    Does not resize

    This is an awesome book but you can not change the font size so it is really hard to read on nook color.

    Great Refresher and Reference

    This has a clean, simple style that makes for very easy reading, and--more important in the long run--easy reference down the line. It is also very all-inclusive: there are foods and ingredients that aren't necessarily run-of-the-mill for us in everyday American culture, yet they have multiple specialists weigh in on them.
    So this wide variety of healthful things for our bodies is a fantastic tool. Additionally, as i mentioned multiple specialists, the authors consult many others, and it becomes like obtaining many second-opinions all at once.
    It frankly even makes a pretty and interesting coffee table book. Originally, it was recommended to me by the biggest health nut I know-he was right.

    Clear simple and easy to read.

    Great descriptions with wording a non medical person understands. The form makes it easy to remember and add to your everyday meals.

    Very informative

    "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" is very informative. Good information.

    We highly recommend "Rainbow Green"; "The Green Foods"; "The Raw Food Revolution Diet"; and "Raw 50" are very informative books. "Complete Idiot's Guide To Eathing Raw" is a good book to start with for learning about raw food. It has good recipes and a simple layout.
    We also recommend "The Sprouting Book" by Ann Wigmore; "Ani's Raw" by Ani Phyo (but be careful with using all recipes with nuts - you'll gain weight); all Moosewood books (they are not all raw, but have good raw and not raw recipes) "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home" (best simple starter); "Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special"; "Simple Suppers"; "Moosewood Restaurant Celebrates"; "Sundays At Moosewood Restaurant"; and "Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites" (although I don't recommend "low-fat" - just use healthy fat - you can see the difference "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" by Jonny Bowden)

    A wonderful reference guide for healthy eating

    I have bought six copies of this book--five as gifts for friends and family. This is a wonderful guide for general healthy eating and it also provides detailed information on nutrition involving specific ailments/health issues. The photographs are also great. I love this book.

    The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth

    Love the book, bought it as a gift for a friend, she and her husband love it too. It's a very useful book for me and it has helped me get a grip on understanding what the various fruits, vegtables, grains, and oils do for the body. It give great informaiton about what is the best for the body. It's like a food dictionary. It also helped me to know what I need to realistically buy organic. It's a great resource and tool. I tell all of my friends about it and they love it too.

    Everything in one place.

    Love this book. Instead of having to read lots of articles, different things in different places - you have everything in one book. Well written (it makes surprisingly easy and enjoyable reading), a lot of information. well resourced, objective. Even though I have a huge knowledge of what is and isn't good for you, I found this book very inspiring and motivating. Started to eat even healthier already.
