5.0 out of 5 stars a must-have book for everyone! 13 Dec 2009
By D. Kehn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book! I bought it when it first came out more than 20 years ago and have since bought one for everyone in my family! If you are concerned with healthy eating, this is the book for you.It covers everything you'd want to know about healthy eating, including which foods to eat if you have a certain health issues. These two authors are gurus in the business and their other books are must-haves as well.

I purchased this as a gift for a friend, but did leaf through the book. I maintain that this is still one of the best books of its kind.

4.0 out of 5 stars great resource for living food as your medicine 29 April 2010
By G Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
I appreciate this book for the nutritional facts on grains, beans, seeds, fruits and vegetables, both for specific nutritional needs but also cross referencing charts for particular health issues to needed foods to meet the body's needs in that situation.

Chart for specific nutrients+ Deficiency Symptoms = food sources, etc... several ways to cross reference health and nutritional needs... you can also look up specific foods and learn about many of their specific medicinal properties.

Facts on the many different names of MSG and why you don't want this in your body (this is helpful info if you sincerely want to avoid MSG and need to know how to read it in food labels).

Another wonderful bonus I found is the detailed information on several different kinds of grains to eat. This information over the years helped me find alternative grains for my families diet and gave me clues how to use them as I studied other food science sources... Like for those of you that have wheat allergies, picking other choices. Grains for breads or cooking understanding gluten facts (gluten and protein content help in bread, cookies.. rising). I created some tasteful recipes with this as my spring board. My point being is understanding basic foundational information helps you with the other layers learned too.

Food combining to meet balanced nutrition, i.e. working with amino acids in different foods combined together makes a complete protein. (Beans and grains). The benefits of beans...

I find personally the explanations and info easy to read, so you don't need to be a science major or nutritionist expert to follow what she is sharing. Simple easy formats and charts, and so forth. Whether you use all her info. or part of it it is helpful. I have owned this book for probably 10 years and have found myself running to read and reread it's contents many times through out the years both for recipe development and problem solving specific health needs.

I even recommend it for homeschoolers (even if the teacher is still learning too) as reference for food science and health classes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended Highly 2 May 2009
By P. Feuer - Published on Amazon.com
I have made 4 recipes, and all were surprisingly flavorful, not to mention highly nutritious and visually pleasing. Reasonably priced and fresh ingredients are used. The health education at the beginning of the book is very interesting, and handy. Highly recommend this book. I am pleased with the results.
