally defined in most countries of the world and any food that is sold as organic must be strictly regulated Really Is that true in the U.S Consumer Reports says the opposite They also tout the detox benefits of certain foods, though I have doubts that the concept of detoxifying your body is scientifically supported. I loved this bookbut I love everything DK Publishing prints The visuals are by far the best Use this like a dictionary, dip in where you need to do so This book as great descriptions of foods and excellent recipes as well Use this book to improve your cooking skills and to introduce new ingredients to your kitchen.This book would make a great gift for a foodie or a developing cook. This is about the food we eat daily but with good explanation of benefits in nut shell,after reading it one can have idea about what is he eating and what nutrition it contains,Also have lots of nutritious recipies,must read.Even good for picky eater of veggies and fruits my 6 years old kid read it and now he started to eat the veggie and fruits that he never liked. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone Beautiful pictures and clear descriptions of the fruits and vegetables The recipes were interesting as well. Notes the writers admit that we should be eating butter, liver, raw milk and meat but none of the recipes include these items it s all pomegranate, kale, quinoa and salmon like every other book out right now but that aside this book is very pretty
