The book begins with an introduction to the human diet, what constitutes a good diet and safe eating. Filled with great easy to skim charts and diagrams to further boost your learning. This is about 50 or so pages containing information about safe water, waxes, pesticides, GM, Sweeteners, illnesses, vegan diets, popular diets, blood sugar, oils and much more. A great base to start learning more about the diet.
The next part deals mainly with the components of protein, fats, carbs with an abundance of information of what constitutes these components, foods high in each, how the body handles them and the chemical formulas too if you need that much detail.
Next they delve into vitamins and minerals and give great (sometimes fascinating) charts on what foods contain the most of each nutrient. An example that suprised me was that when thinking about iron intake, red meat is the typical high iron favoured food which contains 2.9mg per 85 grams but cooked clams of the same serving size contain 23.8mg of iron. I've had my old knowledge bashed about a bit but reformed with what I have learned from this book.
The book then covers over the major chunk of it's contents all the foods groups like nuts & seeds, veg etc. Not only does it categorise each food type, it gives some background info, history, nutritional highlights, health benefits, how to select and store, tips on preparing, quick serving ideas and safety advice on all foods. To me that is over and above what I could ever have wanted but I'm pleased to see I now have the resource to find out this information easily.Read more ›
As a minor negative surprise I was a bit amazed to discover, that the health effects of pomegranates are not included in this book.
