5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!!!, 26 July 2011

This review is from: The 100 Foods You Should be Eating: How to Source, Prepare and Cook Healthy Ingredients (Paperback)
Yippee, a book that finally speaks common sense. No more confusing scientific jargon. all too common in most nutrition books. Glen speaks to you in a casual manner, no different to having a conversation around the dinner table. The information is practical, useful and applicable to everyday living.

For sure, it's not going to suit a lot of people. It lacks that sex appeal of the sensationalism and hype of the quick fixes offered by most 'nutrition' books. He doesn't promise that you'll lose twice your bodyweight within weeks. He doesn't have some super food he learned from a period spent with an ancient tribe in the Amazon. He doesn't recommend trying to source exotic foods that grow on the Eastern side of the top of the Himalayas, and are only harvestable in times of a lunar eclipse.

Instead, this book is for people who realise good health lasts longer than a few weeks initial enthusiasm. That we have lives to live, jobs to go to, children to look after on top of everything else, and that healthy living needs to fit into this. It gives a crash course in what you need to know on nutrition. What foods -all available at your local supermarket- you need to include in your diet plan and why, as well as plenty of delicious, and critically, quick and easy recipes.

For sure, this book won't turn you overnight from beached whale to beach babe.

But for anyone interested in living better, feeling better and preventing those late life diseases for you and your family, this is for you.
