This review is from: Medicinal Cookery: How You Can Benefit From Nature's Edible Pharmacy (Paperback)
Clear. Concise. Fascinating scientific food facts presented in an easy to digest (sorry!) fashion. The straightforward recipes using readily accessible and staple ingredients meant I could get started straight away. There's a lot of repetition if you read the book cover to cover as I did, but that has helped me remember the information about different foods - useful when shopping. An unexpected bonus for me was that all the recipes are vegetarian. Perhaps that should have been obvious from the cover and the overview - but I was delighted not to have to adapt ingredients. But although it happens to be a great book for vegetarians, it's actually the book for anyone who wants to understand how to maintain a healthy body (or treat certain symptoms) courtesy of nature. I hope there will be a Medicinal Cookery 2 out soon.
