A basic primer on delicious, nutritious whole foods. I did not read the entire volume, but I did page through it, confirming much of what I already know. Particularly appealing is the font size and images depicting the vegetables and fruits which are the mainstays of a healthy diet. Definitely worth the trouble if you are uncertain as to the health properties of the food. ( )

It took me a long time to come back to this book after the tragic abuse of English in the forward ("this problem in languaging") but I sucked it up and carried on. The information is interesting, fun and probably pretty good nutritional advice. It somehow felt too 'rah-rah' to me, though. Too USA Today. Too sound-bitey. I'm a cranky devotee of Michael Pollan, and I like my food information geeky and cloaked in dense layers of information. But this was okay. It would be good for someone just starting to discover real food after a lifetime of McDonald's and Dairy Queen meals. ( )

If you're looking to fix your diet and fill it with healthy foods this is an interesting list of those things you should consider and why. The benefits and some cautions included which is rare for a food book! He also recommends using this book in conjunction with medicine instead of instead of, again a rarity.

Interesting stuff but you need to add your own salt and as he recommends himself, check and double-check the information. ( )

If I give up bread and processed food, then all my problems will be solved. Eggs, seafood, some meats, nuts, some oils, fruit and all the veggies I want and then I’ll be healthy. But, dammit, what’s a sandwich without bread? It ain’t a sandwich. Not ready to give up bread. (Yes, carbs are addictive. Or at least bread is.) This is an informative book. I’m just not at a place in my life to go without some processing. ( )
