Overview

Do you get confused while pouring over labels at the grocery store trying to determine the healthiest options? What makes one box of cereal better for you than another, and how are we supposed to decipher the extensive lists of mysterious ingredients on every package, and then determine whether they are safe or toxic to your family's health? With nearly 40,000 items populating the average supermarket today, the Rich Food, Poor Food -- Grocery Purchasing System (GPS), is a unique guide that steers the consumer through the grocery store aisles, directing them to health enhancing Rich Food options while avoiding health detracting Poor Food ones. Rich Food, Poor Foodis unique in the grocery store guide arena in that rather than rating a particular food using calories, sodium, or fat as the main criteria, it identifies the products that contain wholesome, micronutrient-rich ingredients that health-conscious shoppers are looking for, like wild caught fish, grass-fed beef, raw/organic cheese, organic meats, pastured eggs and dairy, organic produce and sprouted grains, nuts and seeds, while avoiding over 150 common unwanted Poor Food ingredients such as sugar, high fructose corn syrup, refined flour, GMOs, MSG, artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners, pesticides, nitrites/ nitrates, gluten, and chemical preservatives like BHA and BHT.So while other food swapping grocery guides may give the green light to eating Kellogg's Froot Loops with Sprinkles, Oscar Mayer Turkey Bologna and Hostess Twinkies based on their lower calories, sodium, and/or fat levels, you won't find these heavily processed, food-like products identified as Rich Food choices in Rich Food, Poor Food. That doesn't mean this guide to micronutrient-sufficient living leads readers to a boring culinary lifestyle. Quite the contrary! The Caltons offer Rich Food choices in every aisle of the store including desserts, snacks, sauces, hot dogs, and other fun foods!This indispensable grocery store guide raises the bar on food quality as it takes readers on an aisle-by-aisle tour, teaching them how to identify potentially problematic ingredients, while sharing tips on how to lock in a food's nutritional value during preservation and preparation, save money, and make homemade versions of favorite grocery store staples. Regardless of age, dietary preference or current health, Rich Food, Poor Food turns the grocery store and farmers market into a micronutrient pharmacy -- filling the shopping cart with a natural prescription for better health and longevity.

    I have to admit that I was pretty blown away when I read through

    I have to admit that I was pretty blown away when I read through Rich Food, Poor Food by Jayson & Mira Calton. As a nutrition & health professional, I read a LOT of books on the topic of diet and nutrition. In the past 5 years, there has definitely been an explosion of great books to hit the shelves touting the value of real, natural foods in our diet. The field of natural health and wellness is growing exponentially, mostly in part due to the great materials being put out there by a number of researchers and practitioners.

    Where I feel this book stands apart is the practicality. It’s literally a book you can take with you to the grocery store, or wherever you shop, taking the guesswork out of which foods to buy! This is where most people get confused, frustrated, and discouraged. There are tens of thousands of “food” products in our modern grocery stores. Which are the best? Which are the worst? To answer these questions on the scale that the Caltons have done here is incredibly tedious and time-consuming work.

    Their passion for nutrition, health, and helping people feel their best was evident when I read their first book, Naked Calories. In my opinion, Rich Food, Poor Food has taken this to an entirely different level! I feel this book is an ABSOLUTE MUST for anyone looking to optimize their diet, and their health! If you want to eliminate all confusion about which brands, products, and foods are the best for your body, and which are better off being left on the shelf… look no further than this easy-to-follow and practical guide!!

    Wow, what a gem of a book this is! Having read the Calton's previous book and found it so valuable, I was anxious to read Rich Food Poor Food when I found out they had written another. Superbly written, I will be using this book whenever I go shopping. Easy to follow and written for anyone regardless of your knowledge of nutrition, this book will help you make better decisions with food choices in the grocery store or shopping online. I recommend it highly!

    I received this book just 4 days ago and I have read it cover to cover 2x already. I also recommended it to maybe 50 people, no kidding aside. Plus I already eat and live this way. What a fantastic book that I highly recommend to any living walking person. You will never look at food or a grocery trip the same. Be wise, be smart and be safe about things you consume!
    Totally mind boggling how our food quality is.... this is coming from a fitness professional and def!

    This is a fundamental book that everyone should read before they

    This is a fundamental book that everyone should read before they go shopping again! It very clearly breaks down what the packaging means and what qualities you should look for in foods and why. The Caltons have done a great job of dispelling nutritional myths and explaining how this practically applies to everyday eating.
    Even if you already know a lot about nutrition and healthy cooking, you will still learn tons! This is an invaluable resource for anyone that would like to get healthier. It's also colorful and fun and you'll have a hard time putting it down!

    Highly Recommended. You must see what the Government is putting in our foods

    This book is packed with information that will open your eyes to why our health in America is so bad and why our ratio for sickness is high. Why our children are hyper,sick and irretable.
    We must wake up and speak out. GMO ( genitically modified organisms) alerts everywhere. stop listening to the news and read this book. I carry it with me to the grocery. It changed my whole outlook on what I put in my mouth and I have cured many of my medical issues just from having read this book. It is a must read for everyone
